Unlikely: Nothing you eat or drink and no special exercise or hormone will help you grow taller after your growth plates close.This usually happens at 17-18 in males. If you grow any taller, you would have anyway.

A 41-year-old member asked:

Can you use amway protein powder for height growth?

Dr. James Ferguson

Unlikely: If a person is at an age where further linear growth is possible, a balanced diet, proper rest and exercise will sustain normal growth. Protein powder, is no more benefit than balanced nutrition, but may help if some one has a poor diet or problems absorbing nutrients. It will not add height after ones growth centers close at 18.
