How can I grow taller fast?? This is a question that I am asked a lot. In order to answer the question, I have to determine what fast means to you. Do you mean one week, one month, one year? There is no magic pill and like anything you want in life, it is going to take some work. But there are programs that will have you taller in 4 to 6 weeks if you follow the program. No matter what your age, sex, race you too can be taller. To understand how this is possible we need to learn the factors involved.
Height is determined by different factors including genetics and environment. While some factors cannot be changed, there are some areas you can focus on in order to grow taller quickly. Unfortunately, achieving your ideal height is a long-term process that could take months before effects are noticeable. And in this fast-paced lifestyle society lives in, time is a luxury not everyone can afford. Below are techniques you can try to grow taller in a fast and safe manner.
Understand Your Situation
Keep in mind that most of your height will be influenced by genetics. This means your parents’ or grandparents’ height will affect yours. Although, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your height is directly linked to theirs in that you’ll be short when they are or you’ll be a giant when they are. It does affect your odds, however. If both sides of the family are short, you are likely going to end up short as well.
Avoid Growth-Stopping Factors
Though some people call it myths, some factors like smoking and secondhand smoking, drinking alcohol, taking steroids, and weightlifting at a very young age can negatively affect your height. Drinking beverages with caffeine is another example of a growth-stopping factor, yet researches show that caffeine does not stop growth. However, it does affect the drinker’s sleep pattern. Deprivation of 8-10 hours of sleep can definitely impact height.
Get Adequate Rest
As mentioned earlier, rest affects growth. Children, teenagers, and young adults should be getting at least 8 hours of sleep per day to continue growing healthily. This is mainly because of the fact that the body develops and repairs tissue while the body is asleep. Cognitive functions are also repaired during sleep. This not only makes sleep a key factor for growing taller fast, but also for a sound body and mind. During sleep, human growth hormone is created naturally inside the body, a hormone that aids in growth. Getting adequate rest will stimulate production of the hormone, which is produced by the pituitary gland.
Make sure your body is well supplied with the nutrition it needs, will help you grow to your fullest potential. There is no better sign of this fact than looking at the country of North Korea. The people in that country are very malnourished and are a one to two feet shorter than their South Korean neighbors. If possible, consume vitamins and supplements created for your specific age group during morning meal. Also, try to add specific foods into your diet, such as:
• Green vegetables and dairy products for calcium
• Fish, mushrooms, and fish oil supplements for vitamin D
• Eggs, tofu, nuts, and meat for protein
• Oysters, peas, and chocolate for zinc
Modify your daily meals and eat small frequent meals throughout the day to make sure your body is powered up sufficiently. Strictly comply to your dietary plan until it becomes your permanent routine. Note that a fast and healthy metabolism produces more HGH.
By standing straight with your shoulders retracted and your neck aligned to your spine, you can instantly gain a few centimeters. Posture is also important when it comes to height. Not only does it increase height fast, it also keeps your spine healthy and undamaged from poor and unsafe postures.
