Cartilage repair

by 3365 · February 03, 2013 at 3:14 AM

I've been working on a torn meniscus for a bit now. Things are going pretty well, but I still relapse if I slack on the exercises.

I'm wondering if I should be specifically timing my bone broth and collagen intake to maximize their therapeutic effects.

I'm also open to any other suggestions.

Thank you

I don't think you should be timing them, really. This is the regiment I followed for a month when I fell and hurt my knee:

  • Bone broth, 1 cup a day

  • Collagen types I and III (1x a day)

  • Collagen type II (5-6 hours apart from the other collage supplement) (1x day)

  • CoQ10 Ubiquinol (3x week)

  • Biosil (silicon) (3x week)

That was on top of my daily D3, some krill oil, Mg, and K2 Mk4 (not daily).

I recall that the Perfect Health Diet (2nd edition) mentions that sufficient levels of zinc and of vitamin c are required for the body to build its own collagen. After putting those in as supplements my lower back pain of many months has started to improve slowly.
