Issue: 29 - 14 Apr 2009 cholesterol and increase your good cholesterol.
 
We all know that green tea has a huge amount of benefits, but did you know that drinking minimum of 6 cups of green tea daily can reduce your bad Scientific Studies CSIRO studies have shown that antioxidants in green tea can lower cholesterol in rabbits by increasing the amount of a liver protein that works to clear cholesterol from the blood.
 
Although research overseas has already linked green tea consumption with lower cholesterol levels, the CSIRO results are the first to identify the mechanism responsible.
Senior Research Scientist Dr Paul Roach says green tea's high concentration of strong antioxidants called catechins increase the liver's LDL receptors, a major mechanism for cholesterol control. In turn these receptors work to decrease LDL, the so-called "bad cholesterol" in the blood. "The LDL receptor binds LDL and clears it from the bloodstream," says Dr Roach. Catechins are a type of polyphenol, a class of antioxidant and the main constituent of green tea. Black tea contains much lower levels of catechins because they are oxidised during processing.
 
The results of the rabbit study confirm previous CSIRO findings that green tea catechins increased the amount of LDL receptors in cultured human liver cells. Both studies were undertaken by PhD student Christina Bursill of the University of Adelaide's Physiology Department. Studies by other researchers suggest that humans could lower their cholesterol levels by up to 10 per cent if they habitually consumed between 5 to 10 cups of green tea daily. "The next step is to test the effectiveness of our green tea extract in humans with high blood cholesterol" says Dr Roach.

There are many ways of losing body fat, starting with dieting, exercise and supplementation.

Let’s start with supplementation, over the last 25 years of working as a naturopath in a very busy clinic, I have found the most effective supplement for breaking down body fat is Natural HGH Complex. Not only does this preparation help to break down body fat, but it also picks up your metabolism and helps to balance your hormonal system, I’m sure you would agree that these are two major areas if not working at an optimum will have a large affect on you being able to break down the excess fat on your body.

Natural HGH Complex also builds lean muscle which in turn helps to give you that trim look.

There are so many different ideas on dieting and exercise and I feel that each diet and exercise regime needs a blog on there own, so my aim is not to touch on that subject in this blog, but I came across a very interesting book called “Flip The Switch” which gives a total different slant on breaking down body fat.

Please click on the link and have a read of this book, as I would be very interested to hear from you what you points of view are on what they have written.

There has been a lot of research into GH (Growth Hormone) and the effects that this hormone has on the body.

Here are just a few effects GH has on the body:

  • Anti-aging
  • Building lean muscle
  • Breaking down body fat
  • Endurance and recovery after exercise
  • Increased Energy
  • Improved sleep

The main point we are looking at today is whether high intensity exercise will increase your GH levels which in turn increases your muscle mass as well as all the other positive effects this hormone has on the body. Here is a review of an article by Wesley C Hymer, Richard E Grindeland, Bradley C Nindl, and William J Kraemer about Growth Hormone Variants and Human Exercise.

 

I would be interested to hear what you think of the article and also what your point of view is to the question does exercise increase your GH levels.
