Arthritis is a general term for more than 100 different types of joint inflammation. The most common of these are rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis. Both of these conditions have a tremendous impact on the lives of millions of people around the world.

According to the World Health Organization, up to 1% of the global population suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, a condition is more common in developed countries.

Women frequently hit by RA than men.
It is estimated that more than half of patients in RA cannot work full-time within 10 years of rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease of the cartilage – essentially, these are joints that are dressed for years. That’s why working harder labor, like agriculture, increases the risk of developing osteoarthritis up to 9.3 times!

About 9.6% of men and 18% of women after 60 years of age suffer from osteoarthritis, and up to 25% of them will become unable to perform their daily activities due to illness.

So much for bad news!

In this article, we will consider an incredibly powerful natural component that is struggling against every harmful aspect of arthritis, but first, let’s look at what this disease is.

ARTHRITIS – WHAT happened in your body?

Rheumatoid arthritis has 3 main components:

Autoimmune damage – the body produces immune cells that begin to attack the joints of your body instead of protecting them.
Due to autoimmune damage and constant movement, the joint tissues become inflamed, swollen and painful.
Inflammation always leads to the formation of connective tissue in the form of scars. During arthritis, this leads to serious deformities and movement restrictions.
Imagine this: the hinge is like a small capsule that covers the ends of the two adjacent bones. The end of each bone is covered with a smooth cartilage tissue to reduce friction between them. The articulated chamber itself is filled with thin fluid to reduce friction between the bones.
So, without switching to too much detail, arthritis is all about cartilage at the end of your bones that are dressed (osteoarthritis) or damaged (rheumatoid arthritis).

When this happens, the bones begin to rub and scratch each other, damaging themselves and the wrist with each movement. Inflammation worsens, cartilage is further destroyed, and the vicious cycle is repeated.

Now, good news!


Sulforaphane is a compound that is formed in all plants of a cruising family (mustard, cauliflower
, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprocket) when cutting in any way or damaged.
When the cells of this vegetable are crushed in the process of cutting, chopping, chewing or juicing, the myzininase enzyme reacts with glucoraphanin – and sulforaphane is a wonderful result of this reaction.


Well, there are nutrients that are just healthy, and there are nutrients that are borderline miraculous. Sulforaphane is a border wonder.

It combats cancer, restores autism, calms inflammation, kills bacteria that cause peptic ulcers, and benefits list continues.

Today we will focus on another aspect of sulforaphane in healing power: it has the means to protect cartilage (chondroprotective) that protect and treat joints of rheumatoid arthritis.

Remember the three RA components listed above? Here’s how sulforaphane helps in each of them:

Reduces autoimmune damage: Studies show that sulforaphane prevents the formation of immune factors (interleukins, prostaglandins, etc.) which essentially cause immune damage to the joints. It also protects the cartilage from any kind of flammable damage that can happen right now.

It calms inflammation: animal studies confirm that sulforaphane effectively reduces joint inflammation at the molecular and immune levels. Another great effect is that it protects non-inflammatory joint cells, which lessens the spread of inflammation.
