Getting the Most out of Improved InnerPower and InnerPower Plus
Q I have been taking your InnerPower formulations for many years now, and the results have been great. With the inclusion of the new ingredients, however, especially the soluble fiber in InnerPower Plus, I’m confused about how to use the new formulations.
If I understand correctly, the idea of a GH-releaser is to amplify a natural release, such as one generated by peak-output exercise, sex, or sleep. Furthermore, since I’ve been led to believe that the way to get the most out of GH is to build one critically high peak, wouldn’t slowing down the absorption of the nutrients by the inclusion of fiber conflict with achieving the highest peak? If so, wouldn’t this interfere with optimal release? Please explain how to get the most out of both formulations.
A Not necessarily. The highest peak occurs naturally during deep sleep, when growth hormone (GH) levels increase by up to about five times their normal daytime levels. The latter tend to be low and fairly constant but are subject to natural bursts in response to any of the three major stimuli for GH release: physical exertion (including sexual activity), stress, and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). The benefit of GH during these situations, when energy demands outpace the body’s glucose reserves, is conservation of glucose for the brain and provision of fatty acids as an alternative energy source for muscles.
Quoting Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw, “InnerPower Plus is for people subject to prolonged and unusually high levels of oxidative stress. Improved InnerPower is more suitable for short-term needs. It’s the best choice for preparing for moderate exercise of half an hour to an hour or so.”
These are just general guidelines, of course, and other circumstances may prevail. In an especially intense but brief workout, e.g., you might try InnerPower Plus instead of the improved InnerPower. Ultimately, you must decide what works best for you and how it makes you feel.
