Cartilage is Constantly Breaking Down and Rebuilding Itself and May Wear Itself Down Over Time
Your cartilage is just as alive as the rest of your body. It breaks down and rebuilds itself constantly. The cells that build cartilage, chondrocytes, need a consistent supply of nutrients to stay on top of this task. There are many things that influence the way your cartilage wears down, so maintaining a good intake of the right nutrients can be vital.
