The Effects of HGH on Growing Teenagers

by Matt Crenshaw · 119 comments

Human Growth Hormone, also known as “HGH”, is a hormone produced naturally by our bodies. A gland in the human brain creates this hormone throughout our maturing process in order to help develop the growth of bones, muscles and cartilage.

Today’s medical science allows us to create the hormone synthetically. This hormone is often produced in a controlled lab and is administrated to the legally prescribed, it’s administered through a syringe and can be injected anywhere on the body.

The legally prescribed includes children who have growing disorders. However, the hormone can be distributed illegally and used in several manipulative ways. Typically, athletes will use the hormone to increase performance and perform past their past limits.

The biological effects of HGH on an aging teenager can be very dangerous, in fact deadly.

Side effects such as “Acromegaly” can develop due to an overdose in HGH. Acromegaly causes a person’s hands and or face to grow abnormally large. Other biological effects such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer can develop. Long term stunted growth can also occur which is the exact opposite of the desired purpose.

Since a teenager’s HGH levels are already in the process of expanding the body, a synthetic dose can be threatening towards the stunted growth factor. In today’s competitive society a teenager may turn to using HGH in order to get ahead of his peers. This pressure must be combated with campaigns promoting the dangers of HGH in order to spread proper warning. Instead, we see more and more athletes failing drug tests. The use of HGH has been banned by the International Olympic Committee, and all other major sports leagues. These bans aren’t strong enough statements in order to abolish the misuse of HGH within our adolescent society.

Since HGH is so difficult to detect during a drug test considering that it’s naturally produced by the body, there are no concrete statistics on its widespread use. There is one statistic provided by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, stating that “approximately 8 to 10 percent of high school students have experimented with or are using anabolic steroids.”

HGH can also have a negative impact on a teenager’s emotional state. Accelerated aggression is the most prevalent side effect known also as “roid rage”. The unnecessary aggression caused by HGH can cause problems at home and school.

I have personally witnessed a close friend who had a growing disorder undergo this aggression; however the HGH was very effective in bringing him up to par with muscle size and bone strength. Vanity effects can also be present during the course of the use of HGH. As if teenagers don’t already have enough acne, HGH can induce much more.

Although HGH poses many positive and negative effects on teenagers, it is perfectly safe to use if taken in moderation through HGH releasers such as Secratatropin HGH. Moderate use is attainable considering that HGH is not an addictive substance. You might also be interested in reading more about HGH side effects. If you have or know of a teenage son or daughter that is using HGH illegally, be sure to enlighten them with these listed effects.

Hello, I am 18 years old and I am planning on buying HGH supplements to help make me stronger in my core muscle group. I have read plenty of medical studies/journals and I understand the risks involved with living in the US and taking growth hormone pills.

My question is:
How much muscle can I expect to gain during a first time cycle of HGH with no other bodybuilding supplements?

About me: I am 5′ 10″ and weight about 160lbs (somewhat athletic build). I work out 3-4 days per week, alternating recovery days every week. In regards to my nutrition: I drink whey protein shakes every day to supplement my daily intake of natural protein, which is a must for optimal muscle development, as any true bodybuilder will tell you. Can you give me any more info?

Last question… do these “organic” HGH pills mentioned on your site still work well for increasing muscle size after hitting a plateau in muscle mass from working out?

Thank you in advance for your help and effort in answering my question. I bookmarked this page and will check back tomorrow night hoping to read your [much appreciated] answers :)


Abdulmohsin August 1, 2011 at 2:38 pm

hello there, I just turned 17 and I want to get taller and have more muscle mass. Can I take the natural supplements of HGH? Or are the still harmful like those synthetic? I am thinking if take the natural supplements as they are from nature and don’t have any chemicals or anything that is considered organic. i read a couple of articles but i want to be sure the natural supplements are okay for me to take once a day, considering my age.

Thank you for this wonderful article,


Matt Crenshaw December 7, 2011 at 7:34 pm

@Abdulmohsin, I appreciate your kind words. To answer your question, I would not recommend taking HGH (even natural supplements like Sytropin) at your age.

I won’t lecture you, but here’s my reasoning:

At 17 years old, your natural growth hormone levels should be relatively near their maximum. In addition, you mentioned that you just turned 17 meaning you still have at least a few years to continue growing naturally. Any unnatural GH supplementation without proper post cycle therapy could permanently (negatively) affect your natural production levels.

In regards to muscle mass, how long have you been lifting for?

Adults and experienced bodybuilders like HGH because it has powers that most anabolic steroids do not have. These include increased bone density and growth, in addition to muscle growth. A cycle of HGH with proper PCT (post-cycle therapy) can run well in the THOUSANDS of dollars and therefore is not worth it for a young man like yourself since you already have naturally high levels.

I would like to hear more about your situation (weight, height, etc.) Please email me at and I’ll give you more personalized information to help you build muscle mass at your age.

Matt C.

P.S.: For other teenagers reading this with a similar question, HEIGHT is not something that can be easily increased without the help of a doctor. Please remember that your body doesn’t stop growing until you reach your early 20′s. It’s best not to mess with anything until you stop growing. As with everything in bodybuilding, don’t try to synthetically fix something until you’ve hit your natural plateau. You’ll end up doing more harm than good in the long run.


