As a speaker, it can be challenging to endure. You can too easily end up adopting poor eating habits, fatigued, overweight, foggy headed and stuck in the mode of “just getting through the day.”
Speaking has many rewards which is why you signed up for this profession in the first place – encouraging others to new heights in their careers, being a direct benefit from that theme of positive reinforcement, motivating professionals to increase their bottom line, educating and training your audience to see things in a new, more positive light and so on.

- Boost your “re-charge” hormone by 600%!
HGH, human growth hormone, is a hormone that is produced in the pituitary gland in the brain. It is essential to keep organs healthy, muscles strong and your energy up, for starters.
With a healthy supply, HGH helps you to stay youthful and vital by helping you: increase endurance, speed recovery, kick start your metabolism, produce youthful and vibrant skin, shrinks fat cells, gain the energy you used to have, and overall re-charges your body into drive!
As you age, the pituitary gland shrinks so it stops producing as much HGH. This causes your natural production of HGH to plummet. By the time you become middle age you have lost 85% of your HGH stores and continue to lose 2% every year!
The good news is that there are safe and effective ways to stimulate your body’s production of it. One way is with amino acids.
A special blend of four amino acids has the potential to spike human growth hormone (HGH) levels by more than 600%!
To boost your HGH levels naturally, try taking a combo of the following amino acids that researchers have deemed the most powerful anti-aging amino acid combination. Remember the acronym G-O-A-L when shopping for these supplements, and make sure you find the following:
Glycine keeps muscles strong and allows you to store more energy. It also promotes a good night’s sleep. Adequate sleep is crucial as it is another natural way to produce more HGH.
Ornithine helps remove toxins from the body, which can otherwise zap your energy.
Arginine keeps energy levels up by helping to regulate blood pressure so your heart doesn’t have to work as hard. This amino acid may also help decrease body fat, another energy drain.
Lysine aids in turning fatty foods into energy.
Look for a supplement that contains at least 2,000 mg of these amino acids combined.
Without a healthy steadfast recovery, you can’t fulfill your mission of inspiring others to be the best they can be! So get out there and ROCK your stage with vibrant health and confidence!
