Surgery (and Post-surgical recovery)

Surgery (and Post-surgical recovery)

Once surgery is completed, certain nutrients can help speed wound healing and improve your health and immune status, which are all important considerations for post-surgical recovery.

Supplement Considerations

High Potency Multiple Vitamin and Mineral
A high potency multiple vitamin and mineral should contain all vitamins and minerals from Vitamin A to Zinc, many of which are required for wound healing and to replenish nutrients depleted from the stress of surgery. This supplement is also enriched with antioxidants and B-50 complex, which are also important

Essential Fatty Acids
An essential fatty acids should contain the perfect mixture of essential fats required to make prostaglandins series 1 and series 3, which help to minimize inflammation and support the healing process within many tissues.

Nutrients Enhancing Glutathione
A nutrients enhancing glutathione should contain natural agents proven to boost glutathione levels. Glutathione is required as a cellular antioxidant and participates in important detoxification reactions. It protects liver, kidney and nerve cells. Glutathione is depleted by stress (including the stress of surgery) and should be replenished and bolstered during the post-surgical recovery period.

Whey Protein and Fiber Shake
A whey protein and fiber shake contains 25 gms of whey protein per serving. Whey protein is the most biological superior protein to repair and rebuild lean mass, including muscle, connective tissue and many protein-based cellular components. Whey protein can help speed repair and healing in the post-surgical period and its high cysteine content helps to support immune function.