Dfig. December 11, 2011 at 6:14 pm

I am in the same situation
I am 6’1″ 165lbs, athletic build, I am currently lifting 5 days a week with proper breaks and separation between muscle groups, I play high school soccer as well for cardio
I have a very high metabolism, eat 6 meals a day while taking whey protein and vitamins twice a day but I am still struggling to gain or even maintain my weight
I’ve read and been a part of many online articles and discussions on lifting and supplementation but it still seems everything I try has not helped
If anyone could get back to me with tips or advice it would be much appreciated


Dfig. December 11, 2011 at 6:16 pm

I am not looking to grow in height by taking hgh although I know it would most likely happen
I just want to increase in size and weight

If anyone can help me please email me at


Dope January 3, 2014 at 2:50 am

I weigh 135 lbs I’m about 5″8 I pretty much have normal everything good amount of armpit hair, pubic hair, didn’t have a lot of leg hair for a while but I can tell I’m growing more, plus a average sized penis about 5″1/2 I’m under 18 btw the only thing I don’t have is a deep voice I actually have a high voice and that’s pretty much the last piece of the puzzle right now and I was thinking that if I took some test booster maybe it would speed up my puberty a little and give me a deep voice what do u guys think do u think it will work your input would help me out so much right now I’m so confused….


Matt Crenshaw January 3, 2014 at 12:47 pm

Dope, testosterone boosters are typically not necessary for anyone under 18 and going through puberty. Judging from your description, your testosterone is already as high as it needs to be. Just wait. Your body will do what it needs to do.


jayjay January 12, 2012 at 1:47 am


i am a 19 year old male.i just ordered a natural hgh supplement to try and gain 5ft 7 which i think you will agree is relatively short for a male.

i want to know whether to take it or not and if so for how long and in what amounts as i do not want to end up having the side effects such as acromegaly or gigantism.

any advice whatsoever regarding this matter would be greatly appreciated.


jayjay January 12, 2012 at 11:09 pm

i also saw you in an earlier reply to another question mention post cycle therapy.may you please go into more detail about this and give examples of it that may aid in reducing the occurance of side effects.i would also like to know,if safe at all,the duration in which to take the natural hgh supplement without the levels becoming so excessive so as to lead to acromegaly and gigantism and other side effects.
thanks again for the help


Matt Crenshaw February 7, 2012 at 9:10 am

@jayjay Post cycle therapy for HGH depends on your dosage and other drugs in your stack. Note: PCT usually only applies to AAS cycles and many bodybuilders actually include HGH as part of post-cycle therapy on top of nolvadex, clomid, etc. to maintain testosterone levels and lower estrogen levels. Another hormone supplement called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is used to prevent testicular shrinkage following AAS cycles. Testicular shrinkage is a very common side effect of anabolic steroids as well as any time you artificially inflate testosterone levels for an extended period of time. Fortunately, HGH by itself doesn’t directly alter your testosterone level so you don’t need to worry about maintaining it upon cessation of therapy.

Natural hgh supplements are relatively safe and side effect free and the chances of acromegaly and gigantism are much lower than with the use of a prescription hgh like somatropin. Of course, even with natural hgh supplements you should still acknowledge the potential for side effects and discontinue use immediately if you believe something is wrong. Using human growth hormone under the close supervision of a doctor is your safest bet. At the very least, you should get regular blood tests to make sure your levels are within the desirable and safe range.



Enrique January 13, 2012 at 10:51 pm

Hello I am 18 years old and I am only 5 foot 4.9inches!!! That is very short for a male. In my school everyone is around 6 and the girls are around 5.7. I am shorter than most my friends and get teased alot. I would like to buy this before I stop growing. What would you recommend for me? I would like to be at least 5’8” I do exercise etc. My brother is 5.7 but unlike him during puberty I did not grew as much in a year as he did. Please help before I order just anything


Enrique Vega February 2, 2012 at 2:28 am

hello I am 19 years old and I am 5’5″. I haven’t grown anything since I was 16. I cannot stand living in this humiliation. My girlfriend JUST grew and inch taller than me and I am REALLY considering in buying a natural HGH supplements. I have researched mostly about everything in the past months about how to increase my height. all I want is 2 more inches. I don’t really ask for much but I do not want to get stuck in this same height. Please help me on what kind of supplements should I buy and will work .


Matt Crenshaw February 7, 2012 at 8:51 am

How old is your girlfriend? Sytropin is your best bet as far as non-prescription HGH supplements go. It’s the most powerful stuff out there.

But you should know that increasing your height is definitely not the easiest thing in the world to do. If you have the money (or your parents’ money), talk with your doctor about prescription growth hormone injections. They seem to be the most promising way to medically increase your height as of 2012.

Also, this may sound stupid but a friend of mine just told me about this and I wish I had thought of the idea: Look into buying “elevator shoes” – just google them. They look like normal shoes but the inside of the shoe is raised slightly so it gives you an extra couple inches without looking like you’re walking on stilts.

Just something to think about :D



jasonnn February 6, 2012 at 7:00 pm

I’m 17 years old and 5’0″ and weigh 158lbs I want to start taking HGH to get taller. People always tell me I’m really short and I hate it. Do you think it’s right for me?
P.S. I am a male


Matt Crenshaw February 7, 2012 at 8:36 am

@Jasonnn At 17 years old you are still growing and I don’t know if I would recommend HGH (this of course is my non-medical opinion). You still have at least another year of growth to reevaluate your height condition. Height is primarily linked to genetics. How tall are your parents?

HGH Therapy can be highly effective (and expensive) but only your doctor will be able to give you the most accurate information about a specific therapy plan catered to your needs.



jasonnn February 7, 2012 at 9:37 am

My mom is 5’2″ and my dad is 5’5″


coler February 8, 2012 at 9:54 pm

I am a 24 yr old male. I am 5’10″ which is not that short, but none the less, I am curious about hgh helping me gain a couple of inches. Regardless of side effects. I most likely wouldn’t take it, due to cost and risk of side effects, but I am in the nutrition field and am Subject to encounter a similar question and would like to hear your opinion.


