Role of key ingredients:
Macronutrients: Adequate amounts of macronutrients such as fats, carbohydrates and proteins are included to assist in the development, maintenance and growth of new body tissues and faster wound repair.
Collagen: Increases the amino acid pool thereby accelerates wound healing, skin growth and tissue formation.
Omega 3 6 fatty acids: Reduce inflammation and boost immune response for faster wound healing.
Glutamine Arginine: Boost immune responsiveness and assist in chronic wound healing. Dietary supplementation with Arginine has been shown to enhance protein metabolism, helping to decrease muscle loss, and collagen synthesis, which helps to increase the strength of the wound.
Arginine is also effective in healing chronic ulcers in people with diabetes (ultimately helping to reduce leg amputations).
Vitamins and minerals: Vitamin A, C and E along with Zinc act as antioxidants, stimulate collagen synthesis and reduce injury to the wound by controlling excessive free radicals, thereby the vitamins and minerals have a well-established role in wound care and promote quick healing of wound in diabetic foot ulcer.
