{image-fruit juice_21042008.jpg}Sydney, Apr 21: Orange can be instrumental in curing Arthritis, claims research. Researchers have found that vitamin C consumption help protect against the pain and progression of osteoarthritis in knee joints.

The research showed that intake of 200mg of vitamin C a day -- equivalent to about one orange -- prevented early bone damage in knee joints, Herals Sun reported. ''What our study has shown is that certainly a healthy diet, particularly in relation to oranges and vitamin C, has a beneficial affect on the joint,'' the paper quoted study leader Prof Flavia Cicuttini, the head of rheumatology at the Alfred hospital, as saying. The study examined the diets of almost 300 men and women aged in their 50s.
