In this article, I’ll try to explain everything in detail with which you can increase height naturally even after the age of 18.
3 Simple Tactics to Grow Tall After 18
One must focus on the following 3 things:
Before we go into the detail, let me clear one thing, please don’t expect a huge difference in your height. After 18 we can only increase 3 to 8 cm and not more than that. (Exceptions are always there)!
This is the basic and most important step in increasing your height. Malnutrition is the biggest factor which hinders your growth hormones. (1)
You have to eat healthy food. I advise you to add the following things to your diet for the best results.
- Protein Drinks
Now I will discuss some of the benefits of eating them in detail.
Milk, Butter, and Yogurt
These 3 are very beneficial for our bones. They contain a high amount of calcium which your bones require to grow taller. So drink milk and eat yogurt and butter daily for long-term benefits.
Fruits and Vegetables
They contain different types of vitamins which our body also need to grow tall. Fruits and vegetables not only help in increasing height but also help in getting fair skin. So you must add them to your daily diet.
Meat and Eggs
Meat and eggs both contain a high amount of protein which is also very beneficial for your body. Eating them also helps in getting strong muscles and you can also avoid hair loss problems.
If you go to the gym then you know the importance of them. Protein shakes give your body a huge boost to grow and to gain weight.
So, guys, these are the things which you have to add to your daily routine. Avoid eating junk foods like KFC, McDonald’s etc.
2. Exercise to Grow Tall After 18
There are different exercises to increase height but we will only discuss those which are proven and show quick results.
Hanging is the best exercise when it comes to increase the height. Gravity affects our height by compressing our spines and joints. Hanging is the only way to compress this problem.
So it is highly recommended that you hang daily 2 to 3 times for 5 to 10 minutes. Doing so relaxes your body muscles and stretches your spine or backbone.
Swimming is also a natural and most recommended way to increase height. When we swim, our body stretches continuously. This strengthens our body muscles and also increase the length of bones in a natural way, which ultimately increases our height.
As mentioned in the picture, you have to do this stretch like that. This exercise also stretches your spine which ultimately results in an increase in height. Do cobra stretch daily for 3 to 5 minutes. This helps you a lot to grow tall after 18.
Another very important factor to grow tall is proper sleep. According to studies, our body grows most when we sleep. (2)
According to doctors, taking daily 6 to 8 hours of sleep is very important for the proper functioning of the body. In this way, our body gets full opportunity to grow naturally. So do not take this step lightly as it is the crucial step and do not compromise on your sleep.
