When it comes to cholesterol, virtually everyone is aware that too much LDL cholesterol is an indicator of heart disease and that optimizing LDL/HDL levels is critical for heart health.

Today we’re going to discuss a simple, science-backed alternative solution to lowering LDL levels – and it’s all about protein.

What Raises and Lowers Growth Hormone Levels Naturally?

What Raises and Lowers Growth Hormone Levels Naturally?

by Dr. David Minkoff April 08, 2021 6 min read 0 Comments

Growth Hormone (GH or HGH) is one of the most important hormones in regard to muscle gain and fat loss for men and women:

 It increases muscle mass, increases protein synthesis, strengthens bone, internally makes your metabolism “younger,” and is, to a large degree, “anti-aging” in its effects. And it does this in large part by stimulating the uptake of amino acids in the cells. 

In fact, GH is so closely tied to amino acids, that not only does GH stimulate the uptake of aminos, but taking aminos stimulates the release of GH to get the cells to take in the aminos.

Intermittent fasting has become increasingly popular over the last couple of decades, and many people are curious whether it is right for them.

Those who believe they have a “slow” metabolism are especially concerned that any form of fasting might further slow the metabolism, leaving them feeling groggy or less energetic, not to mention hungry.

Surprisingly, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Intermittent Fasting & Building Lean Muscle for Women: What You Need to Know

by Dr. David Minkoff January 14, 2021 4 min read 0 Comments

If there is anything society has come to realize over the last century, it is that women are just as powerful, smart, ambitious, and capable as men. And while society as a whole is still catching up as far as true equality, the facts are evident when you look at some of the most incredible and influential people today.

When it comes to fitness, however, men and women are not the same. The natural, physiological differences necessitate unique approaches to achieve optimal results. While the fundamental science behind attaining a shredded, lean physique is basically the same for both sexes, the exact steps and application require careful consideration.

Healing Our Achilles Heels: 5 Step Healing Protocol

Healing Our Achilles Heels: 5 Step Healing Protocol

by CJ Hitz December 18, 2020 4 min read 0 Comments

One thing I've learned is that injuries can be great teachers. There are so many lessons to be learned from the injuries we experience. They force us to slow down and evaluate our bodies on a deeper level. Like many, I'm guilty of sometimes taking my healthy days for granted. When we pick up an injury, we're suddenly motivated to learn everything we can about that specific injury. We're also dedicated to the necessary rehab it will take to overcome the injury and strengthen our weak areas.

As with many injuries, I've learned there are no "quick fixes" for my stubborn Achilles. Over the years, I've also learned there are no "get fit quickly" schemes.

Intermittent Fasting and HGH: Strength and Wellness Body Hack

Intermittent Fasting and HGH: Strength and Wellness Body Hack

by Dr. David Minkoff December 18, 2020 4 min read 0 Comments

Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of fasting and eating. It is not a diet per se, as an intermittent fasting program does not dictate which foods to eat. 

While the concept of intermittent fasting might sound strange at first, the logic becomes clear when you think back to the evolutionary track of the human body. In the not-too-distant past, three meals per day was not the norm. People would eat when they had food, and hunters could go days without food while maintaining total mental acuity and physical stamina. And while we don't want to revert to these extremes, both science and logic indicate that the human body is not built to eat every few hours.

Back in January, few of us even considered the possibility that we might find ourselves fully immersed in a worldwide pandemic known as COVID-19. Our world has been forced to scramble and adjust in all kinds of ways. There’s really no “pandemic manual” that perfectly guides us through the process.
