Everyone wants to be tall. It is very well known that the height of a person is an important factor in building up one’s personality. Also, height plays a big role in the appearance of a person and can manipulate the way a person is perceived by others. All these are primarily due to the societal norms that govern us. Most importantly, in the case of males, height is one of the decisive factors in determining the status of a person. Hence it does not come as a surprise that many men crave for becoming taller. Additionally, it also affects the appearance of a person. Tall men are considered good looking and more handsome than short men. This coupled with the importance given to height in commanding respect, makes people all over the world yearn for some extra inches. Human Growth Hormones (HGH) may be a boon to those who wish to grow taller. But beware! Delaying HGH intake may not be of much help. HGH cannot make you taller at 25.
For some people, height may even have an adverse impact on their desired career choices. People who wish to join the armed forces, defence forces etc need to be tall enough to qualify the set conditions. If they do not qualify, they may have to forfeit their chance of living the armed forces dream. For those aspiring to be pilots and co-pilots too, height is an important consideration. And the list goes on to include sportsmen as well. When height is given such importance, it is natural for people to resort to other methods of increasing the height and developing stature when the natural growth is stunted.
In the recent years, HGH has been gaining importance and is being regarded as a foolproof supplement that can increase growth. It is available in several forms such as lotions, topical creams, oral pills etc. People have reported that they, indeed, help in increase the height of a person. But researchers prove that the variation induced by the consumption or application of HGH in any form may have different effects on a person depending on the age, gender, thickness of skin and place of application etc. It is also unclear as to how similar the reactions will be on different people. Even if the reactions are similar, it may be possible that HGH cannot make you taller at 25 or at any age higher than that. It is because human growth is dependent on many other things and is influenced by a variety of factors that are not yet completely known. Although HGH contributes to the growth of a person, the influence of other factors cannot be understated. As we grow older, all parts of our body including bones and muscles lose the ability to grow further. Rather energy is spent on sustaining the health of already developed structures. Even by design, human bodies stop growing once the determined level of growth is reached and it happens around adolescence.
