Lots of oxygen in your body also is important for the healing process. Iron is the ‘transportation vehicle’ that delivers oxygen to the body cells.
The importance of oxygen in wound healing cannot be overstated. It is involved in a variety of biological processes, including cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and protein synthesis, all of which are necessary for tissue function and integrity restoration. Adequate wound tissue oxygenation can trigger healing responses and help other treatment modalities work better.
Eat high quality iron-rich foods like beef, broccoli and apricots to make sure you’re getting enough.
