Protein is invaluable support for proper functioning of joints. This is a necessary ingredient for building new tissues and muscle structures. High-quality protein is a constituent of synovial fluid. The human body produces protein on its own, however, it is necessary to include protein-rich ingredients in the diet. Our diet should primarily contain wholesome protein, so mainly originating from animals. We should therefore provide our body with dense dairy products – cottage cheese, kefir, milk. Milk products are also rich in calcium, which together with phosphorus builds bone structure. Ingredients rich in whole-grain protein are also fish and meat such as veal, poultry, rabbit meat. Choose lean meat that does not contain large amounts of unfavorable fat.
Collagen is the main connective tissue protein that provides the right cushioning and elasticity to the joints. Collagen forms the structure of tendons, ligaments, joints and intervertebral discs. The strength and resistance of cartilage depends from it. Proper collagen suppression prevents the occurrence of autoimmune diseases associated with the destruction of articular cartilage. This increases joint mobility and flexibility. Collagen is an indispensable bone building ingredient. Vitamin C provided better absorption of collagen. Unfortunately, as the body ages, it produces smaller amounts of collagen. An incorrect diet, past illness, unhealthy lifestyle or very intensive sports training reduce the ability of the body to self-replenish collagen deficiencies. Collagen deficiency directly translates into insufficient production of synovial fluid in the joints. When this happens, patients complain about the pain in joints and problems with movement and physical activity.
