functioning and wound healing. Also required for
bone development.
Vitamin K & Zinc: Aids in clotting factor; An
important mineral used in enzymatic reactions
involved in tissue and wound healing (i.e.
collagen production), regeneration and repair.
Zinc also functions as an antioxidant in tissues.
Calcium: is a mineral that is necessary for life.
In addition to building bones and keeping them
healthy, calcium helps our blood clot, nerves
send messages and muscles contract.
