Trace Minerals Beneficial for Burns

Twenty-one patients (mean age, 35 years) with burns on a mean of 45% of body surface area were randomly assigned to receive daily intravenous infusions of either 1) zinc, copper, and selenium, or placebo.

Burn patients have trace mineral deficiencies, due largely to large cutaneous losses of these and other nutrients. The severe depression of immune function seen in burn patients may be due in part to these mineral deficiencies. The results of the present study indicate that intravenous administration of zinc, copper, and selenium can improve clinical outcome in patients with severe burns, including fewer pulmonary infections and better wound healing.

Read details of this trace mineral burn study.
