Against Osteoarthritis

Scientists are launching a groundbreaking new project to investigate the benefits of broccoli in the fight against osteoarthritis.

Initial laboratory research at University of East Anglia (UEA) has shown that a compound in broccoli called sulforaphane blocks the enzymes that cause joint destruction in osteoarthritis – the most common form of arthritis.

Sulforaphane is a bioactive compound found in cruciferous vegetables, particularly broccoli.
