Human Height: Critical Factors That Control Your Growth Potential
What Controls Growth Rate And How Tall We Ultimately Become?
Our height is ultimately under the control of our own personal DNA code inherited at conception. Beyond this, the largest influencer of how well those genes can do their job is nutrition—both the type and quantity that is available during critical growth phases. If all the macro and micronutrients are supplied in abundance when the body calls for them, then there is the best chance of reaching its full growth potential. Skimp on bone-building minerals, quality protein, sleep, and exercise and it will be more than likely that a submaximal height will be the result.
This publication explores the main factors that dictate your height and even a few ways to possibly override your preset genetics.
