In search of ways to increase height, people came across several ads and sites on the Internet stating how exercise can booster a person's growth.

Is it possible? The question may be answered by a yes and a no.

No doubt, exercise is good for the body. Coupled it with good posture and healthy diet, you will be benefited with so much more. Exercise in particular, if practiced when you are still young is sure to favor you with an admirable height since growth spurts are at its best especially during the puberty stage. Hence, exercises do increase the height but only at a considerable period in one's life.

However, there are many sites out there that claim to know exercises to increase height that can lengthen the bones after one has reached adulthood. Don't listen to these claims. Your bones can't lengthen when you stretch them. They're done growing.

But if you really want to lengthen or stretch your bones, it can be done through surgery. Ming you, this procedure is painful, very risky, and highly expensive.

Moreover, this does not mean that exercising is useless. Still, there are fitting ways to enhance your height if you are unhappy about it. And exercise is still beneficial somehow.

Exercise slims your figure and makes you more muscular, which in turn makes you look taller. It's also very good for your bones, it makes them stronger and less likely to weaken or shrink during old age.

A healthy diet is just as important.

In life, you must take the effort to consume good dosage of protein, amino acids, calories, and calcium to replenish used nutrients and to renew your body's energy. Poor eating habits and ignoring your body's needs will gradually lead to stunted growth and weak bones.

Your clothes also enhance your height.

Choose solid and darker color clothes that are suitable for your frame. Pinstripes are good as well as they make you look slim and tall. Pick out clothing that are comfortable and pleasing for you. Also, do not forget that poise is of importance too. Therefore, keep you head up and keep your back straight wherever you go.
