    Collagen, cartilage and joints

    A joint including cartilage

    Collagen is a cross-linked protein in human tissue. Like the iron mesh that reinforces concrete constructions, collagen provides elasticity and tensile strength, thereby offering useful support for e.g. collagen in joints.

    The cartilage in a young and healthy knee joint is intact so it can serve as a protective cushion that absorbs shock and impact. The best way to maintain healthy cartilage is by making sure to stimulate the joint with regular use. In fact, the compression and decompression of the cartilage tissue that happens when you use a joint is necessary to ensure that the supportive nutrients enter the cartilage. These nutrients serve as building blocks in the upkeep of strong and elastic cartilage. Cartilage tissue has no blood supply and therefore depends on so-called passive diffusion where nutrients are absorbed and toxic waste is squeezed out.

    Healthy joints and cartilage are important for maintaining your quality of life. The better your joints function, the easier it is for you to stay physically active and enjoy the different activities that help you stay youthful and fit.
