Many of us say and believe that we stop growing at the age of 18. But in case you didn’t know, you can grow a couple of inches more after that age.
This can be done easily, by introducing a few healthy habits in your life and changing your lifestyle for the better. Even though physical growth stops to a certain extent when you enter your adulthood, your body still has the ability to respond and produce the hormones that are needed for that.
It can be very beneficial for individuals that are short, to be able to grow from two to six inches taller. The body produces a hormone, which plays a role that is extremely important in the determination of your height. It is called HGH, or the Human Growth Hormone.
There are a couple of ways by which you can increase your height if you follow just a few simple steps. The efforts that you are going to make in order to increase your height, can be divided into 3 broad categories:
Carbs will give you energy, and proteins will build your body. They act like a concrete to a construction. Proteins will facilitate the building rocks for fuller growth. Poultry and meat are packed with proteins. In case if you are vegetarian, you need to eat lots of legumes in order to get proteins.
When it comes to bone health, calcium is the key. It will promote bone health, but it will also aid fuller growth. You need to check the levels of calcium in your body, and if they are low, you need to increase the intake of calcium. Foods that contain calcium are dark green vegetables and dairy foods. Introduce these foods to your diet and you will feel much better and stronger.
Exercises like skipping rope, chin-ups. Swimming, hanging exercises, and stretches are a good way to increase your height. Yoga exercises like the mountain pose and forehead to knee pose are also known to encourage the growth of height.
The body will regenerate and repair tissues when you are taking a rest. What this means is that the damaged tissues and cells are getting repaired when you sleep, but the process of reparation is further improved when you have an adequate sleep. The human body produces HGH without difficulties during the undisturbed sleep. In order to encourage the production of HGH, a sleep of high quality is essential.
