Joint cartilages act like shock absorbers. Found between two hard bones, they prevent friction and lesions, which would be inevitable if they were not there. Water molecules make up 80% of the cartilage. These are contained in a network of 15% interwoven fibres, which form the structure, and 5% chondrocytes, the active cells of the cartilage.
The chondrocytes regulate synthesis and degradation inside the cartilage to keep the tissue healthy. Cartilage contains very few vessels, making healing difficult. When the joint is put under pressure, the water leaves the network, reducing the thickness of the cartilage. When the joint is returned to the resting state, the water returns.
Mechanical or biological events disrupt the balance of the degradation and synthesis of the articular chondrocytes, leading to morphological, biochemical, molecular and biomechanical changes that cause fibrillation, ulceration and a loss of joint cartilage, sclerosis of the subchondral bone and osteophyte production. These lesions cause limping, pain and restricted movement.
Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are vital components of cartilage. Curcumin and the polyphenols in green tea, including epigallocatechin gallate, are powerful natural antioxidants that help to neutralise free radicals.
The nutritional components of Miloa Mobility Supp TM work together to support the elasticity and strength of joint cartilage.
