Throughout my long search for any possible oral supplement that can be taken to increase height, the most commonly used formula is always related to a type of protein, whether it is a hormone, or steroid. Proteins are made of amino acids. This seems to suggest that if a person can just ingest the right amount and type of amino acids, that should help increase their growth rate and height.
In the research, the four type of basic amino acids that are suggested the most are
1. Arginine, usually L-Arginine
2. Lysine, usually L-Lysine
3. Orthonine, (L-Orthinine)

How to increase growth hormones by 701% after only 90 minutes… naturally
Important: Do NOT take arginine/lysine on a daily basis. Why? because by taking daily, your body will be tolerant to the hormone production. Takearginine/lysine two to three times a week – that’s enough.

275% increase in insulin
701% increase in growth hormone
300% increase in IGF-1 (10 X more potent than HGH)
Instructions: Take both L-lysine (1500mg) + L-Arginine(1500mg) all at once on an EMPTY stomach and go to sleep immediately.
(NEW) Should I take L-arginine or Arginine pyroglutamate?
However, Arginine Pyroglutamate is not readily available on the market. As a result, we think it’s okay to take either L-arginine or Arginine Pyroglutamate. Either way, your body will produce a good amount of HGH when taken together L-lysine.
Where can I buy L-lysine or arginine?
Why is it so important to take arginine & lysine on an empty stomach?
Where can I purchase L-arginine & L-lysine?

What Skype wrote seems to suggest that if you take a certain amount of L-Arginine with L-Lysine on an empty stomach and then go to sleep afterwards the ingested amino acids can increase insulin, GH, and IGF-1 by several times over. He states that increased IGF-1 is 10 times more effective than increased GH.
If you typed the term “amino acid height increase” or “arginine height increase” into google, the results are very large. From Livestrong.Com HERE…
There is no established standard amino acid dose for growth. Arginine doses of 2 g to 3 g taken three times a day is a common dose used, MayoClinic.com says. Doses for ornithine also vary. However, 13 g of ornithine taken daily caused growth hormone levels to increase, VitaGuide.org notes. Lysine doses vary depending on age. Children between 2 and 12 need about 23 mg per day per kg of body weight, the University of Maryland Medical Center notes. Adults need about 12 mg per day per kg of body weight.
Amino acid supplements will cause side effects such as stomach upset, nausea and diarrhea. Arginine lowers blood pressure and increases the effects of blood pressure medication, MayoClinic.com says. Arginine also affects your electrolyte levels. Lysine levels are inversely affected by arginine levels because they share pathways in the body, the University of Maryland Medical Center explains.
Aside from supplements, amino acids are contained in dietary sources such as eggs, fish and dairy products, VitaGuide.org notes. Red meat also contains amino acids. Cheeses such as Parmesan also contain amino acids such as lysine. Nuts, soybeans and spirulina also have amino acids. Eating a well-balanced meal and living a healthy lifestyle helps ensure you get all the necessary amino acids you need to facilitate height growth without the need for supplements.
Me: Basically the amino acids act very similarly to proteins.If you ingest proteins, you are essentially ingesting amino acids.
From looking at other results that appear on google, it appears that the GrowthMax product and the GrowthFlexV Pro supplement was based on the science of amino acids intake will result in greater release of HGH, which I have stated in previous product reviews to be ineffective in increasing height of people with closed growth plates.
From a webpage off of hubpages HERE…
The best and most effective HGH enhancer is the amino acid Arginine, which is available in its pure form as L-Arginine. L-Arginine stimulates the pituitary gland to secrete growth hormone and thereby increase your height. L-Arginine works well when combined with L-Ornithine, which is an other amino acid. L-Arginine also works well with L-Lysine and L-Glutamine. Arginine/L-Argininesupplements are available in Pills and the popular brands…
Tyler from HeightQuest also wrote a post about the use of amino acids to increase height HERE. I strongly recommend reading his post which focused on two main points.
1. Instead of increasing the amount of Amino acid or GH secretion, increase the sensitivity of the insulin receptors. It does matter how much amino acids or GH is pushed in tot he system if they can’t be absorbed so the body can be over saturated. He states that insulin increases amino acid uptake.
2. You don’t alter the positive feedback mechanisms but the negative ones. That makes sense since based not the law of homeostasis, the human body will keep on reacting and changing to build tolerance for enhanced levels of foreign intake. From control systems theory, the system will move from the original point to the set point reducing the difference of the two points over time, which is what you don’t want to do.
Conclusion: If you are still growing with open growth plates, increasing the intake of amino acids may help increase height by a small amount. However, it would be so much simpler to eat more lean meat and beans for the protein. If you have fused bones, amino acids will not help.
