Rehab Support Formula™, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a synergistic and comprehensive combination of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, herbals, and other nutrients, carefully formulated and specifically designed to support optimal tissue healing that follows injury.
Studies show that a high percentage of adults in North America and other developed countries eat less than the minimum daily allowance of 10 or more essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and proper balance of these nutrients are needed not only for maintaining good health, but also for the dietary management of the body’s structure as well as the optimum functioning of its various processes, including healing. Rehab Support Formula™ has been carefully developed to contain the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and other nutrients without danger of toxic build-up or of side effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and long-term safety. Certain nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and B-complex vitamins are included in high-potency amounts because of the vital roles they play in antioxidant protection, energy production and maintenance of healthy blood cells, nervous system, hormonal balance, and more. Minerals and trace elements are provided in their safest and most bioavailable forms.
Rehab Support Formula™ contains not only the base formula of Douglas Laboratories’ Ultra-Specific Nutrition 2000 Series™ that offers intensive support for the healthy functioning of the body in general, but also a blend of herbs and additional nutrients specifically formulated to expedite the healing process that follows injury to tissue structure and function. Rehab Support Formula™ provides a broad spectrum of synergistic proteolytic (protein-specific) enzymes: bromelain, trypsin and chymotrypsin. Proteolytic enzymes, also called proteases, arecontinuously active in reshaping the tissues throughout the body. Trypsin and chymotrypsin also participate in the normal wound healing process. They help remove cellular debris, blood clots and scar tissue, thus facilitating the re-growth of healthy tissue. In addition to proteolytic enzymes, Rehab Support Formula™ provides several nutritional cofactors that have important biochemical roles in normal wound healing. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids have functions in the formation and maintenance of healthy connective tissue. Zinc is important for normal immune function. Manganese as well as hydroxyapatite, mucopolysaccharides, and chondroitin sulfate are involved in bone and cartilage repair. Bromelain, a protease from the pineapple plant, reduces the production of proinflammatory prostaglandins by modulating the arachidonate cascade. Its modulation of normal inflammatory processes may reduce the discomfort associated with injuries. Similar action is provided by chamomile and capsicum.
Rehab Support Formula™ may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support the healthy healing of their structure and function of their injured tissue.
