Is It Safe To Take Enhancing Medication?
I want to elevate my body with exercise and balanced eating, and I was offered by my friend to consume body enhancing products …. Do you think that the medicine for heightening / growing up is safe to consume or not ??
Hello Veri, Thank you for the question.
Everyone has hopes to have the ideal height to support their appearance. Not infrequently, some people will be tempted by various products that promise height increase. You must be careful of the side effects of using these products especially if you do not know the content in them.
A person's height is greatly influenced by genetic / hereditary factors, good nutrition, adequate sleep, exercise habits, and a person's health condition. The maximum height each person can achieve depends on the height of both parents. The following are calculations of the estimated maximum height that can be achieved:
for women: (father's height -12.7 cm + mother's height) divided by 2
for men: (father's height + 12.7 cm + mother's height) divided by 2
What you need to know is that increasing your height is only effective if it is done while you are still in its infancy. In men, the acceleration of the growth period (growth spurt) starts at the age of 11 years and reaches a peak at the age of 13 years while in women, starts at the age of 9-10 years and ends at the age of 11-12 years. The acceleration of this growth period will end at puberty (in men aged 16 years and in women ages 14-15 years or 2-3 years after the first menstruation). Thus, if you have passed the age limit, height gain is difficult to achieve. However, you do not need to be discouraged. You can still make efforts to increase height by maintaining a complete and balanced nutritional intake (including food sources that contain vitamin D), doing sports that can increase height (jumping rope, swimming, cycling, yoga, playing tennis or basketball), and get enough rest for 6-8 hours per day. If you want to take height enhancing supplements, please pay attention to whether the supplements are registered with BPOM to ensure their safety and make sure you consult with your doctor directly before using them.
Hopefully this information helps you.
