Why is Spinach the New Best Food for Osteoarthritis?

I am not sure why they decided it was the magnesium that helps as spinach is really one of the super foods. This is the nutritional description from Wikipedia:

Spinach has a high nutritional value and is extremely rich in antioxidants, especially when fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled. It is a rich source of vitamin A (and especially high in lutein), vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, folate, betaine, iron, vitamin B2, calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, folic acid, copper, protein, phosphorus, zinc, niacin, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids.

My biggest problem is I don’t like it. Oh well keep taking the multivitamins!
