Pennywort: Keeps you moving (again!)
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease in which cartilage destruction is one of the primary features. We have seen on this website how Pennywort (C. asiatica) can help to modulate this type of disease.
The results demonstrated that Pennywort (Centella asiatica) can inhibit cartilage degradation in vivo.
The in vitro data indicate that the cartilage protective activity might at least partially be induced by the inhibition of Nitric Oxide NO production.
In conclusion, the results show a possible disease modifying osteoarthritic activity of Pennywort.
