Abstract

There are many micronutrients and macronutrients required by the body for repairs. The type of injury, whether it be cutaneous, a burn, an accident, or after surgery, and the degree of the injury alter the time it takes to heal. There are three stages of healing: inflammatory, proliferative, and maturation. Each stage requires different nutrients to use in the process of healing. Macronutrients required include carbohydrates, fats, and protein. Micronutrients include vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, zinc, and iron. Besides the micronutrients and macronutrients required for healing, there are many plants, herbs, and other bioactive foods that increase the effects of healing and decrease the time it takes to heal. Some of these plants, herbs, and bioactive foods include honey, bromelain, Achillea millefolium, Centella asiatica, Arnebia densiflora, and Aloe vera.
