In brief: No

At 19 your growth centers have likely closed and no further growth in stature is likely.
Calcium supplements only help when you are deficient, but do not add stature that you would not get with a normal healthy diet.

In brief: Sorry

But your bones are closing and you're not going to get any taller, no matter what you do or take.
You may grow a slight bit over the next 1-2 years if you're 19, but that will be genetically determined.
