The Chemical That Would Make Adults Grow Taller Has Been Found – Game Changing Post!

The chemical that would make adults taller has been found – game changing post!

Grow TallerThis finding I had more than 3 months is what I had been alluding to when I told a few people that there was something big coming. The news about Teplyashin’s team was big, but this one seems to have a much more immediately, more practical effect. This post is what I was alluding to months ago. However, there are some key issues which we need to get cleared before we tell you guys what it is –


  1. It is not a pill or chemical you can take orally. It requires that you inject it into a certain area of the body.
  2. It is the main critical component, but one would need at least 2 other compounds combined with it, all injected using syringe and needle sequentially spaced out throughout a day to work.
  3. You can’t buy this compound easily, and I haven’t been able to find any places which sell it to regular non-lab people. – I am sure that here is some lab or factory in India or China which makes a synthetic version of this chemical but even the researchers working day after day with this chemical might not understand how effective it could be.
  4. A minority of adults will notice results (Just like always.) Most people will not notice results, except maybe just 1 cm of increase. However, that 1 cm is still enough to make a validation of the scientific theory/proof of concept.
  5. The results takes about 2-3 months total to really show.
  6. Expect on average about 2-3 cms of permanent height increase, but some people will get around 5-6 cm, depending on their skeletal structure.
  7. It works for a certain percentage of the population. I have not been able to find a sufficient reason why the chemical seems to increase only a small percentage of the human population.
  8. The amount of increase among adults has been reported to be as high as even 3-3.5 inches. (search on google for older posts I wrote where I tried to document every instance where some women mentioned it)
  9. It affects the body in a way which even I did not even consider or think of before. The body’s anatomy sure does interesting things. This claim is real, and it makes medical and anatomical sense.
  10. The chemicals (all 3) would need to be injected while at the same time another body contouring technique is being applied to the body.
  11. The increase in height would be permanent, at least in terms of a 20-30 year frame time, before people naturally start to shrink again at old age.

About two weeks ago I had been hinting at some type of discovery which I felt at the time was the biggest discovery that was made for our endeavor. I even wrote to Tyler saying that I had found something that was extremely close to our holy grail. Some people got curious and started to ask in the subsequent posts just what was this game changing post about. I alluded to it in the post about Calcium L-Threonate, and the posts about Russian Plastic Surgeon and Stem Cell Researcher Alexander Teplyashin’s research. When I wrote the two posts about the fact that his research team had succeeded in getting the stem cell technique to work successfully on lab sheep/ram leg bones, maybe some readers thought that the post was the big news. That was not it, even though it was just as earth shaking in its implications.

I wanted to post it now, because it was worth sharing to you guys. Like I always have said, I will share everything and let you guys in on all the secrets that I have found in the biomedical databases on the internet. I am a businessman but this thing, I figured that it was just not worth it to charge you guys.

I put this information public for the others. Some of you guys are young teenagers in the Philippines, India, Pakistan, who don’t have the type of money to pay for such information. Most probably didn’t come from a rich Singapore family who has millions to pay for limb lengthening surgery like Nick, who I interviews on the 11th pod cast episode. You want a miracle drug, which we can never give. This is the most effective chemical that I have ever found, even more effective than glucosamine sulphate, which had sort of gone viral in some ways (That post has already been viewed over 100,000 times)

So what is it?


So how can this chemical be validated to work on increasing height in people past complete epiphyseal cartilage ossification?

This was a compound which I and Tyler had both sort of conjectured about before but did not go deep into checking it out. The start of this saga started when I had made quite a few posts indicating that a small subset of women who went through pregnancy noticed that they started to notice other people becoming shorter. Tyler immediately guessed it was Relaxin and the citation by him on one PubMed study on how the pelvic bone structural alignment in cows which went through the 1st pregnancy did dramatically change seemed to only give slight proof. I agreed with him. However, more reports started to come in, maybe once every month with some mother or female writing in and giving the phenomena even more credibility.

I wrote another two full, detailed posts trying to explain the exact mechanisms on how the female body would end up longer even with relaxin, and the only explanation I could come up with was that the human female pelvic bone structural alignment also changed after the first or 2nd pregnancy just like heifers (female cows before ever going through their first pregnancy). If you just google the terms “pregnancy” and “height increase” into Google you would find those posts.

I decided to go back and really look at the compound after at least a dozen pregnant females came forth on online forums and claim that besides just the increase in feet and finger sizes during pregnancy, they noticed height increases, sometimes as much as even 3.5 inches in increases, over a span of 2-3 pregnancies.

That was when I stumbled upon a single Patent done, which hid from me and Tyler even after years of searching.

Refer to the patent below….

Method for remodeling bone and related sutures – Inventor: Dennis Stewart – Company: Bas Medical Inc.

Below are the other patent #s which are also associated with the idea/invention

The reason to have the patent filed multiple times is this. The practice of Patents is to file multiple patents for different countries for the same inventions. All the Patent numbers will essentially take you to the same patent.

In the abstract of the patent, the Inventors specifically says at the last sentence, and I quote…

“The invention further encompasses methods of modifying the height of a human subject”

It seems that this Dennis Stewart who has been researching the effects of Relaxin for over a decade (I checked his PubMed published papers) had filed the patent to protect the idea that Relaxin when administered to the bones can get them to grow. The bones have relaxin receptors.

So the million dollar questions is, “Why would this chemical work on human adults with fully fused growth plates?”

