Why Grow?

A height advantage can be helpful in many sports. So how can you grow taller to get this much-wanted advantage?

Hormones are an important part of the body's functioning. They play a key part in getting taller and stronger, helping with your body's temperature system, and are essential to giving you the energy boost you need to reach peak performance.

The thyroid is a small gland in the body located in your neck that produces these hormones that are needed for the breakdown of energizers and superfoods, growth and development.

Obviously, you want to keep that thyroid working well, and you can do that with the help of selenium. Selenium is a mineral that acts like an antioxidant that protects the important thyroid gland, keeping it healthy and working properly so that you can grow taller and strong
