In brief: Collagen

Collagen is a vital part of the connective tissue of the body.
It's main component is of protein. Eating a healthy diet with adequate protein would be the most important thing that you can do to insure healthy healing. Recommendations for specific micronutrients are easy to make by looking at the components of collagen or how it is made, but evidence of specific benefits would be lacking.

In brief: Colostrum

Colostrum (first cow milk) extracts helps build collagen locally using hyaluronic acid or taking the same orally helps this.