Justin February 13, 2012 at 6:43 pm

I’m 17 almost 18 and i am 5′ 6″ the doctor says im done growing and i am wondering if taking a natural hgh supplement would be hurtful in any way. since i might grow a inch or two in my spine would it help speed that up? also i have been trying since i was 15 to get a six pack i eat healthy food and workout 5 or 6 days a week with rest and ab work outs every other day and a day of rest would it help me achieve a full six pack and better muscle tone?
i would be very grateful if you would answer my questions


Matt Crenshaw February 14, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Taking a natural HGH supplement won’t do any harm but at 17 years old, the efficacy of such a supplement would be questionable as well.

Getting a six pack is 90% about your diet and 10% about your workout. Eat lean foods, watch your fats and sugars, and your abs will eventually show themselves. Low bodyfat is the only trick to a six pack. has a lot of great info on workout plans. You might want to check one of them out to make sure you’re not wasting your time with redundant workouts of certain muscle groups.


toby February 17, 2012 at 6:36 pm

Im a 16 year old male and 5’9, i want to gain a few inches and be around 6 foot. Will hgh make me grow and what dosage should i use?


Joe March 1, 2012 at 10:21 pm


I’m 16 5’9 and haven’t grown in about a year. I want to be 6’1 or 6’2 so i am planing on taking 1.5 IU’s of hgh when i wake up and after my workout. I dont care about the sides i will do anything to be tall. When i take it how long will it take for me to get to 6’1.



Garrett H. March 3, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Im 19yrs old, turning 20 in August, I stand at 6’1″, and weigh 145lbs. I live in a stable home, with a lot of positive energy. I am underweight and I have been lifting to gain muscle weight for a couple of months now with little to no results. I work out 4-6 times a week for at least an hr each time. I want to gain muscle weight and would like to weigh in at around 170-180lbs. Would taking HGH help me reach my goal? If not, what else could I use to help me gain muscle mass?


John May 3, 2012 at 9:29 am

Im having the same issue, im almost 19 yrs old and im 6′, i weigh 125 lbs. I am not working out at the moment because when i did work out, i went on a workout plan and an extremely healthy diet and i took vitamins and a protein supplement, i was persistent with this routine for about 6 months and my weight peaked at 130, which took about 2 months to do, then i never gained any weight again. My doctor says my metabolism is just off the charts and i just need to eat a lot, i already eat a lot, and never gain anything, i would like to weigh at least 150. My theory is that if i take one proper cycle then quit (just to give me a start or boost) and regularly work out, is that possible? My initial question is relatively similar to Garret’s, would HGH significantly help me put on weight and would it be worth the cost to do so? I have a couple more questions that i would like to be answered, its not a necessity but if you have the time i would greatly appreciate if you’d please answer them.

Does natural HGH have any potentially negative reactions to any other types of medication? Marijuana?

About how long would it take to notice a significant weight gain assuming that I would be on the proper diet and regularly working out?

Matt, Thank you very much for taking the time to read my enormous message and to answer my questions, if you have any questions for me that could help you answer any of my questions please email me at

Treijon Johnson June 21, 2012 at 9:51 am

Hi, my name is Trei Johnson. I turn 18 in one month, and I was considering buying hgh supplements online in hopes of getting taller. I’m about 5″3 137 pounds. I’m well built and work out 3 times a week. No serious weight lifting, just wrestling. My dad is 5″11 and my mom is 5″2. I eat healthy, with multivitamins, plenty of milk, and not much fast food. As you can imagine, Most kids about my age arent 5″3, and I’ve always been small for my age. At this point, I’m just wondering whether should wait a little longer for a late growth spurt, or be more proactive before my growing slows or stops. Thanks for your consideration


Logan July 15, 2012 at 5:24 am

I am logan.. I plan to try peak height maximizer. But i not sure is it safe or not. I am 21 years 9 months old with 165cm.. I want to grow taller a bit and have bigger body structure because i am too thin and chest is not enough wider.. If i want to try protein drinks also cant because i am a lactoce intolerance person.. Please reply me.. Thank You..


Matt Crenshaw July 26, 2012 at 10:32 am

While I can tell you that using HGH stimulants is safe, I can’t tell you that Peak Height Maximizer is the best product to use. If you read the ratings it got on Amazon, they are far from stellar. I would recommend something with a better track history for results; you can read reviews of some of the most recommended products on our homepage:


OfAnonymouus July 22, 2012 at 7:15 pm

I just turned 15 and I’m only 151 cm tall, which means I’m not even 5’1″ yet. I haven’t grown since Christmas and I’m scared this means I’m going to stop growing soon. I’m also vegetarian and I’m not sure if that’s a factor or not. Both of my parents are just above average height, with my mum being 166 cm and my dad being 176 cm. I really doubt I’m going to grow 16-19 cm in 3 years (since I’m supposed to be between my parents heights), so I was wondering if it’s safe for me to take HGH to help me grow? My mum’s offered to take me to the doctor to get checked before I start anything.


Matt Crenshaw July 26, 2012 at 10:23 am

At just 15, it is very likely that you will hit your growth spurt and easily grow 15 cm, especially because of your parents’ heights. But I agree with your mother; you should probably have your doctor check your growth plates before you take any medicinal action.


