How To Heal A Bruise Fast… with Food!

By Arielle Fierman

Banged up leg? Cut up arm? Stubbed toe?

No matter the cause of your bruise, assuming you’re not looking to make purple blotched skin a new trend (please don’t), you likely want a quick fix to heal that bruise of yours – especially as the warm weather has us baring more skin.

Heal a bruise without having to venture further than your kitchen by packing your diet with bruise-healing nutrients!

To heal a bruise quickly, load up on both Vitamin K (found in kale, parsley, collards, green beans, asparagus, spinach, and swiss chard), which promotes blood clotting and prevents abnormal bleeding, and Vitamin C (found in red peppers, grapefruits, strawberries, kiwi, and green leafy veggies), which synthesizes collagen and helps to strengthen blood vessels.
