Welcome to Healthcare Magic
There is absolutely no way height can increase by any kind of supplements or products. You should understand this to avoid getting cheated. You can try losing weight, becoming fit by proper diet and exercise. Wear high heels to appear taller. Wear T-shirts/Tops with stripes to make you appear taller. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Exercise daily.

Hi Praveen,thanks for query.There is nothing like height increase therapy.For you are it is not possible to increase height now.When you attain age of puberty, that is when your periods start ,ends of long bones stop growing so that there will not much increase in height after this age.Please do not take anything which is making tall claims.Please take guidance from your doctor about this.
wishing you good health.
