Arthritis and the zinc-link

Osteoarthritis is characterized by the destruction of cartilage tissue in joints. A recent study published in the journal Cell reveals that osteoarthritis tissue damage is caused by a pathway involved in regulating and responding to zinc levels inside of cartilage cells. Tissue destruction is caused by proteins called matrix-degrading enzymes. Low zinc levels cause these enzymes to malfunction. The focus of this study is not to there to suggest that taking supplemental zinc would help relieve osteoarthritis (which it does…), but rather, the researchers are trying to figure out how to develop a patentable zinc-based drug so they can make lots and lots of money. Try taking 90mg of supplemental zinc gluconate day, clean up your diet and forget about taking toxic chemical concoctions.
