Magical properties of Vitamin C/ Post surgery Healing Tips

Worrying about healing after a surgery?

Vitamin C is another nutrient critical to wound healing. It’s responsible for making connective tissue, and it acts as a powerful antioxidant. Since surgical trauma causes an increase in the body’s metabolic rate, vitamin C levels can drop. So, consuming up to 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C for up to one week after surgery can help expedite tissue repair.

A combination of food, juice and supplements can be used to attain this level. Prune juice or stewed prunes are an excellent addition to the diet, since prunes are high in vitamin C and can help relieve constipation that is a common side effect of drug therapy.
