Typically, protein is used as a sport nutrition for muscle growth. But I need it for another reason. I was injured (lacerated skin wound). Physicians sometimes recommend to consume protein to promote skin healing.

But there are many different protein supplements. They are also different types of protein:

  • whey protein
  • multicomponent protein
  • casein protein
  • isolate protein
  • protein hydrolysate

Which of the different types of protein supplements are better suited to promote optimal healing of the skin after a lacerated wound rather than using them for muscle growth?

1 Answer 1


There are many natural things that are great for healing the skin that you should look into. I know many people who use a dermaroller but you can be in a different situation because of your skin or using essential oils on your skin but don't use too much.

You should probably ask a dermatologist because they can take a look at your skin and give you the best answer. Without seeing your skin nobody can give a definitive answer.