Jarrod July 24, 2012 at 5:04 am

Hi my name is Jarrod im 20 yrs old about 5’6
Im not really worried about my height but I have
very skinny wrist and small hands and skinny legs but feet and everything else is normal. Im very self concience of my hands because everyone seems to believe small hands small penis which is not true. My main goal is to get bigger hands and more mass in my arms and legs would hgh help me achieve that?


Matt Crenshaw July 26, 2012 at 10:13 am

HGH can definitely help with the production of bone mass–especially while you are so young, and can even stimulate the synthesis of soft tissue surrounding the bones, giving you a fuller, thicker look.


Sultan August 3, 2012 at 7:56 pm

hi Matt my name is sultan. I am 17 years old and 5.1 ft. I want to be at least 5.5 ft at lest , is it posible . my mum is 4.7 ft and my dad is 5.2 ft . please matt I need help. will HGH help me to be 5.5 ft from 5.1 gt ??????


Matt Crenshaw August 6, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Hey Sultan, thanks for the question. Although you could be done growing, there is still plenty of time for you to grow taller at just 17 years old. One of the first steps you can take is to visit a doctor and see if your growth plates are still open. If they have closed, you could look into some safe HGH releasers such as Secratatropin HGH, but make sure to talk with your parents about it to see what their advice is.


Sultan August 9, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Thank you Mr Matt. I owe you one. okay absoulotly I will do what you’ve said to me. thank you again. Good bye.


Eddie August 5, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I have a serious issue, i am 16 years old and exactly 5ft, I have been doing very very heavy weightlifting since i was 13/14 i just want to know if there is anything i can do to help me grow? my mum is also small and i am taller than her so i think this may be the tallest i grow but i want to grow more.


Matt Crenshaw August 6, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Hey Eddie, like I told Sultan, you should probably see what your growth plates look like before you invest in any products to stimulate growth. Then speak with your parents to see if HGH releasers are the right option for you.


Brad Pitt (minus the Pitt) August 7, 2012 at 4:09 am

Hi Matt – Love the article! My name’s Brad, and I’m a 29 year-old male. 6 foot – 175 lbs, and fairly lean & thin-boned). I work-out and run 4 times a week and eat lots of fresh berries, raw nuts, lean grilled chicken, and spinach 6 days a week. I’m physically and biologically healthy, I just recently started to incorporate high-intensity, short-rest cycle workouts into my regimine (since I hear these are supposed to help ooze more natural HGH from your pituitory gland).

I look about 5-6 years younger than my age, however I also use a quality SPF 75, men’s moisturizer, and collagen cream daily. My goal is to continue looking/feeling like a 21 year-old for a long time, being as fit as possible, as well as maintain that fountain of youth.

1) What general advice do you have for me?

2) I read that taking L-Glutamine in the morning and L-Argenine at night on an empty stomach will help significantly release the secretion of HGH at the same youthful levels of a teenager. Is this true?

3) Are there any iminent dangers by taking these or any other recommemded HGH enhancers?

Thank you kindly and I hope to hear from you soon.

Liam August 8, 2012 at 2:19 pm

I’m 15 years old and i recently ordered sytropin spray to gain some muscle mass before footbll and wrestling season after hearing about its affects when taken with supliments like muscleripx. i was just wondering if it is safe to take this at my age because i dont want to take it and have health problems from it. can you please help me wih this!


Matt Crenshaw August 10, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Hi Liam, at 15 you should definitely be cautious about each supplement. Because you are still growing, certain products could actually stunt your bone development, even if they increase your muscle mass. Make sure to take supplements that have natural ingredients, or ingredients that you could get from food, such as protein or amino acids and you should be safe, but always talk with your parents before you try anything and they can help you decide what is best.


Reva August 10, 2012 at 10:58 am

Hello , I am almost 20 years old girl … My height is almost 5 ft…. i want to grow 2-3 inches more… i am physically fit and not having any health issues ….. could you plz help me ? … is hgh safe for me?


Matt Crenshaw August 10, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Hey Reva, it depends on what kind of HGH you are asking about. If you are thinking about injections of HGH, those can come with serious risks of overdose. But as far as supplements that increase your body’s ability to produce more human growth hormone, you should be fine.

You can read more about some of the most popular HGH products on our homepage: Hope that helps!

Hi … My name is syed I’m 23 yrs old … My height is 5″5 … I want to increase my height by using somatrophin HGH … Can I go ahead ??? Plz guide me


Matt Crenshaw August 16, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Syed at 23 years old, you’re probably not going to have any luck increasing your height. Unfortunately, height is one thing that’s tough to change. We’re kind of dealt the hand we’re given and an HGH supplement isn’t going to make any difference.


Blinks August 16, 2012 at 5:29 pm

Thanks Matt !! But will I be able to loose body fat and gain muscle with regular excersise ??


Blinks August 17, 2012 at 10:00 am

I was planning to run 5 iu daily with clenbuterol


Matt Crenshaw August 21, 2012 at 6:36 pm

Yes, regular exercise is definitely going to help.

Anthony August 22, 2012 at 12:38 pm

What’s up guys? I’m Anthony. I’m 20 years old. I’m looking to gain more muscle, strength, and weight. I’m 6’2 170 lbs. Currently playing college baseball. I throw 90mph off the mound, and I’m looking to get drafted, considering I’m going into my Junior year. 90 doesn’t seem to be fast enough for the scouts, so I’m starting to take this supplement called A-HD to get stronger, which, according to the reviews, might not be the best thing for a kid my age. It may help strengthen me, but it won’t allow me to gain weight (projected weight to gain 15-20 lbs). I work out 5 times a week. On top of that, I have workouts and practices with my ball club. My daily intake could be better. An average day of consists of 3-4 eggs in the morning, 3 peanut butter sandwiches, protein shake after a workout (vanilla mass gainer), and meats and greens for dinner. I could really use help gaining the right weight. If anybody on here has any suggestions on what supplements would help me gain weight fast it would be most appreciated.


sandeep kumar August 29, 2012 at 2:40 am

sir i am sandeep i am 20 years old and just 5ft thats too short and i ordered genf20 plus but i didn’t started taking it can you help me that it is gud for me to height increase please help!


