Height enhancer, gloxi. How effective is it?

My name is Jake. I am 23 years old. Im also curious about this gloxi thing which they said is effective in enhancing height. Some of my friends were saying that it is effective and it worked for them. All of them were teenagers so im doubtful that their growth were part of their stages. They were convincing me to also try it but im considering the cost and i dont want to risk my money for nothing. In the TV advertisements, this product was said to be tested by some laboratory doctors or experts claiming that they have undergone lots of experiments before they come up with this thing. So since there are lots of doctors in this site, i want to hear your opinion about this GLOXI height enhancer.

Hello dear,

First of all, kindly do not get influenced by any over the counter products or advertisements that claims to increase the height of an individual.

Height of an individual is determined by Genetics, Environmental & Nutritional factors and Hormonal factors (most important the Growth Hormone secreted by pituitary gland in brain)
An individual stops growing in height after the fusion of the Epiphyses (growth plates) of the long bones, which occurs by the age of 19-22 yrs in males.

If you want to know if the growth plates have closed or not you can get an X-Ray of your wrist and forearm done.
It'll show the growth plates and whether they are fused or still open.

Wishing you Good Health.
Thanks and take care.
