CLINICAL UPDATE: Supplement Cocktail in Randomized Trial Made Trauma Wounds Heal Twice as Fast
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 20 trauma patients were given oral antioxidants (vitamin A, C, E, zinc, selenium and glutamine) or placebo for two weeks. Time to wound closure in the supplemented group was five weeks while it took 10 weeks for wound closure to occur in the placebo group. Interestingly, the authors noted that “despite normal plasma levels, intracellular deprivation may occur,” indicating that intracellular measures of nutrients were more clinically relevant than serum levels.

CLINICAL UPDATE: Office Workers Gain Energy When Given Vitamin C at Work
A double-blind randomized trial on 141 healthy volunteers aged 20-49 years old was performed in which one group received 10 grams of vitamin C intravenously while a placebo group received saline intravenously. Fatigue scores, oxidative stress and plasma vitamin C and side effects were all measured. Fatigue levels, at two hours and one day post supplementation, were significantly reduced in the group receiving vitamin C, especially in those whose initial vitamin C levels were particularly low. No major side effects were reported in either group. (Nutrition Journal, January 2012)
