For example, a one-tenth of human growth hormone is produced in a 70-year-when compared with a 20-year-old. This in turn also lowers energy levels and stores body fat. Consuming these berries boosts production of human growth hormone. This is mainly possible because the berries are a rich source of potassium which is important for health. If your body has insufficient potassium level it interferes with the pituitary gland that is responsible for growth hormone production.
