Hyperventilation and Breath Holding Increase HGH Release


If like me you follow the methods of Wim Hof The Iceman, or do yoga pranayama or Chinese qi gong, this will interest you.

Djarova et al studied the effects of hyperventilation and breath-holding on human growth hormone, cortisol, and acid-base balance.

They had subjects do three different experiments:

1. Three minutes of hyperventilation.
2.  Three maximum voluntary breath-holding bouts, separated by 1-minute periods of normal breathing.
3. Three minutes of hyperventilation immediately followed by maximal voluntary breath-holding.

They found that 30 minutes after either of these practices, their serum growth hormone levels increase 4-5 fold:


Yoga and qi gong practitioners have traditionally maintained that breathing exercises increase vitality, promote health and extend healthy lifespan.  Human growth hormone would definitely produce these effects.  Your body is a pharmacy, its just a matter of learning how to use it.
