Today’s Question: hGH, or human growth hormone, is kind of a wonder hormone. When it’s produced naturally, it builds muscle, burns fat, raises energy, and maintains lower blood sugar levels. It’s hard to increase our body’s production of hGH, but which of the following foods contain arginine, an amino acid that supports healthy hGH levels? Choose all that apply.
Answer to Friday’s Question: We definitely did some grilling over the July 4th weekend — did you? But hopefully you didn’t let your meat get charred. Charred portions of meat could contain heterocylic amines, chemicals linked to cancer. You can prevent charred meat by pre-cooking your food in the microwave a little to reduce grilling time, and by marinating your meat in a rosemary marinade, which can stop the formation of heterocylic amines. Also, make sure you cut off portions of charred meat.
