Thank you for your query.

At the outset let me advise you not to go for so claimed "super growth natural products" which have no role in increasing height. The final height of a child shall depend on the height of the parents (from whom the child has got the genes) and the nutrition. It is not uncommon to find children being taller than their parents with improvement in the nutrition. Nutrition here implies having a well-balanced diet rather than junk food.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
