Stretching is one of the best grow taller exercises around. This is because stretching causes the body to produce human growth hormones called EIGs (exercise induced growth hormones). EIGs result from catecholamines, acid-base balance, nitric oxide, and lactate. Nitric oxide and lactate especially increase height. Human growth hormones harden cartilage, strengthen bones and make you grow taller.
Grow taller exercises must be performed with very high intensity to cause production of lactate for increase of height. Lactate will stimulate production of human growth hormones during and after exercise in rest periods, thus making you grow taller faster. Stretching exercises must be performed for at least 10 minutes with high intensity to grow taller.
