The result of this crossroad between medicine and nutrition, is a protein powder, blended into a delicious shake, which addresses nutritional growth delay in children. All the formulae developed by NGS uses ingredients which are safe, gluten-free as well as soy-free and includes no added hormones.
One serving of Healthy Heights® every day provides 24 grams of high-quality whey protein, which is required for growth. The powder also has nutrients which are generally deficient in children’s diets, such as vitamins A, C, and D, as well as calcium, iron, zinc, and potassium to trigger height gain.
NGS’ products also contain arginine, which is an important amino acid for children with stunted growth. A daily serving of NGS’ formula include 700 milligrams that boosts low-circulating levels of arginine in children.
