If you want to grow taller naturally, then you also need to ensure that you give your body all the foods and nutrients that it needs along the way. More importantly, you also need to make sure that you supply your body with not just any foods and nutrients, but the right ones. Unfortunately, the food that you eat every day may not include everything that is required. Hence, you need to know what the best sources of food are and how many of these nutrients you need to successfully increase your height. Two essential nutrients that are needed to grow taller naturally are proteins and vitamins. We’ll first look at why proteins are so important and what their best food sources are.
If you want to grow taller naturally, it is recommended that you follow a diet that is rich in proteins. In a way, we need a very similar diet to the one of bodybuilders and athletes. They, too, need to eat a lot of foods that are rich in proteins. The reason for that is that your body needs proteins to continuously build muscles, tissues and strengthen your bones. Whereas bodybuilders and athletes mostly eat it for their muscles, we eat proteins for our tissues and bones. The good news is, though, that there are a lot of different kinds of foods that are rich in proteins. I highly encourage you to try to intake enough proteins naturally, first, before you look into supplements. With naturally I mean that you concentrate on a good diet that consists of the right foods only. Anyways, some of the recommended sources of proteins are poultry, meat, nuts, eggs, fish and different dairy products. These are the kinds of foods that are already very popular in our culture, anyways. Hence, you can cook really delicious meals that go perfectly well with a protein-rich diet that can help you to increase your height.
As already mentioned above, aside from proteins you also need vitamins. The most important vitamins for our purpose of growing taller are Vitamin B2, Vitamin A and also Vitamin D. Of course, they can also be found in different foods, just like proteins. Dairy products that consist of milk and eggs are the best sources for Vitamin B2. On the other hand, Vitamin A is to be found in different vegetables, namely green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, turnips, carrots and even tomatoes. For Vitamin D, you should eat salt water fish. They are also called oily fish because they are the best sources of unsaturated fats and Omega 3.
One last thing: since these nutrients are so important for your bones, I should also mention calcium, which is another very important nutrient for your bones. Calcium is the main nutrient that builds and strengthens bones, keeping them healthy. The good news is that a lot of the foods that provide you with proteins and vitamins also bring in enough calcium. Some of these foods are milk, green leafy vegetables and eggs
