Nutricare Smarta Grow is clinically proven to support height growth for your kids after 2 months

Rate this post – Childhood stunting is the most common form of malnutrition occurring globally. Statistics from the National Nutrition Census of the Institute of Nutrition show that in Vietnam, 1 in 4 children is malnourished and stunted.

A child is defined as stunted when his height is less than 2 standard deviations (-2SD). Stunted children tend to get sick more often, do worse at school, and grow up in economically disadvantaged situations, making them susceptible to chronic diseases in adulthood.

Causes of malnutrition and stunting in young children?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), stunting is “an impairment in growth and development experienced by children due to poor nutrition, repeated infections, and psychosocial support”.

There is a typical confusion about genetic factors being the main cause of stunting in children. However, experts say that children’s physical growth is mainly influenced by nutrition, exercise and environment. A child’s height is only about 23% affected by genetic factors while nutrition accounts for 32%; movement and sports regime decides 20%; the remaining factors are living environment, chronic and congenital diseases, and rest regime.

Among them, nutritional factors can be affected by poor nutrition and health of the mother during pregnancy; inadequate nutrition for infants or complementary foods during the weaning period after 6 months of age; in addition, it may be due to repeated infections leading to decreased immunity.

How to prevent malnutrition and stunting?

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that babies should be exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months, and should be given solid foods from 6 months of age combined with breastfeeding until 2 years of age and beyond. Children under 5 years old need to be provided with complete and balanced nutrition to help them develop physically and mentally. One of the most important nutrients for optimal growth in height of children is the trio of Calcium, Vitamin K2 and D3.

Calcium – “The key” for healthy bones  

Calcium is one of the most important components in bones and teeth, participating in the formation of bone cells and shaping the skeleton. For children who are in the height growth phase, properly supplementing calcium will help their bones become strong and develop so that their body can achieve the ideal stature..

Vitamin D – Support better absorption of nutrients in children  

Vitamin D is extremely important for children to have healthy bone development and support height growth. The two types of Vitamin D often mentioned are Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3, which help the body absorb Calcium and Phosphorus from food. Vitamin D2 is found in foods (milk, cheese, cooking oil, cookies, cereals…) or supplements. Vitamin D3 is synthesized by the body when exposed to sunlight.

Vitamin K2 allows transport of Calcium into bones 

Vitamin K2 is proven to help activate Osteocalcin – Protein that binds Calcium and transports it to bones, increasing bone mineral content, bone density, strengthening bones and supporting optimal height development in children.

Nutricare Smarta Grow comprehensively meets the needs of US FDA recommendations for outstanding stature of children.

Understanding the nutritional needs for optimal height growth in the first 5 years of children’s life, Nutricare Medical Nutrition Institute – USA (NMNI-USA) and Nutricare have successfully researched and developed the product Nutricare Smarta Grow. With an improved formula, it fully meets the calcium content recommended by the US FDA and is suitable for the physical condition of Vietnamese children. In particular, the product has been clinically proven to help children increase height after 2 months of use.

Dr. David Clark, Director of the Nutricare Medical Nutrition Institute – USA (NMNI-USA), commented that Calcium is the most important mineral for building strong bones and teeth. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that the daily calcium supplement for children from 1 to 3 years old is 700 mg/day and for children 4 years and older is 1,300 mg/day. A calcium-rich diet will help children grow taller, reducing the risk of developing osteoporosis, which can lead to bone fractures later.
