Hello, Although the height of a person is determined by the persons genetics, other environmental factors such as food and diet also have an influence on a person’s height. When it comes to foods that increase height, there is nothing like milk and other dairy products. They contain all the essential nutrients for height increase, such as calcium, proteins and vitamins A, B, D and E. Eggs are a powerful source of vitamin D, calcium, and Vitamin B2 or Riboflavin, all of which helps in developing strong bones and a healthy body. Soybean is yet another nutritious food that provides a boost to your height when consumed on a daily basis. The wide range of minerals present in Ashwagandha help in broadening the bones of the body and also increase bone density which helps in increasing height.This is not really a food, but more of a natural herbal remedy for increasing height.When you are trying to increase your height after the age of 24, then chicken is one of the best food options in this case. Chicken is one of the best natural sources of protein available which helps build tissues and muscles. You can also prefer some exercises like hanging, swimming,jumping, cobra stretch, triangle pose, etc.

Hello...
Your ossification centres of the bones have closed... So there is as such no chance of increasein your height.... Stretches will help you to keep the muscles active... You will not gain height due to stretches.... Hope you understand.... Thank you
