Increase The Height Of Teenage Boys Aged 16 Years?
hello, I’m 16 years old tb 161cm / bb 52kg, I want to have a height like my average height 170cm, how do I do it?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Several factors contribute to achieving maximum height potential. It is known that height is influenced by genetic factors of 60-80%, while the rest of 20-40% is influenced by environmental and nutritional factors. If the current growth of the body's maximum height may be caused by less than the maximum influence of the environment and nutrition.
There are several things you can do to get the maximum genetic potential, including:
1. Eat nutritiously
Consists of protein, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, milk products, and so on. Reduce consumption of sugar and saturated fat consumption.
2. Be wise in using supplements
Not all cases can be treated with hormonal supplements, because after the epiphyseal bone plate closes the chances of height increase are very small. Only cases of growth hormone deficiency can use hormonal supplements.
3. Get enough sleep
Enough hours of sleep during adolescence is needed to maximize growth. Teenagers need about 8-10 hours to sleep every day.
4. Actively exercising
Regular exercise is very good for strengthening bones and muscles.
5. Maintain good posture
Poor posture will make the body look shorter than it really is. Exercise can also improve good posture of the spine.
That's all, hope you can help
