    Yes, it's absolutely true. Just ten minutes of pilates three times a week will result in a height gain of anything between 8 and 14 inches.

    No, of course it isn't true!

    The HGH, the Human Growth Hormone is just a hormone that can you find normally in the individual body. Guys and women that are youngsters have a greater amount of HGH in their bodies as compared to older people. As you grow up, the total amount of HGH begins to fall rapidly.

    I am a huge Pilate's fan. I have Pilate's to thank for my body. It will help strengthen your inner core muscles and improve posture. Just by standing up straight you will appear taller, however nothing in life can actually make you taller. Height potential is decided at conception- nothing will increase it.

    LOL!

    Lying down for a few hours does in fact make you slightly taller, and then you shorten back down during the day while you're upright.

    Instead of Pilates, try a really long nap!

    pilates can help you stand straighter, but no, it doesn't really increase your height. that is genetically predetermined.
