Adjuvia Bedsore Cream Technical References and FAQ


Adjuvia Bedsore Cream brings a novel treatment to bed sores and wounds  that for the first time addresses the true etiology of these maladies. This patented high bioavailability, lipid rich nano emulsified astaxanthin is both a healing and an antimicrobial agent.

Wounds go through several progressive stages in the process of healing. For instance, in a burn, the tissue damage can increase for up to a week before healing begins. During this time there are strong inflammatory processes and “cleaning” that takes place. Healing begins after the inflammation stage has finished, puss is cleaned up, exemplified by the elimination of the foul smell.

Highly bioavailable astaxanthin facilitates both processes.

In their paper, Oxidative stress and acute-phase response in patients with pressure sores Bernarda et al (Nutrition, Volume 21, Issue 9, September 2005, Pages 901-90) report:

“Patients with pressure sores and acute infection present a systemic inflammatory response accompanied by an increase in lipid peroxidation that is associated with decreased serum ascorbic acid and α-tocopherol levels, suggesting that these patients may be at risk for important nutritional deficiencies.”

Those who suffer from pressure or bed sores, also generally suffer from mitochondrial dysfunction. The healing mechanisms are part of the immune system, and the failure of the immune system to operate in a healthy way leads to chronic conditions including pressure sores. Mitochondrial dysfunction can be ameliorated by administering an anti-microbial which is an adjuvant targeting the mitochondria and mitigating ROS.

This diminished immune response and retarded wound healing sets up conditions for long term infection which further inhibits the healing process, exemplified by a malodor and puss.  To treat bed sores, we first need to clean up the infections and then fuel energy and constituents so the immune system can function effectively to heal the wound.

1) When should I see results? 

After 4-7 days, puss flow should slow down and stop, and the foul order will diminish and disappear. This is due to the strong anti-microbial power of Adjuvia Astaxanthin.   At the same time, the astaxanthin is powering up the cells to begin healing.

Then after another week one will observe signs of healing, which can go on for several weeks. 

2) Is it safe?  Any toxicity or side effects? 

Adjuvia Bedsore Cream is generally recognized as safe, based on judgements made by the FDA and other agencies. Technical reference here. 

3) Is there proof of the anti-microbial and healing properties of astaxanthin?  

There are several powerful active materials in our bedsore cream, characterized in the scientific literature here. 

4) What are the active materials? 

The primary active ingredients are Adjuvia Astaxanthin and Lavender Oil carried in a base cream commonly used in cosmetics. 

6) Can it be used with latex and nitrile gloves?

Yes. The latex and nitrile glove industry has widely tested these materials.

    7) Who manufactures Adjuvia Bed Sore Cream? 

    Sustainable Nutrition Inc located in Jefferson City, TN.  designed and manufactured under cGMP practices.

    8) Does it stain fabric? 

    We recommend covering the wound with a dressing to prevent contact with bed sheets, clothing and other fabrics.  In the event of a fabric stain,   apply a stain remover, wash with laundry detergent and use an electric/gas clothes dryer.
