In this video, we’re going to talk about how to increase your height naturally.

Children typically grow two inches in height each year between age one and puberty—this increases to four inches a year during puberty. Your height typically stops increasing between ages eighteen and twenty.

If you’re under twenty and want to grow taller, this information is for you. Find out what is causing early puberty here.

While there is a genetic limitation to your maximum height, you can support your growth with nutrients. Nutrient deficiencies can significantly reduce your height.

Three types of hormones are directly related to growing taller:

• Human growth hormone (HGH)

• Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)

• Thyroid hormones

Low HGH can be caused by:

1. Zinc deficiency:

• Excess phytates

• Sugar and refined carbs

• Alcohol

• Stress

• Not enough red meat or shellfish

2. Insufficient protein

3. Lack of sleep

4. Obesity

5. Smoking

6. Caffeine

7. Low vitamin D

8. Starvation

Low IGF-1 can be caused by:

• Liver damage—especially a fatty liver from a high-carb diet

Low thyroid hormones can be caused by:

• Iodine deficiency

• Not enough seafood, shellfish, and sea kelp

The best supports to help increase your height are:

1. A quality trace mineral product with zinc (or red meat and shellfish)

2. Pituitrophin PMG (SP)

3. Lots of sleep

4. Avoid phytates

5. Vitamin D3 (regular exposure to sunlight)

6. Healthy Keto and intermittent fasting
