    There are really no proven Vitamins or nutrients that will make you taller. There is a procedure where they break your kneecaps in surgery and while you recover you grow about an inch or two taller. Or you can try natural ways to enhance growth hormone (google it). Some say it makes you taller, but not for sure.

    Anyway I think your tall enough, a lot of guys like shorter girls (including me) just not too short.

    yoghurt, cheese, and boiled chicken. Your bones need phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium while your muscles need water, protein and carbohydrates to grow. Since you are growing taller, both your muscles and bones are getting bigger and longer. Don't waste your money or your health on drugs, alcohol or cigarettes.

    Have the hair style that makes you appear taller. In order to appear taller, a hair style should be thin at the sides and higher up top, which can make you appear as much as an inch taller Avoid clothes with horizontal lines. Belts are horizontal so make sure you conceal it in your clothes.

    Avoid clothes with a tartan or checked pattern. Avoid cuffs that makes your legs appear shorter.

    • Wear clothes with vertical lines or striping. Vertical lines make a person appear thinner,

    and thinness in turn gives impression of more height.

    Wear shoes that will make you appear taller. If you are a female, this should be easy since you can find a lot of female shoes with 2 or 3 inches’ heels. For males, wear shoes with thick soles to add the illusion of height.

    To increase your height, it is important that your blood is oxygenated as blood provides nourishment to your bones. Regular breathing will also purify your blood. There are three phases to breathing:

    1. Inhaling - take in air into your body through the nose

    2. Retaining - hold your breath inside your body

    3. Exhaling - blow out air from your body through the mouth

    It is during deep sleep that growth hormone does its job of thickening and lengthening your bones. So appropriate sleeping time (not the longer, the better) and correct sleeping posture is very important for your body to grow. Sleep is defined as a natural periodic state of rest for the mind and body, in which the eyes usually close and consciousness is completely or partially lost, so that there is a decrease in bodily movement and responsiveness to external stimuli.

    During deep sleep, growth hormone produced by your pituitary gland is released into your blood stream and travel through your body and causes the thickening and lengthening of your bones. Therefore, you should achieve "deep level" sleep on a daily basis in order to coordinate your affords of exercises and proper diet. The following are some helpful tips on how to easily achieve deep level sleep.

    Sleep in a comfortable and firm mattress.

    Sleep in a room that is dark, quiet and fresh smelling.

    Sleep with clean, soft, and comfortable clothes.

    Keep your hands and feet warm. Scientific studies have shown that warm hands and feet will help induce REM (rapid eye movement) deep sleep. Cold hands and feet will keep you from deep sleep.

    Drink a big glass of water before going to bed and when you wake up; this will help clean out your system.

    Practice total relaxation and deep breathing for a few minutes before you go to bed.

    Relax from head to toe. Close your eyes and relax every part of your body.

    Maintain a habit of sleeping at the same time everyday, including weekends.

    Sleep on your back with a flat pillow under your knees. This will align your spine properly and prevent any back aches caused by sleeping in a bent position.

    Undoubtedly, the quality, quantity, and type of food we eat affect our height, growth, and health. We cannot emphasize enough how important your food intake is in determining how much growth you can possibly obtain. The types of food you eat will either improve or decrease your growth potential.

    After careful consideration and research, the daily content of protein, carbohydrates, fats and water can be achieved if the following items were taken regularly.

    Carrots Fish Liver

    Egg Yolk Beef Red Meat

    Milk Cheese Apples

    Green Vegetables Potatoes Nuts

    Yellow Vegetables Almonds Bananas

    Peanuts Chicken Beans

    Peas Salt 6-8 glasses of water per day

    If you eat a lot of peanut butter, your height will not necessarily stop. Neither does masturbation stop height.

    What might stop you from growing is smoking, drugs, alcohol, lack of sleep, stress, digestive problems, or lack of exercise.

    Height Enhancer Products : The first approved natural product for height increase is Super-Growth or with this product it is possible to gain additional height growth even after puberty.

    I love Super-Growth Height Enhancer. I've been using it as a growth booster for several months now This stuff is great, It is rare for a product to live up to its advertised hype. But this one actually does. It Works as advertised. Also, this specific product advertises improved joint health. I injured my knee and could find no relief, but after 3 weeks of using the Super-Growth I no longer have knee pain. I have tried other height gaining products, but I have seen the best results from this product. My height continues to grow
