Thorne Research, Traumogen, 180 Veggie Caps (Discontinued Item)
- Dietary Supplement
When you experience physical trauma – whether from an accidental injury or a planned surgical procedure – you want to heal as quickly as possible with the least amount of swelling, bruising, and scarring. Healing requires an intricate interplay of blood cells, growth factors, and biochemical mediators. Nutritional support can help promote tissue repair and mitigate specific nutritional deficiencies that can delay the healing process.
The nutrients and botanicals in Traumogen promote tissue regeneration and support wound healing. The amino acid glutamine is used by white blood cells within the wound for reproduction and growth of cells and tissue, and as a source of energy. Because optimal functioning of the white blood cells is paramount to the healing process, glutamine is a necessary component of tissue repair.
Glucosamine sulfate is included in Traumogen because of its ability to increase the body's production of hyaluronic acid, an important biochemical component of the extracellular matrix – the "glue" that holds tissues together.
Vitamin C is a cofactor for the synthesis of collagen and other organic components of the extracellular matrix. Vitamin C also provides important antioxidant activity and has been shown to support immune function. The combined effects of vitamin C on connective tissue synthesis, antioxidant status, and immune function make it an important nutrient for wound repair in individuals who have experienced physical trauma. Other nutrients that support tissue regeneration and repair include vitamin B6 and the minerals zinc, copper, and manganese.
