Have you got tired of reading loads of articles on height gain and got nothing substantial because all those articles give you suggestions which are similar to most of the articles. Now, you have stopped raising your hopes for increasing your height and accepted your current height.
Then I can totally understand your condition and it is not sympathy my friend. It is the empathy because I am also an average height person.
Mostly the review for any product is based on its sale, customer’s reviews and its features. Information about the product is then collected through Internet and compared with other products in the same category and ranking is done with the help of different parameters.
My approach regarding this review is different because I wanted to give it a personal touch. I want to convince myself about the product I am listing here before telling my readers about it.
Therefore, I have done an extensive research on the popular height gaining pills.
What did I find through my offline approach?
Although we all do Google check for any product or services we still rely on local references and gut instinct. Isn’t it? And I did the same! I went to gyms, clinics, and chemists to know about the products which are ACTUALLY used by people.
So let’s see what I found when I headed outside my home to collect the information about height gainers from local sources.
Interviews with doctors
I have consulted some best orthopedics to know what they think about the chances of height gain after puberty in both genders. I have interviewed Dr. Gaurav Rathore, Senior Consultant- Orthopedics & Joint Replacement, Jaypee Hospital, Noida to know his opinion.
Here are some excerpts from the interview
Me: Which factor decides our height other than our genetic configuration?
Dr. Rathore: There are many factors but some of them are very important which includes Nutrition and diet, Exercise level or level of daily physical activity and not to mention, mental and physical well being.
Me: Can you specifically tell us about the body compositions which are required for growth?
Dr. Rathore: Growth requires interplay between nutrition and exercise levels. Muscular body with some level of fat at the time of puberty clubbed with a nutritious diet is the key to a good height.
Me: Is it true, height can be increased till 35? What is your take on that?
Dr. Rathore: Height ceases to grow after the growth plates of bones fuse, usually 16-18 and rarely till the early twenties. Earlier in girls and later in boys.
Me: After Puberty, under your supervision, do you recommend any height pills?
Dr. Rathode: There are no safe tested supplements to increase height. Some supplements or so-called growth pills can do more harm than good.
Me: Like many milk energy drink companies claim, sufficient amount of protein and calcium can increase children height, is same thing true for adults too?
Dr. Rathode: Adults cannot increase their height after growth plates fuse. Most of the claims by drink companies are arbitrary and not backed by evidence.
Me: How is your treatment different than other height increasing pills available over online stores like Amazon and other foreign websites?
Dr. Bagga: The main difference is that I have formulated my treatment. I manufacture and distribute my treatment myself and not through any online portal.
Me: Do you customize the treatment for the user?
Dr. Bagga: Sometimes, the treatment varies from user to user but most of the times it works for a majority of the user.
Me: Does it work differently for males and females?
Dr. Bagga: No, it works same on both genders.
Me: What is the effective time period for this treatment?
Dr. Bagga: The minimum time period is three months in which a user gains 15 – 25 mm height and he/she can gain 5 – 10 cm in 1 year time.
Me: What is the success ratio of your treatment?
Dr. Bagga: 100 percent but It doesn’t work in 2 conditions. If the user is on medication for Thyroid or Tuberculosis then it won’t work for you.
Me: Would it work for all age groups?
Dr. Bagga: Yes, it gives a result for any age group but if someone starts early in life then he/she can gain more height.

Discussion with professional fitness trainers
I visited various gyms and talked to professional trainers to know if exercising can increase height. According to Vikram Singh from GymPlus, small and toned waistline makes a person appear tall.
Moreover, if a person exercises like stretching and pull ups then it helps him/her in the correction of posture and height gain.
What did I find with my online approach?
Popular height gaining products over the internet are rated on the basis of users reviews but when you start searching for height gaining products, you come across many results which also include even those products which have nothing to do with height and finding an effective height increasing product become a herculean task.
I started my search with an online approach and searched for following keywords
1st Term – Grow taller pills
2nd; 3rd Term – Grow Taller; How to Grow Taller
4th Term – Height Pills
After rummaging through a large number of organic results provided by Google against different keywords, I have finally selected products which were actually meant for height gain. The list of this height increasing products includes:

This product has received both positive and negative reviews. Few customers experienced 2-3 inches height increase. However, most users felt this product is fake considering the ‘too many’ good effects it gives and the lack of ingredient details!
It claims to not only increase height but also help in improving overall health by preventing diseases, increasing memory power, improving digestion system and more (which doesn’t seem possible altogether).
This product is doing rounds on the Internet and is quite popular in India. However, their original website doesn’t show any reviews as of yet. The shopclues.com has discontinued the sale of this product making it more suspicious.
However, most of the customers using it are not satisfied. A reviewer said that even after using this for several months, it didn’t help him gain even a centimeter.
Many customers have called it fake since it doesn’t have any money back guarantee.

Few Recommended Grow Taller Exercises
Exercise strengthens your muscles and helps in blood circulation. It also activates the hormones which promote height gain. Here are some common ways to perform exercise and gain height without any problems
- Bar hanging
Hanging vertically can stretch your spines and increases your height from 1-2 inches. You can also hang on a horizontal bar, but it must have a proper space to stretch your whole body. This method works slowly but if you perform it continuously 920 seconds every day) then you can get the results in 1 or 2 months.
- Dryland swim
Lay down flat on a mat keeping your legs and arms straight. Move your left arm in the upper direction and raise the right leg. Be in this position for 4-5 seconds and repeat the position.
- Pelvic shift
- Cobra stretch
- Hopping exercise
It is the easiest exercise which can be performed at any place. Jump with your right leg and touch your left-hand elbow with it. Let your right hand pointing in the upper direction. Change the legs and hand after 4 seconds.
- Forward spine stretch
Sit on a mat laying your legs straight. Try to touch your hand with your toes without bending knees. You might find it difficult but once you do practice you will find it easy. This exercise makes your spines flexible and increases your height
After gathering information from various sources, I found that gaining height after puberty is very difficult but not impossible. But one should not raise his/her hope too much because you can gain only a few inches (3 – 4) to your height.
You have to be patient because every treatment takes time to show results. The best way to look tall is to maintain an upright posture, keep yourself fit and active.
