- Leather. Fingernails. Hair. Burns. Recovery after surgery. The duration of the course should be such that the cells of these tissues have time to change to new ones.
- Cartilaginous tissue is one of the most slowly renewed. This is because the cartilage does not have direct capillary feeding from the bloodstream. Cartilage receives nutrients only through osmosis and diffusion when it is washed with its synovial fluid. The ablution takes place when the joint moves, so moderate physical activity is necessary for normal regeneration of the cartilage and restoration of the entire joint.
If you take collagen together with glucosamine / chondroitin preparations, you should take a break in taking them after every 2-3 months, but it is not recommended to take a break in taking collagen.
More effective will be a longer course of taking only collagen, than a shorter course of taking collagen together with preparations of chondroitin and glucosamine.
The duration of the course of taking collagen is from three months to several years, and in severe cases and all life, courses. Restoration of cartilaginous tissues, unfortunately, takes a long time.
