Brussels sprouts contain 150% of the Daily Recommended Value.

A study in the journal Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases found that those who eat foods rich in vitamin C were protected against inflammatory polyarthritis, a form of rheumatoid arthritis.

A 1-cup serving of Brussels sprouts provides more than twice the Daily Recommended Value of vitamin K.
