Growth potential: After puberty, most men and women do not experience much increase in height. The best way to maximize your height is through balanced nutrition, good posture and exercises that will strengthen your back and core muscles to support your spine.

No: Females are generally done at 16-17 and males 17-18.At 30, you are long past finished, and no hormone will change the status of your growth centers.

Heels: So, what can you do to grow taller if your genes dictate that you’re meant to be short? Well, only a small percentage of people with a short height can grow taller. Studies also show that most people stop growing in their mid-twenties. http://www.beyonddisease.com/top-ways-to-increase-height-and-grow-taller
