Iron is part of building your red blood cells. You need iron so your blood can carry oxygen throughout your body. If you want to grow taller, support your body’s need for oxygen.
Check with your doctor before taking iron supplements. Males can overdose on supplements. Menstruating women normally do not have issues with too much iron.
Eating iron rich food shouldn’t be a problem. Foods high in iron include shellfish, spinach, liver, legumes, red meat, and quinoa.
Glutamine is an amino acid that is used to build protein. You normally have enough glutamine in your system unless you are under stress. Studies have shown that 2 grams of food high in glutamine can raise your HGH production.
Snacks on these foods to increase your glutamine levels: raw leafy green vegetables, animal protein and eggs, milk, yogurt and cheese. Goat’s milk has higher levels of glutamine!
