The latest treatment for arthritis? Broccoli soup!
BROCCOLI soup may help ease arthritis pain.
To test the theory, a three-month trial at the University of East Anglia will monitor 50 patients with moderate to severe knee damage.
They will have either broccoli soup (made with a variety not available to consumers) for four days a week, or other types of vegetable soup. Previous research has shown sulforaphane, a compound in the vegetable, blocks the effects of harmful enzymes that destroy cartilage.
Participants will have their mobility and pain measured, and blood and urine tests to check their levels of sulforaphane.
