Health Notes

Skin Ulcers

Skin Ulcers
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by some in the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

About This Condition

Skin ulcers are open sores that are often accompanied by the sloughing-off of inflamed tissue.

Skin ulcers can be caused by a variety of events, such as trauma, exposure to heat or cold, problems with blood circulation, or irritation from exposure to corrosive material. Pressure ulcers, also known as decubitus ulcers or bedsores, are skin ulcers that develop on areas of the body where the blood supply has been reduced because of prolonged pressure; these may occur in people confined to bed or a chair, or in those who must wear a hard brace or plaster cast. Skin ulcers may become infected, with serious health consequences. Other health conditions that can cause skin ulcers include mouth ulcers (canker sores), chronic venous insufficiency, diabetes, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.

        Comments about SENSIBILITY SOAPS Nourish Skin™ Organic Raw Shea Butter Intensive Moisturizer:

        So, this product is the first time I have ever purchased anything from GNC. I normally purchase my shea butter from another online source, but they were sold out, so I decided to try GNC's Organic Raw Shea Butter.

        When I received the order I was in disbelief; this product is not raw unrefined shea butter. The shea butter is white and has no smell; in its natural state, shea butter smells like nuts, and usually tends to be yellow. I decided to go ahead and keep this product because I wanted to see if it worked despite it being refined. Unfortunately, this product has done nothing for me, I have been using it on my feet exclusively for the last month and a half. My feet are now dry like the Sahara desert. I will not be purchasing this product again.

            I really wanted to like it, I was so excited when I purchased this, however I'm disappointed. I use it as a nightcream, but I'm not sure it ever soaks in. Sometimes I put it on at 7:00 pm, to give it time to soak in, but it never does. I'm convinced it all goes on my pillow when I go to bed. After further research, I've discovered this is refined shea butter, it isn't supposed to be as hard, and shouldn't have a white color, so I will search for unrefined shea butter, oh well.

                  Best Shea Butter I have bought. It doesn't have the strong smell that other shea butters have and it works great for my baby's skin and hair. Cheapest price around on GNCs website especialy if you have a coupon code or free shipping through Shoprunner.

                  I had been to 5 or 6 dermatoligists over the years with little or no success for excema. A friend suggested this cream and it brought amazing results.I could'nt understand and still can't why these learned doctors did'nt suggest this instead of the scrips they would write.

                    My daughter has severe eczema and this has been a wonderful product to help ease the itch. The only downfall is it is rather difficult to get out of the container. One really needs to warm it up before use otherwise you have to dig at it.
