What Supplements, Vitamins, And Pills Should You Take To Increase Your Height And Grow Taller?

Magic Pill[Note: This article post will also be a webpage/section of the website so it will be continuously edited and added upon as the site evolves. Maybe new supplements and minerals will be found]

Me and my team at Natural Height Growth will not be held liable for any illness, injury, and even possible death that can result from you taking the recommended substances.]

Frequent Question To Me: What Supplements, Vitamins, And Pills Should I Take To Increase My Height And Grow Taller? Or something similar to that nature of a question.

My Answer: I think it is time to try to answer this extremely difficult question as well as I can now. I’ m going to try to fulfill this herculean task once and for all. For the longest time I have been trying to avoid writing this post because I have only been researching only on the techniques an ideas on how to invasively increase your height after you have reached adulthood and your growth plates have ossified and disappeared.

Supplements, Vitamins, Minerals, Formulas, Potions, Mixtures, Pills, Capsules, Steroids, Drugs, Compounds, Liquids, Drinks, Herbs, Plants, Animal Parts, Organic, Nutritional, Non-Toxic, FDA Approved, All Natural, Growth Hormones, these are all terms you have probably typed into google, bing, yahoo, or any other internet search engine because you wished to find a quick, easy, simple solution to your desire to be taller. You want something you can take orally through your mouth and you want the results fast.

Well it’s not going to happen, at least easily. Read the old post “There Is No Magic Bullet

However there may be the readers who are still young, maybe in their teens from 16-18 who still has a few years left of growth. If they go to check with the endocrinologist they will be told that they still have a little bit of growth plates left.

Three critical sources used are “How to grow taller if your growth plates are still open” (1), “Lateral Synovial Joint Loading Supplement Guide” (2), and “How much can supplements help with LSJL?” (3), all from HeightQuest.com.

[Note 2: I know there are a lot more supplements, vitamins, and minerals that are listed in other places but I will not start to add them until I have done my own research on the compounds]

So this guide is specifically created in 2 sections, one for the people who are still growing, and another section which is for people who are completely done with the natural traditional growth process.

Section 1: For the people who are STILL growing


  • Alfalfa – Dosage: Go with instead 300 mg Ipriflavone (source), (2), Other sources: source, , source 
  • Astragalus – Dosage: Unknown at this time (source) – Other sources: source, source, source, source
  • Calcium Phosphate – Dosage: Unknown at this time (source) – Other sources: source
  • Chondroitin Sulphate – Dosage: Unknown at this time – Other sources: (1), (2) 
  • Chrysin – Dosage: Unknown at this time – Other sources: source
  • Creatine – Dosage:Unknown at this time – Other sources:(2)
  • Folic Acid – Dosage: Unknown at this time – Other sources: (2) –
  • Glucosamine Sulphate – Dosage:1000 mg -2000 mg daily – Other sources: (2), sourcesource  
  • Hyaluronic Acid – Dosage: Unknown at this time – Other sources: (1), (2), source  
  • L-Dopa – Dosage: Unknown at this time (source)  – Other sources: source, source
  • Leptin – Dosage: Unknown at this time – Other sources: (2) 
  • Lithium – Dosage: Unknown at this time – Other sources: (2) – (Prescription Needed)
  • Melatonin – Dosage:3 mg before bed. Take every odd day, take melatonin every odd day before sleep, Melatonin helps decrease excess estrogen and promotes good sleep (source) – Other source: (2), sourcesource
  • Niacin (Non-Flush, aka Vitamin B3) – Dosage: Taking niacin for prolonged periods causes the liver to get used to it and requires you to increase the dosage, but increasing dosage above 500 mg will damage your liver a lot!
  • So to get around this, we have two options:
  • 1) Take 250mg – 500mg every odd day upon waking up. Then eat breakfast 3 hours later. Crucial.
  • 2) Take 250mg upon waking up as above. And then Take another 250mg 3 hours after supper but before bed. Every odd day.*
  • When do I take it? In order for the Niacin to properly work, it is recommended to take on an empty stomach, 3+ hours after eating or in the morning upon waking up. After taking the niacin, you cannot eat for another 3 hours so it is best to take it at night before bed or morning right after waking up (source) –  Other sources: (2), sourcesourcesource 
  • Quercetin – Dosage: Unknown at this time – Other sources: (2) [Update: Don’t take Quercetin w/ Lithium since their effects inhibit each other.
  • Reservatrol – Dosage: Unknown at this time – source, source
  • Royal Jelly – Dosage:1500 mg, 1 per day (source), (2), sourcesourcesourcesource 
  • Vitamin D3 – Dosage:1000 IU per 25 pounds of body weight (source) – Other sources: sourcesource
  • Vitamin K2 – Dosage: 1 capsule (2000mcg) daily (source) – Other sources: source


