High-fat diet may aid cartilage repair

A recent study conducted on mice showed that a high-fat diet and increased body weight did not negatively impair cartilage repair, and it could, in fact even accelerate it.

Researchers suggest that the potential beneficial effects of a high-fat diet on cartilage repair are most likely related to inflammatory and metabolic changes, but the exact underlying mechanism is not yet clear, with further research required. “It also remains to be elucidated whether this phenomenon is particular for the mouse strain used in this study or is a more general phenomenon that also occurs in other genetic strains,” said Dr. Gerjo JVM van Osch, senior author of the article that appeared in the Journal of Orthopedic Research.
