Women's growth after menstruation

The golden growth period of women is shorter than that of men, because the hormonal changes brought about by women's menstrual cycle affect bone development.

Research shows that the year before women's menstruation is the most important golden time for development. The growth hormone secreted by the body promotes rapid bone growth, and the growth rate is obvious. After the menstrual period, the growth plate is affected by the estrogen, which accelerates the healing of the bones, making the bones start to close and harden. When the growth plate is fully sealed, the epiphyseal line slowly withers, making height growth slow or stop.

​Growth plate

The key to height.

Located at the upper and lower ends of the bones of the whole body, stimulated by the growth hormone secreted by the pituitary gland, they continuously divide and multiply longitudinally to form new cartilage tissues.


Cartilage becomes hard bone after calcification, and the bone becomes longer and wider, forming the reason for continuous growth and heightening.


When the growth plate reaches a certain stage, it begins to shrink and close, which determines the height.

Even if any growth hormone or booster stimulation is given, it will not be able to achieve a significant increase effect. Therefore, it is necessary to grasp the golden period of development and growth. ​

Golden growth period:

• Males approximately 11 to 16 years old

• Females around 10-14 years old


Growth hormone (HGH) is a hormone produced and secreted by the pituitary gland in the human brain. It mainly stimulates cells, bones, muscles and organs, and promotes physical growth and development.

The peak time of growth hormone secretion:

• 9:00 pm to 1:00 am (the next day)

• 5am to 7am

The secretion of growth hormone plays a role in deep sleep, so it needs to be about 60 minutes earlier to allow the body to enter a deep sleep state.

Height Principle


Daily life should be a balanced diet, especially protein absorption.
Protein is based on amino acid as the basic structural unit, which is the raw material for bones and muscles, and can increase height.
Foods such as milk, eggs, lean meat, fish, beans, and stone fruits contain diverse amino acid groups.


Medical research has confirmed that impact sports can promote the formation of bone growth plate cells and increase bone density, so sports can help children grow.


Impact sports such as jumping, rope skipping, basketball, badminton, running and other sports can put a certain amount of pressure on the joints, thereby causing the growth plates between the bones to collide, stimulating bone cell proliferation, and elongating the growth plates.


The National Sleep Foundation of the United States once pointed out that 9:00 pm to 1:00 am is the period when the growth hormone is secreted the most. However, when the human body enters a deep sleep, the growth hormone will be effective. Therefore, children need to go to bed early to grasp the golden opportunity to secrete growth hormone.
