(Q1) how do you grow articular (or hyaline cartilage)? I know that your articular cartilage has to last your whole life since it doesn't regenerate itself very well(and someone else mentioned the glucosamine helps to regrow it over time). But do you know of glucosamine sulfafe does in fact grow cartilage? if it does, does it also affect the cartilage in the face and cause acromegaly (or distortion to a lesser degree)? What about colostrum or chondroiton? (Q2) growing more aticular and fibrocartilage? is there anything I can do (nutrition, exercises, stretching ,etc.) that can increase this cartilage? (Q3) growing healthy and more cartilage... can your other cartilaginous parts grow after you epiphyseal plates have fused? Like between your shin and femur or between your spinal disks?
