Imagine if you could eat foods that contain the most powerful nutrients for height growth.
Or even better:
What if you could eat 20 of these foods…
And each of them makes you taller day by day?
Lucky for you, that’s exactly what I’m about to reveal in this post:
20 best foods for increasing your height.
The best part?
All of these height increasing foods are completely dairy-free, and are natural foods that you can easily buy at your local grocery store.
The ONE Biochemical You Need to Grow Taller…
Before we dive into the 20 foods, you need to know the one ingredient that is essential for growing taller.
Is it Calcium? Nope.
Is it Vitamin D? Nope.
Is it Magnesium? Vitamin C? Protein???
Although all of the above nutrients are important for growing taller, there is one biochemical in your body that is more important for height growth than ANYTHING…
Human Growth Hormone!
A. K. A. HGH is the most important biochemical that your body produces naturally in order to not only make you taller, but it is vital for the growth of every cell in your body.
It is also crucial in allowing your tissues and organs to maintain their optimal function.
HGH levels naturally decrease as you age, so you must do a good job of keeping your HGH levels high as you grow older.
Keep in mind that no foods directly contain HGH; they merely cause your body to secrete more HGH naturally.
I won’t get too deeply into the science of why this biochemical is so important… but just know that you must maintain sufficient levels of HGH in your body, if you want to maximize your height.
Here are a few foods that boosts your HGH levels:
Pineapple helps your body produce more melatonin at night, helping you sleep better. When you get better sleep, you produce more HGH naturally.
It is also beneficial for your digestive processes.
2. Grassfed Beef
Beef that has been grassfed provides a wide variance of amino acids, which are vital for maintaining strong bones. We’ll get more in depth on what you can consume to build stronger bones.
3. Coconut Oil
Surprisingly, consuming healthy fats such as coconut oil helps your body burn fat. Consume fat to lose fat, how ironic!
4. Raw Chocolate
Chocolate stimulates the pituitary gland, to produce more HGH and dopamine.
It is also a very rich source of the amino acid, tryptophan.
Raisons contain the amino acid L-Arginine, which also elevate HGH levels.
If you eat these foods on a regular basis, your HGH levels will increase, hence help you grow much taller.
3 Micronutrients for Maximal Height Growth
Besides increasing your HGH, you must fuel your body with the right nutrients to grow your bones.
So what are the right nutrients?
There are 3 micronutrients that are essential for bone growth.
Let’s dive into each, one by one:
Micronutrient #1: Calcium
Calcium is an essential micronutrient that is responsible for building, lengthening, and maintaining the structure of your bones, which is ultimately the main mechanism that allows you to grow taller.
Here are 5 foods you can consume to increase your Calcium intake:
Salmon is a rich source of protein and two variations of omega 3 fatty acids: DHA and EPA. They help with your brain development, and also support your body in preventing heart disease.
Oatmeal is rich in soluble and insoluble fiber; soluble fiber helps to lower your body’s cholesterol, and stabilize your blood glucose levels.
If you didn’t already, fiber also helps you poo!
8. White beans
White beans are great sources of iron, which is a vital nutrient in the production of red blood cells and hemoglobin. These cells supply your entire body with oxygen.
Tofu is another great source of protein. In fact, it contains all eight essential amino acids.
It is also an excellent source of iron.
10. Oranges / Orange Juice
As you probably know, oranges and other citrus fruits are rich in Vitamin C, which is essential for the growth and develop of every tissue in your body.
Consuming lots of Vitamin C also promotes skin health.
Micronutrient #2: Vitamin D
Similarly to Calcium, Vitamin D maintains the health and functionality of your bones, which is crucial if you want to grow taller.
It also brings other benefits, such as protecting your body against many diseases and conditions, such as cancer, high blood pressure, type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, etc.
Also keep in mind that many foods that are high in Vitamin D are usually high in Calcium, and vice versa.
Here are 5 foods that are rich in Vitamin D:
Eggs are rich in Vitamin A, which is also essential for bone growth. Vitamin A is also beneficial to your eye health.
Tuna is another rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, which reduces omega 6 fatty acids and cholesterol in your blood vessels, thus, optimizing the health of your cardiovascular system.
Mushrooms contain Alpha- and Beta-glucans, which are very beneficial to your immune system.
They also contain unique antioxidants that you cannot find in other foods, such as ergothioneine, which protects your DNA from oxidative damage.
14. Soy Milk
Soy contains high quality protein.
It is also a rich source of Vitamin B12, which helps to keep your red blood cells healthy along with iron.
15. Cod Liver Oil
Liver oil is one of the best sources of the Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.
It is also another rich source of vitamin A.
You probably already know this, but sunlight is by far the best natural source of Vitamin D.
Aim to get at least 20 minutes of direct sunlight every single day to receive a sufficient amount of organic Vitamin D in through your skin.
Make sure to do this before or after the peak hours of 12 ~ 4pm, especially in the summer! The last thing you want to get in skin cancer from trying to grow taller.
Through the windows doesn’t count; go outside!
Micronutrient #3: Magnesium
Magnesium helps the body to process Calcium and Vitamin D, which is necessary for your body to build and lengthen your bones for height growth.
Another very useful benefit of Magnesium is that it helps to prevent Osteoporosis, a bone disease that can be lethal to your ability to grow taller.
Here are 5 foods that boosts your Magnesium levels:
Bananas are arguably the best source of Potassium. The main benefits of Potassium are enhanced metabolism, muscle strength, and decreased risk of heart and kidney disorders.
Almonds are also rich in Potassium, iron, and Vitamin E. This Vitamin protects your body against diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and harmful toxins such as air pollution.
18. Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of Zinc, which boosts your immune system, promotes cell growth and division, and improves the quality of your sleep.
Avocado is another source of healthy fats. it lowers the levels of bad Cholesterol (LDL) in your body, and helps to fight of Osteoarthritis, which is another bone disease that is lethal to your height growth.
Spinach, and other dark leafy greens are rich in Vitamin K, which is another Vitamin that is important for your bone health.
It is also rich in Iron and Zinc.
3 Other Factors to Nail
Above are 20 of the foods that you want to consume in order to maximize your growth.
However, it’s not necessary for you to eat all of the listed foods above for you to grow taller.
The main thing that you want to take away is the importance of keeping your HGH levels elevated, and consuming enough of the 3 vital micronutrients for height growth.
Now, there are a few additional factors that you want to stay mindful of, if you want to maximize the benefits that you gain from consuming these foods.
Factor #1: Eat Enough and Frequently
Eating a sufficient amount of food on a daily basis is critical if you want your body to grow as tall as you want it to.
Your body needs a constant fuel of nutrients in order to be able to repair and build tissues that allow you to grow taller.
If at any point, your body is deprived of these vital nutrients, you are significantly hindering your potential for maximum growth.
Factor #2: Don’t Over-Consume Anything
On the flip side, you sure don’t want to go to the other end of the extreme, and stuff yourself with the foods that I laid out on this post.
While it’s necessary for you to consume enough of these calories, maintaining your health is just as crucial for you to maximize your height, because when your health is off balance, your body won’t be functioning properly.
This will cause your cells and tissues to grow at a sub-optimal speed, which will inevitably lead to you growing less in the long run.
Factor #3: Drink Enough Water
Your body is composed of about 75% ~ 80% water, so it is absolutely essential for you to consume enough of it for your cells and tissues to be able to regenerate and grow properly.
A typical person will need to drink around 2L of water per day. However, you may need to drink more if you live an active lifestyle.
