Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Since you are 19 years age, there is no way you can increase height by any products. Don't get cheated by anyone who tells you they can. You're height is in average male height. Not to worry. you ca eat healthy fruits and vegetables and exercise daily, do graded muscle weight bearing exercises to increase muscle bulk and become fit and appear well built. Not to worry. Your personality will depend on how you come across, not your height. GOOD LUCK !!!!

Hello Rana;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The height of boys can grow upto 21 yrs till the bones get fused so hopefully your height will increase naturally.Another thing to keep in mind is that the height is genetically related and your height will be in proportion to your parents or grand parents and not more.Just in case you want to be more than and want to do it with the help of medicines then you have to consult a Endocrinologist who will help you with the issue and the medicines which are hormonal.

hi rana,welcome to HCM..
The age limit to grow height for boys is around 21 yrs of age so remember you can still grow few inches but you need to take a balanced diet along with proper exercises like running, yoga. meditation too. Take a good sleep for about 6 to 8 hrs IN NIGHT as necessary growth hormones are produce in body during early phase of deep sleep. consult dietician in mean while.
Your dietician prepares a proper diet plan for you after considering various factors like – age, weight, height, your tastes, nature of your work, etc. If you regularly follow the diet plan in accordance with the instructions given by the dietician it helps not only in increasing your height but also in improving your general health.
take care...