If people are hoping this compound can magically reopen their growth plates, it won’t do that. However, it has a very beneficial effect on all the tissue types we care about, epiphyseal cartilage, bone specific cells, and the ligaments that hold the bones together. In a certain context, the answer is yes it would work for even adults. How it works is much more interesting, which I will try to go into below.

My Personal Theory On Why Relaxin Can Make Adults Taller

In the last month, I have bought multiple books on joints and have been very lucky to find very cheap old textbooks in the local Salvation Army and GoodWill that is by my house. I picked up the Textbook “Joint Structure & Function – A Comprehensive Analysis – 4th Ed.” by Levangie and Norkin, which turns out to be one of those textbooks that people who go into Physical Therapy needs to read up on. I also started to read up on very old (early 20th century) medical textbooks and ideas which are now no longer practiced. In addition, I became very interested in the traditions of the practice known as Bone Setting, I remember seeing this documentary about this old Chinese Medical Practitioner in Singapore and/or Hong Kong who were able to fix and repair minor bone fractures and joint problems by moving bones and joints around. It reminds one of Rolfing and the Chiropractor practices today. After learning that the practice of bone setting is almost completely extinct, but used to be practiced by almost every single old civilization in the world, I asked the question whether the same bone setters who could fix bone breaks knew also ways to make joints more flexible. That is how I got into something known as Manipulation Therapy. I would purchase the old texts “Treatment by Manipulation” (by AG Tibrell FIsher) and further texts to increase my level of understanding on how joints work, and how they can be manipulated in a safe way.

By what I have read of so far, it seems that the modern form of Physical Therapy is derived from this early 20th century practice called Manipulation Therapy. When you start looking at what the authors say, they don’t base their massage/tissue manipulation techniques on chiropractor theory, which is subluxation theory. I haven’t gotten that far from reading the books but what I have been reading does seem to give the idea of using relaxing to increase the overall height of a person seem somewhat validated in theory. I do feel that my increased knowledge on the ways the joints are designed give me a more better understanding on how it is possible. Let me explain.

The Science Behind Relaxin

Relaxin ReceptorsThis is based on what is written in the patent by Stewart. Like so many other chemical compounds that is naturally produced in the body, Relaxin is an organic compound, a protein, specially a peptide hormone. It’s overall 3-Dimensional structure is similar to Insulin and Insulin like Growth Factor (IGF), which we know can be used in children who are still developing to grow bone size. It is actually in the same family as IGF. Historically, it has been known only as a hormone associated with pregnancy. It is supposed to make sure the uterus remain stable but makes the breasts in the pregnant female grow larger. The chemical seems to target mainly the brain, reproductive organs, and the heart. In the last decade, other researchers have found that it has an even greater effect than previously believed.

There seems to be 3 different types of Relaxin compounds, or more specifically there are three different relaxin expressing genes. H1, H2, and H3 Relaxin, which are all very specific to humans.

(Side Note: One researcher found that the biomolecular chemical pathway of relaxin (cAMP pathway) can be modulated by two G-protein-coupled receptors, LGR7 and LGR8. In the patent, the list of relaxin receptors are the following: LGR7, LGR8, GPCR135 and GPCR142.The pathway used by Relaxin is different from the Isulin ligands. In certain mammal species, during the actual act of labor in pregnancy, the relaxin is released to make the vaginal tissue relax aka expand for passage of the baby’s head. However, that does not seem to be relaxin’s role in cows and humans.)

I quote from the patent…

Another advantage of the present invention is that the target bone may be remodeled, repaired, removed or grown depending on the type and need of the bone

It seems that relaxin can be used to repair bone fractures, but we have already found multiple chemical compounds that can already do that. It’s pro-osteogenic effects however may mean it can have other uses than what we want it for.

In the next line, he writes “Similarly, a bone may be grown in size or height by administering relaxin

In the pictures of the patent, Stewart was able to identify the relaxing receptor in the epiphyseal plates (specifically the hypertrophic layer) through staining. Finding it not just in cartilage tissue, the chemical was found also in the bone cell types: osteoclasts, osteoblasts, and osteocytes.

He notes that the change in height when you administer the Relaxin can be as small as 0.2 cm to as much as even 30 cm, which is nearly a full feet in height increase, which I am not convinced is possible.

Here is where the inventor really shows something interesting. Supposedly the invention would work for people who range from 1-30 years old, although it is suggested to work on people in the 8-18 range. That makes sense since having growth plates would always work better. I am not going to put words into this person’s mouth but maybe his willingness to put the age range up to 30 means that he has speculated that the chemical would be good for people even at fully adulthood to make their bones bigger. Of course, I don’t think it is the long bones like the femur and the tibia he is referring to, but the non-long bone types in the skeletal structure. That is what I believe the increase in height will occur in.

The other amazing thing is that Dennis understood that beyond cartilage and bones, relaxing has beneficial effects on sutures, which is just another term used to describe the area where bones meet. Remember that besides the long bones in the human body, there is also the irregular bones (pelvic and vertebrate) which can grow.

This is where I think the holy grail lies. I believe that with the right relaxin formulation (H1, H2, and H3) administered to certain areas close to the sutures of the human body, ie the pelvic joints and the sutures on the sides of the intervertebral discs, you would be able to increase a person’s height by making the irregular bones in the skeletal structure grow larger volumetrically by adding more layers on the bones.

