You need good nutrition to grow, but most of us can get that through food and beverages without needing supplements.
Here is a list of foods you should certainly have in your diet to increase height:
Vitamin D: An essential vitamin required for height is vitamin D rich food. For the proper absorption of calcium, bone development and healthy immune functioning, include vitamin D rich foods such as fish, cereals, eggs, tofu, soy milk, soy beans, mushrooms, sausages and almonds.
Protein: This is another natural way to increase height . Protein rich foods are healthy and effective in height gain as it repairs body tissues and promotes building new tissues. Amino acids in protein rich foods are crucial for proper growth and function of the human body. Protein rich foods such as milk, cheese, green beans, seeds (pumpkin, watermelon and squash), fish (tuna, salmon), lean meat, lean beef, peanuts, lentils, chicken, oatmeals, soy beans and pulses are nutritious. Include these foods in your diet to enhance height gain.
Vitamin A: For healthy and proper functioning of the body organs, have vitamin A rich food. Vitamin A preserves calcium in the bones and keeps it strong and healthy. Vitamin A rich foods also improves eye sight and helps get a glowing skin. Include food such as spinach, beetroot, carrots, chicken, cantaloupe, papaya, peach, milk, tomatoes, peas and apricot. You can even have juice of few vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots, beetroot to name a few.
Calcium: It is important to keep the bones strong. Calcium rich foods improves the bone growth and development. Have dairy products such as milk, cheese, yogurt and eggs everyday to increase height. These foods are filling, tasty and healthy!
