A diet rich in vitamins, mineral and protein is essential if your dream is to become taller. Having a malnourished body will make sure your dream of a taller height does not see the light of day. Nevertheless your every day diet may not contain all the necessary nutrients required for a healthy body and becoming taller. So you need to know what kind of foods will provide your body with the vitamins and nutrients you will require to become taller.
Foods rich in protein are one of the most important foods necessary for growing tall or even growing taller. This same protein is required by those desperately seek to build six pack abs or healthy muscles hence a fitness/body building program will also advise you to take food that contain lots of protein.
The sources of protein rich diets are endless, so you do not have any excuse why you should not take them. Common sources of proteinous foods include: meat, fish, diary products like milk, nuts like peanuts, poultry, eggs etc.
Apart from taking diets rich in protein you should also include foods rich in vitamins and minerals to your diet. Vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12 (Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pyridoxine and Cobalamin respectively) as well as other B vitamins like folic acid etc.), vitamin C etc. should also be included in your diet.
Lack of some of these vitamins could have some unpleasant effects on our body system. For example lack of vitamin B1 (thiamine) causes beriberi which is characterized by muscular weakness, swelling of the heart etc. So as you can see inclusion of vitamins in your diet will ensure that your body system functions properly and produces hormones required to grow tall in the right amounts. I almost forgot to mention that vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is important for the absorption and metabolism of amino acids (a constituent of protein).
Great sources of vitamins and minerals include tomatoes, liver, carrots (vitamin A), green leafy vegetables, dairy products, fish, eggs etc..
With a proper diet rich in the necessary nutrients required for growth, the right amount of sleep and a daily exercise routine you are surely on your way to making your dream of becoming taller fast come true.