If we combine the intravenous injections of relaxin formulation with manipulation techniques aka physical therapy to straighten out the lumbar-pelvic area, what would be seen would be a permanent height increase in a large percentage of the patients.

I had tried to guess how the female body during pregnancy actually changes in standing skeletal posture to even allow for an overall height increase. I don’t want to go too deep and re-explain something I said before so please refer to the post “How Pregnant Women With Ossified Epiphyseal Cartilage Increase In Height” for more explanation. Remember, it is a huge leap in theory and basically just a personal, amateur level guess on what is happening underneath the skin.

The other big question to try to answer is…

“So why do most women during pregnancy not experience any height increase, but only a small minority of women do?”

That question, I can’t answer with a reasonable, scientific answer. 

Here is one guess: I once proposed before that it is possible that a small percentage of people, but most especially women never have fully fused growth plates. Those growth plates are only seen in X-Rays. You can’t look at an adult person and tell if they have any cartilage left at the ends of their long bones. We all have to assume that because they are an adult in their late 20s that they have fully finished growing taller, but no one except superman with his X-ray vision would be able to truly validate that idea by looking to see no more cartilage/growth plates. If that is true however, then it would then invalidate the entire premise of this post, which I am willing to accept. Logically, then all these claims made by women that they grew taller during pregnancy in their 20s and even 30s is just because their growth plates were never completely ossified. Of course, that would mean that we need to ask a completely different question, which is why it is that a minority of people seem to have unfused growth plates so late into their life.

If we assume that the first guess is not true, then the next guess on why only a select few women see any increase is that some women have irregular vertebrate alignment aka minor scoliosis which was never fixed until pregnancy, where the ligaments were relaxed enough to get the curved vertebrate to even out and become symmetrical.

I have noted that there does seem to be a weak positive correlation between above average females who notice that they grew taller during pregnancy. It might be that certain women who have already been suceptible to tall stature have bone relaxin receptors particularly sensitive to the relaxin, which is so similar in function and form as the insulin and the IGF types.

What a person should expect to really look for in terms of a signal is to see if their feet is getting bigger. The phenomena of pregnant women’s feet becoming bigger is well documented, which shoe sizes often increasing as much as by 2 shoe sizes. If the person taking the compound notices that their feet has started to increase in size, then it is a rather good physiological signal that the relaxin is working maybe also on the torso vertebrate bones and pelvic bones as well. So if we decide to start to inject our pelvic region and lower back with relaxin, we should be checking the size of our feet weekly for any changes.

How can a normal person obtain this chemical compound?

So far, I have not looked into how a person can get their hands on it yet, at least at a reasonable price. What I do know is that almost anything you want, some company in the world is willing to make it. (I know of one company based in Iran where the people there are chemists, CNC machinists, and 3D Modeling artists who can formulate any type of chemical or 3D Print any object that you want, as long as you can pay the upfront manufacturing costs to get the raw materials) For example, I was able to get modafinil from India and after just a quick search. On Alibaba.com, I found that there is at least one company based in China which is selling Human Relaxin. For just 1 box which probably contains less than 10 mL, we are looking at $300-$500.

In comparison, during pregnancy the amount of relaxin that is produced in various parts of the body and then released through the system might be much more in magnitude. However, we could also make the case that when it comes to giving kids shots of growth hormone, which lasts even years, the amount of HGH that is injected is not that much, maybe just 10-20 mL if even that much. Remember that we did look at the amount of endogenous HGH released by the pituitary gland in growing kids even at the most optimal time, during deep REM sleep is still not that great in quantity.

That could mean that if the stuff we did buy from the Alibaba sellers of what is supposedly the synthesized relaxin is around the right amount, we would still be paying around $500 for each shot of the ligament loosening/bone increasing/growth plate increasing compound.

In Conclusion

I had always thought that the only ways to increase bones in length or by volume was by turning the bone tissue into cartilage, or getting whatever is left of the cartilage aka the articular cartilage surface to expand in thickness.

It seems that there is a third approach which I had not even considered, and that is by loosening the ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissue in the body. I understand that the ligaments are not structurally strong against gravity like bone or cartilage so it can’t provide the push to hold the body higher in elevation relative to the surface of the earth aka make the body become taller, but for a larger percentage of the population, a loosening of the ligaments around the lower back and pelvic region means that the bones will be readjusted in a way which will make any hidden skeletal abnormalities and angular bone alignment become aligned. The result is that those people will notice height increase. Remember, the patent’s title is Method for remodeling bone and related sutures, and when we actually look at how orthopedic surgeons define sutures, they refer the term “suture” to mean the spaces where bones meet. This compound has dramatic effects in the suture, which often means the space between the bones can be expanded.

I propose that along with this chemical (Relaxin Formulation), they should combine it with the following…

All of the chemicals have pro-chondrogenic capabilities. The idea is to get all of these compounds together and get the growth factors to be injected intravenously in series at the same time a physical therapist is using manipulation therapy on the lower torso region.

However, relaxin will be the real key to the entire process. It is relaxin which will make the pelvic region malleable enough for the modern day “bone setter” the physical therapists and maybe even the chiropractors to create a bone structural alignment that will result in permanent height gain. Since Relaxin has receptors in the cartilage as well as in all of the major bone cell types, it has a additive effect.

How Much Confidence Do I Have In This Chemical and It’s Effectiveness? Or, to put it another way, would it definitely work for permanent height gain that is noticeable, maybe 2 inches?

