Can You Increase Your HGH for Height?

There is a natural way of increasing your height through boosting the levels of human growth hormone (HGH) in your body. Production of the hormone begins to slow with age. As we approach adulthood, the hormone tends to be less effective. Speak with your health care professional to learn about options, aside from the natural ones, that can help increase your HGH for height.

Step 1

Use growth hormone supplements or injections. These supplements are quite expensive, with the injection costing even more, and there are usually severe side effects. According to the Mayo Clinic, if you take these supplements or injections, you should be monitored by your health care professional every couple of months to have your hormone levels checked. Mayo Clinic suggests wearing a medical alert bracelet and carrying a card in your wallet to notify others in an emergency that you are taking a growth hormone medication.

Step 2

Get proper sleep. As small a factor as it sounds, if you get proper sleep during the night, your body tends to boost the production of all hormones in the body. According to Growing Taller Guide, aside from giving your body the rest it needs, sleeping also allows your body to develop and grow naturally.

Step 3

Exercise at least five times per week. By using exercises that help with gaining height, you will naturally increase the level of HGH in your body. Certain weight training exercises, high intensity sprints and bar hanging can help you achieve this. Growing Taller Guide also says you must strengthen your abdominal and back muscles first to get the most out of your exercises.

Step 4

Eat a healthy diet. According to, you have to eat more foods high in amino acids to help increase the levels of HGH in your body. Adding calcium, zinc, iron, copper and magnesium to your diet can help you increase these levels as well.
