Balanced nutrition: At fourteen your growth centers have some potential for growth and simple measures help the best.Follow a healthy diet, rest and exercise.Special workouts or supplements will not make you grow taller than your genetic potential.If you want to know how much longer you have to grow, an x-ray of your wrist and hand can be analysed for bone maturity.

Probably no chance.: Your height is determined by your genes that you get from your parents. After age 20 your height does not grow any longer .