First, I am not a person who has studied the chemical for over a decade like the Inventor Dennis Stewart. I am also not him who decided to spent maybe even $2000-$4000 to pay to have this “invention” patented, which he did working for Bas Medical Inc. For a normal person/non-corporation to file a patent which would cost them thousands of dollars means that they are either extremely confident in what they have found/discovered/created or they have maybe too much money on their hands. As for myself, I am an amateur researcher who reads a lot of texts on joint mechanics and orthopaedics. Orthopaedics is sort of like a calling for me, which has allowed me to also study and read up on the cutting edge of research in cancer research, stem cells, and gene therapy, the biotech hot topics of the last few decades. If I could do things over again, I would have maybe chosen Pre-Med for my undergraduate studies, got into Med School, and tried to do really well in the Step 1 (USMLE Part 1) to get into the ultra-competitive orthopedic surgery route, which has been found to be the best paying medical sub-speciality where surgeons often earn around $700,000 per year in earnings.

I am not a doctor by training, but trained as a type of biochemical engineer who worked in labs looking for AIDS vaccines and Plastic Surgery techniques. Based on my personal research in the last 2 years doing this type of stuff, I have extreme confidence that using the relaxin formulation with other pro-chondrogenic growth factors combined with a bone & joint manipulation specialist (you can choose chiropractor, Asian bone setter, physical therapist, rolfing, or maybe even deep swedish masseuse) there would be a noticeable increase in height for the person which will be both permanent and noticeable. I am not going to say that everyone is going to get results, more like a minority, but I would guess that 10-20% of everyone who combines the chemical with the body manipulation will see results after 2-3 months.


Side Note: I was not not the first amateur height increase researcher to notice this phenomena. The person who back in the 2007-2010 time who created the www.HeightEffects.com or HeightFX grow taller formula (Website is now gone) also noticed the phenomena and made a post to some Mom forum asking for more information on how they grew taller but never got a response from them. I remember looking at the WayBack Machine at the content on the Height FX website and being amazed at just how clear and knowledgeable the person was on what would work. The guy who sold the bogus formulation understood all the easy, traditional paths on height increase and tried to figure out how pregnant women were getting taller but didn’t seem to push further into the research, so he never got as far as us.

I am reminded of this lecture given by Guy Kawasaki, one of the evangelists for the late Steve Jobs. He once said something which I still remember on how really great scientists find really breakthroughs in science.

When they see something in their experiments and data, which is not consistent with the other results or lays outside the trend line, instead of saying that the data point is due to normal error variance and removing it to make all of the other data points look smooth and linear, they say instead “hmmmm, that is interesting” and proceed to figure out why the outlier point in the data set does not agree with the others. That is the mark of a great scientific researcher. That is what happened in this case. The phenomena of pregnant women who end up taller was such a unique data set point, that I was forced to look into it and see why it was such an outlier. The outlier cases, as Malcom Gladwell states, is where the really interesting things lie.

Sure, there will always be some researchers who won’t be doing groundbreaking work, who are needed to repeat the experiments already done to validate the original researcher’s results, but it seems like these days, there are just too many Ph. Ds that are coming out of graduate school who is not doing any real research.

Is it because of all of the easy questions and obvious corollary conclusions have all been discovered, and all of the low hand fruit have been plucked?

Is it just too hard for a single person to figure out something revolutionary in nature anymore? Maybe there will never be another phenomena like how Einstein wrote 4 brilliant physics papers back in 1904, all of which would have been good enough to win a Physics Nobel Prize, which changed the very way we view the world.

It could be, since the sciences have become much more vast in scope and diverse. For example, we can look at the field of mathematics. Back in the late 19th century, the PolyMath Henri Poincare was probably the last mathematician who was skilled enough to work in all of the mathematica field of his time. Even the great John Von Neumann 30 years later when asked just how much of the current mathematical literature he was able to work on, he only said 26%.

It may be too hard for even the modern Fields Metalists to dig deep enough to find real gems, but for genetics, and biotechnology, I think even the amateur research like us can make some startling conclusions. So I say, be Alice and go down the rabbit hole, and see where it takes you.

You look at the results which don’t make any sense, because that is almost always where the real discoveries lie. Last year (or was it two years ago), when the French and European particle physicists were studying the resultant projectile pathways of all of the quarks, leptons, muons, and neutrinos that came about from smashing atoms together at the LHC (Large Hardon Collider), trying to find evidence for and validate the the work done more than 50 years ago by Peter Higgs, Stephen Hawking’s mused that he secretly hoped that they would NOT find the higgs boson. The thinking is that if they did not find it, it would mean that the current Standard Model of Physics on how the sub-atomic particle interact with each other was incomplete, which meant that nature and the universe had something else up its sleeve. The last time naturalist scientists tried to tie the loose ends of physics together, back in the 19th century, trying to integrate E&M and Newtonian Classical Mechanics together, they opened the new realm of reality and existence known as quantum mechanics and radiation. This time, there was no new startling discovery, which would open a new branch of physics research. Alas, the existence of the higgs boson was quite conclusive up to a high percentage so it seems like for at least the standard model, all of the particles have been accounted for.

I view this post as the result of noticing that not all the data and information was fully conclusive. It was only found by looking for what is inconsistent and different from everything else.

