Forté Trauma – Wound Healing Supplement
Forté Trauma offers nutritional support and supplementation to those recovering from traumatic incidents and injuries.
- Includes essential vitamins and minerals to promote complete healing
- Provides probiotics and antioxidants to boost immunity
- Reduces the impact traumatic injury has on the body
Trauma and injury trigger the body’s stress response, decreasing immunity, increasing inflammation and increasing stress hormone levels. These consequences significantly increase the body’s requirement for protein and other essential vitamins and minerals, which are needed to fuel the recovery process.
Forté Trauma contains a physician-formulated, research-based blend of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements that help to support immune system function, tissue repair and wound healing. Each of these nutrients is provided at doses that have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical research studies.

Vitamin A: plays a vital role in immune function, bone growth, and the health of skin cells.
Vitamin C: needed for the growth and repair of tissues in the body.
Vitamin D: vital to maintaining normal calcium and phosphorus blood levels needed for strong, healthy bones.
Vitamin K: contributes to the regular, normal process of blood clotting when required by the body. Also affects the cycle of healthy bone turnover.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin): aids in the breakdown and use of carbohydrates and amino acids, thus creating energy for physical activity.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): without B2, your body would not be able to produce energy as effectively.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin): Similar to Vitamin B2, B3 helps the body produce energy and maintain other important functions.
Vitamin B6: helps metabolize amino acids and glycogen.
Folic Acid: helps produce and maintain healthy blood cells, allowing the blood to carry oxygen throughout the body and fight infection.
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin): important factor for normal blood cell formation and brain/nerve functions.
Biotin: plays a key role in the metabolism of lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates, and other enzymatic reactions.
Vitamin B5 (Panthothenic Acid): essential in energy production and storing fats.
Calcium: component of teeth and bones, important for the contraction of muscles, and plays a role in proper nerve function.
Iron: important in maintaining healthy blood cells and carrying oxygen to all parts of the body.
Phosphorus: involved in essentially every transfer of energy within the body. Also a component of bone and teeth enamel.
Iodine: crucial in the synthesis of thyroid hormones.
Magnesium: helps many (hundreds in fact) enzymes function properly, assisting with body energy production, DNA production, and others.
Zinc: is found in most cells in the body. It is used by the body to make proteins and DNA. The body uses zinc to grown and develop appropriately and has been shown to accelerate wound healing.
Selenium: a component of many of the body’s protective antioxidants.
Copper: plays an important role in red blood cell formation.
Manganese: critical in the breakdown of carbohydrates, amino acids, and cholesterol.
Chromium: essential part of metabolic processes that regulate blood sugar and in the conversion from glucose into energy.
Sodium: an essential nutrient that helps to regulate blood volume and blood pressure.
Potassium: essential for the function of all living cells. Plays an important role in regulation of fluids and hydration.
L-Arginine: stimulates wound healing and helps to fight infections.
L-Glutamine: shown to restore cellular energy stores, helps in the synthesis of new bone structure, and has antibacterial properties.
L-Lysine: helps with calcium absorption and helps increase the amount of calcium stored in bones.
Strontium: helps make your bones stronger and reduce the risk of fractures.
Taurine: important for brain, retinal, and muscle tissue integrity and function.
Glucosamine: a basic building block for healthy joint cartilage and may delay the long-term progression of knee osteoarthritis. Has been shown to reduce joint damage and improve knee function.
Quercetin: has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that boost the immune system. Also shown to reduce the intensity of knee pain in people with arthritis.
Bromelain: a pineapple enzyme with pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties that can help to relieve mild knee pain.
Chondroitin: an important structural component of cartilage. Has been shown to reduce pain in patients with osteoarthritis.
Coenzyme Q10: shown promise in the treatment of a number of medical conditions such as congestive heart failure, chest pain, high blood pressure, nerve damage, Parkinson’s disease, and others.
Lactowise Probiotic Blend: helpful in restoring normal gastrointestinal flora.
Orthosilic Acid: shown to be effective in supporting bone formation and may be helpful in preventing osteoporosis.
Boron: important for building strong bones, aids in strengthening muscles, and improves mental processing and muscle coordination.
