​We are going to be taller in the morning than night!

Friday - November 29, 2019 4:43 pm , Category : Fun Facts


WTN- Have you measure yourself in the morning, then again at night. You will be surprise to see change in your height as taller in the morning than you are in the evening! The reason because of how the cartilage in your bones compresses during the day.

All these variation is height is very nominal and ranges on average to 1 cm. This variation in height is because during normal activities during the day the cartilage in our knees and other areas slowly compress, but when you go to sleep and rest the cartilage goes back to normal. So on average a person is nearly 1cm taller in the morning time than in the evening.

Again gravity plays a major role in this body mechanism also apart from cartilage compression. In fact, gravity also flattens the materials between vertebrae of our spinal cord and pushes out the water between our spinal discs while we are standing. This can make us lose a centimeter of our respective heights. And, as we are sleeping, the body is in a horizontal position, so it is not affected by the gravity.- Window To News
