Wound Healing Stack

General Health 599 SupplementDoctor
Repair the damage to your skin and other soft tissues by caring for affected areas and focusing on your overall health. Wound healing,a dynamic process of replacing devitalized and missing cellular structures and tissue layers, consists of 4 phases. This includes the hemostasis phase, the inflammatory ohase, the proliferation phase, and the remodeling phase. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

0.00 ,,,,,,
Carnosine, a small molecule composed of the amino acids histidine and alanine, appears to promote wound healing.
0.00 ,,,,,,
Topically applied calendula can be used to speed wound healing.
0.00 ,,,,,,
Alginic acid is one of the main constituents in bladderwrack. Calcium alginate has shown promise as an agent to speed wound healing.
0.00 ,,,,,,
Arginine appears to improve wound healing by increasing protein synthesis.
400 iu ,,,,,,
400 IU daily. Supplementing with vitamin E may enhance healing and prevent adhesion formation after surgery, applied topically, the vitamin may help prevent scarring.
25000 iu ,,,,,,
Take under medical supervision: 25,000 IU daily. Vitamin A plays a central role in wound healing and may be useful as a supplement or in a topical ointment.
10 gOrnithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate ,,,,,,
10 to 30 grams daily. Supplementing with OKG has been shown to significantly improve wound healing and decrease the length of hospital stays.
1 ,,,,,,
1% solution for ears. Topically applied hyaluronic acid is sometimes used in skin wound dressings to improve healing.
0.00 ,,,,,,
Apply topically. Horse chestnut contains a compound called aescin that acts as an anti-inflammatory and reduces swelling after trauma, particularly sports injuries, surgery, and head injury.
60 mg ,,,,,,
Take a standardized herbal extract providing 60 mg total triterpenoids once or twice per day. Applying an ointment containing gotu kola may speed healing of skin wounds.
2 mg ,,,,,,
2 to 4 mg daily. Copper plays a role in the strengthening of connective tissue and may help promote wound healing.
2 ,,,,,,
Apply an ointment containing 2% chamomile extract or standardized for chamazulene and bisabolol content three to four times daily. Topically applied chamomile can be used to speed wound healing.
0.00 ,,,,,,
Apply stabilized gel three to five times daily. Aloe has been shown to decrease inflammation, promote cellular repair, and facilitate wound healing.
30 mg ,,,,,,
30 mg daily (with 2 mg copper daily to prevent depletion), or apply topical zinc preparations regularly. Zinc is a component of enzymes needed to repair wounds, and even a mild deficiency can interfere with optimal recovery from everyday tissue damage.
1 g ,,,,,,
1 to 3 grams daily. Taking vitamin C may promote connective tissue repair.
0 Vitamin B-Complex ,,,,,,
Follow label directions. Thiamine (vitamin B1), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and other B vitamins have all been shown to play a role in wound healing. For this reason, some healthcare practitioners recommend a high-potency B vitamin supplement to promote wound healing.
3000 ,,,,,,
3,000 MCU (2,000 GDU) three times per day for several days, followed by 2,000 MCU three times per day. Taking bromelain may help reduce swelling and speed the healing time for surgical wounds and soft tissue injuries.

Potential Interactions
Intake of large amounts of vitamin C can deplete the body of copper—an essential nutrient. People should be sure to maintain adequate copper intake at higher intakes of vitamin C. Copper is found in many multivitamin-mineral supplements.

Studies in animals and humans suggest that supplementation with large amounts of either vitamin C or vitamin E increases the requirement for the other nutrient.

Vitamin E appears to increase intestinal absorption and tissue uptake of vitamin A. Because of this effect, some doctors have used the combination of vitamin E and vitamin A for various skin conditions that are usually treated with vitamin A alone. The addition of vitamin E improved outcomes, while allowing for lower (and safer) doses of vitamin A.

Supplementation with zinc, iron, or the combination has been found to improve vitamin A status among children at high risk for deficiency of the three nutrients. This interaction has only been shown in a developing country with higher incidence of multiple deficiencies.
  • Muñoz EC, Rosado JL, Lopez P, et al. Iron and zinc supplementation improves indicators of vitamin A status of Mexican preschoolers. Am J Clin Nutr 2000;71:789-94.
Zinc competes for absorption with copper  and inhibits copper absorption. Copper deficiency can result in anemia, lower levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol, neurological disorders, and cardiac arrhythmias. Copper intake should be increased if zinc supplementation continues for more than a few days (except for people with Wilson’s disease). Some sources recommend a 10:1 ratio of zinc to copper. Evidence suggests that no more that 2 mg of copper per day is needed to prevent zinc-induced copper deficiency. Many zinc supplements include copper in the formulation to prevent zinc-induced copper deficiency. Zinc-induced copper deficiency has been reported to cause reversible anemia and suppression of bone marrow. In addition, there are case reports of neurologic abnormalities due to copper deficiency occurring in people who had been using large amounts of certain widely available denture creams that contained high concentrations of zinc.
