The height of a person is determined by his or her genetics, and it is believed that a person stops growing after reaching the age of 18-21 years of age. But there are various other factors that influence growth and a person can still grow a few inches taller even after puberty by following a healthy lifestyle and incorporating healthy foods and stretching exercises in their daily routine. Some medical treatment can also help. You watch lots of advertisement that sells height increasing medicines but trust me most of them are not effective. You may contact via call or video conferencing so that I can address your problem in a precise manner.