  • Milk – source (found at your local food market)
  • Sophorae Beans – (2), source 1 (found at your local food market)
  • Velvet Beans (aka Mucuna Pruriens) – contains 40mg/g of L-DOPA (source), sourcesource (found at your local food market)

Foods To Avoid…

Section 2: For the people who are FINISHED growing, with Closed Growth Plates…

If you really wanted to try supplements, vitamins, and pills even though your growth plate cartilage are completely gone, you can still start trying the listing below and see what happens.

[Update #2 5/27/2013: I recently wrote a post that has given my opinion that there is probably not going to be a single type of compound a person can ingest which will allow them to grow taller after growth plate closure. It is “No Chemical, Supplement, Pill, Or Vitamin Ingested Orally Can Increase Height Or Make Someone Grow Taller After Growth Plate Closure”. This post was where I decided to STOP RECOMMENDING the supplements below this message for adult height increase.]

Note 5: I recently found on the LSJL Forums a thread that was started that claims that my website, Natural Height Growth is a “semi-scam”. The thread is entitled HEIGHT QUEST AND NATURAL HEIGHT GROWTH=SEMI SCAMMERS“. I can assure the person named “panos” who wrote the thread that this website is not a “semi-scam”. Refer to an very old post which I wrote many months ago entitled “Am I A Scam?” which I decided to update from reading your thread, which I will put at the top of this website for all future cynics and non-believers. For anyone else who wants to criticize me, this website, and the endeavor, read that post before you speak.

[Note 4: Height growth is NOT guaranteed, but theoretically possible….]

[Update #1: Due to new evidence in research, I have decided NOT to recommend quercetin as a height increase supplement because I don’t believe it will be effective from my personal research]

      I am not even sure about Quercetin since I haven’t done any research on it. That just shows me the mistake of putting something down on this website before ever done any real research. I’ll make a big note about this error.

    Why should we avoid tomatoes and broad beans? It says that those foods contain amino acid like L-dopa and the other one (in tomatoes: that will help our growth; I forgot the name)

      Most likely you have closed growth plates. Check with an endocrinologist to be sure if you are curious.

    Quercetin should be removed from the “Open Growth Plates” list, since both you and Tyler have stated that one with open plates should not take Quercetin.

  8. wookie

    Under “Foods” above, you list “broad beans” and “tomatoes” with the advice “Avoid it” and then under this category you have “Foods to avoid”. Should you not put “broad beans” and tomatoes under “Foods to avoid” from the start?

  9. shiva

    I am 25yrs of age do u have any medicine for me to increase my height? I am thinking to take medicine like Astragalus , glucosamine sulfate and hyaluronic acid. will it help me ?

    Hello, i think that Reservatrol should dont applied, beacuse Reservatol incerase Nitric oxide and what is know NO have bad bad bad effect on bone growth.

    See studies about that. example: http://www.fasebj.org/content/22/7/2185.full ”Our data demonstrate that nanomolar resveratrol induces ERα-Cav-1-c-SRC interaction, resulting in NO production through a Gα-protein-coupled mechanism. This study provides important new insights into mechanisms for the beneficial effects of resveratrol. Resveratrol stimulates nitric oxide production by increasing estrogen receptor α-Src-caveolin-1 interaction and phosphorylation in human umbilical vein endothelial cells.”

    When you mean “people that are still growing,” do you mean people that are still in their adolescent years, for example ages 11-23?
