General practitioner Alexander Myasnikov: you should not believe that eating jellied meat helps make your joints healthier.

Dr. Myasnikov touched upon the topic of sore joints, and therefore commented on the statement about the particular benefits of jellied meat and other products containing gelatin. There is an opinion that periodic consumption of jellied meat strengthens joints, but the doctor noted that you should not trust such an opinion. Jellied meat does not strengthen joints, this is a misconception,” Alexander Myasnikov emphasized.

He explained that beneficial substances from food enter the blood, which provides nutrition to the tissues of important organs, but not the joints.

“Blood blood the vessels do not penetrate into the joint, the joint is nourished from the interarticular fluid,” said the famous physician.
Myasnikov noted that if joints and cartilage are damaged, it is no longer possible to restore them using some products. Also, medications will not help achieve such recovery (they can only provide relief from pain). The problem of a damaged joint can be solved only by replacing it, the doctor stated.

Earlier, the portal wrote that Alexander Myasnikov named products that provoke joint pain. Such products have the property of activating inflammatory processes in the body.
