Let me start by saying that I have been considered short most of my childhood and my height seemed to peak at around 16 or 17 and my height ended up to be around 5 foot 7 inches tall by the time I was 20. I was really unhappy about my height and was prepared to do anything to be even an inch taller if it was possible. I started doing all the research I could online, talking with similar people suffering from the same problem online and eventually I began to learn growing taller after puberty was entirely possible and that many people were already doing it and talking about their results online. I grew extremely excited and began a quest of what I needed to do to increase my height. It’s been around 2 years later after starting my height increase regimen I am extremely satisfied with the results I am seeing.
Today I am 24 and my current height is 5’10 (5 foot 10 inches) without shoes. To many people this may seem unbelievable that I have grown an extra 3 inches but I am living proof that it’s real. This didn’t happen overnight, it was on a gradual basis after a lot of hard work and dedication but the rewards are well worth it. I have to say that I feel undeniably more self-confident after gaining an extra 3 inches and it has shown in all aspects of my life.
So you want to be taller too and are willing to put in the effort to make it happen?
Well, basically it boils down to doing three things:
1. Eating the right foods
2. Doing the right stretches
3. Taking the right supplements
I am going to go into basic detail with each one to set you on the right track and do more research yourself.
1. Doing the right stretches
There are a lot of exercises and stretches people recommend for increasing your height, and you should definitely do your own research online and learn about them all to find out which ones are best suited for you. Generally I would say stay away from exercises involving attaching weights to your legs and stretching out your limbs, even though people have reported success with it. I am going to go over a few basic stretches with you to get you started, and hopefully you will get into it get enough motivation to do your own extended research.
One of the best exercises you can do to help add to your height begins with you lying down on the floor facing the ceiling. The best idea here is to look at a single point on the ceiling and focus on it, while your body is resting comfortably, straight out on the floor. Now you want to stretch your left foot towards the right and your right foot towards the left, without moving your legs. Remember not to push too hard and to not push past the point of a light tightening sensation in your muscles. Now you want to stretch the right foot towards the right and the left towards the left. Again remember
not to move your legs and to not push too hard because then you risk straining or pulling a muscle.
Another of the most effective stretching exercises to increase height involves you lying down on your stomach, and then you want to put your palms down on the floor near your hips. Bend your legs at the knee and raise your legs upwards, now keeping your thighs on the floor you want to push your hands backwards and try to catch your legs. Do not stretch too much and relax after this, then repeat.
Another easy exercise to help increase height begins with you standing behind a chair. Hold the backrest of the chair and then push your right leg backwards. Keep your spine as straight as you can and then stretch the leg as much as possible without pushing it too far of course. Come back to the resting position and repeat the exercise with the other leg. You can then go back to the first leg and repeat several times.
Stretching exercises to increase height, if performed properly and on a regular basis, will be able to add height to your stature and give you better posture overall. You will stand straighter and feel better and these are definitely stretching exercises that you want to include in your existing routine for the rest of your life.
2. Eating the right foods
In order to grow taller naturally, your body need proteins, vitamins and minerals more readily than carbohydrates and fats. Proteins are composed of one or more chains of amino acids. They are fundamental components of all living cells and include many substances, such as enzymes, growth hormones, and antibodies that are necessary for the proper functioning of an organism. They are essential in the diet of animals for the growth and repair of tissue and thus you should ingest large amount of protein if you want to grow taller.
The best kinds of foods for complete proteins (those that contain the most appropriate distribution of amino acids for growth hormones) are fish, eggs, milk, and legumes. These foods contain most of the 20 amino acids, including the 8 essential amino acids that are not synthesized by your body. Therefore, replace rice, bread, and hamburger with fish, eggs, and skim milk.
The most important mineral is calcium. Be aware that some common foods and drinks can act as calcium inhibitors and stunt growth. Those calcium inhibitors include coffee, soft drinks refined sugar, concentrated sweetener, excessive salt, excessive fats, alcohol, and cigarettes. Stop or reduce the consumption of these foods and drinks if you want to grow taller.
Therefore, the correct regular diet for you to grow taller naturally should be mainly consisted of protein rich food such as fish, unsaturated meat, eggs, milk, and legumes; vitamin rich food such as fruits, vegetables, and animal liver; mineral rich food such as milk, dairy products and seafood
3. Taking the right supplements
If you are looking for height increasing supplements and so-called HGH supplements, I advice you to stay away from most of them. Most of these products are scam products that contains nothing but L-Arginine. Some of these websites trick people into paying $100 for a bottle of L-Arginine that costs $5 simply because they call it a “Grow Taller Pill” or “Height Booster Pill”.
Before you buy any type of “height increasing” or “grow taller” supplement, look at the ingredients. If they don’t list the ingredients in plain site on their website then they have something to hide and are probably selling plain L-Arginine pills under false marketing. Any height enhancer supplement or HGH supplement you buy should contain all of these ingredients:
These ingredients act as powerful HGH (Human Growth Hormone) releases in the human body and also play important roles building in muscles, tissues, and structural integrity. taking L-Arginine alone will have little to no affect on your body related to height.
So there you have it, the secrets to growing taller! All I can say that is if you really want it, you can definitely increase your height and become taller! Good Luck![ad_2]
