The worst part of surgery is NEVER the surgery itself.
It’s what happens after the procedure!
In some cases, you might feel GREAT when your first come to. Maybe the “happy juice” is still doing its thing.
Then, the next day, it hits you. Hard.
You’re lame… drained… and in pain…
Suffering from the aftereffects of the drugs… the anesthesia… and the operation itself.
You’d like nothing more than a shortcut out of this mess -- and today, that’s EXACTLY what I’ve got!
New research finds it has the power to SPEED your recovery… and ENHANCE your healing!
Surgery this summer?
Hospitals and outpatient clinics have turned YOUR BODY into a profit center… pushing operations for everything imaginable.
And now, with stuff opening back up, they’re making up for lost time -- trying to get people in to have those operations to stop the hemorrhaging from their bank accounts after taking a couple months off.
Let me give ya 2 tips here…
- RECONSIDER whether you truly need that surgery. A lot of those operations are about making quick cash… NOT improving your health. Many common procedures, from meniscus to spinal fusion, are practically scams. Do a little research and get a second opinion before going under the knife.
- SAIL through your post-op recovery. If you DO need surgery, then get yourself something that a recent study shows can help.
They’re called roburins – and you’re not gonna believe where they come from.
Do you like wine? Oak-aged booze? Even fancy-schmancy “barrel” beers?
Well, then, you’ve already had some roburins… because it’s a compound from oak that often gets into the liquor, beer and wine in barrel-aged drinks.
Now, I wish I could prescribe a bottle of booze for your post-op success. How fun would that be???
Unfortunately, you won’t get much from drinking…
But you can get healthy oak compounds… such as ellagitannins, roburins and other flavonoids… from a special supplement called Robuvit, a natural extract from French oak wood.
And to understand how it works, you need to take a couple steps back… and think about what actually happens on the operating table.
Surgery is a trauma to your body.
As far as IT knows, you’ve just been ASSAULTED – and it responds like it does to any other kind of serious injury.
It RUSHES out inflammation. And that, in turn, leads to oxidative stress and free radical damage.
Enter Robuvit… a powerful antioxidant that can help tamp down that response, so your body can recover more EFFICIENTLY… more EFFECTIVELY… and more COMPLETELY.
In a new 8-week study, women given 300 mg of Robuvit per day after a hysterectomy saw their oxidative stress levels rise by just 6%… while women given a placebo saw it jump by 57%.
That’s a difference of nearly 10X!
Now, nobody can SEE or FEEL oxidative stress… but those ladies could certainly see and feel what happened next!
After taking Robuvit, the women could perform physical tasks BETTER… and engage MORE in social activity.
They even got a BUMP in energy and mood!
And those changes occurred during the CRITICAL 4 weeks post-surgery.
The placebo group didn’t even come CLOSE to those improvements. In fact, their physical task function DROPPED!
See, when oxidative stress levels jump, cells get damaged and die off… and your body’s own internal repair system can’t keep up.
But Robuvit is one way to keep oxidative stress in check… and free radicals under control!.
This study looked specifically at ONE type of surgery… but there’s a good chance it’ll work about the same for other forms of surgical trauma and more.
In 2018, researchers found Robuvit helped to manage lymphedema -- a complication that can strike after breast cancer surgery and get severe enough to require MORE surgery.
So, if you’re going under the knife… talk to your doc about trying this stuff during your recovery.
You can find Robuvit online and in some vitamin shops…
But depending on what you’ll use it for, you may want it not on its own but as part of a more complex formula to manage free radical damage, oxidative stress, and recovery.
It’ll cost a little more than the Robuvit on its own, but it’ll be well worth the extra scratch.
