Hello doctor,

I am 23. I want to increase my height. Is there any medicine for it? I see a lot of advertisements about it. But, are there any clinically proven methods?



Welcome to

  • The growth of our body depends on the secretion of the growth hormones. It is the one which regulates our growth. Our body development is almost complete by 18 years of age. After that, it is very hard to obtain.
  • In the market, there are several growth supplement products available but, their benefits are doubtful. They enhance only the nutritive value of the body.
  • Some research says that a diet rich in protein and calcium help improve the bone length or epiphysis development.
  • Doing yogasanas like Tadasana every day with Shatavari Churna 3 g twice a day with milk may help improve your height.
