Israeli invention fights stunted growth in children

(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) A new dietary supplement developed at Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Israel has successfully helped children in the bottom 10th percentile for height and weight grow taller and gain weight. The supplement, named Up-Pro, will be available in stores in the near future. Studies show that children who took the supplement grew 1-2 centimeters (0.4-0.8 inches) taller than the control group, who were given placebos. The children’s height-to-weight ratio was not affected, and the additive did not cause anyone to become overweight. Schneider Children’s Medical Center is currently studying the effects of the supplement on girls who begin taking it at age 10 and boys who begin at age 11. Each gender has its own version of the supplement.