Matt Crenshaw August 29, 2012 at 3:04 pm

Hi Sandeep,

Essentially, human growth hormone supplements like GenF20 give your body chemical signals to produce and secrete more HGH that is responsible for tissue growth.

If you are wondering more about GenF20′s specific abilities, you can read a review of this product here:

Hope that helps and good luck!

I’m a 30 yr old female 5’5 & 128lbs. I want to lose my tummy fat & build a lot more muscle. I also have memory problems, anxiety, fatigue, & low sex drive. I am interested in HGH because I did some research & from what I have read it will help all of my issues. Should I take HGH? & if so what is a safe type & dose for me?


Matt Crenshaw August 30, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Hey Sandy,

It sounds like you hit the nail on the head with HGH. As I’m sure you’ve already found, HGH helps improve cellular function as well as promote the production of new cells, which is why its benefits are so widespread.

Because you are looking to see a few different improvements, you might want to go with an HGH supplement that is solely directed at increasing your HGH levels, like Secratatropin HGH. Another product, Humovox is more geared toward fat loss and muscle growth, while Lifessence HGH+ will be better at improving cognitive function.

Hope that helps!


Art August 30, 2012 at 2:38 am

Hu, I just turned 17. I play rRugby & football. I’m about 5’9, 160lbs. My parents are 5’10 and 5′ tall. I would really like to get taller, so I’ve been looking into hgh releaser supplements. I’d like to be at least 5’11 or 6′ even, as I am going to be playing rugby & football in university. What would you suggest, as of my situation?


Matt Crenshaw August 31, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Hi Art,

Your situation is not a unique one, and many people your age are wondering the same thing. Because you are still young, it is very likely that your growth plates are still open and you are still going to grow.

You can ask your doctor for an X-ray to see where your growth plates are, and if not, you should definitely talk with your parents before you decide on any HGH products.


Angello September 27, 2012 at 2:48 pm

matt im 16 and 5,4 and weigh 107lb i went to the endocrynologist and he said i hit an early puberty and that my growth plates are closing early because of it, they are almost closed but i find it odd since i have no wisdom teeth no facial hair and im 2 inches shorter than my dad, also my voice isnt that deep. the endocrinologist said that ill probably grow 1 inch more. is there anything i can do or take so that i can grow more than that before my growth plates close??? at least 2 inches


Raza September 5, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Hi Im Raza im 17 and Im 5’7″ I wanted to take hgh to grow taller!! Can you tell me how it can be taken and will it help me grow told cuz Im really looking forward on growing tall taking it


Matt Crenshaw September 7, 2012 at 11:46 am

Hi Raza,

Thanks for your question. Because you are so young, your human growth hormone levels are probably still quite high. You might want to get your growth plates checked to see if they are still open, which would mean you are still growing. After that, then you can look into supplements that increase your HGH levels.


Josh September 7, 2012 at 3:08 pm


I’m almost 20 and 5ft 5, and looking approaching my consultant about getting prescribed HGH, or getting it prescribed privately as its severely damaging to ones confidence. Could you give me an idea of how much a course would cost if I were to take the private route, and how much growth it can actually give you?

I’m aware that medicinally, it is only prescribed for stunted growth, is 5ft 5 at the age of 20 classified as such? My father (5ft 10) is still very much taller than me so genetically there is still potential surely?

Any help would be much appreciated!



goodevening Matt, September 9, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Hi, im Nimbrod 19 yrs old, though I look 15. I used to take medication when i was small due to asthma and allergies affecting me due to a collapse lung from a car crash when i was a baby. hit my growth spurt when I was a sophmore, from 5′ 3 to currently 5’11. weigh 133 lbs in lean muscle. I do excersise and run, and right now im working on my arms chest and back. im Except my wrists are awfully thin, and my shoulder width is 1.5 ft which is narrow for my height. also have a small jaw. all of my bones are thinner than my younger brother who is 16 and looks older than me. our parents are short but uncles tall. i dknt know if my body is aging slow and im actually 16 in my body which probably means ihave more years to grow, no i havent grown a beard,sideburns,or moustache yet plus my wisdom.teeth are barely hcoming out which i find quite odd. would you recommend HGH, or do you think perhaps my body is aging slowly and im barely starting to go through this growing process like a normal 16 yr old would? reply please..


Matt Crenshaw September 10, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Hi Nimbrod,

From the information that you have given me, it seems like you have not yet reached your full physical growth. Although you are most likely not going to have the same physical make-up as your brother. If you are done growing taller, human growth hormone most likely won’t speed up the rate at which your bones lengthen. However, more human growth hormone will always help you produce more lean muscle mass, helping you add more girth, though not necessarily more height.

Hope that helps and good luck!


goodevening Matt, September 11, 2012 at 12:15 am

thanks for your knowledge, tho I’ll take a route to my goal in a more natural approach. I’m going to stretch daily, Squat heavily with proper equipment, use heavy weights for arms. That most definately will gurantee me higher HGH unleashment. For thats basically what its triggered by. plus ill be taking lots and lots of carbs and water. thanks matt or who ever you are.