Reverse Low Bone Density aka Osteopenia Leads To Height Increase In Older Women

Reverse Low Bone Density aka Osteopenia Leads To Height Increase In Older Women

Reverse Low Bone DensityI’ve received messages from multiple women and found stories of older women who noticed that their height increased even when they happened to be middle aged. The best example of this happening was the case of where a women in her 40s started to take versions of Vitamin K2 aka Menaquinone and noticed that she gained about 3-4 cm increase in height. Refer to the older post “Increase Height And Grow Taller Using Vitamin K2 aka Menaquinone (Important!)

Vitamin K2Most people have probably not heard of Vitamin K2, but they have heard of Vitamin D, which is often combined with Calcium as a type of commonly sold supplement in any drug store. The Cal+VitD combination is something that is supposed to help increase the bone density and is often advertised on complete vitamin pills for women, like Centrum for Women. We however felt that the supplement is more likely to have negative side effects than increased bone density. I remember watching this video done by a promotor of the Anti-Aging movement who stated that the primary cause for the reduced function in the organ systems is from build up of calcium in various areas, from the arteries (causing strokes and heart attack) to the cartilage (which calcify).

Even if it turns out to be true that the Vitamin D which comes with the Calcium pills might have some positive effect on bone density, there is no correlation between its intake and increased bone longitudinal growth or bone lengthening. Our thoughts right now is that swallowing more calcium may not be the smartest move one can take, especially for people trying in increase their height.

The fact is that the conventional wisdom among professional medical experts seems to be that Vitamin D (The normal type) actually has an adverse effect on growth in children, at least in high dosages taken orally. However, it seems that at least 1 study (High-dose vitamin D supplements are not associated with linear growth in a large Finnish cohort.) it was proven wrong. High Vitamin D intake has no correlation, positively or negatively to growth, to growth, not even in children and infants.

So let’s move away from the idea that is believed by the general public, but move towards the other Vitamin, K2. We suspect that Vitamin K2 may be a much better option.

Some background information on Vitamin K2

There are actually a total of 3 different types of Vitamin Ks. You have Vitamin K1, K2, and K3. They are known by the names of phylloquinone , menaquinones , and menadione respectively.  Within the subcategory of the K2, it is further divided into 4 types of K2. They are known as MK4 (the most well known), MK7, MK8, and MK9.

  • MK4 aka Menatetrenone
  • MK7 aka Menaquinone-7
  • MK8 aka Menaquinone-8
  • MK9 aka Menaquinone-9

The compounds are very similar to each other. From Basic Organic Chemistry, all of the following compounds have a type of structure known as the “quinone ring”. The number associated represents how long is the carbon side chain (based from its Wikipedia article)

Based on a few Pubmed studies we’ve found, it seems that MK7 seems to have a positive effect on the bone density in aged females and also decreases the loss of height. We quote the following passage “….significantly decreased the loss in vertebral height of the lower thoracic region at the mid-site of the vertebrae“. The lumbar spine and femoral head showed an increase in bone mineral content and bone mineral density.

FosamaxThere is another compound known as Alendronate which is sold under the commercial title Fosamax, has some effect on the osteoclasts from eating away the bone structure. They act as a type of specific inhibitor of osteoclastmediated bone resorption. This idea of combining Vitamin K2 and with Fosamax is something which we will bring up in future posts.

However, We do find out that Vitamin K1 (NOT Vitamin K2) does NOT seems to help prevent the decrease in bone mineral density for women over a long time range, at least at the 5 mg a day dosage (Study:Vitamin K supplementation in postmenopausal women with osteopenia (ECKO trial): a randomized controlled trial.“)

Some cultural references to the use of Vitamin K2

For the longest time, the ancient indian medical practice of ayurveda has proposed that taking Vitamin K2 or the types of foods which contain Vitamin K2 is supposed to decalcify the pineal gland. We know the pineal gland as the small gland that is supposed to regulate sleep.

Besides just India, it was found that in Japan, the fermented soybean based food called Natto contains a lot of K2. That seems to help with bone density levels and prevent hip and femoral neck fractures in older Japanese females.

So what do all the studies which show that MK4 and MK7 have bone density enhancing properties prove?

It gives just more evidence in validating this unique story of the middle aged woman who noticed her height increasing over 1 inch after taking MK7 to stop osteopenia.

We suspect that the same bone physiological process has happened to the women who start the reddit thread/story below.

Height Increase In Older Women

She would increase in height by 1 inch between the age of 21 and 24.

(We are fully ware however that her assessment that she did not menstruate (aka release excess estrogen) would go completely against our hypothesis though. That would suggest that the mechanism on how she grew is due to a completely difference process than what we are proposing. Her inability to have a regular period cycle and menstruate for 12 whole years (while already at the height of 6′ 0″ at 21) suggest that her cartilage did not get the last rush of estrogen release to fully ossify the last bit of epiphyseal cartilage left in her system. teenager symptoms of extreme thinness and ectomorphic body type suggest that she had anorexia causing the last wave of estrogen to be inhibited.)

The main thing is that she went from thin and low bone density aka osteopenia to increased bone density, getting her periods regularly, and normal/balanced hormone release. She never stated what helped her get the balance of her hormones back in order. We suspect that she probably took Vitamin K2.

If we are wrong about the physiological cause for her ability to increase in height in her mid-20s, we would still suggest however that Vitamin K2, which has the ability to reverse low bone density aka osteopenia, would still lead a small percentage of women who have no more growth plates to increase in height. Somehow having a low BMD seems to cause the cortical bone layer to be weak enough to be deformed enough to increase bone volume.

