welcome to HCM
Dear Sarika you are 22 year old so there is complete osteophysis on end of long bones so there is absolutely no chance of increase of even a fraction of single inch
so do not get lured or perplexed by alluring offers and advertisement

Hi, Sarika
Sorry dear,now you can not increase your height as after 20,fusion of epiphisis of bones take place so further increasing of bones and so the height.
Even then you go for physical exercise like running,jogging,rope jumping.
Ok and bye.

Ok and bye.

welcome to healthcaremagic
sorry to say there is low chance of gaining height for you. Normally height gain age range from 14-21yrs. But beyond this less change. Also height is hereditary..if you had history of low height in your generations.There is no specific description of height gain medicine in Ayurveda but the calcium suppliment may be helpful. yoga, exercise and some asanas are effective. Please dont follow any advertisement for height gain medicines. There are useless except loss of money.
take care

Hi sarika,
welcome to healthcaremagic forum,
there are still a few chance to increase height but only medicines may not help you.
Take SBL's Ritehite tablets once a week dose as instructed on packet. along with this do swimming, cycling and various other stretches.
u may get benefitted by it.
take care,
Dr. Rooma Ramnani
