Bruises indicate that the delicate blood vessels and capillaries beneath the skin have been broken. A speedy recovery and prevention can be made with the right nutrients.
• Witch hazel applied topically on the skin is great for speeding recovery from bruising.
• Arnica reduces the shock associated with injury, and helps to encourage healing of bruises.
• Vitamin C and bioflavonoids are necessary supplementation, especially if you bruise easily.
• Bilberry strengthens the capillary walls, reducing bruising and supplies the body with anti-oxidants.
