2. Broccoli and Cauliflower
Broccoli along with sprouts and cauliflowers contain valuable substances for our health. This is confirmed by new scientific research, which took into consideration their potential in the prevention and treatment of arthritis and arthrosis.
The merit goes to the sulforaphane, as researchers who worked on a study found that enriching participant’s diet with broccoli and cauliflower can help alleviate rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis and might even have the capability to prevent them.
According to experts from the University of East Anglia published in the journal ‘Arthritis & Rheumatism’, sulforaphane is able to slow down the destruction of joint cartilage, following which rheumatoid arthritis may appear. This vegetable is a natural anti-inflammatory agent against joint and muscular pains.
An ancient remedy recommends using broccoli or cauliflower and creating a watery broth. This is then drunk at regular intervals and the leaves are applied to the painful parts. Take the leaves, flatten them with a rolling pin to let the liquid out, apply them to the affected area by sealing with a film.
