Do Liquid Trace Minerals Help Cuts Heal?

Post by livingwell421 » Thu Feb 12, 2009 10:34 pm

A friend was telling me that {link removed} help cuts heal faster. I had a paper cut and he put some on and it stopped the bleeding, but how? And he said the minerals make the cells repair faster. Has anyone heard this or can back it up?

This looks like an attempt at spam. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. To answer your question though, no it looks like complete and total horse $h!7.

What about liquid vitamin E? Take a cap, puncture it and put it on the cut.

That's like saying that putting more gas in the tank will make the car go faster. Sorry. No luck on this one.

There are some minerals that can stop the bleeding, like Alum. It is very effective in stopping the bleeding. You could have been treated with its powder. But it does not cure the wound. It just seals the cuts. It is frequently used in India after Shaving, but it burns a lot.

Just use hydrogen peroxide and super glue if you want to seal a cut.
