How To Grow Taller After Puberty


People naturally have always believed that human beings stopped growing after puberty; that is age sixteen for the girls and age nineteen for the boys.

Height increase after that time is nothing but a mere wish of those who are short.

However, research shows to grow taller from one to six inches after puberty or actually at whatever age.

Exercises That Can Help You How to Grow Taller

Many people have wondered how to grow taller using natural means. There are actually different exercises that can help you achieve this goal.

Most of these exercises involve stretching that helps lengthen your spinal column and build cartilage in some of your joints. One basic example is the Yoga exercises that are focused on lengthening and stretching your limbs to elongate your spinal column.

Here are some exercises that can help you how to grow taller if you desire to increase your height:

* Hanging vertically on a solid bar can help you to increase your height. The exercise is very simple, as you just have to hold your arms on a strong solid bar with your feet a few inches above the ground. Hold as long as you can. This type of exercise can elongate your spinal column.

* Doing some Pilates workout can also help to elongate your spine. For instance, the Pilates rollover is a wonderful way to stretch your spine and your upper body. To do this you just lay your back on the floor, arms on the side of your body with palms down on the floor. Extend your legs together up towards the ceiling, and then bend them slightly backwards to touch the floor.

* One of the easiest ways to increase in height is doing a standing vertical stretch. The exercise is too easy that anybody can do it. Just stand vertically, raise your arms and stretch your body for a few seconds to as high as you can.

If you are serious for growing taller by helpful exercises,I recommend you try the definitive program.

Foods That Can Help You How to Grow Taller

Aside from doing some exercises to help stretch your bones and muscles, you also have to eat protein-rich foods to help your body grow.

Protein-rich foods can provide your body nutrition in order to build your tissues and muscles, especially your bones. Milk, eggs, chicken, soybeans and beef are some examples of this type of food.

While taking this food to help you grow taller you should avoid foods that are rich in carbohydrates and fats as they can impede your growth and will just result to increase in body weight.
