Scientific research has supported the use of nutritional supplements for healthy bodies, however, many people don’t know that supplements can also speed and aid in healing. There is extensive research on how supplements such as omega-3 fish oils and proteins can help patients heal after surgery, trauma, or even during treatment for chronic illnesses (such as cancer). These same supplements can be utilized in Aesthetic medicine to speed healing after a treatment or procedure with surgery, injections or lasers.
Featured Supplement: Regeneplex
As the body’s largest organ, skin protects us from the environment 24/7/365. Therefore, as we go about our day, it is constantly exposed to ultraviolet radiation, free radicals and other irritants that cause it to break down. Over time skin must endure the combined effects of these environmental elements as we go through the natural aging process. The skin functions as a barrier to negative environmental factors. Nutrition can influence the proper functioning of the skin and, therefore, can have an impact on how our skin looks and heals as we age.
Regeneplex is a systemic skin health product that works like a multivitamin to support the body’s natural tissue-healing processes. In a clinical study conducted by Dr. Dayan, taking Regeneplex for nine months improved the appearance of skin as rated by the study of subjects and decreased the number of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye socket area.*
Regeneplex targets the skin, circulatory system, digestive system, and other cellular structures and functions. As opposed to topical treatments, Regeneplex is a supplement that works from the inside out to create a foundation for healthy skin and body. It can work to support skin elasticity, luminance, and help with fine lines (such as the ones that appear around the eyes).
Just like a multivitamin, Regeneplex contains many different vitamins and minerals that help keep you healthy:
Multizyme: contains digestive enzymes to support breakdown of complex nutrients such as protein and starch. Enzymatic supplementation is designed to complement the body’s enzyme production, and compensate for common barriers to optimal digestion, like native enzyme deficiencies, age, excessive stress and illness.
Cartenoids: provide support against free radicals, skin reddening and photo aging.
Buckwheat: supports cellular protection from free radicals and decreased capillary fragility. Both buckwheat flour from the plant seed and buckwheat juice from the plant’s leaves and stems provide plant chemicals linked to cellular protection from free radicals.
Zinc and Vitamin C: supports collagen creation and healthy connective tissue. Zinc is abundant in the top two layers of our skin, the epidermis and the dermis, as well as in connective tissue. Vitamin C plays an essential role in supporting collagen creation.
B Vitamins and Coenzyme Q10: support the body’s energy pathways and B Vitamins also support digestion and circulatory system, both vital to proper delivery of nutrients throughout the body.
Tuna Oil: supports healthy skin, hair and nails.
