One of the things I did learn from one of the E-books was that apparently it might be possible to increase one’s height by taking Chrysin. However, the chrysin taken must be in large doses. Of course we all learn that anything , especially supplements, in large doses and amounts can become poisonous and harm you instead of help you.
I have never heard of chrysin before so I wanted to do some research on it. From the Wikipedia article HERE, I will paste the part which I think is relevant to what we are doing here.
Chrysin is a naturally occurring flavone chemically extracted from the blue passion flower (Passiflora caerulea). Honeycomb also contains small amounts. It is also reported in Oroxylum indicum or Indian trumpetflower.
Advertised as an aromatase inhibitor supplement by bodybuilders and athletes. However, studies done in vivo show that orally administered chrysin does not have clinical aromatase inhibitor activity.This has led to some practitioners administering the drug transdermally(through the skin).
Since chrysin is available as an herbal supplement, some users, for instance body builders, are taking chrysin with the hope of raising testosterone levels or stimulating testosterone production. One study listed below did not find chrysin supplementation to lead to any significant increase in testosterone production.
Chrysin was once believed to be an effective aromatase inhibitor, decreasing the levels of estrogen in the body. However, there is growing consensus that chrysin has no effect on estrogen levels in either animals or humans. Early evidence was reported in the early 1980s through in vitro studies (in the laboratory, as opposed to in the body). Unfortunately, follow-up studies determined that cell membranes effectively block chrysin from entering the cells and having any effect at all on estrogen levels in biological organisms.In vivo (in the body) studies involving biological organisms lend support to the observation that chrysin has no effect on estrogen levels, but may have other detrimental effects to the body, particularly to thyroid function. For instance, a 30 day study administered chrysin to four groups of mice both orally and via injection to examine chrysin’s effect on serum estrogen levels. The results showed that chrysin had no effect on estrogen levels. Further, the mice treated with chrysin became considerably fatter, possibly due to chrysin’s ability to disrupt thyroid function. Another study on rats administered 50 mg of chrysin per kg body weight, considerably more than found in dietary supplements. Chrysin was found to have no ability to inhibit aromatase, possibly due to poor absorption or bioavailability.
Me: I guess the general consensus with scientists right now is that Chrysin was once thought to have helped increase height by prolonging the growth plates from ossificaiton, but that has been proven wrong in the recent decades by newer experiments. If we type in the words “chrysin height” into google, these are the types of results we find. It appears that the first link gets the question unanswered while the 2nd link reports Chrysin won’t work.

When testosterone converts to estrogen that is what closes your plates, and make syou stop growing in the late teen years.
Chrysin blocks that transformation, leaving your plates open as long as your on it, making you grow continuously.
My friend grew to 6 foot 2 on it, when he was 5’6 starting it the bone age said he had 1 inch left but chrysin gave him 8 inches.
ANYWAY… testosterone not being converted also helps us as weight lifters because more testosterone in our system more strength…
SO HAS ANYONE TAKEN CHRYSIN??? IS IT SAFE??
Is it safe?
