Does height depend on genetics?
What is the pituitary gland?
The pituitary gland is an endocrine gland located at the base of the brain. The pituitary gland has a normal size of 10 x 13 x 6 mm and weighs about 0.6 g. The function of the pituitary gland is to secrete the important hormones including the GH which is an important factor to determine the height growth.
When the pituitary gland secretes much GH, people will have outstanding height. If the pituitary gland secretes little GH, people will have short stature. Therefore, in order to achieve maximum height, the pituitary gland must work well.
Pituitary failure (Hypopituitarism) is the leading cause of "dwarfism" (the pituitary gland does not secrete or secretes little GH). "Dwarfism" is a condition that causes a person to be very short: men are usually under 51 inches and women are usually under 48 inches. Overactive pituitary gland (Hyperpituitarism) is the cause of gigantism (the pituitary gland secretes too much GH).
Which factors does human height depend on?
Genetics: Genetics determines 30-60% of human height growth. The most ancient archaeological evidences have shown that European and North American people have very good height and their descendants also own outstanding height.
Non-genetic factors (40-70%)
Nutrition: Nutrition plays a key role in human height growth. The Asian, Middle Eastern or South American countries are places that have improvements in nutrition in recent decades. Therefore, the data has shown that the height of people in these regions is better than before. This demonstrates the importance of nutrition to the height growth.
Enhance calcium-rich foods and vitamin-rich foods in daily meals, drink milk every day, eat foods rich in Collagen Type 2 such as chicken breast,...
Avoid overusing foods and drinks that are not good for the height growth such as wine, beer, coffee, carbonated soft drinks, canned drinks, sweets and greasy fast food.
Exercise: Exercise also affects human height growth. The fact is that athletes often have fairly outstanding height compared to normal people thanks to frequently playing sports and regular exercising.
According to scientific studies, in people with an average of 60 minutes of daily exercise in moderate intensity, the GH secretion by the pituitary gland at night is 1.5 - 3 times higher than those who do not exercise. The studies also have shown that gentle exercise such as walking or excessive exercise such as marathon running does not cause the GH to be secreted more at night.
Sports that are good for the height growth are swimming, rugby, basketball, volleyball, badminton, cycling, hanging, rope jumping, etc. These kinds of sports should be practiced outdoors every day before 9:00 AM and after 4:00 PM.
Sports that are not good for the height growth are marathon running, weight lifting, martial arts, etc.
Sleep and living environment: At night, when we are sleeping, the secreted GH level is four times greater in comparison in the daytime. Staying up late and not getting enough sleep will hinder the GH secretion, which badly affects the height growth in children. Reports of many scientific studies have demonstrated that our bones are mainly lengthened while we are sleeping.
How to sleep for the best height growth?
Sleep before 10:00 PM because the GH is secreted most from 11:00 PM to 01:00 AM.
Sleep 8 hours per day.
The bedroom should be quiet and comfortable. Do not sleep with the light on.
Proper sleeping posture: lie on your back with your body straight and avoid sleeping on your side.
The advantages of increasing height
The National Bureau of Economic Research (USA) has published results of a survey on 5,304 males in Indonesia from different occupations within 7 years from 2009 to 2016. The results have shown that 15 cm taller in height is equivalent to a different income of 1000 rupiah more every hour. This affirms that we can earn more money if we have outstanding height.
Rugby players, basketball players, volleyball players, and models... are the careers that attract the attention of many people and have a high income. These careers require employees to meet certain criteria of height.
Many notes of the height of the American presidents and presidential candidates have shown that candidates with outstanding height often prevail over others because the public is often more impressed by candidates with good height.
Being tall helps us become more impressive and outstanding and attracts the attention of the opposite sex.
The disadvantages of a short stature
Research by the UK Department of Health and Social Care has shown that men with the heights of less than 64 inches and women with the heights less than 59 inches felt the worst when they assessed their health level.
According to New England Journal of Medicine in the UK in 2015, tall people often have healthier hearts compared to short people. Therefore, the risks of cardiovascular diseases in tall people are less than that of short people. Women with a height of 5 feet 8 inches will have the risks of cardiovascular diseases reduced by 28% compared to those with a height of 5 feet 3 inches. This means being 2.5 inches taller will have the risks of cardiovascular diseases reduced by 14%.
Short stature makes people feel less confident.
Short stature makes people feel less attractive.
Things to consider in the process of increasing height
There are many factors that determine the height growth: nutrition, exercise, sleep, living habits, etc. If we only act on one or some factors, it is not enough to stimulate the height to grow maximally.
Many surveys of the WHO have confirmed that height can only grow naturally until about the age of 20 or height can stop growing sooner if the growth plates are completely closed. After this age, it is impossible to grow taller naturally.
Nutrition is the most decisive factor to the natural height growth. However, improper eating habits and frequent fast food eating often increase the risks of obesity and precocious puberty, put pressure on the stomach and colon, adversely affect health and hinder the height growth.
