Vitamin A May Add Height

INDONESIA--A deficiency in vitamin A has been linked with stunting growth in preschool children. In the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN), a new study was done to examine the effects of vitamin A supplements on the height of Indonesian children, ages 6 to 48 months. The results showed that a high dose of vitamin A was found to moderately affect height by .21 cm within a four-month period.
