February 2022 - Wound Healing

 

Effective wound healing is best achieved in a person who is well-nourished. The healing process is an intense cellular process that requires energy, nutrients and good vascular flow. Inadequacy in any of these areas will slow down the healing process. Protein intake is absolutely essential for wound healing. To rebuild damaged tissue, the body requires the amino acids found in protein.

There are other additional nutritional agents which can help to facilitate wound healing. Vitamin C has been shown to encourage collagen formation and effective wound healing. Vitamin A and zinc also help support the cross-linking of collagen for effective wound healing. And the plant enzyme bromelain helps to speed wound healing by digesting damaged tissue and reducing pain.

However, wound healing definitely will be jeopardized if there is impaired blood flow to the wound area. Nitric oxide (NO) is one of the most important cardiovascular regulators in the human body. By enhancing NO, blood flow and oxygen delivery can be increased throughout the body, which will
improve wound healing. However, illness and disease can impair NO production, and ultimately, effective wound healing.
