At this age of yours most of the bones would have fused and it is difficult to increase your height. There are no proven medicines which can increase your height. Lots of spurious drugs are available in the market which makes false promise of increasing the height, never get carried away it. Try aerobics, this might be of some help.

Hi there,
Height is totally genetically determined. once growth centers fuse height cannot be changed. There is a limb-lengthening surgery but not advisable
Thanks & take care

As now you are 23 yrs fusion of your bones might be complete so less chance of increase ;if your height is somewhere about 5 ft plus anything then i feel you should be satisfied .Please note that height has a genetic background so if your parents & grandparents are not very tall even you will have height accordingly.Don't get disheartened Even Salmaan Khan/Aamir Khan /Sachin Tendulkar have less height but still they have achieved name/fame and tall stature which people envy.
