Hi Young lady
Look calcium carbonate, Vitamin D3 stuff like these wont help you at all height of human body is totally depend upon your genes it is genetic constitution and not the infectious disease which can curred so do not take above mentioned agents it some time make you more irritated particularly a calcium is such mineral which could bring mental irritation if taken for longer period of time

Hi Dear
Please dont go for such options which are not result oriented , I mean by now women have attained their total height and very rarely increase occurs in it. Some quacks try to sell growth hormones at this age , but that also wont help now when epiphyses have fused.
Just eat healthy food , rich in fruits and green leafy vegetables and do aerobic exercises daily. and hope for the best.
Good Luck!!!!