Yamilet September 11, 2012 at 8:54 pm

I know im still super young but its just to verify something. Im 5’6″ 1/2 15 years old 150lbs, dont do any kind of diaet and play volleyball. Its been almost 1 year and a half that i havent seen any changes on the matter of height and im scared i will get stuck there. I really want to be on the 5’8″ or 5’9″ ish. I want to ask if i have high standards on growing 3 to 4 inches more. Sorry if there are mistakes on my english im puertorican.


Yamilet September 11, 2012 at 8:58 pm

My Dad is at nearly 5’11″ and my mom is 5’2″ 1/2 just putting it if you need it.


Matt Crenshaw September 12, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Hi Yamilet,

Your English is great! As you said yourself, you are still very young and have plenty of time to grow. In fact, the average growing years are between 13-20 years old for males. Just keep a healthy diet and you will most likely see some growth.

Good luck!


Limmy September 14, 2012 at 10:54 am

Hi, I turn 18 this november and I’m a girl and my height is only 153/4cm and I’m really really desperate to grow taller because I’m always being made fun of. I was wondering if HGH would help, I started puberty at 10. I’m looking to grow till 160cm, is that possible? I plan to do lots of stretching exercises as well.


Matt Crenshaw September 14, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Hi Limmy,

At just under 18 you could definitely grow 7 cm before your growth plates close. Because you are still young, you could go to the doctor to get an X-ray and see how much more time you have to continue growing.

Good luck!


Jeremy September 17, 2012 at 11:33 am

32, 6′, 5.3% body fat, 164#, lifted seriously for 4 years. Iv only using whey as a supplement and a good diet. Im a smaller framed guy, which gentically I cant do much about, and Iv hit a plateau in the last few months. My goal is 180#. Is HGH a good choice for me at my age and which product would you recommend? Thanks, Jeremy.


Matt Crenshaw September 17, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Hey Jeremy,

HGH definitely sounds like it could help you power through your plateau. While protein is great for building mass, HGH is a better option for increasing your energy levels and giving your muscles more power during your workouts.

However, HGH usually increases your metabolism which means that you will have to increase your caloric intake unless you want to get rid of some subcutaneous fat. You can read more about some of the most recommended supplements on’s homepage:

Hope that helps and good luck with your workout!


Moe September 18, 2012 at 3:21 pm

I am 19 going on 20 and am wondering if hgh would help me grow in height. I am 5’7″ and 150 lb, want to get taller is there a safe and affordible way to do this.I am joining a wrestling league and want to get taller muscle mass i can work on my self. Please get back to me asap.


jeff September 19, 2012 at 7:22 pm

I am plannin to buy HGH 20.years old i.want to get taller musvular i gym.4 times per week
Do you think i can.growth aleast one inch using HGH


Jeffery September 20, 2012 at 2:59 pm

Hi, My name is Jeff, I’m an 18yr old male, about 5’5″ in height. I’ve been this height for a few years now, and well, its not very fun. Among the majority if my friends my age, and younger, I am the shortest. They’re all no shorter than 5’8. I’ve spent countless hours on the web, looking for height solutions and the two most common things show up. Surgery, or hgh. I know the surgical procedure that involves screws on your plates, but the surgery is very expensive and extremely painful. So I would prefer the hgh. I know some of the effects of irresponsible use of the hgh, but I would like to know which hgh would be best, safest, and most beneficial to me. I’m a pretty attractive guy, but even so, I’m sick of women seeing me as insufficient because of my height. And I’m very tired of being the shortest man amongst my male friends.


Jeffery September 20, 2012 at 3:07 pm

When I was younger, (around 15-16) I was this height, 5’5″, but I haven’t grown since and it worries me. I would rather not get some shoes either to make me taller, it would just be a lie. the previous girlfriends I’ve had were thankfully, my height or shorter, but who knows how much that’ll change once I start school again. I start my first year of college in the spring, and I’ll be studying to be a doctor, but id prefer to be a moderately fair sized student and doctor.


Jane Dancumina September 22, 2012 at 5:35 am

Matt I’m glad to read that you are able to give out advice on Hgh as we know it can be dangerous. I came across a site that relates to making teens and adults taller, but I can’t figure out if they sell a service or a product. Please take a look. It seems to be genuine but you never know these days,




will October 3, 2012 at 5:32 pm

im a 20 year old male, i am 5’7 150lbs

im looking for some advice on the best hgh and the safest way to do it
any help is greatly appreciated


Luke October 6, 2012 at 10:27 am

i am 17 and just blew out my left wrist loosing all the tendons and ligaments. the healing time is 3-6 months with rehab. will administering light hgh increase my healing time? if so, i plan on competing in drug tested sports, how long will i fail a drug test.


Magic Cherrine October 10, 2012 at 6:47 am

I’m a 15 almost 16 year old girl. My current height is 5 foot and my pruberty has already started for a couple of years already. Im really dont like being this short and a few friends recommended these hgh pills and calcium pills because I am very sure I will not grow any more with parents being 160cm and 167cm. After reading this article I was wondering if I should try these HGH pills? Is it worth it because I know I will also have to exercisesleep and eat correctly but after doing all this for at least 5 years now I havent seen any changes at all! -Magic Cherrine


David October 11, 2012 at 6:15 pm


I am 15 years old, i am currently 5 foot, which is the average height of a 13 year old. I am very worried about my growth because i checked on the 9th of December 2011 and i was 4 foot 6, so i have only grown a few inches in almost a year…whats my best option?


