Targeted NutrientsAuthor: Dr. Gordon Sasaki
To augment their health, many Americans are taking nutritional supplements on a routine basis. For many, whose diet is consistently lacking in essential vitamins and minerals, this could result in problems following surgery. Fruits and vegetables, which are limited in the typical diet, provide essential nutrients that are particularly important to surgical patients undergoing anesthesia, trauma, and wound healing. While our bodies have remarkable innate mechanisms for healing, the efficiency of this process diminishes as we age. For this reason, older patients are more susceptible to wound healing problems.
Today patients are using nutritional supplements to enhance overall health and wellness, and increasingly to help maintain a healthy complexion, moisturization and hydration of skin, anti-aging formula, menopause formula, as well as targeted nutrients to support surgery.
