Can't w/ 400 charact: Great question, but almost impossible to discuss with 400 characters. Wikipedia does a nice job. Fgf has 22 subtypes. It is a chemical signal to help "fibroblasts" grow and function. It helps with wound healing and growing blood vessels. Nih research grants are spent to discover how it works and how we can use it to our advantage, or in some cases block it if a cancer cell needs it to spread. ...Read more

Hi im 18 can I use growth factor plus to gain height? and what are the side effects?

Unlikely: Not familiar with growth factor plus. If it is over the counter, it is garbage. Most males have the epiphyses of their long bones fused by 18==that is where lengthening occurs. In some families, the bone age lags behind the chronologic age--ask when your parents, aunts and uncles stopped growing, or have a bone age radiograph of your wrist. If not yet fused, Human growth hormone could help ...Read more

Hi, Is the Growth Factor Plus really works towards increasing height and is there any side effects with this product?

If you already have: stopped growing, Growth Hormone will NOT increase your height, but CAN cause serious side effects. Fortunately, it's unlikely that true Growth Hormone is in GH+ or other commercial supplements. If you haven't stopped growing, but have normal GH levels, you shouldn't be prescribed or administered GH even by a doctor. The major side effect of these supplements is that they are a waste money. ...Read more

Why does the growth factor plus website offer full guarantee of increase if the height growth is not possible at a certain age?

To lure you in!: I'm pretty cynical but most dietary supplement companies have no published evidence of any benefit from their products. They're only interested in convincing you to buy their stuff even if that means making wild miraculously impossible claims backed by "promises" of guarantee. But have you known anyone who got their money back? It's not like returning something to Nordstrom or Costco! Good luck! ...Read more
