In brief: No

But, good nutrition in general helps your body heal itself.
Don't smoke. Often a hinged brace is recommended and reduce your activity while it's healing.

In brief: No

There are no supplements that have been proven to improve the rate of recovery from an mcl injury.
Proper nutrition and regular exercise, in combinatioon with avoiding excessive alcohol use, tobacco abuse, or obesity are factors associated with optimal healing, but not necessarily with healing faster than normal.
