The artrosis is
that characterizes by the progressive

cartilage is in favor compound mainly of:
cement constituted by fibers of colágeno and aggregates of proteoglicanos and hialurónico acid.
The cartilage is in continuous renovation. The condrocitos synthesize
new intercellular cement and, at the same time, they destroy the oldest cement. They contain two types of enzymes: enzymes of synthesis and proteolytic enzymes of destruction or enzymes.
The cartilage is
very fragile weave.
damage in the condrocitos implies
rupture of the
balance between construction and destruction. It is always accompanied by biochemical modifications that they
to proteolytic enzymes.
Degradation of the cartilage.
The preponderant paper
been demonstrated that they carry out the free radicals in the artrósico phenomenon of the condrolisis, since the degradation of the cartilage must, to
large extent, to the action of the free radicals on the condrocitos.
This action takes place due to several leading factors. We can describe both better well - known: repeated microtraumatismos and aging.
The microtraumatismos are responsible for the
inflammation, always present in the artrosis. This inflammation must to the presence intra -
of microparticles that have like
the destruction of the cartilage. One accompanies by painful manifestations and hyperproduction of free radicals.
The free radicals free in great amounts during the fagocitosis of the macrophages and polimorfonucleares, attracted by the mediators of the inflammation (leucotrieno B4 and interleucina 1 mainly)
These cells also

: superoxide dismutasa, catalasa, peroxidasa. The aging is accompanied by
weakening of the
potential and, therefore, by
diminution of the "guard" as opposed to the action of the free radicals. Several pathological phenomena and certain medicines can alter the action of the antirust ones.
good treatment will have to protect the condrocitos in front of the free radicals and also to break the vicious circle of the
inflammation cause of the production of these.
Also, the formation of new cartilages is due to favor nourishing well the condrocitos. The cartilaginous cells need
good vascularización and construction equipments, mainly mineral:
The silica is implied in the construction of numerous weaves: conjuntivo, bony and cartilaginous.
First which there will be to do is to treat the pain to be able to recover the mobility of the joint, because the rest favors the acceleration of the destruction of the cartilage by diminution of the local sanguineous circulation. The pain must to the inflammation of the sinovial weave mainly.
Medicinal plants that can be used in the treatment of the artrosis.
In the acute crisis antiinflammatory plants such as

Treatment of bottom.
The proposed classic treatments at the moment do not act on the degenerative process. In addition, antiinflammatory the nonesteroideos ones (AINEs) present / display known adverse effects good, mainly at gastroduodenal level.

plays an important role in the treatment of bottom of the artrosis, acting in three fronts:
inflammation of the sinovial (responsible for the hyperproduction of free radicals) inhibiting the synthesis of certain cellular mediators.
On the degenerative process, protecting the condrocitos of the action of the free radicals.
On the necessities in materials to reconstruct the cartilage, contributing the necessary minerals for the synthesis of new cartilages.

Again we must make reference to the quite effective antiinflammatory plants and without important indirect effect such as
, reigns of the
, willow and black

These have the property in addition, to diminish the production of free radicals. The patient will feel the beneficial effects rather quickly, the time of desentumecimiento of the joints in the
will be smaller and it will be diminished the pain sensation.
2. Degenerative process.
In order to act on the degenerative processes we must protect to the condrocitos of the action of the free radicals. For this aim,
plant with antirust properties very marked will be used:
she - wolf.
3. Necessity of construction equipments.
Due to its continuous remodelamiento, the cartilage needs construction equipments, mainly
The silica plays an important role in the structural organization of the