We found almost no studies in Pubmed showing that Vitamin K2 has any type of effect like decalcification of hyaline cartilage, but we hypothesize that it does.

  • It has already been proven to decalcify the heart vessels aka arteries, decreasing the rate of heart attack and stroke.
  • It has been speculated to decalcify the pineal gland by Aryuvedic medicine.
  • So why isn’t it possible that K2 in some form, either MK4 or MK7, might have have the ability to decalcify calcium buildup in the cartilage tissues?

DosageThis would suggest that it might renew the ECM structure of hyaline cartilage which gives them elasticity. If our hypothesis can be validated, maybe high intake of Vitamin K2 can result in micro-growth plates and cartilage embedded into the Bone ECM.

From one source, we found the dosage to be around 45 mg/day, which is what is recommended for women suffering from osteoporosis.

Two Major Breakthroughs In Research Made (Big Breakthrough!)

Something that I had discovered while I was doing research on the retinoic acid in the post Endogenous Retinoic Acid Negatively Regulates Growth Plate Chondrogenesis And Longitudinal Growthwere two compounds which really got me excited in the research.

It seems that while retinoic acid inhibits longitudinal growth of the long bones, it’s antagonist known as the Retinoic Acid Receptor antagonist (aka RAC antagonist) seems to be able to actually reverse the inhibitory effects of RA. it seems to be able to make the mineralization, calcification, and chondrocyte maturation process go in reverse and turn cartilage extracellular matrix which have started to mineralize and accumulate with calcium deposits known as hydroxyapatite back to the collagenous and glycoaminoglycan filled tissue it was originally.

What makes the RAC antagonist so promising was the fact that the RA was fed to the lab rat of a single dosage orally and the effects on the growth plates and endochondral ossification became obvious after just a few days. If the RA can be taken orally, then it might be possible for the RAR antagonist to be taken orally as well.

If the RAR antagonist can indeed be taken orally, then what we have would be one of the first and only true scientifically validated compounds discovered which can actually accelerate growth in growing children. This would have huge implications for children around the world who developed stunted growth from bad nutrition. If the RAR antagonist can be separated and isolated, using chemistry devices like HPLCs, and then concentrated, we might be able to mass produce this compound element.

What is interesting is that the RAR antagonist can reverse the calcification and mineralization process so even if a person had a sliver of open growth plates left, they can start growing maybe even in a few weeks of a few millimeters.

Since the human body produces the retinoic acid and the retinoic acid receptor antagonist endogenously, it would be safe to intake orally/ ingest. It is safe for human oral consumption.

The 2nd compound which I discovered which may have evern bigger implications as I had researched in the previous post linked above is Parathyroid Hormone, PTH.

In that post, I had quoted a phrase from the study entitled “Retinoic acid induces rapid mineralization and expression of mineralization-related genes in chondrocytes.

“Mineralization was completely abolished by treatment with parathyroid hormone; this profound effect…”

It seems that the PTH has the ability to break down the calcium deposits down. In terms of general biological and medical literature, the fact that PTH can cause calcium accumulation to be resorbed back into the blood is already a very well known point.

From a webpage from Colorado State University

Parathyroid hormone accomplishes its job by stimulating at least three processes:

  • Mobilization of calcium from bone: Although the mechanisms remain obscure, a well-documented effect of parathyroid hormone is to stimulate osteoclasts to reabsorb bone mineral, liberating calcium into blood.
  • Enhancing absorption of calcium from the small intestine: Facilitating calcium absorption from the small intestine would clearly serve to elevate blood levels of calcium. Parathyroid hormone stimulates this process, but indirectly by stimulating production of the active form of vitamin D in the kidney. Vitamin D induces synthesis of a calcium-binding protein in intestinal epithelial cells that facilitates efficient absorption of calcium into blood.

Excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone is seen in two forms:

  • Primary hyperparathyroidism is the result of parathyroid gland disease, most commonly due to a parathyroid tumor (adenoma) which secretes the hormone without proper regulation. Common manifestations of this disorder are chronic elevations of blood calcium concentration (hypercalcemia), kidney stones and decalcification of bone.
  • Secondary hyperparathyroidism is the situation where disease outside of the parathyroid gland leads to excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone. A common cause of this disorder is kidney disease – if the kidneys are unable to reabsorb calcium, blood calcium levels will fall, stimulating continual secretion of parathyroid hormone to maintain normal calcium levels in blood. Secondary hyperparathyroidism can also result from inadequate nutrition – for example, diets that are deficient in calcium or vitamin D, or which contain excessive phosphorus (e.g. all meat diets for carnivores). A prominent effect of secondary hyperparathyroidism is decalcification of bone, leading to pathologic fractures or “rubber bones”.

There is no doubt that chronic secretion or continuous infusion of parathyroid hormone leads to decalcification of bone and loss of bone mass. However, in certain situations, treatment with parathyroid hormone can actually stimulate an increase in bone mass and bone strength.

Analysis & Interpretation:

Another great resource I have used to learn more about the Parathyroid Hormone is the website Parathyroid.com. The thing is that one can stimulate calcium mineral deposits to break apart using the PTH. If you can extract enough calcium, the bones turn into “rubber” (or become very easy to fracture as well) which means that we can then probably stretch the bones.

I had already concluded in two previous, pivotal posts that the compound PTHrP (Parathyroid Hormone related Peptide) is most likely the key to induce the first step for adults with no cartilage to possibly dissolve the hard bone matrix for cartilage replacement using other growth factors with more chondrogenic effects. This post seems to put more anecdotal, but still weak evidence in showing that either PTH or PTHrP can be used for our ultimate goal of achieving bone lengthening after the cartilages completely disappear.

