Highlighted: 3 Ingredients in Caro-C that Speed Your Surgical Recovery

The time leading up to surgery and surgery itself are highly stressful on the mind and body, but the weeks — sometimes months — to follow can be even more difficult in terms of how surgery traumatizes the body, and in the recovery process itself.

The best way to help your body heal is to provide it with the nutrients it needs to rebuilt its cellular structures.

NutriPlex Formulas’ Caro-C comprises numerous foods that activate the body’s repair mechanisms to mend muscle fibers, skin tissues, cell walls (such as those involving capillaries, veins and arteries), and more.

Here’s a closer look at three of Caro-C’s food ingredients and their nutrient functions (for a quick look at healing properties of Caro-C’s ingredients, check out our infographic):

Shiitake Mushrooms

Shiitake Mushrooms are obviously a super food when their nutrients are taken into account. Because Shiitake protects the DNA from oxidative damage, it’s used by numerous healthcare profssionals to heal chromosomal damage caused by anti-cancer therapies. Additionally, shiitake mushrooms contain a medley of nutrients that raise energy levels, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation. Their high zinc content also improves skin healing.

Bilberry Leaf

Bilberry has a long history of usage and has become instrumental to surgical recovery. Bilberry has been shown to fortify blood vessels and capillary walls, as well as to stabilize collagen tissues — such as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The herb also promotes flexibility of red blood cells, and serves as a vasodilator.

Echinacea Purpurea Root

Well known in mainstream- and natural-healthcare circles as a go-to for immune system–support, Echinacea is powerful for its healing effects that range from the common cold to fighting cancer. In dealing with the aftermath of surgery, Echinacea fends off bacteria to prevent infection, helps stimulate the growth of new tissue, and fights inflammation.

Properly supporting the body’s healing processes is essential to not only a successful and speedy recovery, but to a system that protects against recurring damage and debilitating illness.

Caro-C provides solid nutritional support for recovery and defense.
