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
