Thank you for your query.

You can give Bestozyme to improve your son's digestion. However do not expect that to increase the height. Remaining fit and healthy is more important.

The final height of an individual depends on a number of factors:
1. Genetic.
2. Hormonal.
3. Nutritional.
4. Environment.
The heights of parents and grand-parents have a bearing on the final height of a child due to genetic factors. Improved nutrition makes a difference in the final height.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction Please feel free to revert back in case you require any clarifications or would like to share more facts.

Wishing your son all the best.
