does peak height maximizer really work?!


Question: Does peak height maximizer really work?
Do i have to take 3tablets daily? Isn't that to much.. it says on the supplement facts that calcium has 1200mg per tablet.. so if I consume 3 tablet a day thats 3600mg of calcium carbonate! Dang! There goes my organs....

Answers:

A supplement of any kind is not going to make you taller than you would normally be without it. Your eventual height is determined by your genes. If you eat a reasonably nutritious diet, that is all you need to reach your full height potential as dictated by your genetic makeup. 3600 mg of calcium a day is too much. 1200 mg is sufficient. With consistent overdosing of calcium some symptoms are:

Constipation: A common side effect of too much calcium in a person's diet is constipation. It is a good idea to take magnesium and vitamin D supplements to ensure that there is proper absorption of calcium. Constipation for prolonged period of time can lead to stomach ulcers, pain and bloating.

Kidney Stones: If there is too much calcium in your blood, it might lead to a condition known as hypercalcemia. This condition which is characterized by vomiting, fatigue, loss of appetite and persistent thirst can negatively impact kidney functions. This high levels of urinary calcium causes the formation of kidney stones. Your body will use only so much of the calcium and attempt to eliminate the excess.

Flatulence: One very embarrassing and annoying calcium side effect is the formation of gas or flatulence. It makes the person feel bloated, though it is not a serious medical condition.

Stomach Problems: Prolonged use of too much calcium can cause stomach problems like nausea, vomiting and abdominal cramps.

Plague in Arteries: Too much calcium in the blood can lead to the accumulation of plaque in the arteries. This can exert a hypertensive effect on the heart muscle which increases the risk of a heart attack.

Risk of Prostate Cancer: Some studies have found a link between calcium intake of 600 mg per day with an increased risk of prostrate cancer. Although the research is not conclusive, it is better to observe caution and limit the intake of calcium in the diet.

Calcium Toxicity: Too much calcium in the blood (over 2500 mg) can cause calcium toxicity. It can develop into abnormal deposits of calcium in tissues, which is harmful for the body. Taking 3600 mg each day is way too much.
