Broccoli For Health

I love broccoli and it's good to know all the benefits of this gorgeous vegetable and so versatile.

Eating plenty of broccoli could help to prevent or slow down the onset of osteoarthritis, researchers said.

Scientists at the University of East Anglia found that sulforaphane, which is found in broccoli as well as Brussels sprouts and cabbage, delays the destruction of cartilage in joints.

Researchers have so far tested their findings in models involving in cartilage cells, tissue and mice and now want to move to human trials.

Around 8.5 million people in Britain have osteoarthritis, a condition in which the surfaces of joints become damaged so it does not move as smoothly as it should.

It often affects people who are overweight or have had previous joint injuries. Source 4

More reasons to eat your broccoli

Broccoli and related vegetables in the Brassica family are loaded with health-promoting compounds known as phenolics. Researchers have identified a large number of candidate genes controlling phenolic compound accumulation in broccoli.

Ammonium nitrogen input increases the synthesis of anticarcinogenic compounds in broccoli

In the quest for less contaminating fertilizing strategies, a study has explored the use of ammonium-based fertilizers, less widely used than the nitrate for fertilizing owing to the reduced growth displayed by the plants. The comparison between these two sources of nitrogen has revealed a higher amount of glucosinolates in the case of ammonium nutrition. This gives the plants greater insecticidal capacity and this is of great interest nutritionally as these are anticarcinogenic substances. Ref. Source 4f.
