Good diet: Taking a multivitamin and mineral supplement and eating a healthy diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables is important. Also getting regular exercise can be helpful. After the bones fuse at 16-17 years old there is no further increase in height.

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. Rest assured, at 16 you likely have more growing to do.
