    I'm not a doctor but really supplement does not work for me. I'll suggest you to don't take any supplement or powder for increasing your height. the way to increase your height is to eat plenty of food, plenty of water and sleep 7 to 8 hours at each night. Some another things that will help you to gaining height which are advise by my yoga teacher :

    1. Milk : Drink two glasses of milk
    everyday. it build your bones and
    provide protien,vitamin D and
    2. Eat otmeal called dalia in hindi that will
    makes your heart healthy too. By eating
    dalia in breakfast than definitely your
    height will be increases. It works for me
    3. Beans,peanuts and peas having a
    protien, minerals and
    vitamin that makes you taller.
    4. Turnips also helps in increasing height.
    It is one of the most effective foods to
    grow taller.

    You must have seen the sport women have good heights. They are not born to gain that height neither their parents had. So basically along with diet you will need to follow sports. Play such games where height is getting used. E.g. basket ball , volley ball or even badminton.
    For basketball players stay hanging to poll by hand for long times to grow their hand and height length. For same reason gym instructor might tell you to do pull up or chin ups which increases height.
    It is said they you can't grow more than your parents but I have seen exceptions. Mostly till 21 years you have quite lot chances of growing height. All the best.

    After a certain age it is difficult to gain in height but certain efforts may help in that direction.
    First of all rich diet containing calcium, minerals, antioxidants etc is a pre requisite for body growth.
    Certain exercises like hanging below a horizontal rod by fastening both the hands on rod is said to produce the desired result. Initially it is to be doe for little time (10-15 seconds) and gradually can be prolonged to 1/2 minute.
    This exercise in case of ladies is to be done under advice of a physiotherapist or a gynaecologist.

    Knowledge is power.

    To increase your height you have to take nutritious foods. Try to take foods enriched in calcium, vitamin D and lots of minerals which plays important role in developing your bones and muscles. Certain types of exercise can do a wonder for you such as jumping rope etc. Yoga is also very much helpful, as I also get result by performing yoga. Try to do asanas like Ustrasana, Dhanurasana, Trikonasana etc. Hope it will do best for you..
