Being taller has advantages including greater social status. While your height is dependent on your genetics, there are ways you can increase the height of your children. Once you have stopped growing and your growth plates have fused, there isn’t much you can do to get taller.
For children and teens, increasing the Human Growth Hormone (HGH) can make them taller. There are foods that you can eat that will help stimulate the body’s production of HGH.
The most important steps are to eat a variety of healthy food, avoid sugar, and keep weight at proper levels.
So… what foods will boost HGH?
Before bed, snack on pineapple. It contains serotonin, a hormone that is synthesized into melatonin. Melatonin helps you sleep better and your body produces more HGH.
Other melatonin rich foods include tart cherries, peanuts, corn, asparagus, tomatoes, grapes, pomegranate, olives, broccoli, cucumber, rice, barley, rolled oats, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and flaxseed.
These foods are also good for you. Just remember that nuts are high in healthy fats and calories, so don’t go overboard or you will grow out as well as up.
