You don't have to settle with your current height. Here are several tips on how to grow taller.

In order to understand why they're effective, it's important to learn how we grow in the first place. When we are babies, we have many more bones than we do as adults. Why is this? This is mostly because, as babies, some of our bones are made of cartilage. As we grow, this cartilage warps and melds and hardens to form adult bones. During puberty, cartilage growth plates located at the ends of our longer bones start to lengthen slowly. This is what contributes to the wild growth spurts we experience.

Knowing that, here are some helpful methods to increase height:

1. Exercise

When you are experiencing puberty, exercising is one of the most important things you can do for your body. Not only does it release helpful height growth hormones, but it also keeps your bones healthy and strong. By exercising regularly during puberty, you can make the most of your growth spurts.

Exercising when you're an adult is also very helpful. It keeps you from gaining weight, which can put additional stress on your bones. Being slender also aids in creating the illusion that you're taller. However, it's impossible to lengthen your bones through stretches and exercises after they've finished growing.

2. Diet.

Your diet has one of the biggest effects on your bones and your height. Did you know that not getting enough nutrients when you're young can result in stunted growth? It's true! Calcium in particular is very important for healthy, growing bones. Foods that are rich in protein, amino acids, calories, and other nutrients help give your body what it needs to have enough energy and stamina. It also aids in replenishing your body when it needs it. Depriving yourself of these essential nutrients, however, can result in stunted growth and other health complications.

3. Wardrobe

If you're an adult and wish you were taller, there are several ways you can alter your appearance to make yourself look taller. You can do this by dressing in dark, solid colors or pinstripes. Wearing shoes with heels or height enhancing insoles may sound like an obvious solution, but it works. Wearing bigger shoes, such as boots or tennis shoes, can make your feet look bigger, which helps the illusion. 

4. Exercise

The topic of exercise and growing taller can sometimes be an iffy one. If you're an adult and past the stage where your body is growing, there is no way to lengthen your bones with stretches or exercises. This is impossible because your bones are finished growing. The only way to lengthen them involves painful and risky surgery.

However, exercising while you're young can be hugely beneficial. It releases height growth hormones that help in enhancing your growth spurts. It also ensures that your bones are healthy and strong.

Exercising as an adult does have its merits, however. Keeping your body and bones strong and flexible can help keep you taller when you're much older. Combined with a healthy diet, you can keep your bones healthy for years to come. However, neglecting your body can result in weakened bones, breakage, and even shrinking. Treating your body well can prevent these things from happening, including diseases such as osteoporosis.

5. Clothing

Believe it or not, you can significantly change how tall you look simply by changing how you dress. Do you like pinstripes? You're in luck! Whether you choose a pinstriped suit or simply wear vertical striped stockings, you are doing wonders to make your body and limbs look much taller and longer. Dark, solid colors also help greatly. However, try not to wear two toned outfits, such as a dark shirt with pale pants. This draws attention to your waist, which makes you look shorter. Avoid patterns such as plaid or polka dots as well.
