In brief: No

They may help to attain your full growth potential - but they will not make you taller.

In brief: Unlikely

You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep & and remaining physiclly active.
Nothing you eat or drink will add inches.You can stunt your growth by the opposite, poor diet/sleep/inactivity can all take a toll.The only thing a calcium supplement might do is repace calcium in someone who is defficient.
