Question: Can HGH increase height in adults in their 20's?
I'm 23 years old 5'10". I've been that height since I was 18. Since I had Crohn's disease and took prednisone for more than 3 years I think It may have affected my bone mass.
If my genetics followed its normal biological path, I should have been 6'2. I'm researching on the benefits of HGH. I'm looking to increase my height by at least an inch or two. At age 23 can HGH enhance my height or is it too late.?
Answer: You may find some web sites claiming their product can increase height substantially in adults, I heard where one site was claiming their non-HGH product could increase height by 6 inches, but I have seen no evidence that supports any product increasing long bone growth in adults and so I wouldn't recommend you waste your money on such a product.
The truth is, long bone growth occurs during the growth and development stage of life only, which is during childhood and adolescence. During this stage HGH plays an important role in making bones grow. After the growth and development stage of life is completed, usually between the ages of 18 up to possibly 25, long bone growth is completed. HGH then helps to keep the bones healthy and affects bone density.
When taking the HGH injections some older adult patients did see a small increase in height, but the increase was only about 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches at the most, and it took at least one year of HGH injection therapy to see that improvement. This is because the small increase in height they saw was not caused by long bone growth, but was caused by an increase in bone density, which was probably more of a restoration back to their more youthful bone density. By the way, bone density increases very slowly.
I have heard some positive reports in regards to increased height from teenagers who take our product with their physicians approval, so I believe it may help long bone growth for those still in their growth and development phase, however, after the growth phase is completed any increase in height would be the result of increased bone density.
If your long bones have not yet fused then the HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 may help to optimize your HGH and IGF-1 so you get the most growth out of the time you have left until bone fusion.
Besides speaking about a homeopathic HGH product you might also want to speak with your doctor regarding the proper diet and perhaps nutritional supplements that help provide the building blocks your body will also need in order to optimize growth. Besides the proper amount of growth hormone the body also needs the proper nutrients.
The other thing you could do is have an X-ray to see if your long bones have fused. If they haven't fused then perhaps a boost in your HGH (if needed) could help.
I have heard positive reports from some in their teens and early twenties whose growth plates were still open and they took our HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 product. Of course this is hard to measure since we don't know what their growth rate would have been without the product, but they reported that it helped.
In summary, once the long bones fuse there won't be any additional natural long bone growth. Once fused the only way HGH can increase height is by increasing the bone density, and this would not be recommended for someone who has an optimum density already. It is good for those who have lost bone density due to aging or health issues though.
Question: What is the best HGH for a 22 year old?
I am 21 years old now, turning 22 in May. I am currently about 5'6" and was wondering what product is best for me so that I can grow a few inches?
In the past I quit playing baseball because of my height, I was always thinking, "why am I playing? I haven't seen many professional baseball players this tall." Well I would just love to be taller, at least 5'9". That would be ideal for me. So what would be my best shot at growing taller? Which HGH product?
Answer: Thanks for visiting our forums. Due to your young age I must first say that I don't recommend you take our products or any HGH products without the consent of your doctor.
That being said I do know how important this is to you, so I recommend you see your doctor, speak with him about this issue, and follow your doctor's advice.
Please be aware that at your age any long bone growth time you may have left will be short so I recommend seeing your doctor right away. He can check to see if your long bones have closed. Once the long bones have closed any increase in height could only be caused by increasing bone density.
As for which product to take, my recommendation would be our HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 product, with your doctor's approval, because it does not carry the risks of the injections, it contains homeopathic growth hormone, and it contains velvet deer antler.
Velvet deer antler contains many important growth factors including bone growth factors.
If your long bones are not yet closed I would also recommend you speak with your doctor about possibly adding a nutrition regimen, to make sure you supply your body with all the building blocks it needs to build healthy bone.
Also, your doctor will want to follow your progress and monitor your IGF-1 level.
Question: Can human growth hormone increase height at 29 years old?
I am a 29 year old male. I am in good shape and work out regularly, no medical conditions. I am 5'4 and thinking about taking HGH injections to increase my height. Is this a good option to increase height? If so, what's the best recommended product and where can they be obtained? Thanks in advance.
Answer: Well, at age 29 I am sorry to have to tell you that your bones are probably already fused, and once the long bones fuse they won't be growing longer, no matter how much growth hormone or anything else you take. The only bone growth that might occur in an adult whose growth plates have closed and they took large doses of human growth hormone injections would probably be an unnatural and painful growth of the joints, along with other side effects.
I get this question a lot from men and women in their late 20's and I hate to be the carrier of this news but I have to tell the truth as I know it as a registered nurse of many years, including many years working with HGH therapies.
