Thanks a lot. very informative article. I would like to ask a query here. is vitamin D useful to grow the height of children? As I have said that it help in absorption of calcium. ...so alongwith strenghtning of bones is it useful in overall growth? My son is 8 years old but his height is growing at a very lower rate. I am giving him calcium n iron. He ur also very active n having a good immune system . But I am very upset where his height is concerned. please suggest me something in that regard... thank you so much...
