Does Height Increases by Hanging?


Yes. Most people like to increase their height if it is possible. Being tall is an added advantage socially. One is admired for being so. Also, one can take part in several sports.

One stops growing tall after a certain age. For women it is between 18 -20 and for boys 21-23. The hormone that is released by the pituitary gland promotes physical growth. A woman can grow till 22years and a man up to 25 years.

Good nutrition, exercise and yoga as well as vitamin and mineral supplements can help add a few inches. Of course, genetics do play an important role and hereditary factors do determine height. Apart from these factors that influence height, one can also hang from the rod and increase one’s height. Let us understand this phenomenon better.

How Height Increases by Hanging?

  • One must hang from a rod. The weight of the body should be placed on the hands. By doing this exercise 30 minutes per week or 1 to 5 minutes daily, one can increase one’s height. This exercise improves one’s posture and increases the height.
