Most of us never give a second thought to the healing process, we get an injury and it heals up; simple. What we neglect to appreciate is just how complex and well orchestrated the healing process actually is. If any step along the way is defective or interrupted the healing process can become delayed and problems can ensue.Tissue healing requires good nutrition. Even minor injuries places demands on the body to supply and deliver adequate building blocks to maximise and optimise the healing process and ultimately produce a well healed wound. Delay in wound healing can be associated with opportunistic infections, cause unnecessary scar formation, impede function and cause additional emotional stress as well as delaying over all recovery.Diet plays a viral role and needs to include enough calories, proteins and nutrients. ST-Repair has been formulated to supplement the diet of those recovering from injury or boost the nutritional status if those preparing for surgery. Its ingredients have a long and well documented key role to play in the healing process and use along side a healthy diet ensures that all the basic repair materials are in adequate supply to support the bodies natural healing mechanisms.L-Arginine.L-Arginine is important amino acid found in many protein foods. It’s a vital ingredient for the production of proteins structures needed for repair and a strong healed wound. Supplements containing L-Arginine have been shown to promote collagen production and accelerate the healthy healing of many kinds.L-Glutamine.The amino acid L-Glutanine is needed for optimal collagen production. Using a supplement containing L-glutanine saves the body from mobilising it from muscle tissue and ensures a ready and adequate supply for the healing process.Zinc.Slow to heal wounds have been shown to improve with the use of additional zinc and by increasing the intake of key zinc foods such as fish, eggs and shellfish.Vitamin C & Beta carotene.These nutrients are needed for collagen production and immune support. Poor healed wounds and wound infection are associated with low vitamin C levels or intake. The same can be said about vitamin A but this nutrient should only be taken in the form of beta carotene to avoid potential toxic side effects that can occur with excessive vitamin A intake.