The only way you will know for sure whether your bones have fused is to have your doctor do an Xray. I wish you the best.
Question: Can I increase my height a few inches with HGH?
I am 22 yrs old. I am just 5' 4" so i really want to increase my height for a few inches. I do not mind it is just bone density or long bone growth, as long as I can be taller. Do you think HGH can help to enhance my height?
Answer: We know that HGH can increase height in those still in their growth and development stage.
Also, physicians who have treated aging adult patients with HGH therapy have reported that it has increased the height of their patients by increasing their bone density, which makes the bones thicker.
You notice I said "aging adults", so these patients may have lost bone density due to the aging process and the HGH therapy was helping to restore it.
I would not recommend anyone your age take the injections to increase height. The risks are too great and you could do damage to yourself.
Concerning taking non-injection HGH products, I wish I could give you a definite answer about whether our product or any other non-injection product will increase your height but I cannot.
I have heard positive reports from some young clients who take our product with their doctor's permission but that is no guarantee as to how well our product or any other product will work for you, since everyone is different.
Like I have said before, for those who are looking for the product that will give them the best chance at increasing their height safely without injections I believe our HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 product is the best, but I wouldn't recommend any young people take it or any product without their doctor's permission.
Question: How should I ask my doctor about HGH?
I am 21 years old and roughly 5'3. I guess I am in the same situation as the previous poster.
I am wondering if I go see my family doctor how exactly should I approach this matter to him? I am wondering if he would understand which HGH product I am interested.
Answer: It will depend on how knowledgeable your doctor is in regards to human growth hormone and the therapies available to increase HGH in the body.
If you tell your doctor you wish to take the injections I would expect him to warn you of the risks and side effects of taking hormone replacements, and I agree. I would be shocked if he wrote you a prescription for the injections.
Unfortunately, medical schools do not focus much on helping patients to obtain optimum health and fitness, they focus more on waiting until diseases and health conditions occur and then treating those diseases or conditions.
That means many MD's do not have more than the most basic knowledge about safe and natural therapies and supplements that help the body to optimize and heal itself.
I would just tell your doctor that you are concerned about your height and you realize that your time to grow taller is running out very soon, if it isn't already too late, and you would like to take a safe homeopathic product or dietary supplement that may help to boost your own HGH release to your optimum level.
You may also wish to tell him that a homeopathic product shouldn't cause your HGH to go too high. Hopefully he will know that homeopathic products are considered very safe, and some such as ours are also FDA registered and regulated.
Question: Will HGH Plus help me to increase height?
I'm 20 years old and my height is currently 5'5". I'm considering trying HGH Plus and hopefully get an inch or inch and a half added to my height. I have a few questions like; How long would it take to see results, how much of the HGH should I take in a day, and is it ok to exercise while on it?
Answer: Have you had your doctor do an X-ray to see if the epiphyseal plates on your long bones are still open? If not I recommend you have this checked first. If they are still open I recommend you let your doctor know you are considering taking our HGH product to help boost your growth rate while you still can.
You asked how long it would take for you to see results. I cannot know this because every person is different. I have heard a few reports from clients who said they saw increases in their height during the first few months but long bone growth is usually a slow process.
Regarding the dose, the recommended dose should be sufficient, or the dose your doctor recommends.
You may indeed exercise while taking our HGH supplements, and it is even recommended.
If you decide to try our product (with your doctor's permission) I hope it will work very well for you.
Question: which high end quality HGH supplement is worth taking and actually does what it says?
I'm new to HGH supplements. My height is 5'8", age 23. I credit my self for being much stronger than I look due to the fact that my body type prevents lean sculpted muscles shown on many magazine covers and actors because mine type is endomorphic, the hardest out of the three to tone down fat loss and gain striking and rippling muscles. I researched a lot of benefits from HGH such as thicker hands, wrist and head size which mine are reasonably small especially when I cut short my hair so those are some things I am hoping the HGH products can help with.
I also read that it strengthens bones immensely and widens them which adds height. I know my plates are just starting to fuse, that's why I am meaning to try the growth hormone now before its permanently too late and maybe cheat in an inch higher before it locks for good. This minor detail may or may not work but I'll never know unless I try. And lastly is to grown lean muscle easier and faster, better, stronger lol. Sorry for rambling on.
Answer: First I must say that at your young age I recommend you consult your doctor before taking any type of HGH therapy.
Now, regarding your question, if you know your plates have not yet fused you may be able to boost your growth rate during these last months or years you have left in your growth stage, that is if your long bones are still growing. I have heard positive reports from clients who are taking our HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 product.
