I. Tips to grow taller for you!
There are some specific methods that can help you to grow taller at the age of 16.
check these helpful methods to grow taller naturally:
Getting a full night's sleep every day is one of the best natural ways to grow taller..
Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night and take whatever steps you need to ensure that your
sleep is uninterrupted as much as possible.
You should also know that the first 2 hours of sleep are when the most growth hormone is
released into your system from your pituitary gland. If you will not sleep enough that can lower
the amount of growth hormone your body produces, which is very bad for you.
You need to eat the right foods
It's very recommended to choose foods that are rich in proteins.
milk, fish, eggs, and lean meat are all forms of good protein.
another recommended foods are foods that have plenty of amino acids and vitamins.
On the other hand you must know about some of the biggest threats to your growth potential:
caffeine, junk food and refined sugar.
Daily physical exercise is also an important part of growing. Swimming for example can help a
lot to increase your growth potential.
In the water you have less gravity and that means more open bone areas for your body to fill
them with new bone tissue. The free motion of swimming is very light on your body and greatly
releases stress, which can prevent your body from growing. Try to swim about 3-4 times a week
if you can.

Method 1 : To Become Taller
1.Consume a balanced diet. A person will look a lot shorter when having a plump body. Not only
that, being fit by eating right will make you taller and feel better!
o Eat plenty of lean protein. Lean protein, such as white poultry meat, fish, soy, and dairy,
helps promote muscle growth and healthy bones. Simple carbohydrates such as pizza,
cakes, sweets, and soda, are the stuff to stay away from.
o Eat plenty of calcium. Calcium, found in leafy green vegetables such as spinach and kale,
and in dairy (yogurt and milk), helps promote healthy bones.
o Get enough zinc. Studies, although they have been inconclusive so far, point to a
possible link between zinc deficiencies and stunted growth in boys. Good sources of
zinc include oysters, wheat germ, pumpkin and squash seeds, lamb, peanuts, and crab. 
o Get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D promotes bone and muscle growth in children, and a
deficiency has been shown to stunt growth and cause weight gain in teenage girls.
Vitamin D can be found in fish, alfalfa, or mushrooms commonly.

Exercise throughout the teen years and in puberty to improve your height modestly. Do
jumping exercises frequently, such as skipping, dancing and even hanging . Be active. Get out
and about and work your muscles for at least 30 minutes each day.
o Join a gym. Joining a gym will help give you access to a lot of great exercising and
muscle-building machines. It will also keep you motivated to work out (you'll feel silly if
you're not exercising in the gym).
o Join a sports team. People who join sports teams can use their natural competitiveness
to burn extra calories and hopefully get their bodies taller. The great thing about team
sports is that half the time, you don't even realize that you're exercising.
o If nothing else, walk around. If you can't find the time to do anything else, get up and
walk around. Walk to the grocery store. Walk to the library. Walk to school.

Get adequate sleep each night. Sleeping is the time when your body grows, so having plenty of
sleep is equivalent to giving your body more time for growth. Get between 9 and 11 hours of
sleep per night if you're a preteen or still younger than 20.
o The human growth hormone (HGH) is produced naturally in our bodies, especially
during deep or slow wave sleep. Getting good, sound sleep will encourage the
production of HGH, which is created in the pituitary gland.

Understand that a majority of your height will be predetermined by genetics. Scientists reckon
that 60% to 80% of your height is determined by genes. Unfortunately, either you have the tall
gene or you don't. That's not to say that you can't grow tall if you have parents who are on the
shorter side; it just means that having shorter parents means you're more likely to be on the

5 Try not to stunt your growth. There might not be a lot you can do to increase your height, but
you can take several steps to make sure your natural height isn't shortened by environmental
influences. Drugs and alcohol are both thought to contribute to stunted growth if they're
ingested while you're young, and malnutrition can keep you from reaching your full height, as
o Does caffeine really stunt your growth? Scientific study shows that, no, caffeine does not
stunt growth. Caffeine does, however, have a higher chance of keeping you from
sleeping soundly and regularly. Kids and adolescents needs about 9-10 hours of sleep,
and caffeine may hurt your ability to get that much sleep.
o Does smoking really stunt your growth? The effects of smoking and second-hand smoke
on body mass index (BMI) are inconclusive. According to Columbia University's Internet
Health Resource, "Although the studies that have been done are largely inconclusive,
the available research suggests that children who smoke or who are exposed to second-hand
smoke are shorter than those who do not smoke or are children of non-smokers."[

o Do steroids really stunt your growth? Absolutely. Anabolic steroids inhibit bone growth
in young children and teens, along with lowering sperm count, decreasing breast size,
elevating blood pressure and putting you at higher risk of heart attack.  Children and
teens who suffer from asthma and use inhalers that dispense small doses of the steroid
budesonide are, on average, half an inch shorter than those not treated with steroids. 
6. Expect to be in your twenties when you stop growing. A lot of young kids look at themselves
and ask, "Have I finished growing yet?" If you're under 18, the answer is probably "No!" If you
haven't stopped puberty yet, then you haven't stopped growing. Try to be thankful that you
have a little time to grow taller instead of worrying about how tall you will be.
