Eating Broccoli Could Guard Against Knee Arthritis

Here’s an interesting study underway on the pain relieving power of broccoli.

Scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA) are launching a groundbreaking new project to investigate the benefits of broccoli in the fight against knee arthritis.

Initial laboratory research at UEA has found that a compound in broccoli called sulforaphane blocks the enzymes that cause joint destruction in osteoarthritis the most common form of arthritis.

Broccoli has previously been associated with reduced cancer risk but this is the first major study into its effects on knee joint health.
