VitaMedica VitaminsPosted on July 31, 2007 | by Boston Plastic Surgery
VitaMedica was founded by a physician who recognized that patients want a health care professional to work with them to devise a personal plan for health and wellness. VitaMedica utilizes nutraceuticals, combinations of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, to provide support for surgery, healing, wellness, and age management.
The surgery supplements created by VitaMedica allow patients to be proactive in their healing process. In this day and age, we are greatly affected by time and feel pressure to speed up the recovery process after surgery. VitaMedica offers comprehensive program kits and individual supplements that are designed to help speed up the recovery process. Each product is tailored to meet the varying needs of different surgical patients, and the easy-to-use products ensure compliance and excellent results.
Surgery patients also benefit from the optimal nutrition provided by the surgery supplements. Although many patients take nutritional supplements in increasing amounts, their use around the time of surgery is not always desirable. VitaMedica’s surgery supplements have been specially formulated to eliminate any nutrients that may have an adverse effect and provide nutrients essential to internal wound care by enhancing the body’s natural mechanisms for repair and healing.
VitaMedica’s age management supplements actively manage the aging process. These supplements aid in extending a patients health span the number of healthy years that one can expect to live. The age management nutraceuticals are specifically formulated to maintain health, wellness, and beauty. There are also supplements targeted to specific skin issues, such as acne, and aging of the skin as a result of free radical damage.
What are free radicals?
Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons. They can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. After they are formed, these highly reactive radicals can elicit a chain reaction, similar to falling dominoes. When they react with important cellular components, like DNA, or the cell membrane, they may damage them and cause the cells to function poorly or die. However, our bodies have a defense mechanism, known as antioxidants, to minimize or eliminate free radicals from damaging healthy cells.
Antioxidants can safely interact with free radicals and stop the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged. While our bodies have a number of enzyme systems that scavenge free radicals, the principle vitamin antioxidants are vitamin E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. Another member of this group is Selenium, a trace metal that is required for proper function of one of the body’s antioxidant enzyme systems. Unfortunately, the body cannot manufacture these micronutrients so they must be supplied in the diet.
VitaMedica products help replenish the body’s supply of micronutrients, essential to cellular health.
