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.
