Before we get into the discussion on the techniques which are prevalent to increase the height first letters understand it is even possible to grow your height and what are the major factors which determine a person’s height.
It is a scientifically proven fact that 62-85% of a person’s height is dependent on his or her genetics that is Genetics plays a very important role when it comes to a person’s height so if you are a person whose parents are taller than you might get a height to wish you desire but in case if parents are relative Lee less tall than in that case you may suffer from severe problems to get your desired height. Although it is the fact that 60% to 85% of your height depends on Genetics we cannot even deny the fact even that 15% to 40% of the height depends on other factors.
There are usually two important factors other than Genetics which important role-
Through a scientific and statistical study, it is been observed that a good amount of protein can increase your height positively. For example, after the war to the Japanese had access to more fish which increased the average height of the country by 3 inches? Not only in Japan but also in Denmark the same has been observed (because of high per capita income).
One of the major factors except nutrition and genetics is exercises. Exercises help individuals to stretch his or her muscle due to which an individual can even gain height up to reasonable inches.
So with the above factors and with their analysis, we can conclude that an individual can gain a reasonable amount of height even when Genetics is not in his favour.
People often do the mistake of consuming excess protein and ignoring other required nutrients like Iron, vitamin D and calcium.
So one should always aim and aspire to have a balanced diet.
Your diet should include
- Fresh fruits
- Fresh vegetables
- Whole grains
You should limit or avoid foods containing
- Tran’s fats

Other important nutrition-
Calcium –In case of any medical condition or older age, one is suffering low bone density then he or she should consume a good amount of calcium. It’s often recommended that women over age 50 and men over age 70 should consume 1,200 milligrams (mg) of calcium per day.
Vitamin D is also good for bone health. Common sources of vitamin D are tuna, fortified milk, and egg yolks. If you aren’t getting enough vitamin D in your diet, talk to your doctor about taking a supplement to meet your recommended daily amount.
