Default Re: Shouldn\'t alcohol help muscle growth?

Eh, thanks. Most of that I have no idea about, I must have missed that article.

If I remember, the effects of alcohol on melatonin are much of what reduced HGH levels during sleep; as after intoxication, the body has trouble achieving stages of sleep properly. The effects of sleep, then, also become less prominent-- one of these being HGH.

It seems then, that drinking in the mornings would technically boost overall HGH levels?

(Though, it certainly wouldn't be worth it, anyways. That is, due to all the other disadvantages accompanying, and the existence of other ways to stimulate GABAergic systems)
