Height is a very important determinant in the overall personality of an individual. Short statured people often lack confidence and may face various obstacles due to it. A person’s height is predominantly decided by his genetics and environment.
The Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in our body regulates our height. With genetics beyond our control, intake of food and drinks assisting the HGH function can help us increase our height rapidly. Today the market is flushed with products and health drinks promising height increase but their results are debatable.
Given below are some tried and tested drinks to rapidly increase your height:-
Calcium is not only vital for growth and strong bones but it also works as a height booster. Apart from being abundant in calcium, milk is also a rich source of proteins and vitamins which assist in increasing our height Vitamin A arrests calcium loss from our body and proteins are essential in building new cells. Milk is easily digestible and facilitates optimum assimilation of proteins. For effective height increase, drinking about three glasses of milk on daily basis is recommended.
Going by Ayurveda, Ashwagandha or Withania somnifera can indirectly influence the HGH thereby inducing significant growth in height. Its powder is readily available in the market or you can use the Ashwagandha roots to make the powder at home. About two tablespoons of it is mixed with a glass of warm cow’s milk along with sugar or jaggery to taste. This health drink should be consumed without fail for atleast 45 days, before going to bed, for best results. Children dosage is 1 teaspoon. During this period, fast food should be avoided completely. It should also not be taken on an empty stomach; if suffering from cough and cold; if pregnant or taking any antacids.
Water is the best panacea for all body related issues. Drinking a minimum of two liters of water in small proportions throughout the day removes all toxins from the body, improves your metabolism system and help in increasing height. For best results, it is advisable not to drink water for thirty minutes before meal and atleast for an hour after meals.
Bottle Gourd or Loki Juice (Lauki Juice Increase Height?)
Loki juice has about 96% water and no side effects. Hence it is basically water here that takes care of all skin, weight and body issues and ultimately promotes the growth in height.
All the aforementioned drinks should be accompanied with yoga and stretching exercises to observe an increase in height. Hanging on rod is also recommended for observing an increase in height as it works with gravity and helps weight of your lower torso stretch your spine resulting in definite increase by an inch or two minimum.