Ray October 14, 2012 at 8:09 pm

I am 15 years old, 6’0 tall, and 150 lbs. I work out 5 days out of the week at school. I am very uncomfortable with my body because I am not very muscular and I was thinking of taking Sytropin to help build muscle and burn extra fat but I don’t know if it is safe or not. So, can you help me out and tell me if it is safe and if I should just wait until I am done growing?


joe December 4, 2012 at 7:08 pm

I am 18 i am 6’2 220 i want to take hgh to burn my body fat off and increase muscle mass because im trying to play college sports but i only want to do one 6 month cycle to get my body in the right shape and hopefully grow 2 more inches. I am not sure if i should take Hgh or any other supplement may you please help decide what should i do and if i should take hgh what should i take? please thank you email me at

Fernie April 4, 2013 at 2:00 pm

Matt I’m 35 years old and was wondering if taking hgh will have any effects on my height cause I definitely don’t want to grow any more since I am 6’10


Hunter April 9, 2013 at 3:16 pm


I’m Hunter, and I’m 15 years old and about 175, a mostly muscular build. I lift anywhere from 3-5 days a week, I run several miles a day. I play highschool soccer. But my concern isn’t about using HGH to build, mainly height. I’m 5 ’8 at the moment, but I’m on the ADHD medication aderall. And it supposedly stunts your growth. I haven’t grown since my last doctors checkup in October, and I’m worried the medicine will affect my overall developed growth. Could I take HGH in moderation? Just to make sure that my growth patterns continue without being stunted my aderall. Much appreciated answers


Jordon April 10, 2013 at 1:41 am

Hi there! My name is Jordon, I’m 17, I turn 18 in November. I’m 5’8″, 145 and wanting to get big, fast. I’ve recently strongly considered taking a workout supplement called “Growth Factor-9″ it’s a complex hGH antecedent. What are some things I should be aware of before taking? Risks, side effects etc. :)


Romi April 11, 2013 at 5:41 pm

Hi iam 18 years old girl and my height is 5.2 and I want to grow till 5.7. Will this hgh help me grow however I do not want any weight or muscle gain. If yes how long do I have to take this hgh in order yo get 5.7. Plz answer thank you:) iam desperate!


Porter April 13, 2013 at 1:07 am

Hi I’m porter I’m 19 years old 165 lbs not fat not to skinny. I just started working out again and I’m taking sytropin oral HGH spray and another testosterone booster. I just want to make sure what I’m doing is safe before I mess myself up long term. I was thinking of just using the HGH since I’m already at the age where I produce the most testosterone. The sytropin oral spray stimulates that thing that produces HGH in your body to naturally make more its not the injection. It’s be awesome if I heard back from someone.


Kaylee May 18, 2013 at 2:01 pm

I turned 16 in April. Im a female and I am 5 foot. I hit puberty when I was 11, but since then I have only grown an inch. Not only is it hard to do things my other friends can that are at a normal height; ride bigger dirt bikes, hockey, basketball. They all have an advantage. I was just wondering if they might prescribe it to me.


Kaylee May 18, 2013 at 2:07 pm

I’m talking about hgh injections to make me taller. Or any kind of hgh that would help me get taller.


Kevind May 18, 2013 at 11:06 pm

How much hgh is safe to take for growing , without heart problems and sideffects in order to gain the most


Greg May 19, 2013 at 1:20 am

Hi there. My names Greg I’m a guy and I’m 16 I weigh 155lbs. I’m not fat but I do have some weight I’d like to drop and replace with abs pecks ect. I just read an article talking about using sytropin spray in the morning and one 1285 muscle extreme pill in the evening. A website is giving a free trail of both products. Coming from the result photo, of the narrator of the article on Men’s life& health, after 4 weeks of using these products he gained the type of body I’d like to have. Some I’m ask do you believe this would be safe for me to take? And what would happen if I took it and gained muscle then stopped taking it. Please write me on email or anyway! Jus as long as I can have some feed back, thank you!


Fabiana May 19, 2013 at 10:48 pm

I’m a 16 year old female and I have been 4’11 for about 5 years now. I would like to get to 5’2 at least, would it be a good idea to take supplements of HGH or should I wait till I’m older. It would be more ideal to take it now. I’m a theatre major in my high school and being short really affects what roles I’m able to play.


Daniela June 19, 2013 at 7:11 pm

Hello my name is Daniela I’m 16 years old and I’m 5’1 and I would love to grow a little taller and I want to know if I can get any risk for getting the shot , I would love to know your opinions please thanks


Zack August 13, 2013 at 2:34 pm

I’m 16 6’2” and weigh 220 pounds will this help me lose weight. My target is 190. I’ve tried a lot of exercise and it doesn’t work. I’m overweight and will this help me lose weight and gain muscle. Many have told me you will not get taller because all your facial hair is out. Will this help me?


Matt Crenshaw August 27, 2013 at 12:49 pm

Zack, HGH is known to have an effect on height, body weight, and other measurements when used correctly in those with a deficiency. However, you are still underage, and HGH is not approved for weight loss or muscle growth. For best weight loss and muscle growth results, I suggest talking with your physician. There could be additional factors you don’t know about that could be interfering with your exercise and weight loss results.


Tierra August 17, 2013 at 5:29 pm

Hi, I’m a 15-year-old girl and I only gain about an inch or two each year now. I am 4’10″ and am sick of being so small (I’ve been mistaken as an 8-year-old!) I want to know if I should ask my doctor if she could prescribe me some growth hormone, so I can be at least closer to the height I should be at this age.


Matt Crenshaw August 27, 2013 at 12:47 pm

Tierra, growth hormone is best used for those suffering from HGH deficiency. While it could have an effect on height, it’s not ideal for growing teenagers and is known to cause side effects. You are more than welcome to ask your doctor about growth hormone, and if your doctor prescribes it, then by all means take it. But, it might not be an ideal solution.


