How can you grow taller and increase height when both of your parents are short?
- I have short parents and I am normal height.
- The only way that is going to happen is to hope that you had some tall grandparents or other ancestors and you happened to get that part of the gene pool. My dad is 5' 7" and my mom is 5' 6". I'm 6 foot tall.

What did you notice about the diameter of the parent droplets as you increased the height of the drop?
the diameter increases as the height is increased
3 tomatoes 250 gr broad beans 250 gr cabbage put in the blender and blend as they turn a liquid ad drink it everyday :)
Answer There is not much we can do to grow taller after puberty. There are many products in the market today that claim to increase height of adults, but they are all s…cams without sufficient scientific evidence. Surgical options, though available, are EXTREMELY RISKY and of course expensive. Answer Unless you're still an adolescent and in a growing phase, there's no way to increase your height.
This would depend on your age (and more specifically: bone maturation). If one has completed puberty (excepting any estrogen defficiency/resistance) testosterone, o…r any hormone for that matter, will not effect height. Before growth plate fusion, however, an increase in testosterone ios necessary for a male to reach full potential height. However, the testosterone increase will eventually hault growth permanently (due to an increase is subsequent estrogen levels, which naturally will eventually cause growth plates to close). So, during puberty, yes the hormone will temporarily increase growth, until eventually: the inevitable end to longitudal growth.
Many people are taller than either of their parents. It is very common.If you are still within the growing age then perhaps you can add a few inches by eating a balanced diet …and leading an active life. A nutritious diet that includes fruits and vegetables, dairy, cereals, meat, and plenty of water will aid the natural process for enhancing height. A good and proper night's sleep is also essential for the growth process. Taking part in active sports along with some stretching exercises can have a cumulative effect on human growth.
5'7" is pretty impressive height actually. If you aspire to be a model, then the standard height is 5'9". But 5'7" is not bad either.
A human's height is determined by a number of factors. Genetics is first and most important. If your parents are short, you are unlikely to ever bump your head walking thr…ough a doorway. A tall grandparent might give you some hope. Your genes determine the maximum height you can potentially be. Other factors can prevent you from reaching that potential. Growing to be as tall as you can is mostly a matter of avoiding things that will prevent proper development. This means that you need to eat a proper balanced diet that includes calcium-rich foods as well as protein to provide material for both bones and muscles. There really is no one miracle food that you need to reach your full potential height, it's a matter of balanced nutrition. Reasonable amounts of exercise should also help, but care needs to be taken to avoid high-impact activities that can injure bones and joints in the critical growth period. Swimming and running are good. Extreme weightlifting less so. Growth is controlled by hormones. Hormones are chemicals produced by various glands in the body. Their production can be affected by other chemicals, and so it would only make sense that the less foreign chemicals make it into your system the better your chances to be taller would be. As trite as that sounds, don't smoke, kids. Avoiding drugs and industrial chemicals is also a good idea. The above largely applies to teenagers. Humans generally stop growing by their early 20's. Any significant height changes after that are highly unlikely. A lot of people are very insecure about their height. There are many companies out there trying to take advantage of that by selling "miracle pills", exercise systems, diets, and silly gadgets. Shoe lifts were all the rage about 40 years ago. Gadgets are junk. Exercise systems can cause injury. Diets can affect your body, but not in the vertical dimension. None of this stuff will make you taller, no matter what the sellers claim. There are no magic pills or potions that can increase your height once you have finished growing. Your height is predetermined in your genetic make up. Pills can be especially dangerous. At best, these things will do nothing. At worst, you risk unbalancing your endocrine system, and that can get really nasty. Human hormonal balance is a delicate thing, easy to upset and tough to fix. Hormone imbalances can cause men to grow breasts and women to grow mustaches. Use of growth hormones has been linked to cancer. Personally, I would take short and alive over tall and dead from cancer any day. If you are a teenager and have a concern about your growth, see an endocrinologist. They can run tests and see if your glands are working properly. If there is a problem, it is best to catch it early to have the best chance of fixing it. The tests involve checking hormone levels. The answers can only come from a lab and not from a website. If you are an adult, you are pretty much stuck being the height you are. There is an extremely difficult and painful surgical method of adding length to your limbs that involves breaking bones and gradually stretching them with special devices so that new bone grows to close the gap. It's called the Ilizarov technique, and it's about the only thing proven to work. As any surgery, it is risky, and no reputable doctor will do it unless you have a genuine case of dwarfism. One thing you can do is dress well. Monochrome colors to maintain a solid, uninterrupted look. No short sleeves or shorts. Your best bet is to change your outlook. Short people have it great - they can drive smaller cars and pay less for gas. They use less fabric for clothes. Besides, height is not what makes a person. Napoleon, being slightly less tall than the average Frenchman of his time, managed to conquer most of Europe. Nutrition: Foods rich in calcium (for bone growth, repair and strengthening), proteins (required for growth hormone production), zinc and vitamins Exercises: Mostly stretching exercises like the Cat stretch, wall stretch, sit up stretch, hanging, swimming and the yawn. Sleep: having enough sleep. Uninterrupted sleep at least 8 hours of sleep a day.
you try to be like a tall person
Short parents don't always give birth to short children. in most cases, children are often taller than parents for bizzare reasons. i guess the height of children has so…mething to do with genetics of relatives or grand-parent. but this question need to scientifical back up. my pesonal opinion is that , mostly children's height is not only influenced by parent genes but also by grandparents too.
plants grow taller in the dark because plant will grow until they find light, but will eventually die.
No it does not help your chances to grow taller. Just Eat Your VEGSTABALES (:
Your body has a growth spert
In the book, "Grow Taller 4 Idiots," there is a vegetable cocktail mentioned that contains concentrated amounts of various amino acids and it is supposed to help increase …height. The ingredients in the cocktail are tomatoes, broad beans, and cabbage.
You grow because cells in your body are being reproduced faster tthan they are dying. COMMON SENSE!!
