You might notice this peek consistent until puberty. Also secondary peak usually come’s at birth 4 Years. So it’s good to know at this golden momentum parent can give their children best nutrition.

How to Grow Taller Fast and naturally by consuming healthy food
It’s not myth guys. Eating healthy food will boost your HGH. The most influential our height depends on our control, That is the food that we consume everyday.
To make it clear, I’ll give you some fact in the world.
Why it can possible? The people living on both side are same ethnicity, speak same language and might had same taste in culinary.
The answer is simple, it’s because on their daily food to eat.
As we know North Korea is poorer than South Korea and of course the food resource also rarely. A Country when food resource is limited, it will effect on malnourished, it means lacks of HGH.
Actually there was 3 primary nutrient that very important to boost our Height. That is ‘Amino Acids’ , ‘Vitamin’ and ‘Minerals’. but for sake of simplistic and we don’t want to hurt you with boring biological instrument. We will discuss it in another post 😛
We understand you only need to know proper diet to boost height right? so Here we go
Calcium Milk is an excellent source for maintenance of strong bones and also acts as a height booster. Milk also has vitamin A and protein that helps build our cells. We recommended consumed skimmed milk because it’s free from fat and contains 100% protein. Drink it every morning and before sleep.
2.Fruits and Vegetables.
Not only increasing height, fruits and vegetables also play a crucial in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Oh yeah, please keep in note that not every fruit is suitable with milk.
So That’s why we recommended eating fruits 20 mins after drinking milk or at lunch is better. Since fruit is fresh and tasty especially in a hot days. Here’s fruit rich with vitamins and mineral that we recommended to help your height diet.
- Passion Fruit,
Different with vegetables you can add vegetables at any moments, its rarely has conflict with milk. Just make sure it well cooked and not contain bacteria. Here’s list a vegetable you need.
- Sweet potato
Don’t forget citrus fruits, berries, potatoes and tomatoes that had high of vitamin C contributes a lot in healthy growth of bones.
3. Chicken and Beef
Chicken is one of the most highest source proteins among in animal food. However we encourage to avoid chicken wings and giblets.
Because now days chicken industry using chemical to increase chicken fat, and usually they injection is in chicken wing. So Chicken Breast or drum stick will be great protein for you.
Beef is also an important source of protein but unfortunately it contains fat which is will increase your cholesterol level. Consume beef once a week will be great.
Pssst…. My Favorite beef dish is rendang, You’ve to try it 😀
You might already know this that eggs is rich of protein. But you’ve to know that only their white albumen has 100% Protein, you should reduce or avoid the yoke since it contains fat.
Eggs also has special vitamin B2, which is also known as riboflavin. In order to growth height , 3 to 6 eggs should be taken on your diet plan.
If you’re vegetarian but also like to grow taller naturally, then soybean is perfect for you. Since soybean is lord of highest proteins among all the vegetarian foods.
The pure protein in soybean will improve bone and tissue mass. 50 grams of soybeans everyday are recommended to boost our HGH.
FYI Oatmeal is splendid source of protein from plant. It helps increasing muscle mass and decreasing fat. So that’s why athlete or body builder consume oatmeal everyday. It’s advisable to eat around 50 grams oatmeal for breakfast everyday. (don’t forget to also drink skimmed milk at breakfast).
All of above foods should be consumed within healthy lifestyle and balanced diet. Even for vegetarians, there are always non-meat options available. So there’s certainly no excuse for skipping spinach, meal, milk, oatmeal in your diets.
As we said earlier “poor diet will prevent you to set goal growing height”.
