How to increase weight, height and maintain personality?

Hi, i am a female and i am 24 years old and my height is 4 ft 9 inch and my personality is also not so good. I look like a 12 year old child. I am quite depressed and unhappy with my height and personality. I want to gain at least 5. It is possible for me to gain this height. I had seen many adds on the televesion which says it is 100% guaranteed to grow height beyond 20 and it will stimulate your pituitary gland to release HGH hormone and will get good personality

Hello dear,

First of all, please do not get influenced by any advertisement or health product which claim to boost your growth hormone & increase may be harmful.

Height of an individual is determined by Genetics, Environmental & Nutritional factors and Hormonal factors (most important the Growth Hormone secreted by pituitary gland in brain)
An individual stops growing in height after the fusion of the Epiphyses (growth plates) of the long bones, which occurs by the age of 17-21 yrs in males. you are 24 yrs old now, there is minimal chance of increasing your height.
An X ray of your wrist joint can be taken to look for the fusion of epiphyses.

Regarding your body build, make sure that you are taking a healthy & balanced diet, exercise regularly & avoid stress.
Protein rich diet like soya, groundnut, pulses, etc should be incorporated in your diet plan.

Wishing you Good Health.
Take care.
