how to fill in cartilage?

hello everyone
I have a big problem with my knees - I suffer from chondromalacia.
My question is how do you fill in your cartilage? It is hard to do it eating veggies, or maybe I don't know how to do it. Waiting for your responses!

I'm 59, have a very physical job and I run and for many years have had some pretty bad joint and muscle pain. I put curry powder, with turmeric, in my food almost every day and I try to keep up with some stretching. Recently I found a supplement called Joint-Vie made by a company in the UK called Vegetology. It's 100% vegan and has something they call "phytodroitin" in it. It's supposed to be a vegan form of chondroitin. It also has vegan D3. I've been taking it about a month, and I THINK it's working.

I had chondromalacia patella years ago, off and on. It was sharp pain in my knee cap. I haven't had it for years, and I can't say why it just mysteriously disappeared.

I know the studies about the effectiveness of chondroitin and glucosamine are inconclusive at best, and maybe the improvement I feel is the placebo effect, but that's okay. I really seem to have much less pain since I've been taking this. It may have taken a few weeks before it started working. There's a thread on the Physical Fitness forum that I think mentions other vegan chondroitin supplements, so you may want to check that out.

Good luck!
