Do not lose hope. If you have been short all your life, and you have tried everything with no results, these tips may just help you. These valuable tips will help you grow taller naturally. This means it will be safe for you while you also improve your overall health as well.
These tips will be better understood if we understand some concepts related to our bodies and bones, and how these grow. Your bones now are greater in number than when you were an infant. During the early years, your bones consisted of a substance called cartilage. As one grows throughout the years, the cartilages will fuse into solid bones. At adolescence, the process will continue on and the growth plates will continue to lengthen.
There are a lot of advertisements claiming a lot of things–one of these are exercises that promises to make you taller by stretching your bones. How is this possible? Once your bones have grown at full potential, there is no way for these to be lengthened some more. Organizations that claim to make this happen are producing hype. They are selling hype and it will be better if you stay away from these organizations. Also, there are hormone supplements out there that also claim to make you taller. Same promises, same hype–no results to be expected from these.
One must however keep in mind that all these will not mean that exercises will become irrelevant. When doing regular exercises and incorporating stretching exercises for that matter will help one grow faster. This is important during the years where there are growth spurts. Once the stage wherein the bones have finished growing, don’t expect these exercises to be effective in making you grow taller. What it can do however is make you look slender and more muscular. With more muscles, you will be more confident.
Supplementing regular workouts with height enhancing clothing is a wonderful way to get taller naturally. Wearing dark, solid colors or pinstripes makes your legs and arms seem taller, while adding big shoes such as boots or clogs helps your feet look bigger, subsequently making you taller. Your posture is also important, not only will it make you look taller, but it is better for your back, neck, and feet as well.
