Nutrition Clinically Shown
to Help Kids Grow

Our protein-shake powder was developed by physicians and nutrition experts to support and enhance diet to promote height. The formula, based on food components that are important for proper growth, has been shown in a clinical study to boost kids’ (3–9 years) height and weight, without a change in BMI percentiles.

Until now, there were no adequately studied options designed especially for healthy, short, and lean children. This is particularly the case for healthy children who do not meet the criteria for growth hormone therapy.

Our formula was developed with that need in mind.

In a prospective, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial that was subsequently published in the prestigious Journal of Pediatrics, 200 healthy, lean, short, prepubertal, 3- to 9-year-old children consumed our formula (n =100) or the placebo supplement (n=100) along with their evening meal. For the next 6 months, all participants were offered to continue the study with the formula.

At the end of the 6-month study, the children who consumed at least half of the recommended daily intake of the formula demonstrated significant increases in height and weight, compared to children consuming the control supplement. Further, the group consuming the formula showed positive correlations between the amount of formula consumed per body weight and gains in height and weight (dose-response relation). No significant correlations were found in the control group.

For the following 6 months, the children who consumed at least half of the recommended daily intake of the formula continued to increase their height.

Finally, although the formula group showed significant improvements in both height and weight, there was no increase in body mass index (BMI, a measure of body fatness). This shows that growth was proportional, not obesogenic.

Findings from our clinical study clearly show that dietary supplementation with Nutritional Growth Solutions’ formula effectively and safely supports healthy growth in short and lean young children.

Our formula uses only ingredients that are safe, gluten-free, soy-free,
with no added hormones, to promote height growth in kids.

High-quality whey protein

Packed with 24 grams of protein in a daily recommended dose.

Supplemented with vitamins &
minerals

Includes nutrients that are needed to support growth but that are commonly deficient in children’s diets, such as vitamins A, C, and D, as well as calcium, iron, zinc, and potassium.

Includes L-arginine

Children with stunted growth have low circulating levels of arginine, an important amino acid. That’s why a daily serving of our formula includes 700 milligrams.
