    Young men can grow until they are around 20.

    Two things we can do to initiate HGH secretion are sleep and exercise.

    Eat tryptophan rich foods...

    Tryptophan is a routine constituent of most protein-based foods or dietary proteins. It is particularly plentiful in chocolate, oats, dried dates, milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, red meat, eggs, fish, poultry, sesame, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, spirulina, and peanuts.

    Tryptophan is an amino acid that is converted to serotonin, which increases HGH (Human Growth Hormone) during sleep.

    And that's about it. You will grow as tall and as quickly as your genes dictate.
