Can It Get Taller At The Age Of 20 Years?
Want to ask how to increase height, I’m 20 years old male, what doctors have a recommendation for supplements or medicine for heightening? (Is that item in the pharmacy available) My height is 165cm, in 2016 until now my height is only fixed at 165, is there a natural way to increase height ???
Hello Michaelriando, thank you for asking on Aldookter.
Height increase in men will generally occur from the age of 11 years with a peak of growth is at the age of 13 years, and this growth will stop at the end of puberty, which is generally in men the end is at the age of about 16 years.
When it has passed puberty, as in your condition, height generally will not increase again because the bone growth plate has closed completely. The height you have reached now is possible because it is indeed your optimal height (calculated based on the height of your father and mother, can also be called a genetic factor) or can occur because of the nutrients needed to increase height at optimal times. not sufficiently well so that height does not reach an optimal number.
Although generally at your age your height will not increase anymore, you can try to do some natural things instead of using height enhancing supplements that can have side effects. These things are:
Eating foods that are nutritionally balanced and sufficient, and also pay attention to the intake of vitamin D where this vitamin is one of the important elements for bone growth
Get enough quality sleep (at least 8-10 hours a day)
If you still want to use the supplement, it is advisable to consult further with your doctor directly so that you can determine whether your condition allows or not use the supplementation and what supplements you should use. It is not recommended to use supplements that are not recommended by doctors.
I hope this helps.
