Natural Support For Tissue Trauma

Bruises are caused by trauma and result in a blue-purple accumulation of blood beneath the skin that becomes yellow as it begins to fade. In some people, bruises develop so easily that the person may not know how they got the bruise. In this case, the bruising is often due to a fragility of the blood vessels. Abnormal blood clotting may also be a cause.

Diet And Lifestyle Recommendations

  • Eat a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables. These foods contain vitamin C and bioflavonoids which strengthen blood vessels.
    Even minor deficiencies of vitamin C can lead to easy bruising.

Primary Support

  • Maxi Multi: 3 caps, 3 times per day with meals. Optimal doses (not minimal doses) of Vitamin, C, E and bioflavonoids are especially important.
  • Maxi Greens: 3 caps, 3 times per day with meals for additional broad-spectrum plant flavonoids.

Additional Support

For Trauma-caused bruises:

  • Bromelain: 1 capsule, 3-4 times daily between meals. Bromelain also helps the soreness of a bruise resolve faster.

To strengthen blood vessels: (Either or both, especially if Maxi Greens are not being taken).

  • Grape Seed Extract: (50-100mg) 1 cap, 3 times per day with meals. [Target dose: 150-300mg].
  • Bilberry: 1 cap, 2-3 times per day with meals.
