    Grow Taller
    yonose posted:
    My oldest son is 14 yo. His about 5'3 right now. My husband is 5'9 & I'm only 5'3 (on a good day). My son would really like to play football at a collegiate level, but I worried that he may not grow to be tall enough. Is there vitamin supplements out there what could possibly help him to grow taller? Also, I've heard that hanging upside down for 20 to 30 mins a day can help you grow taller, is this true?
