At the age of 24, our bones stop to develop and it becomes terribly hard to grow taller. Many height increase exercises have been introduced together with varying supplements.
Though there are less scientific studies that support this notion, many people are still giving these methods a try in hope of a taller body.
But for those who wanted to get taller in a snap, they opt for artificial ways such as the HGH injection and leg lengthening surgery.
Here’s how to become taller with this method:
HGH is a natural hormone that is responsible for human and animal growth.
It is also called somatropin which is naturally produced by the pituitary glands. Aside from growth, HGH is also responsible for cell growth and development. But as human beings age, the pituitary gland stops producing HGH.
This is also the reason why elder people grow wrinkles and suffer from hair loss, muscle degeneration, and many degenerative diseases.
HGH injection is legally authorized in the United States but not to help people increase their height.
This treatment is given to children who do not seem to grow properly because their pituitary glands are not functioning. It is also given to patients of Turner’s syndrome and other growth deficiency disorders as well as AIDS patients.
For adult people, HGH injection is used to cure osteoporosis. However, since HGH is responsible for bone growth, short people who want to increase their height resort to this kind of procedure. The bad news is there are so many negative effects and risks associated with this kind of growth treatment including liver damage and depletion of potassium in the body.
Leg Lengthening Surgery
Another artificial way of increasing the height is the leg lengthening surgery.
Here’s how it increases your height: The procedure involves cutting bones in the leg and repositioning them in a process called ilizarov. After some time, the tissues and the bones in the affected area will eventually heal and develop. As a result, the bone will increase in length for a few inches. The procedure is said to be very painful and just like the HGH injection, there are associated risks as well.
In undergoing any of these methods, it is important that one knows its pros and consequences.
