Dear
Thanks for contacting with your health concern and following is/are recommended guidelines in case one wishes to attain height:

1. Height of parents also decide height of an individual and if they are short in stature, it could be one reason of not attaining/achieving desired height and if there is no identifiable cause then by the age of 19 growing ends of long bone are completely fused/closed and no possible growth in term of height is possible.
2. Since Ashwagandha is more of an IMMUNOMODULATION (helps in increasing Immunity) thus alone it will not help in increasing height a healthy diet and exercise will help in height gain.
3. Eat a healthy, balanced and nutritious diet and practice pranayam,yogasanas, back exercise that stretches the spine which helps in increasing height by 1"-2" inches.
4. Contact with a yoga expert for various yogasanas which can be adopted and practiced in daily routine.
