Hi guys,

I'll set the scene for you at the moment. I'm 20 years old, coming up to 21 in December. I'm currently 5ft7, which I realize is far from 'small' in some contexts, as you see males around the 5ft3 mark. So in a way I was gratuitous for being my height, as it could be worse.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but my knowledge is that once your growth plates have fused together no matter what you take, you ain't getting any taller. Now, the NHS (National Health Service) website says males stop growing around 17. But other averages say between 17 to 25. Obviously this is very subjective.

The issue is I am insecure about my height (1st world problems ay), now I am aware I will/could/should develop security about this, but I want to look down the other root. Actual height increase. I've looked at HGH a little bit, but I am very wary as the internet is 90% $h1t.

Couple of things I've seen;

http://hgh-therapy.most-effective-solution.com/grow-taller-with-hgh/ - poor source I know. Talks about the difference between HGH injections, stimulants and releasers. The latter two interest me.
I've also read sprinting increases the release of HGH - if true, is there anything else that does this naturally?
Obviously obeying a healthy diet, very limited sugar and no smoking and good sleep is a must to reach height potential. Proper stretching/yoga is something I am working into my life also, helping correct posture.
And height is very much determined by genetics.

So all in all, I don't trust the internet for information of HGH. Fair enough doctors are trust worthy but I will not get anywhere with them. So what are my options with HGH? Is there anything else I have missed? I believe testosterone doesn't affect height.

Thanks for you're informed knowledge!

If you're about 21, chances are that you've reached your adult height. Some males grow past age 21, but they are a tiny minority. HGH treatment will make you bigger, stronger and improve your recovery from heavy exercise. But at this stage of the game, it's unlikely to make you taller.

I understand it is unlikely but I would like to still have a look at HGH stimulants/releasers and analyse I options regard them.

Height

You are not going to get any taller at your age by taking HGH or anything else.

HGH Stimulants an Releasers

NO over the counter supplement is going to work.

Sprinting

Interval Sprints and resistance training like German Volume and Dr. Doug Crist "Growth Hormone Synergism" trigger some growth hormone release.

However, it is miniscule.

Muscle Mass

Growth hormone will increase muscle mass with the right diet and training program.

Bank Load

Also, growth hormone is NOT cheap.

You may need to get a bank load to purchase it.