Mary August 25, 2013 at 12:52 pm

Hi, my name is Mary…… Ever since I turned 11 I was like 4ft 8in….. I was always the tallest in my class…Now that I’m about to turn 15 in October (I am 5ft) I am the shortest girl…….. Everybody tells me that I’m not going to grow because my mom stopped growing when she was 12 and she is 5ft 3in …… My dad is 5ft 10in…when I was 3-6 i had to take steroids because of asma and at the age of twelve I stop eating because I weighed 140 pounds and now I weigh 117pounds….. I really want to grow a little more, at least like my mom….. One of my friends is taking them and he had great progress….Matt Crenshaw or anybody…. Do you recommend them for me?…..


Matt Crenshaw August 27, 2013 at 12:45 pm

Mary, you are still underage, and from what it sounds like, you don’t have an HGH deficiency. So, taking HGH might not be the ideal solution. However, if you feel that there is something interfering with your natural growth, then consulting a physician would be the best route to go.


John September 8, 2013 at 9:36 pm

Is it legal to take sytropin in college? Is it natural? Would I get in trouble if I use it before college? I’m wanting to get muslced up and lose fat ! When it comes to a drug test does it show positive or negative? Looking for some great answers ASAP! Thank you guys!


Matt Crenshaw September 9, 2013 at 5:06 pm

John, sytropin is legal to take if you are over 18 years old. It is completely natural, and doesn’t use synthetic HGH. In fact, it doesn’t contain HGH at all but a mix of amino acids and other ingredients that boost hgh production. As far as I can tell, it doesn’t contain any ingredients that show up on a drug test or give a false positive, but just in case, you’ll want to talk with your doctor.


Daniel September 30, 2013 at 7:40 pm

Mr. Crenshaw, I am currently 20 years old, 5’9-5’10, 165lbs. Growth Hormone has been on my mind lately and I was curious about some effects it my have on me. I am considerably fit. Running 3 miles about 4 times a week. I believe last time I was on the bench was three weeks ago pushing up 255lbs. I too was also curious about the effects it would have on my height… Although, if I were to take it, my main motive would be to build muscle. Am I still too young? Or am I TOO OLD to feel the growth effects? Will I keep the mass that I gain? Is there a certain ptc I should take? Can you give me some money cause this stuff is going to HURT my wallet? ps. I know some of the questions are best answered by going to see a doc BUT I honestly just want another opinion.


Matt Crenshaw October 1, 2013 at 2:41 pm

Daniel, at 20 years old, you’re probably on the tail end of growing any taller. Chances are likely your growth plates have closed, so HGH likely won’t do much for your height at this point (though it may – some people still grow in their early twenties). Increasing HGH will have a positive impact on muscle growth and recovery, as it plays a key role in protein synthesis. Whether you keep the mass you gain depends on how actively you work to keep it, as the more you use muscles, the more likely they are to stay. As far as specific prescriptions, that’s entirely up to the doctor. HGH will definitely hurt your wallet, as many insurance companies won’t cover HGH prescriptions unless you suffer from a deficiency. While popular, this blog doesn’t generate enough money for me to give you anything other than advice, and even then, I’m not qualified to give medical advice on an individual basis over the internet.


Coley October 8, 2013 at 12:40 am

Matt, I’m 22, almost 23 if I take sytropin, only for a little bit to build muscle, will this have a negative affect when I get to my 30′s or before that?


Matt Crenshaw October 8, 2013 at 11:59 am

Coley, Sytropin is an hgh spray that features amino acids to boost hgh production. It does not contain HGH but rather works with your body to boost its natural production. It shouldn’t have long-term negative effect as the ingredients are natural and helpful. However, you may experience mild, temporary side effects depending on how you respond to the ingredients.


Joe Ring March 28, 2014 at 5:23 pm

hey I’m fine with my height (wouldn’t hurt to be taller though) but my main problem is width. I’m 16 and a half and haven’t grown for a year. I have not yet got a full stubble although my moustache is getting quite thick. I want a thicker more mesomorphic frame rather than an ectomorphic frame, could HGH help with this? I heard the clavicle and ribcage plates close last usually around 20 so perhaps they are still open, I’ll get an X-Ray. If they are still open what do you recommend? I have no medical conditions BTW just want thicker wrists etc.. Please reply, thanks!


Matt Crenshaw April 2, 2014 at 2:00 pm

Joe, this is something you really should ask your doctor about. HGH is not a wonder-drug or cure-all for adjusting the aesthetics of your frame. What grows from its use really depends on how the individual responds to the hormone. It might help you pack on lean muscle and increase bone growth, or maybe it won’t do anything for you at all, or maybe it will grow certain parts of you but not the parts you had in mind. Additionally, even though you haven’t grown in a year and a half, a lot of men don’t grow on an ever-steady scale. Sometimes growth occurs in spurts, so it helps to be patient.


rasheed mahfouz April 27, 2014 at 5:05 pm

thank you


Matt Crenshaw April 28, 2014 at 5:01 pm

Rasheed, First and foremost before taking HGH in any form you should ALWAYS ask your doctor. No exceptions. Your doctor will be able to explain what to expect when taking HGH on an individual basis based on your medical history and current individual circumstances. You can read more about benefits here: and side effects here: HGH plays a role in fertility, so taking HGH may improve fertility if used appropriately.


rasheed mahfouz April 27, 2014 at 5:08 pm

note ; i stoped growing at the age of 16 years
