There are a few things that you need to know before you can grow tall because you can actually hinder the growth of your body if you get the wrong vitamins and minerals. Here are a few things you need to know if you are looking to get taller.

The first thing you need to know is to make sure you put the right vitamins and minerals into your body such as calcium that you get from dairy products, iron that you can get from red meat and there are many more. But the thing you got get a knowledge of is your protein level in your body. Everyone’s protein levels are different depending on the size of your body, if you are old or young but there are 2 types of proteins.

The 2 types are complete and incomplete proteins. The main difference between the 2 proteins is that the complete proteins provide a balance of 8 amino acids that help build tissue in the body and the incomplete proteins do not have all amino acids that the body needs.

Another thing you have to do is to eat a steady amount of food.

This does not mean that you need to stuff yourself with food because then your body is spending to much energy trying to digesting the food you just eaten. Instead, eat a good portion so you feel full because if you are just eating a small portion of food, you are telling your body that it can’t have the fuel it needs to grow and heal itself.

If you are looking to stay healthy and stay on track in order to grow tall, the best thing that is recommended by health experts is to eat your meals about 4 to 5 hours apart. This allows the sugar to dissolve in your bloodstream and also allows the growth hormone to go to the tissue masses in your body so you can grow.

Also it is recommended that you don’t eat 4 hours before you go to bed. The food just sits in your stomach and the food just doesn’t have a chance to digest.
