Why Blame the Gene When You Can Gain Extra Inches with Height Increase Exercises

Short persons often make fuss over their height and wish to be a little bit taller. In public places or family occasions it is the taller persons who steal the attention of others. Medium and short heighted persons often feel depressed at being ignored at such gatherings. It is a common belief that after attaining the period of puberty it is not possible to grow taller any more. Therefore, the idea of height increasing exercises may sound risible to you. But believe me; they do not sell fake promises like the spurious drugs readily available in the market to increase height.
The generic factor has obviously a finger in the pie in determining our heights. In fact, from color of our skin to the volume of hair to height—each and everything is very much controlled by the tiny DNA factor. The normal secretion of growth determining hormone or Soma tropic Hormone (STH) comes to a trickle and finally stops secreting once we cross the puberty age. So, even if you have inkling of knowledge of the aforesaid scientific truth, the mere mentioning of height increasing exercises will sound dubious to you.
