Ayurveda/height growth


Respected mem
my age is 20 years and i want to ask that race (runing) help to increase height
sombody says race stop height growth
what is reality
pls suggest me mem

Dear Mr ravi

Race or running doesn't harm the height directly. But it won't help either for ht gain. So for stamina building and endurance race is good. Some times if over done it can put burden on soft discs between joints. That may harm ht minutely as in old age degeneration of joint discs may reduce 2-5 cms.

Health and Peace
