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.

Only formula that worked for some was invented and patented by a Turkish scientist named Can Alkoclar İ know because İ saw the trials in height growth forum. Success rate was 50% but its still better than nothing. A hard to reach guy though
