Skin ulcers that are slow healing can present problems for both the diabetic and the bedridden. The epidemic numbers of diabetics and the growing aging population who are bedridden present an ever increasing number of people afflicted with non-healing skin ulcers. Clinical research would suggest that the amino acid l-glutamine may help in healing skin ulcers for both these groups. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and in times of physical stress is required in large amounts to repair any injury. L-Arginine is another amino acid that has been shown to help heal skin ulcers.
