At times, residents are ordered the combination of vitamin C and zinc for wound prevention and healing. The idea of using vitamin C as a supplement in wound healing has been discussed since 1937 when two Harvard medical school surgeons published an article concerning its use for this purpose. Since then, there have been some additional studies and opinion articles written on the topic, but there have been no well-powered, randomized, controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating whether the use of vitamin C (and also zinc) is efficient in helping wounds heal. This bears the question: is using this vitamin and mineral supplement combination for wound healing potentially beneficial?
