    I wonder if there is any substnace that can allow us to jump higher (I'd also consider its effect on animals, can we make any animal jump higher?).

    As regards strengh, I bet adrenaline is the one that improves our power. Are there any others (few examples please)?

    There's nothing legal that I'm aware of that makes you jump higher than you normally can. You could increase your muscle mass in your legs and that might get you higher but only by a little not by feet.

    I do not care if it's legal, I'm just asking because in one of the tales characters were able to jump higher after drinking an elixsir, therefore I am curious if something like that exist.

    i'm only 1.43 m height, but i can jump higher than my friend who is 1.5m (we had done physical test). i think because i usually go for exercise like running, weight training that build my muscle strength. thats maybe one of the reason.

    If you want to jump super high, no magic chemical is going to make it happen. That is fantasy. Since jumping is a function of you exerting enough force to overcome gravity, you have to both maximize your acceleration upward and minimize your mass. You'd look like a frog, which huge overly developed legs and not much mass in the chest and arms. The NFL record is 1.7m and that's with heavily developed muscles in the chest, I can imagine a normal human can leap up to 2m if their body was geared specifically toward jumping.

    You don't need chemicals, just the right sneakers.

    Its the way nature is!
    If you dont like it, go somewhere else....

    Ok, nobody is going to answer this question seriously. Well i will.

    Anabolic steroids will increase muscle density, and overal strength.

    Adrenaline will temporarily supply your body with more oxygen by putting more strain on them, making your heart pump faster, and constrict your blood vessels.

    Erythropoietin will increase the erythrocyte production, and increase your overall oxygen transport potential.

    All of the above are illegal drugs.
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
