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.

Depends on how tall your parents are. Even with that extra bit of information your height can still be unpredictable

August 23, 2018


I’m a 19 y/o male and an even 6 foot. Apparently my dad grew almost two inches at age 20 and reached a solid 6’2. Is it possible I may grow slightly more? Also, my uncles are at 6’1 and 6’2, thanks.

June 11, 2018


I'm male and my height is 5.2, and I'm 24 years of age. I'm short and it's become quite the insecurity. If possible to grow at least a few inches, how can I make that possible ?

i just saw that some basketball player who played with mjordan was not in a highschool basketbal team or college
because he was 5.8 feet and he was working at the airport but he suddenly grow to 6.8 in one year
and there's another player Gordon Hayward he was like 5.8 and his father was like 5.10
so he was hoping to be 6.2 or so
before i ask my question
my great grandfather he was like 7 feet
and my grandfather and father and uncles they are like 5.6 to 5.8
but me and my big brother we are taller than them
i'm 18.5 yearsold and i'm 5.11 and my brother he is 1 year older than me and 1 inch
so due to the information that i gave you
is there a chance for me that i will get taller
and thank you (sorry for my english)

I am 20 years old And I am really short with a height of 5'2 and this is my height since I was on My second year High school it seems like I didn't get any taller. Is it possible for me to grow Btw my siblings are tall my younger sister is 5'8 and she just 16 years old same for my younger brother who is just 13 years old.

June 18, 2017


It depends on average girls keep growing until 14-16 16 being very rare and boys generally stop growing from 16-18 however on really rare occasions boys keep growing to like 21-25. But 5'2 is ok for a womans height look at the likes of ariena grande world famous singer shes like somewhere from 5'0-5'2 so it isn't that bad also Kevin hart is on the shorter side at 5'4 and ppl love him and die laughing at him. Also being shorter can benifit you because there are a lot of guys who generally like shorter girls so that could go in your favour. Also if your brother is 5'8 at 13 that is extremly tall for his age at 13 i was 5'6 and ended up at like 6'2 and a half 189cm so your brother will likely be like somewhere from 6'2-6'5. If it really bothers you tho there is always surgury you could look at but you would really have to do a lot of research on it and also figure if your body could handle it. Anyway hope i made you feel a little better at 5'2 :P

July 20, 2017

Getting taller is pretty much impossible without wearing height increasing insoles like the altitude insole.
