A human's height is determined by a number of factors. Genetics is first and most important. If your parents are short, you are unlikely to ever bump your head walking thr…ough a doorway. A tall grandparent might give you some hope. Your genes determine the maximum height you can potentially be. Other factors can prevent you from reaching that potential. Growing to be as tall as you can is mostly a matter of avoiding things that will prevent proper development. This means that you need to eat a proper balanced diet that includes calcium-rich foods as well as protein to provide material for both bones and muscles. There really is no one miracle food that you need to reach your full potential height, it's a matter of balanced nutrition. Reasonable amounts of exercise should also help, but care needs to be taken to avoid high-impact activities that can injure bones and joints in the critical growth period. Swimming and running are good. Extreme weightlifting less so. Growth is controlled by hormones. Hormones are chemicals produced by various glands in the body. Their production can be affected by other chemicals, and so it would only make sense that the less foreign chemicals make it into your system the better your chances to be taller would be. As trite as that sounds, don't smoke, kids. Avoiding drugs and industrial chemicals is also a good idea. The above largely applies to teenagers. Humans generally stop growing by their early 20's. Any significant height changes after that are highly unlikely. A lot of people are very insecure about their height. There are many companies out there trying to take advantage of that by selling "miracle pills", exercise systems, diets, and silly gadgets. Shoe lifts were all the rage about 40 years ago. Gadgets are junk. Exercise systems can cause injury. Diets can affect your body, but not in the vertical dimension. None of this stuff will make you taller, no matter what the sellers claim. There are no magic pills or potions that can increase your height once you have finished growing. Your height is predetermined in your genetic make up. Pills can be especially dangerous. At best, these things will do nothing. At worst, you risk unbalancing your endocrine system, and that can get really nasty. Human hormonal balance is a delicate thing, easy to upset and tough to fix. Hormone imbalances can cause men to grow breasts and women to grow mustaches. Use of growth hormones has been linked to cancer. Personally, I would take short and alive over tall and dead from cancer any day. If you are a teenager and have a concern about your growth, see an endocrinologist. They can run tests and see if your glands are working properly. If there is a problem, it is best to catch it early to have the best chance of fixing it. The tests involve checking hormone levels. The answers can only come from a lab and not from a website. If you are an adult, you are pretty much stuck being the height you are. There is an extremely difficult and painful surgical method of adding length to your limbs that involves breaking bones and gradually stretching them with special devices so that new bone grows to close the gap. It's called the Ilizarov technique, and it's about the only thing proven to work. As any surgery, it is risky, and no reputable doctor will do it unless you have a genuine case of dwarfism. One thing you can do is dress well. Monochrome colors to maintain a solid, uninterrupted look. No short sleeves or shorts. Your best bet is to change your outlook. Short people have it great - they can drive smaller cars and pay less for gas. They use less fabric for clothes. Besides, height is not what makes a person. Napoleon, being slightly less tall than the average Frenchman of his time, managed to conquer most of Europe. Nutrition: Foods rich in calcium (for bone growth, repair and strengthening), proteins (required for growth hormone production), zinc and vitamins Exercises: Mostly stretching exercises like the Cat stretch, wall stretch, sit up stretch, hanging, swimming and the yawn. Sleep: having enough sleep. Uninterrupted sleep at least 8 hours of sleep a day.

I am a white guy and I just turned 18 years old and I am 5 feet 7 inches tall. My dad is 5-11 and my mom is 5-1. My granddad's are both around 6 foot and they both and my dad …said they grew in college. How likely is it that I will grow? Am I short?
No there aren't pills, but there are injections. (Mostly used on midgets).
Yes I have grown a lot taller since the start of mine you might stop growing at 16-18 depends on the person
Having a vitamin deficiency is likely to reduce your overall growth. However this does not work the other way around - consuming more vitamins than you require is unlikely to …boost your growth. I.e once you're consuming all the vitamins and minerals that you need, any further increase in the amount of vitamins/minerals that you're ingesting will have no impact upon your speed of growth.
Exercises A minimum of 10 minutes intense exercise increases adrenalin, lactate, nerve acidity and nitric oxide. This stimulates the production of the growth hormone not only …during the exercise period but also during rest periods. Since dehydration reduces the growth hormone production drinking enough water during exercise is important. Exercise equipment that can aid proper performance of spine and knee exercises for height increase are the door gym, inversion boots and table, ankle weights, weightlifting wrist wraps and the stationary bike. Knee exercises are great to induce growth in people who have crossed the age of vertical growth. Stretching exercises, hanging and sprints are by far the most efficient ways to grow taller naturally. Proper diet Carbohydrates and fats deactivate the growth hormones and should be avoided. Fatty foods like burgers and chips lead to obesity and make a person look shorter. Soft drinks, alcohol, junk foods and caffeine hinder growth and should be left out from the diet. Sugar drinks with high phosphorous content can cause calcium excretion through urine and must be avoided. Adequate sleep The growth hormone release by the pituitary gland reaches its peak one hour after you sleep at night. Sound sleep for 8-9 hours a day is hence vital for augmenting height. A comfortable mattress and a dark warm room help to induce deep sleep. Health supplements to induce growth Personally I took a good growth booster called " HELPO Growth Formula " It helps build up cartilage and bones and increase height. The product allows quicker absorption. It helped me alot to grow taller. These steps combined with a good posture can go a long way at making you appear and grow taller naturally.
You can grow taller overnight in DREAM. Actually adolescents grow taller overnight by micromicro millimeters. It is quantifiable.
It will help if you stretch your spine. Otherwise you have to wait till you get older and go through puberty.
To simplify your question, I think you meant "How can you not grow taller?" And yes I got the answer, to not grow taller, you're need to put a bit of weight, not much exer…cising going on and lastly having less sleeping like 6 hours of course. So ya but growing taller has many benefits to you, just sayin
