Hi...., Height is an genetically determined factor....Various factors influence the persons height.... Men grow height-wise until 21 years old, although depending on the person they may experience slight changes until 25..... Drink milk, Milk is rich in calcium, an important mineral for bone growth. Calcium also acts as a height booster.... Do yoga and strech your body... These are natural ways of increasing height.... Exercise and sports stimulate the release of growth hormone that contributes to your height. ....
