I know there are no exact way or magic pill to help one grow taller, but are there some products (specifically life extension brand) that would at least increase my chances of growing a couple inches. By the way I am a 19 year old 5 ft 5 in male.

Am not aware of any Life Extension products that will help.  You might want to ask your physician if it is too late at your age to try growth hormone.

I may be a little out of the norm but I was 5'10" when I graduated from high school and I grew 5 inches my freshman year in college.

A lot of this has to do with genetics and my dad is 6'5" but you may not be done growing yet.

I read about arginine and ornithine awhile back. Checked it out again to be sure, seems like it might work.

Here's one of the articles I found randomly.

Moderator's Note: Beware of articles that make claims without providing the scientific studies or references to back it up. Beware of articles that claim a nutrient can cure a disease. And lastly, beware of articles without an underwriter or author. 

Hubpages.com is a blog/content site that anyone can post and create content. It is not a reliable source for information, especially when an article appears with the following traits: the webpage has ads to affiliate websites, has anonymous or plagiarized content, lacks scientific references, and contains unlawful disease claims.

Syntax, I questioned the validity of Hubpages' article due to the absence of references to scientific studies, author's name, and for the fact that the blog owner benefits from paid advertisement for posting an article compelling people to purchase the same supplements he is "advertising" on his post.

If his information can be verified by more trusted sources (as mentioned in your post - you found a LE article about it) then it is substantiated. I was only warning people who read this post, follow a link, and jump to conclusions without verifying the accuracy of articles posted on the web. This warning, by the way, applies to anything you find on the web.

I remember reading about this quite some time ago(arginine and ornithine) but don't know how valid the sources were.

It was meant to be a starting point for investigating the claims made by searches.

I've heard it mentioned that l-glutamine before bed could also produce more growth hormone, again I don't know how valid it is but there may be something to it.

Good luck!!! Cool

syntax (2/4/2011)
Well, here is a report encompassing quite a number of studies about Human Growth Hormone:  http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag97/june-abs97.html

   So, are you saying it is questionable as to whether these mixtures of  amino acids stimulate the pituitary production of HGH ? Is that the big question ? I`m not saying you are wrong in that there may be some question about that. Never the less, I can see no harm in taking these mixtures of what are, after all exactly what our bodies produce  as so called building blocks.
   For me myself, I feel I don`t wish to wait any longer to give this stuff a try unless there is some compelling reason not to. At the worst it will be a waste of a small amount of money. The risk [ a small amount of money ] compared to the possible benefits which seem great.   ...syntax


I saw that formula that LEF is selling so don't worry about that article I posted being valid.

If LEF sells it then it should increase your HGH, as they have references!!!

One thing else I remember. When PQQ was deprived in rats they had stunted growth and when it was put back into the diet then stunted growth among other things reversed.

Not sure this would work, but I'm guessing some people may not be able to use PQQ very well or just may need more, just a guess. It wouldn't have any downside that I could think of.

The article I got this from is the short winter addition that came out a few months ago. Smile

> supp's to increase growth?
ironically it's performance supp's (Testosterone)
that are notorious for curbing growth!
. if a 19yr male wants more growth,
they might consider moving to japan
where 5.5ft size is the norm .
. if you would like to avoid short children,
then have them eat a western diet (lots of
protein, esp'ly meat, and simple sugars).
. if I were short, I would count my blessings:
that would give me a reduced risk of elder cancers .
