Is it possible to grow taller?

can you get taller?

The quick answer is probably not because…

After your teens or after the age of 20-to-25 you stop growing unless you have some glandular problem and don't blame your parents for how tall you are because…

Your height is based on many different genetic factors (this being the reason why some tall people have short parents) but overall…

You are more than likely to be short if most of the people in your family are short on average but…

It is possible to maximize your growth potential by…

You can get taller thru surgery but…

The surgery cost up to 150,000 dollars and it's a very painful process that basically requires your legs to be broken allowing them to get longer and even after that procedure is successful…

You have to wait 6 months to walk again and up to a year for the bones to harden and…

I doubt insurance companies will cover this expensive procedure for cosmetic reasons unless you got it for a deformity.

4 'Grow taller' methods that do not work…

1. Stretching

Some people think you can increase your height by stretching which is ridiculous if you just use logic and understand that when you stretch…

You are stretching your muscles and not your bones and even those who claim the stretching works only report gaining ¼ inch in height and they could've got that extra inch wearing the right pair of shoes and…

One stretching exercise some people use to increase height requires you to hang from a bar (like in a pull-up) but…

I can easily debunk that because I myself have done thousands of pull-ups in my lifetime where I hang constantly and I can tell you I have not seen a major height increase.

2. Glucosamine & chondroitin

Glucosamine & chondroitin are helpful in preventing joint pain and strengthening joints (and even that is disputed) but I doubt they will assist in making you any taller because…

I personally been taking joint supplements on and off for years to maintain healthy joints and I have not noticed any difference in my height.

3. Visualization/ Hypnosis

The claim here is simply that if you can visualize, dream or see yourself as being taller that in itself will make you taller but…

If you really believe that saying "I will be taller" over and over every morning will make you taller then go for it!

4. Magic pills/supplements

Just like those pills that claim they can increase the size of a man's penis are BS…

The same goes for ANY pill claiming that you can increase your height just by taking it and whenever someone is trying to sell you some 'Grow Taller' method and they claim they added 1-to-4 inches in height…

Ask them if they gained those 1-to-4 inches during puberty or after the age of 20-to-25 because if they gained it during puberty then the 1-to-4 inches gain was more than likely going to happen anyway and…

Even if they gained 1-to-4 inches after their 20's then be highly skeptical since it's virtually impossible to natural grow taller in your 20's because your growth plates have fused together.

You are absolutely right about eating right food and getting enough sleep is very important to increase height naturally. DNA is very important factor but people should know that there are environmental factors that help increasing height significantly. Sleeping,diet, and exercise is the best solutions. Thank you for this great post.

Whoever wrote this article is talking out your ass! I'm 24 years old english lad and purchased the 'grow taller 4 idiots' which is advertised on the internet! Didn't get my hopes up but was curious due to the amazing feedback and success stories I tried it. I followed it properly and stuck to it doing all the correct stretches/excercises, following the diet and getting the right amount of sleep! Before I started the programme I was 1.65cm so basically 5ft 5 and now I measure myself at exactly 1.70 so 5ft 7! Maybe it was all hidden in posture but this worked for me! I would reccomend 'grow taller 4 idiots' to anyone was only about £35 and to gain 2 inches its worth every penny! 5ft 7 is still small for a british man but the confidence boost is a great feeling! I have no reason to lie, maybe it may not work for everyone but I am no different to the next person so if you do it properly I don't see why it shouldn't work for you. Hope this helps!

It is very much possible to grow taller from stretching. Personally, I have gained about an inch and a quarter in just about a month and a half. I stretch every day before I sleep and when I wake up. I'm 19

I am not tall, barely 5'8". My girlfriend is almost 5'10". Being, or becoming tall is not so very much important. More important the quality of the person you are.

I'm 25 years old girl.. but my height is only 40 inches. I'm just like a four years old girl. Atleast I can't got in to a bus alone. So I am unable to go anywhere without anyone. My other every things are very normal. I'm an University student. I got treatments by lots of ayurvedic and western doctors. they decide that CALCIUM is stocked in my bones. So my height increase is stopped. sometimes I got taller about one or two centimeters by that treatments. some joint of my bone structure are different than others. Doctors said that joints are calcified.. Have you any treatments for my physical problem. please sir , I want to be taller so far.. It's my dream. when I go any where lots of peoples look at me.It is very obstacles to me. I don't want to be taller lots. But I like to get in to bus alone. I like to do my works by my self. I'm so helpless. Can you help me. I'm waiting for your positive reply soon.
Thank you.............

at 25 the bones are probably sealed at the ends . i will mention a pioneer in joint repair his name is Dr. Allen Dunn. He uses a combination of hgh human growth hormone and stem cells from your own body to repair your joints. www.iagh.com

Your spine relaxes during the night, so in the morning you are about an inch taller. Is it possible to keep that extra inch and possibly go even beyond that if you stretch your spine regularly? So you would be " growing " ( not really just releasing the tension of your spine ) about an inch or two, right? Or is that not possible?

Im 1.76m tall, and I would love that extra 2.5 cm.

actually, you can add around 2-3 inches with stretching, adrian is right that your bones can't stretch. however, most people have bad posture and stretching is able to improve that by decompressing the spine thus adding a few inches. I started yoga this year and have grown 1 inch.
