Orthopedic conditions include disorders and problems with the bones, joints, nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. From carpal tunnel syndrome to accidents that cause broken bones to rheumatoid arthritis, pain and immobility in these crucial supportive parts of the body can have a drastic impact on one's quality of life.
Broccoli doesn't need any introduction when it comes to its health benefits, but it never hurts to reinforce a good thing. It is an especially good choice when looking for a food that's good for the bones and joints. For those who cannot or do not want to eat dairy, broccoli is a great natural source of calcium. Of course, it also contains many other great things like vitamin C, beta carotene, fiber, and sulforaphane, a powerful cancer-fighting substance.
