Follow these natural ways to increase your height.
1) take protein-rich diet: we are all well aware that it is calcium that makes our bones strong. What a lot of us are not aware of is that the tissues in our bones are made up of proteins. This is the reason that a protein-rich diet is important for bones to grow properly and you to gain height. Some of the foods which have high content of proteins are fish, red meat, beans, seeds, tofu, milk, cheese, chicken and eggs.
2) fortify your immune system: a healthy lifestyle devoid of smoking, alcohol, drugs (unless prescribed), caffeine and steroids can assist in increasing health by strengthening the immune system.
3) get good sleep: seven to eight hours of sleep is the high is important for the human growth hormone which helps the body to grow taller, to be produced.
4) playing or exercising: running, dancing, sports like tennis, badminton, basketball & football, jogging, etc are high-impact exercises which help the bones in our bodies grow longer. Regular exercise can add a few centimeters to the height.
