Are you wanting to know how to grow taller? Do you hate your height, and often times feel insecure and ‘short’? You see, contrary to popular belief, growing taller has nothing to do with age, but actually with a hormone called HGH the Human Growth Hormone. It is what is responsible for height growth during puberty, but can be stimulated any anytime in your life to make you grow taller. Here is how you can stimulate your HGH and finally get tall fast…
1. Posture- watching your stature and posture is the most simple way to get taller. Women especially should take note of this tip, since we often tend to slouch after puberty due to extra weight on our chest and insecurities about our breast growth.
2. Sleep without a pillow under your neck- This is a simple way to add inches to your height, however it is not so easy to do; but if you want this trick to be effective you should try to get at least 8 hours sleep every time you sleep.
3. Inversion tables- this will hang you by your feet, and stretch your body out. This should not be done excessively, but it does work, because it reverses the effects that gravity and everyday wear and tear have on your spine.
4. Pull ups- Likewise from hanging upside down, you can also hang upright and stretch your upper torso out. This is done by many bodybuilders daily; and when done properly will help increase your height, and can easily be done just by simply doing pull ups on a bar.
5. Yoga positions- HGH production is maximized when your mind is calm and your body has minimal stress. Yoga can help calm your mind and body, as well it helps your spine and posture efficiently to help growth
6. Sleep with a pillow underneath your knees- This should be done when sleeping on your back, and elevation of your legs in this manner will give the desired effects.
7. Sleeping positions-Also consider that sleeping positions such as laying on your back versus laying on your stomach or side will have a faster and more healthy results for your height gain. Sleeping in a curled position does not allow your body to stretch out, and only keeps the effects of strain and compression on your body indefinitely.
8. Diet with necessary nutrients- calcium helps with bone growth, and can be found in everyday foods, fruits or vegetables like milk, oranges etc. Proteins also help with growth and are important in your diet. Always ensure that you have the necessary daily intake of nutrients, vitamins etc so that you can achieve maximum growth.
9. Walking- a lot of women walk on high heels to gain height, and some people even walk on their toes. You must walk with your complete foot on the ground (heel to toe walking), if you want to gain height and also so you can keep a proper posture.
10. Drink lots of water- This is good for weight loss and weight management; it also naturally detoxifies your body. Eight or more cups a day should be your goal. Extra or unnecessary weight on your body can obviously make you look shorter than you actually are; and it also strains your skeletal system so that it compresses and actually can make you shorter; thus always try to maintain a healthy weight and an easy way to do this is by drinking a lot of water.
