Default testosterone and growth hormone

I know very well the effect testosterone has on bodybuilding, in terms of building lean, muscle. But I've also heard about the growth hormone and bodybuilding. I just wanna know more about how the growth hormone helps to build muscle, and what foods I should eat in order to increase it, as well as what foods increase testosterone.

Quote:
Human Growth Hormone is the most abundant hormone produced by the pituitary gland. This gland is located in the center of the brain. HGH is a very complex hormone because it is made up of 191 amino acids - making it fairly large for a hormone. In fact, it is the largest protein created by the pituitary gland.

Steroids are a different entity altogether. I'm sure I don't need to elaborate.

IGF-1 can increase protein synthesis. However, the effect depends on the presence of the growth hormone. The duo of hormones (HGH and IGF-1), productively increases protein synthesis. The effect of protein synthesis can drastically increase lean body mass.

The Benefits of HGH:

Firmer, tighter and supple skin - HGH restores the thickness and elasticity in the skin. Deeper wrinkles recede as the face transforms in contour.

An increase in lean body mass - The body's configuration and fat composition are improved within 2 months by HGH.

Mental astuteness and memory power - The nervous system and the brain are comprised of cells called neurons. Although they are permanent, they never re-grow. HGH can activate the repair and rejuvenation of neurons. Memory, learning and intelligence depend on adequate supplies of HGH; therefore, it affects the proteins produced in the brain for storing our memories.

Protects cells - HGH activates a cellular defense force called protease inhibitors, which prevent free radicals from doing their damaging work.

Enhanced energy levels - HGH has an anti-depressive action on the brain and an intense effect in increasing energy and a sense of well-being.

Fat reducer without exercise - HGH fires up the metabolism to former highs. First, it reduces the abdomen, hips, waist and thighs. And then, muscle mass is increased.

Muscle building - HGH tremendously increases the effects of exercise and muscle building, muscle strength, endurance and energy.

Restful sleep - HGH users report that their body requires less sleep as a result of their overall energy level. HGH aids in balancing sleeping patterns.

Some people believe GABA, Nitric oxide, and ZMA help increase growth hormones, topic was brought up here http://www.bodybuilding.net/suppleme...Growth+hormone

I would say no because from what I understand from kre-alkalyn's website is that its just a type of creatine, and Animal M-Stak mixed with that won't kill you

Thanks Verbatim, but does it mean I should stop taking my Kre-alklayn? I am scared that there might be a negative reaction

Kre-alklayn won't cause anything negative to happen when combined with methoxy (which Im almost sure is the ingredient behind Animals M-Stack...Methoxyflavones)

I know for one that I had a ZMA which had methoxy in it and I didn't experience any negative reactions while using it with a creatine product. Nothing to be scared of
