We have often been asked about the remedies to regenerate cartilage mainly people who suffer from problems with the knee.
To give an answer, it is necessary to know first what is the cartilage and what is formed.
Cartilage is a variety of connective tissue, whitish and lustrous and homogeneous, found in those parts of the body that require solid and resistant materials, but at the same time, flexible and elastic.
Cartilage forms the bones of the embryo and, although it progressively transforms into bone tissue as the individual grows, it does not completely turn into bone until the end of adolescence.
In the joints, the cartilaginous tissue plays a fundamental role, as it covers the surface of the bones that are in contact with each other and facilitates the displacement of one over the other. Likewise, the ducts of the respiratory system, from the larynx to the bronchi, are reinforced by cartilage.
If the cartilage is observed under a microscope, it is seen that it is formed by small groups of cells embedded in a substance at the same time rigid and flexible.
This substance is composed of an amorphous material in the core of which are protein fibers, called collagen fibers, which run in different directions. The collagen fibers give the cartilage a remarkable tensile strength.
Remedy to regenerate cartilages (regenerators) # 1 Boil 1 tablespoon of boswellia in a cup of water for 5 minutes. Cover and let cool. Strain and drink 1 cup a day.
Remedy to regenerate cartilage (regenerators) # 2 Eat foods rich in omega 3 like blue fish.
Remedy to regenerate cartilage (regenerators) # 3 Take 3 capsules of bamboo powder 240 milligrams daily. This remedy is considered a good regenerator of bones and joints.
Remedy to regenerate cartilage (regenerators) # 4 Pour 1 teaspoon turmeric powder and 1 ginger powder into 1 cup of boiling water. Mix well and drink 2 cups a day.
Remedy to regenerate cartilage (regenerators) # 5 Consume 2 capsules of borage oil daily as it is rich in gamma-linolenic acid, and manganese.
Remedy to regenerate cartilages (regenerators) # 6 Ingest collagen hydrolyzate (or gelatin) which has the function of facilitating and improving the function of collagen, the main component of cartilage. Collagen is a protein that surrounds some organs or parts of them in order to protect them and maintain the elasticity and structure of the tissue. It is essential in all cases where it is necessary to contribute to the maintenance of the cartilaginous tissues or to stimulate their formation. Clinical studies demonstrate that the daily administration of this hydrolyzate at the recommended dosages and during two months improves the alterations of people with early-stage osteoarthritis and motor impairment in people with chronic osteoarthritis.
Remedy to Regenerate Cartilages (Regenerators) # 7 Ingest foods into sulfur rivers such as garlic and onion because sulfur helps in the regeneration of cartilage and connective tissue.
Remedy to regenerate cartilage (regenerators) # 8 Consume foods containing vitamin C as citrus fruits as they allow the generation of collagen which is the protein of bones, cartilage and skin.
Remedy to regenerate cartilage (regenerative) # 9 Ingest foods rich in vitamin E as wheat germ and avocado, as they favor the formation of cartilage.
Frequently asked questions
Why the meniscus can not be welded like a bone does when it is broken?
The cartilaginous tissue of the meniscus has very little vitality, due to the lack of blood vessels that provide it with abundant food.
Is it true that children have more cartilage than bones?
It is in part. Although there is a large amount of bone in the child’s skeleton, the considerable percentage of cartilage still found in it explains that children will hardly have fractures when they fall. This is because cartilage is a more flexible material with a greater capacity to absorb trauma than bone. In addition, children weigh less than adults, so the impact after a fall from the same height will also be proportionally lower.
Is it possible to have a cartilage autotransplant?
Yes. In this case the donor is the patient himself, with which there are no problems of rejection. Cartilage is usually removed from the ribs, where the removal of a small fragment is not a problem. This procedure is usually used to reconstruct some areas of esthetic importance, such as the nose or ear. In this type of transplant it is important to ensure adequate nutrition from neighboring structures, as the cartilage does not have its own irrigation.
What is a hernia of cartilage?
It is a slip that only affects a certain type of cartilage – the ntervertebral discs – and is called a herniated disc. These discs are located between vertebra and vertebra as a pad, and their function is to give elasticity to the spine. When a hernia occurs as a result of a strong pressure or a sudden rotation, what happens is that the disc moves outwards and oppresses neighboring structures.
Since the spinal cord is located inside the spinal cord, because of the spinal cord along its entire path, numerous nerve roots arise, it is frequent that the pressure on them causes pains such as that characteristic of lumbago .
