My mechanic recently explained to me that he has cartilage damage and he is having steroid injections almost every other week. I do normally reveal what I do to people I do business with, but as he could not take my car in which required emergency repairs, I wanted to know why I had to wait 6 weeks, which is when he explained.
Cartilage is regenerated according to what food you eat. One of the other most common conditions that affects the ankle, knee, wrist, elbow, and shoulder cartilage is arthritis, currently a very well-known disease that affects almost everyone older than forty. For this reason, it is necessary to have proper nutrition so that cartilage tissue can regenerate quickly.
One of the most important amino acids for the rapid regeneration of cartilage is lysine. It is responsible for absorbing calcium and producing collagen that rebuilds damaged tissue. It also improves your skin’s appearance and tendon strength.
A study done by the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) concluded that lysine deficiency can delay the growth of damaged tissue. It can also affect the regeneration of skin cells, which damages the total reconstruction of the area involved with the physical damage.
30 mg (milligrams) of lysine for every kilo of body weight is what you should consume in order to help the body be able to rebuild cartilage faster. The foods that contains high levels of lysine are:
Nuts, seeds, beans, and lentils. The recommended daily intake for lysine is 30mg per kilogramme of body weight, or 13.6mg per pound.
