Height Increase Tips

Wednesday, January 25, 2012
A 19-year-old girl complained of her height is "only" 150 cm. He wanted even higher, at least 160 cm, because he wanted to work in an agency that demands a certain height as a condition for entering.

Height 150 cm for the age of 19 years is somewhat less. But a lot of the women in Indonesia with so high. This high can still be expected to increase, especially at that age.


One thing that needs to be understood in advance that height is largely determined by genes. The results of a recent study (as reported by AFP on 2 September 2007) mentions that there are genes that determine the high-short person.

Gene called HMGA2. Changes in the "letters" basis in HMGA2's genetic code which is a C (abbreviated as cytosine) will affect a person's height. Someone who only get a C from one parent will be higher a half centimeter from which only has T (abbreviated from Thymin). Similarly, if someone has a double C will make them one centimeter higher than that having a double T.

There are still more genes related to height. HMGA2 explains only 0.3 percent of the diversity of human height.

Even so, it would not hurt you to try the tips below.


Like building a house, you certainly need a building material. So also with the body, requires adequate nutrition in order to grow optimally.

Height showed the nutritional quality of the person's current childhood first. If the quality of people's lack of nutrition in childhood first, these people tend to be short in adult life, and vice versa. Not intended arrogant, when a child until the age of 5 years I regularly consume milk and my height is now 187 cm!

Highly recommended to consume foods that contain lots of protein and calcium to help bone growth.


It is advisable to exercise that gives the load on the long bones of the foot, such as athletic, casual running, jumping rope (skipping), basketball, badminton and other similar sports. In this way, the bone is stimulated to grow a little longer because the buffeting weight. Swimming can also increase a person's height, but some are denied on the grounds that swim just to make it more proportionate body shape so that the body looks taller, but still the same height.

Other Alternatives

There are also supplements and other products on the market that promise instant height increase (eg by straightening the spine), but I do not recommend it because I did not have scientific data on these products, especially regarding the success rate and safety.
