Something I remember seeing a lot of on height increase forums are people who decide to create a type of stack or supplement combination they would try to take to increase their height.
This approach for height is done by people with open and closed growth plates. When the.com was still active the idea of stacking supplements seem to be very common. I somehow recently read somewhere that the old GrowTallForum by Hakker was available at some level on the WayBack Machine. This was what lead me to really see what kinds of supplements people from the past were trying out.
From a first glance it would seem that the research was very intensive, with the focus on being on trying three things.
- Increase the HGH release rate
- Increase the CNP release levels to get the Nitric Oxide to be increased
- Developing Chondrogenic properties.
Currently I have not looked into the reason why these supplements were cycled but all I will be doing in this post is to list as many of the considered height increase supplements as possible. I would guess that the major reason one cycles the supplements is not to overdose on a supplement and saturate the body too much and loss its effectiveness in making a real change.
Common supplements that I have seen being used in different combinations and permutations are.
- Glucosamine Sulfate
- Chondroitin Sulfate
- Methylprotodiosciin and icariin (Dimethyl)
- Niacin (Vitamin B3)
- CJC 1295
- Folinic acid
- Folic acid
- Methyl 1-D
- Multi vitamins + extra calcium
- Vitamin D3
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Huperzine A
- And so many more ideas and supplement names….
Conclusion: All of the supplements I have looked at in my research up to this point have almost all been talked about and researched already by the people who actually did try out the supplement cycles in GrowTallForum.com. I recently used the WayBack Machine to see why so many people have been interested in getting into contact with Hakker/James and wanting to ask him more questions. After seeing just how big the forum was, which is rather immense, I had sent a email inquring whether James would be willing to reactivate the forum so some of the people like us height increase researchers can go back to scour through the old posts and threads so that we can do our own analysis and interpretation. Since there has been no reply back to me I guess James/Hakker has finally and permanently decided to move on and never get back into this area of research again. I understand his thoughts and reasoning.
The supplements so far are too many for me to analyze at this time. At some point in the next few years after the initial structure and design of this website is finished with some of the most common issues, ideas, and questions fully discussed and analyzed, I will try to take the time and go through each of the supplements individually and look at the possible feasibility of the supplements. Some of them I have only glanced at but a lot of them I have never seen before.
What is clear from the 5th podcast episode with Hakker is that if you do have open growth plates, some of the supplements will work. He had said that the M.E.N.S. routine did have results for people who were young enough to still have growth plates. So if you have open growth plates, there is a lot of potential and a high chance for success in using the supplements.
