For pefect health balanced diet is must and when this is associated with regular exercise the things go in a normal way. Height of a person continues to grow till age of majority. If this is stunted as a result of some disease or cause that need be corrected. The formula you have mentioned is like a general tonic. something to stimulate proper digestion and some formulation of mandur can also be added.

Dear Mirza,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
I think you have some confusion.Protein is absolutely necessary for growth and without it growth cannot occur.Infact protein is the base of cell and cell growth cannot occur without protein.

You need to take high protein diet and also do regular exercise especially stretching like pull ups .
Your usual height should be the average of your parents height.Currently you are in the stage of growth spurt and so you will definately increase your height.

Hope this helps