It seems that we have quite  a few ways to demineralize bone and give it just enough elastic properties to strength the bones.

I like to conclude this pivotal post with the link for how one can actually turn bone into rubber-like using vinegar for an elementary school science project.

There Is No Magic Bullet

When I sometimes lie on my bed late at night after writing as much as possible all the topics that pop up in my head, sometimes I try to imagine what my audience, the readers, YOU are thinking. I always go back to this fundamental question “What do they REALLY want?” …and I mean REALLY WANT.

If they were being completely honest with me, where all the bullshit is finally dropped and just told me the ugly cold truth to my face, what would they actually say? I was taking a shower about 30 minutes ago and I figured it out.

You want the “Magic Bullet”.

When I finished showering, I was amazed at just how stupid and ignorant I was that I did not see the issue earlier. It always was bugging me when I used to search for a method or path to my own secret desires to gain inches to my height. I never fully did find the solution I was looking. I realized that I had done the same thing. I wanted to believe in a “magic bullet”.

I don’t even know whether the concept of a magic bullet even exists in contemporary or everyday communication or psychology but the general concept of a “magic bullet” is that the magic bullet is basically a secret or “magical” solution to a very big problem in our lives that is causing us a lot of distress, anxiety, and mental pain. Years ago I had spent over a year learning the skills and techniques on how to attract and be more successful with the opposite sex. I remember that the term “magic bullet” was thrown around a lot and now I realize that the term can be used very appropriately for this situation too. During the time the axiom thrown around was that “there is no magic bullet” and I agreed.

However when it came down to this secret little wish inside of me, I guess I could not accept that idea. Now I understand myself far better now, but I think (or at least I hope) that I also understand the readers and audience better too.

I would assume that 90% of you who read this blog/website came here hoping to find some solution to your most vexing of problems, your desire to grow taller. Sure, there are those of you who came here by accident and thought my writing was funny and decided to spend around 3 minutes of their life reading this odd website in the middle of nowhere on the internet. However, I would bet that most of you got here from going to Google (or some other search engine) from typing something like “How to grow taller” or “How do I grow taller” into that empty input box.

Well, that is my theory of how you initially got here, how you originally found this website.

And you probably choose to click on the “Height Increase Guide” tab or the “Techniques” tab first to see what techniques there are to increase height. At this time, the “Height Increase Guide” has not even been edited or have anything on it yet. I of course will get to it hopefully within some time in the next 7 days.

Anyway, depending on your emotional state, you are actively searching. You want to find something. The fact that you even decided to go to the google main page and type something in means that you are “searching”.

So the obvious question to ask is “What are you searching for?” Again the answer is that you are searching for a magic bullet. This magial solution to your problem will be easy, simple, quick, and painless. That is what we all want.

This is the scenario that I am guessing you would like to happen. You come to this website, and you read on one of my articles that I am talking about this new FDA approved oral drug that is supposed to be able to stimulate the pituitary gland to release excess HGH and also be able to reopen back up your growth plates and turn all those close epiphyseal lines into cartilage again. Somehow through the magic of science and technology, the scientists and geneticists have gotten together in some hidden underground laboratory and come up with this new “magic pill”. They have given the licensing rights to a multinational pharmaceutical company who will market the pill and now it is in every Walgreens, CVS, and Right Aid in the country with a price tag of $15.99 for a pack of 4 pills. The instructions say that all you have to do is take 1 pill once every Monday morning and after 4 weeks, you will gain 3 inches.

So you go to your local pharmacy, shell out $16 for this drug that doe not EVEN need a damn prescription!! That’s how it is! You go home, chug it down with some water, and go back to your life of doing whatever you are doing, with no regard to a healthy lifestyle like proper exercise, heathy eating, or good sleeping habits. 3 days later you grow impatient and decide to measure yourself. You do and you find that you just grew half an inch! Damn, this shit works!! You jump up in joy, go to your rooftop and dance with giddiness. So you do the waiting, and you measure again the first week is over and you are up another half an inch. You are amazed that the pill actually works. You take the next one at the specified time, and you gain a little less than 1 inch of growth the 2nd week. After 4 weeks, you are indeed 3 inches taller, give or take a few milimeters. You are over joyed at your new body, with your new long legs, and even your arms and torso grew a little. when you go to the bathroom and strip down to look at your new body, you are amazed that the drug had extended your limbs and torso perfectly in proportion, and hell, you even look more muscular now… No stretch marks, no growing pains, no side effects.

You are super happy to go out to the mall and buy completely new pants and clothing becasue hey, you are now completely transformed. You then meet your friends and they are absolutely astounded that you have changed so much since they last saw you. All you do is smile, knowing your little secret. You now notice that cute guy you have been interested in for the last 6 months is giving you the “look” and with your new found confidence you walk up to him and start to flirt…can I end this story with a “and they lived happily ever after?”

Simple, clean, pain free, work free, no hassles. This is the dream, that magic bullet we are searching for. Of course, we all know that there is nothing like that. Hell, even with our weight issues, like trying to loss 20 lbs to fit into that damn dress for say your prom is a massive internal struggle as the internal desires and forces fight it over.  I mean if we can’t even control and master something a thousand times easier like our weight issues, how the hell are we supposed to master our height issues?

