What Factors Make A Person High?
Good morning,. On this occasion I want to ask something important in my life. Most of my friends in my neighborhood have an average height of 170 cm and above while my height is below 165 cm. The question is what factors make a person tall like my friend, for example, is the influence of genes or other? Thank you
A person's height is closely related to genetic or height of his parents. But apart from genetics, a person's height is also influenced by several other factors such as gender, nutrition, and physical activity undertaken.
How old are you? In general, height will continue to increase until the epiphyseal plate / growth plate closes, usually around the age of 17-20 years. After the epiphyseal plate closes, height growth will stop.
To help maximize height, you can do the following tips:
Regular exercise, such as basketball, swimming, futsal, jumping rope, running Consumption of healthy and nutritious foods, especially those containing calcium, vitamin D, and zinc Get enough rest Avoid smoking and reducing caffeine Hopefully it can help you,
