Most people always concerned about their height. Well, this is the right article for that issue.

In this stage, your growth plate is still open, so, to let your body grow in maximum result, drink a lot of milk, at least 3 glasses of milk every day. Milk contains vitamins and minerals which is really does help you grow taller. It’s also contains calcium that can helps strengthens your bone, and thus can prevent your bone from stunted which is damage is the fact. Besides milk, foods that contain calories, nutrition, protein and amino acids also really helpful on growth process while puberty or even after puberty. But, mostly when puberty because in this stage, your growth plate still open.

2) Active in Sports.

By active in sports, you can stimulate you growth hormone release in maximum result. You can do different kinds of sports in your age which is football, baseball, martial-art, badminton, tennis and much more. If you have no friends to play, you can also being active by jogging, climbing, and cycling. I would suggest swimming. You must have seen so many swimmers who really have a good height with them right?

3) Get Enough Sleep

Most important is to get enough sleep, since you're in puberty age, you need at least 9 hours of sleep every night. Our body does most physically growth process while sleep. Lack of sleep can cause a person to be stunted. So, do not take this advice lightly.

After Puberty

At this stage, your growth plate has been close and your body technically was stopped growth. But, don't worry. Even our growth plate has been close, our body is still producing growth hormone, just slower than when puberty. Can you imagine what happen if we can increase our growth hormone producing level in this stage? You know the answer… Okay, so how to increase its level?

1) Exercise and Stretching

By doing exercise and stretching, you're not just stimulating your growth hormone, but you can improve your posture which is one of really works method to increase height. You can do so many things to improve your posture like Yoga, stretching, stand and sit in proper way and by doing certain exercises. You can also lengthen your spine to improve your posture, for example by doing neck exercise. The conclusion is you can increase your height up to 1 inch by following this method.

2) Foods

Best foods which can affect your growth are containing the essential vitamins and minerals like liver, eggs, red meat/meats, chicken and fish. For vegetables/fruits I would recommend yellow/green fruits/vegetables and kelp (it's a sea vegetable!). Diet also can help height growth since obese is one of the reason why our growth hormone releasing level decreased, so you need to minimal the amount of meat and chicken that you take on your menu.

3) Hanging On Bar

This method does not affect our growth hormone, but it proved can help increase height after puberty. Do this method often, I would suggest every day. When hanging on bar, gravity will pull our body down thus lengthening our spine. Some people claim that this method isn’t works. But, it works on me, so I guess maybe they didn’t do it continuously or choosing the wrong time to practice this method.

Being taller makes us feel more intimidating, confident, attractive, and even makes us seem thinner. By following these easy tips which is divided in two different situations, you'll grow at least 2 inch in 6-8 weeks depend on your body. Not, everyone is same because we all have our own genetic treat. It’s very satisfying when your friends, family and especially your lover realize on your height and start to talk about it.