Again, there is no “magic bullet” solution. Life and things will never be that easy. For everything that is worth it in life, it requires a lot of damn work to obtain. Sometimes we do get lucky and something great just falls into our lap. Yes, it does happen, like if you were sitting in a coffee shop and a cute, charming, normal guy walks up to you, compliments you, does some flirting, and proceeds to get your number.

However,when it comes to something like our bodies, we are the only one’s that are responsible for it. If we want to shape it or do something to make it better, we have to do the hard work.

I am right now sitting in a coffee shop in the middle of the Gangnam-gu area in Seoul, South Korea. Every time I go into the subway system, I see these pictures that are ads by plastic surgery clinics offering their services. And they all promise that you do not have to “settle” or just “live with” the face or body you were born with.

Yeah, that’s right… not even your genetics and inborn DNA have any power over your life anymore since if you don’t like the way your nose or eyes look, you can just plop down $4000 clams and get that changed to whatever celebrity’s nose you would like. If you happened to have a eating problem and you are now over 250 lbs with flesh slipping out of your pants and shirt, now you can just go to that clinic by the Paris Baguette on the corner and in less than 4 hours, all the fat your have been eating and accumulating for the last 15 years are removed in an instant through liposuction. If you happened to be getting older and balding, they now have these plugs and implants you can get that basically act just like real hair. Well isn’t that just simple and easy. You didn’t have to do any work. If you happend to be getting wrinkles, just go for  quick touch up by getting poison (Botox) injected into your face until you don’t even look like a real human anymore.

TRUST ME, there are some people who I walk past everyday these days whose face are completely expressionless because they have injected so much poison in their face that they can’t even move it anymore. Super scary.

It indeed feels like we are living in a society where we are always wanting everything at this instant, and can not go without instant gratification. We have lost our ability to just wait and invest for the long term. The concept of hard work is gone since we now have all the technology to get everything we want. Have we become so mentally weak in terms of willpower and endurance ability? Can we still put up with any sort of slight pain or discomfort?

Well for this issue, our desire to increase our height, their is no magic bullet. Their is no painless easy, simple solution. Even the most obvious strategy which is to get surgery and do limb lengthening is filled with complications immense pain, and time and money lost. Maybe, just maybe for this one specific area in our life, we can not just throw money and technology at the problem and hope it goes away. We actually may find for the first itme in our life with a problem which we can’t seem to be to solve no matter what we do.

My whole point is this: There is no easy simple solution to this issue. It is time to sit down, roll up our sleeves, and get to work to find a solution. It may not appear for even say another 50 years but if you truly want this, if you truly believe in this endeavor, you are willing to put in the effort to stick it out to the end.

I Am A Horrible Writer

I admit it, I am a horrible writer. If you have ever read more than a few of the posts on this site, you would be met with many misspellings and grammatical errors. I wanted to apologize right now for my own inability to write well. However I have always felt that the content and message of the writing is far more important than the small stuff. If you can stick through to the end, I usually try to bring it all, all the content, back around and make a final conclusion on what the overall message of the post was. That can save you maybe the minutes of mental struggle you might go through to make sense of my writings sometimes.

I know I am a horrible writer. Sometimes my stream of thinking is not smooth and you might be perplexed in trying to understand what I am saying.

I used to have a RSS feed to the blog/website so that everytime a new post was published, you would get an alert to the update and you can read it. However, I realize that my writing style is very different from most other bloggers and writers out in the internet space. I publish my articles and posts as fast as possible. Often I only have only the title of the post up and have nothing put inside. The posts are then continuously added upon, edited, and finally finished late on with a product which I feel is good enough to read and get some form of value from. That is usually when I feel that the post is 90% finished. I don’t strive for 100 % perfection this type of stuff. This project of mine is something I plan to write and work on for the next 10 years, if I manage to find the time There might even be articles and posts I edit say 5 years later because I reread my stuff years later and hated my old writing style and felt the internal need to edit and polish the old material to be more readable.

There are still many posts that I have in the backend and old posts that are already published which I never even finished the ending for. My train of thought was interrupted by another idea that I had thought up or I realized that I had to implement at that time.

I am just so passionate about this subject and have so much knowledge and content that I wanted to share with you as the reader. I am hoping to give you as much value as possible. I know that right now I write about 3-4 posts a day and that will of course one day change to a less frequency. Right now, I am enjoying myself in expressing my own opinions and ideas on the subject of height increase, and anything related to it.

How Much Taller Do You Want To Be?

How much taller do you want to be? Do you desire to just improve your height slightly to improve your confidence inside yourself or do you desire such a dramatic change in body form that you go through a full transformation on every level? If you do go through with the full transformation, how would other people react towards you after they see you again?

I would suggest that most people should only ask for 4 inches maximum in height increase. I personally can probably create a program or system within 4 years of full research which can increase a person’s height by 1-2 inches, by decompressing the vertebrate and decreasing the curvature of the spine.

However if you are around 5 feet tall (or shorter) and male, maybe then it would be appropriate to desire something more like 8 inches or even an entire feet in growth. There is objective scientific evidence that shows that a male’s chances for dating and mating success is hindered most likely by his height, beyond any other physical attribute.

However, I would say that desiring for a full 12 inches in height increase would be completely life transforming. There is currently no program out there that comes even close to giving anyone that type of results. I personally have never heard of any story or claim that allowed for up to an entire feet of added height, not even the scams out there.
