Thinking about getting a height increase? Find out the natural way to do so. No pills required.
So you're not quite satisfied with your height and you're looking for a height increase. More and more people these days are turning towards medication, pills and supplements. However those are not the only ways to get the increase in height that you so desperately seek! By following the right training programs and exercises, you can get the height increase that you desire without the expensive and unnatural medication.
The best type of exercise to submit your body through in order to gain a height increase is stretching exercises. What you put your body through during your stretching exercise routine has a direct effect on what your pituitary gland puts out to build height. A recent study in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that the frequency and amount of growth hormone the body secretes is relative to the intensity of your workout. Subjects who exercised at a higher intensity experienced greater and more frequent releases of growth hormone after their workouts and thus were able to increase their height.
To get the most from your stretching exercises, you need to be sure that the duration and intensity of your regimen are high enough to elicit a response. Keeping your workouts focused on short-burst, high intensity anaerobic stretching exercises and maintaining a pace that lasts at least 20-30 minutes is a fair standard to follow.
There are certain stretching exercises that may help squeeze out a little extra growth hormone and help you grow taller faster. By utilizing stretches that include several muscle groups to work collectively, the intensity of the workout subsequently increases as well, forcing the anterior pituitary gland to issue more growth hormone to compensate for the extra effort.
So look into stretching exercises such as yoga and pilates or even chin ups and pull ups to help you grow taller naturally.
Some people are insistent though that supplements don't hurt either when trying to grow taller and they are probably right. What you do need to do however is to supplement your height increase strategically. There are ways to supplement your quest to grow taller and still keep it natural and cheap.
To grow taller, try taking the amino acid glycine immediately or before you work out can mildly stimulate the release of growth hormone, but only when taken as a supplement. Trying to achieve the same effect by consuming glycine-rich foods such as poultry or milk prior to exercise only inhibits growth hormone by causing you to exercise on a full stomach, plus the glycine doesn't get absorbed in the same way.
Being introduced into the body in the presence of additional amino acids forces the glycine to compete for transport across the blood-brain barrier, diminishing its effect on the growth hormone levels. The only way glycine can cause a reaction is when taken in isolated supplement form, preferably on an empty stomach to speed up absorption and prevent outside interference from other amino acids.
Others have also considered surgery as a way to gain an increase in height, however this should be the last thing to look at as it is expensive and could be hazardous to your health. The natural way is still the best way to get that height increase as it not only gets you the results you want, it is better for your overall health and as a side bonus its cheap!
