6 easy ways for teenagers to increase their height
In a teenager, the increase in height depends on several factors. These factors if properly understood and implemented in the right way can help you grow tall.
Like everyone knows how genetics play a major role in increasing your height. This factor is nothing but the genetics that you inherit from your parents. If your parents are tall then you will also become tall and vice-versa. When your body releases HGH (Human Growth Hormone) your height increases.
For example, if your parent’s height is 5’4 inch then you have the potential of raising your height to 5’10 inch. Genetics analyzes the potential of how much you can increase your height. So even if your parents lack height you can still get a great height due to the high release of HGH.
Nutrition and diet play a major role in increasing height for teenagers. Nutrition provides energy for performing our daily activities. The specific nutrients that should be added up in your diet to increase height includes
- Calcium – We can get calcium from all dairy products, which helps in increasing bone density and elongation of bones.
- Vitamin D – Sunlight is the cheapest source of Vitamin D. Perform more activities outside of your hour or it will be better if you are into outdoor sports.
- Magnesium and Zinc – Magnesium, and Zinc are found in almost all green vegetables, incorporate them into salads and consume them regularly.
- Protein – Helps in muscle strength and muscle recovery. Protein-rich vegetarian foods include soya beans, chana, almost all types of lentils. Protein-rich non-vegetarian foods include chicken, egg white, fish, and mutton.
3. Physical activity
If you are not being able to reach your genetic height potential then lack of physical activities is the sole reason. Being a teenager you should be indulged in outdoor sports like basketball, swimming to achieve your serious height goals.
You can include certain physical activities such as jumping, running, stretching, and other exercises to become tall. Because performing these exercises not only loosens your muscles for easy growth but also increases the release of HGH.
Sleep is another great factor for increasing height in teenagers. But this the factor that most youths neglect. The youth generation has a habit of staying awake till late at night. This disturbs your sleep routine whatsoever.
A detailed article has been provided on how to get sound sleep if you are experiencing sleep problems. We at least need 8 hours of sleep every day. The phase when you are in deep sleep, the anterior pituitary gland releases the HGH, which increases your height. So the more you sleep the more the chances of you becoming tall increases.
5. Ashwagandha and camel milk