For those looking for the musculoskeletal benefits you mentioned I believe the HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 product is the best choice of a non-injection product. Besides the HGH this product also contains recombinant IGF-1, IGF-2, and deer antler velvet. Antler velvet is the best known natural source of IGF-1 & IGF-2 as well as other important growth factors including bone growth factors, and since it is homeopathic it is the safest type of HGH therapy available.
If you decide you wish to try the HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 be sure to tell your doctor that the product is an FDA registered over-the-counter homeopathic product. He should then understand that the product is safe and doesn't carry the risks of the injections. If you would like more information please click the link above.
Question: Can HGH increase height in women?
I'm 5'8" to 5'8.5" and 25 yrs old. I really need to increase my height to 5'9" as I'm a working model and an extra 1/2 inch to 1 inch makes all the difference in this industry. Is this product something that could really bridge that gap for me? Perhaps if combined with proper exercise, diet, and chiropractics even? I don't have health insurance currently, so injections or an x-ray seeing if my growth plates are still open are out of the question.. Since 2006 I've grown 1/2 an inch, so I'm hopeful HGH can still work, but I need a 2nd opinion, and a professional one is helpful. Thank you!
Answer: Since you won't be checking your growth plates we cannot know for sure if your long bones can still grow, but if they have not yet fused then a good HGH product may help to boost any growth time you have left.
I do want to stress that you are much too young for HGH injections so I am happy you are not considering them.
The great thing about taking a high quality homeopathic product is that if your bones have already fused it won't cause any unhealthy bone growth. If there is room for improvement a homeopathic product may help your body to reach its optimum height, but if not it shouldn't cause you any harm.
Even though homeopathic HGH supplements are very effective for the majority of people they are also the safest type of growth hormone therapy because they work with the body to stimulate the body's own power to heal and improve itself. Even so, as always I do recommend those in their twenties consult their doctor about taking any HGH therapy.
Please be sure to tell your doctor that you are considering a homeopathic product, not the injections.

Follow-up question: Ok, well I do hope it helps! I see there are two different sprays, one with velvet deer. Which one do you recommend for my situation?
Follow-up answer: For anyone looking to increase height I recommend the HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 because the velvet deer antler in the product contains bone growth factors.
Follow-up question: I just got my ProBLEN with the velvet deer antler in the mail and started today! Are there any vitamins I should avoid? I take multivitamins and B vitamins like biotin. Should I also get calcium supplements? When do people usually see changes in height when using this product? Thanks!
Follow-up answer: You should continue with your vitamins and nutrients. Remember, HGH is a hormone, not a nutrient. You should try to ensure your body is receiving the building blocks it needs.
Concerning your question about when people see changes in height, every person is different and the benefits one will see depends on various factors.
I have heard reports from young people still in their growth phase noticing benefits in threee months, but bone growth can be a slow process so it may take several months, depending on the situation.
Question: Can HGH increase height by making my discs thicker?
My question is this that someone said that if you hang regularly you can gain 3-5 inches over a period of time. But what if you took hgh injections? These are proven to make the discs even more thicker. Any advice you can give as I'm starting this routine soon. Thanks
Answer: It would depend on your age. HGH is good at increasing the bone density (thickness) of people who have lost it due to aging or disease, so it is really restoring the bone density they have lost.
In the case of young people, they need to be very careful and have their doctor monitor them closely.
The reason is because if a young person already has a bone density that is optimum for them and they start taking HGH injections there is a chance that any bone growth could be an unhealthy bone growth.
Regarding gaining height by hanging upside down, that is usually due to stretching the spine out. Especially for people who are older, gravity has been pulling them to the ground for years and when they start a hanging program they are helping to stretch their spine back out.
Follow-up question: I want to take hgh to grow a few inches perhaps 3-4. I just turned 18 so i have a good chance. Would you have any advice for me? I have just consulted with a few people and they took it for a year and grew 4-5 inches in a year with hgh use.
Follow-up answer: If you are asking about taking the injections it is very important that you take them only under the care of your doctor. He/she will figure the correct dose for you based on several tests he will check. This will decrease the chance of you suffering any side effects.
Some non-injection products should help to boost your growth rate also but you should still consult your doctor. A good homeopathic HGH spray product can be very effective and shouldn't cause any side effects.
If you take one of the amino acid pill products (HGH secretagogues) you will need to take them as directed and be mindful about cycling them since taking large doses of amino acids can overwork the liver and kidneys. With any product you take you should monitor your IGF-1 level, which is a reflection of HGH in the body.
