Why Protein Is JUST As Critical As HGH To Getting TallerTable Of Contents
- The Breakdown
- Why IGF-1 injections were excluded
After learning more about biology, I was looking back at my heightmaxxing guide I posted in May and I realized that I have neglected a crucial factor in heightmaxxing, and this guide/thread is designed to explain how crucial it is to your height.
A hormone can be thought of as a messenger. In this case, Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a hormone that messages the body to produce a protein called IGF-1 (Insulin-like growth factor 1). One of the effects of this protein is that it causes your bones to elongate, which in turn, makes you taller.
What we need to understand here is that proteins are made of amino acids (think of it as the equivalent to construction materials). When you consume protein, your body breaks them down into amino acids and stores them for use (your body's construction materials). When the body needs to build a protein, it gets the stored amino acids (construction materials) and builds it.
If you are low on protein (protein deficiency), your body's ability to build things will LITERALLY be hindered! From hair follicles, to nails, to new layers of skin, to anti-bodies and even your HEIGHT, your body will literally NOT be able to build these new cells at a sufficient scale. Think of this as a factory that has had its production capacity hindered.
If you are deficient in protein, HGH's ability to work will be stunted as even though it's demanding the body to produce IGF-1, so although the hormone will cause the body to be focused on building IGF-1, the body just doesn't have a lot of construction materials to build the protein at a large enough scale, hindering the effectiveness of IGF-1 production. (Don't get me wrong, your growth rate will still be accelerated, but probably at useless levels if you're low on protein)

Since the body is always producing HGH, if more protein is allocated, the more materials your body has to make IGF-1 (and other proteins) and in turn, you can become taller. You can get taller by hyper-dosing protein alone. @Prettyboy can confirm this, as he experienced it being on a carnivore diet.
A high-protein diet is correlated to height for this EXACT reason , and also explains why plant-based diets (I will explain why it's bad in a bit) and malnutrition are linked with stunted stature. 
The study about plant-based milk doesn't tell the whole story
A new study found that children reared on a vegan diet may have stunted growth and other health problems compared to those raised on a diet that includes meat. The study was conducted by researchers at the University College London and the Children's Memorial Health Institute. They looked at...
Now, not all proteins are created equal. Although plants do contain protein, they also contain proteinases (they basically eat protein), protein inhibitors, and ribosome inactivators (they literally shut down your protein producing factories) --
This is also why it's hard to find proper vegan bodybuilders for this EXACT reason. A considerable amount of "plant protein" they consume just get eaten and inhibited. In this case, getting your protein from animal products (milk, eggs, meat) is a MUST.
So, what can we do to optimize our protein levels? One of the first things we can do is to make sure we know how much we need.
"For most adults with minimal physical activity, experts recommend consuming a minimum daily average of 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram (kg) of body weight."
So, the formula to know how much protein you need to sustain yourself is as follows: Weight in kg * 0.8 = Satisfactory protein intake (in grams)
But to heightmax, here is the equation to follow: Weight in kg * 3.5 = Heightmaxing protein intake (in grams).
We also want to make sure we know what the side effects are so here are a list: https://www.livestrong.com/article/13731785-too-much-protein-symptoms/
One of them is bad breath, so to minimize or eliminate it, you'll want to read this: https://looksmax.org/threads/breath-looksmaxxing-guide-how-to-have-godly-breath-at-all-times.505861/
So, what do I recommend to get protein?
- Organic grass-fed meats
- Organic eggs
- Full-fat raw organic milk
- Quality seafood
- Whey Protein
You can go on a carnivore diet for f**ks sake and get results.
Why IGF-1 injections were excluded
IGF-1 is the finished product, it is a protein itself, so it bypasses the process we listed earlier. IF you inject IGF-1, it will automatically do what it has to do, it doesn't require conversion. A user informed me that HGH had a longer lifespan than IGF-1 (LR3) in the body, so that is something you should consider. It seems here that taking both is recommended unless you want to inject IGF-1 every hour or so. Also, I was also told that IGF-1 has to be cycled 4 weeks on, two weeks off.
GH boosters + lack of protein = "MK-677/HGH doesn't work".
GH boosters + protein hyper-dose = Height increase (varies on growth plates of course)
Protein hyper-dose or Protein hyper-dose + exercise = Height increase (varies on growth plates of course)
