Drinking This Twice a Day Can Help You Get in Shape Faster, Says a Doctor

The idea that an unhealthy diet can derail even the most intense of workout schedules isn't a new one. But if you'd like your diet to do the opposite—i.e., enhance your time spent at the gym—look no further than this "superhuman" post-workout shake from Josh Axe, DNM, DC, CNS.

Axe carefully chose all six ingredients with the specific intent of stimulating the production of your growth hormone, which "decreases in production after the age of forty," he explains on his website. "Low GH levels are to blame for many signs of aging … so if you want to age slower and feel younger, you must keep GH high." In fact, sluggish GH production can result in a loss of energy, an increase in fat, and decreased mental clarity, he says.

On the bright side, "there are effective, all-natural ways to increase your body's production of GH. One of the best ways is with what you eat." His specially formulated shake checks all the boxes and will leave you feeling stronger and more energized. Read up on how to make Axe's "superhuman" shake below:


3 raw eggs
1 scoop organic protein powder (preferably whey)
4 to 8 oz. kefir or yogurt
1 banana
3 tbsp. almond butter
1 tbsp. flax meal or chia seeds
1 tsp. cinnamon


Mix these seven ingredients together thoroughly in a juicer or blender (we love Hurom) and enjoy! Axe recommends drinking this twice a day for maximum results.
