Nutrition is the most important factor for the height growth in children. However, not all food and drinks are really good for their height growth. Accordingly, there are some kinds of drinks that are delicious but are also agents "inhibiting" human height growth. In order to recognize the drinks that are not good for height growth, let's read the following article.

Carbonated drinks

In a number of scientific studies, carbonated soft drinks contain air bubbles, which can increase urinary calcium excretion. Therefore, drinking too much this kind of drink for a long time can cause calcium deficiency in the body, thereby not only adversely affecting the height growth in children but also increasing the risk of bone and joint diseases in elderly people.

Moreover, the amounts of sugar and carbon dioxide gas in carbonated drinks also cause abdominal fullness in children and make them always feel full, which leads to anorexia and nutritional deficiencies in children. This adversely affects the functions of organs in their bodies as well as their health and the height growth.

On the other hand, carbonated drinks contain components that are harmful to children's health such as destroying tooth enamel, causing tooth decay, damaging gastric mucosa and causing digestive disorders.

Alcoholic drinks

Alcoholic drinks such as wine, beer and spirit are also not good for our health in general and for the height growth in particular. If you frequently use alcoholic drinks, they will lead to many dangerous diseases related to the cardiovascular system, liver, nervous system, blood making physical and mental health decline. As a result, your height cannot grow maximally. If you want to stay healthy and possess an ideal height, you should stay away from beer, wine and other alcoholic drinks.

Caffeinated drinks

Coffee is a kind of drink that has high caffeine content. Moreover, caffeine is a substance that can adversely affect the body's mineral absorption. If the body does not have enough minerals, the bones will not be able to grow and the height growth will be hindered. Furthermore, excessive caffeine consumption will increase body temperature and cause dehydration and rash. Therefore, in order to maintain good health and facilitate height growth, you should give up the habit of using caffeinated drinks every day.

Drinks containing too much sugar

Do you know that drinks with too much sugar will not only affect the height growth but also increase the risk of obesity and tooth decay? Accordingly, a can of energy drink can contain up to 50 grams of sugar. This level of sugar exceeds the maximum level allowed by the body in a day so it is not good for the height growth.

Furthermore, a can of energy drink can contain 50-400 milligrams of caffeine, which is 4-5 times higher than the amounts of caffeine in a cup of coffee. Caffeine in energy drinks can help users become more alert but it causes sleeping difficulty, insomnia and creates a feeling of restlessness and anxiety, thereby adversely affecting the height growth. Therefore, you should limit the intake of drinks with too much sugar in order that your height growth is not adversely influenced.
