Poster Presentation - Wounds Canada Virtual Conference & SAWC

In October and November 2020, Pure Life Science presented the following poster at the Wounds Canada Virtual Conference and Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Fall (SAWC Fall) respectively.

Current wound care has focused mostly on building a better dressing. Nutritional concerns are rarely considered. Skin is mainly composed of the Omega-6 fatty acid Linoleic Acid (LA) with minor amounts of Omega-3 alpha-linolenic Acid (ALA). Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) enhances production of PGE1 (prostaglandin E1) that enhances blood flow and is a potent anti-inflammatory. There is no DHA/EPA in the skin. Increased blood flow and oxygen transport are essential to proper wound healing.
