📏 The Secret To Growing Taller – by Dr Sam Robbins
I’ve gotten a lot of questions from guys, wanting to know IF or HOW they can grow taller.
The good news is that you CAN for sure get taller. I’ve done it a few times with people, especially family members.
However, the bad news is that what you’ll discover today, obviously won’t work for everyone, especially if you’re over the age of 25. But, even if you’re over 25 and want to get taller, keep watching because there are certain things you can do and that’ll still make an improvement at any age.
Plus at the end, I’ll show you 2 simple ways that can make you instantly look 2-3 inches taller. Things I’ve learned from some of my “shorter” friends.
What Causes Tallness and Shortness
So the first question is, why are some people tall and some are short?
However, genetics will always play a primary role in everything, as does your hormone levels
I don’t like to make things complicated or boring because there are lots of various hormones, enzymes, peptides and so forth which all play a role in height. However, the main hormones are Thyroid, Estrogens and Growth Hormone and IGF.
So, let me get right to it.
Why You’re Short
In boys, high estrogen levels accelerates the fusing of the bone and stops the growth plates from maturing.
Well, the “short and fat” part is from high estrogen. The “bald and hairy” is from high DHT (dihydrotestosterone). And when both of these hormones are elevated, testosterone levels drop.
Natural Ways To Optimize Your Hormones
Remember, you can’t change your genetics, but the correct life-style will maximize or minimize your genetic potential.
The first thing you must do is get quality, deep sleep every night. This is when the majority of your growth hormone is released. Most people, especially growing teenagers, don’t sleep enough.
Food – Protein
On average, people are taller these days, than they were a few decades ago. One reason is because we’re eating more food.
Because being malnourished, will for sure cause a decrease in growth.
However, you must eat GOOD, healthy foods and NOT eat bad foods. Because most people are eating junk, empty calories and thus, even though they’re eating more food, they are not getting enough nutrients — which is slowing your growth.
This means you need to eat a good amount of high, quality protein. Grass fed beef and bison, pasture raised chicken and whole eggs, wild caught salmon and similar foods.
I would limit dairy, because I don’t like it and I think milk is for babies and cow milk is for baby cows. Maybe small amounts of yogurt.
Make sure you stop eating junk protein like cold-cuts and pre-packaged foods and fast foods. They are horrible for your health and your growth.
Food – Carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are very important, especially for growth. You need insulin to grow and insulin + thyroid + growth hormone = maximum IGF levels, which causes the most growth.
Food – Fats
And let’s not forget about fats, they are super important. Fats help produce so many important hormones needed for growth – muscle, brain and bone. Unfortunately, most people either don’t have enough fats or they eat junky, unhealthy fats.
Stay Away From Drugs
Smoking, drinking and doing various drugs will not help you get taller and can decrease your potential for maximum height.
Exercise improves your hormones, which will help you get taller. And the less fat you are, the less estrogen your body produces and thus, the taller you can get.
Take Extra Supplements
I also suggest taking extra vitamins and minerals. Such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, a good b-complex formula, vitamin C and D are a good start.
Posture & Confidence
Finally, don’t forget about posture. Stand up straight, chest out, shoulders back and look straight. Don’t look down and slumped forward. Stand with confidence. You’ll for sure LOOK a couple inches taller.
You can also put “lifts” inside your shoes and wear boots or dress shoes, which have heals. The heal + the lift inside the shoe, will easily add at least 2-3 inches to you.
