I don't think there are any 'magic potions' to be able to grow taller. If you have a medical condition that has affected growth, you will need to visit a doctor to see if there is anything that can be done for the condition. If it is simply a genetic factor, there isn't anything you can do. Make sure you have good posture and you will automatically look taller. Slouching is not only unattractive, but it will make you look shorter than you actually are. How old are you? Are you done growing? Both of my sons are 6'3" now, but one started early and one much later.

I think people who play basket ball or volleyball become much taller because they often jump around. Well, we could see that almost players of those sports are really tall unless the teams only recruit tall people to join them. Another thing i have heard it sleeping early could also help is grow taller and drinking milk before sleeping would help us build up our bones.

Hello,Sathees! There is no magic nutrient that influence the height.However,a diet with sufficient calories and the right mix of nutrients in general is what helps people grow as tall as possible.But diet by itself is not responsible for whether people reach their genetic potential for height .Environmental factors such as good housing,medical care,and sanitation facilities are also key.However height can not be increased beyond the age of twenty five.The growth slows down after twenty five years.thanx.

The simple answer is that there is nothing that will increase your height once the growth plates at the end of your long bones are fused. Stretching and some yoga exercises may have some temporary effect, but even here we are talking about fractions of an inch. If your posture is stooped, shoulders rounded, and spine contracted, then there is more of a positive chance of height increase through yoga. Other than that, don't get your hopes up. =\

I've read a number of articles about this, however, I've never tried anything so I can't speak of their efficiency. =P There are a number of stretching exercises you can do to increase your height. Stetching is always good for you and your muscles, but perhaps certain ones can extend your spine or legs. You can do a bit of research about this. =P Pull ups are another form of exercise that can help you extend your spine. Try hanging from a bar a few times every day, and pull yourself up to do exercises. =P Swimming (especially the butterfly stroke) is another one you can try for your spine. If you look at top swimmers, they always have a long upper body compared to people that don't swim often. If you have access to a pool or beach, this would definitely be worth a shot. Good luck and I hope I helped. ^_^ If anything, at least you'll do some exercise. =D
