Preparing your body for surgery should begin 4-8 weeks before your surgery date. Surgery puts stress on the body, and proper preparation can reduce stress on your body before and after surgery. The body has an incredible, innate ability to heal itself, but many factors contribute to a less than optimal recovery. Impacting your body's ability to heal are factors such as age, hormones, daily stressors, micronutrient deficiencies, environmental toxins, lack of exercise, poor diet, and above all, tobacco abuse. Smoking tobacco will often require double the healing time.
Taking steps before and after your surgery to alleviate stress and strengthen your immune system can improve your recovery and healing time. Research has found that taking a supplement that combines several antioxidant nutrients can do it nearly 20% faster. Let's take a look at the most crucial vitamins that aid in the role of healing:
- Vitamin C ( ascorbic acid) is required for the synthesis of collagen. It is also a highly effective antioxidant protecting cells from damage by free radicals. Studies have shown that the vitamin can help speed the healing process of wounds.
- Multitrace (zinc, copper, manganese, chromium, selenium) Multitrace helps maintain plasma levels of zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, and chromium and prevent deplete stores trace elements and subsequent deficiency symptoms.
- Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant containing the amino acid cysteine, needed for cellular production of energy and proper immune function. It helps remove free radicals from blood and cells before they can cause oxidative damage. Glutathione also aids in the neutralization of toxins in the liver.
- Vitamin B complex aids with cell proliferation and the maintenance of muscle tone and healthy skin. It also increases the metabolic rate and improves the function of the immune and nervous systems.
