Tips grow taller: Are you tired of being short? Dissatisfied with your height?

Are you dissatisfied with your height? 


Don't lose hope! Millions of people all over the world are depressed because they believe they are stuck with the height they were born with. Little do they know that learning how to grow tall isn't as hard as it looks.

How is this possible? It's simple. No matter how old you are, you can alter your appearance to make yourself taller in a variety of ways.

Before we begin discussing ways to how to grow tall, it's best to know how the body grows in the first place.

Did you know the number of bones in your body decreases as you grow? It's true! Studies show that healthy infants are born with 300 bones in the body. By the time they reach adulthood, that number has decreased to 206. How is this possible? The answer lies in one simple substance: Cartilage.

As our bodies grow, much of the cartilage in our bodies solidifies. Many of the miniscule bones we had as babies gradually merge together and harden.

Growth plates, otherwise known as epiphyseal plates, are sections of cartilage located on the ends of longer bones. As young people hit their growth spurts, these plates lengthen gradually, which results in dramatic changes in height.

This is why it's best to start as young as possible. By altering your diet so that it's rich in calcium, proteins, and amino acids, getting lots of sleep, exercising well, and maintaining good posture, you can not only significantly increase your height, but you will promote excellent bone health as well, thus preventing a decrease in height when you grow older.

If you are past the growth stage of your life, it's important to research how to grow tall. Be wary of scams that claim that doing certain stretching exercises will make you taller. This is simply not true-while stretching may help improve the condition of your muscles, they do absolutely nothing to stretch your bones. They are finished growing and no amount of exercise, herbal supplements, or hormone therapy can lengthen them.

However, there are still many methods that will make you appear taller. This includes wearing vertical stripes-not only do they make you seem taller, but they make you look thinner as well. And, of course, the type of shoes you wear also have an effect on your height.

If this sounds like you, there are a wide assortment of options for you to choose from. However, one option to avoid altogether are exercises that claim to be able to make taller yourself by stretching and lengthening your bones after you've hit puberty. This, frankly, is impossible to do, and anyone who claims otherwise is simply trying to scam you out of your money and waste your time.

Why doesn't this work? To understand this, first you must know how your bones grow. When we are infants, much of our bones consist of squishy, flexible cartilage. Much of this substance doesn't ossify into solid bone until we are much older. When we are going through puberty, growth plates on the ends of our longer bones lengthen gradually. Once they stop growing, however, there is nothing short of surgery that will make them grow again.

However, this doesn't mean that exercising is entirely useless. If you are still going through puberty, exercising regularly and doing stretches can help in lengthening your bones, as it releases height growth hormones. If you're no longer going through puberty, exercising to increase your muscle mass can also be beneficial. This results in your body looking thinner, which also helps in making your body taller.

Your diet can also be extremely effective when it comes to trying to make taller yourself. Eating foods rich in calcium, protein, calories, and amino acids not only help your body grow when you're young, but they can also make your bones strong, thus preventing weakened bones and shrinking bones when you're older.

Other methods that can make taller yourself is by how you dress. Wearing matching black shirts and pants can be slimming and help you look taller, whereas wearing dark pants with a pale shirt makes you look shorter by drawing attention to your waist. Similarly, having short hair makes your neck look longer, while having long hair makes it look shorter. Your shoes are also important-wearing something with a heel, be it sandals or boots, can increase your height. Wearing boots, clogs, and tennis shoes also makes your feet look bigger, which in turn makes your body taller.
