Having looked up all kinds of diet things related to Gout, I have found that black cherries, are good/indifferent/bad for you.

But on the pratical side, what harm could you be causing by increasing your intake of fruits and veggies? I know that I don't eat enough good stuff as I should, and changing old habits is/are/am difficult, and almost impossible to maintain, but if you know that you have a whole shelf of canned cherries looking at you everyday, then you might start eating healthier. Tiny steps.

Tart Cherry pills? First I've heard of them, but would rather spit-pits then pop-a-pill.

Hiya Pam!

If you have no allergies to cherries...GIVE IT A SHOT! The theory behind the cherries for arthritis, OA, RA and such is that like fish oil...the cherries act as an anti inflammaotry. They have anti oxidant and anti inflammatory properties, which can help the disease. And for gout...the vitamin C in the cherries helps with the uric acid break up.
The cherries I say fall into the same category as Co Q10, Vit E, fish oils and such...can't hurt to try!!

Hey Hubby!
Good to hear from you. I'de say to pit a 20 lb box of cherries...without a break....ummh?? We're pitting by mouth?? ok, say 20 cherries to a pound?? that's a minute a cherry X 20 =40 minutes to a pound...ummhhh 800 minutes?? That's my guestimate. :) LOL

Well i got some tart cherry pills at the natural learning center. At 15.00 for 90 pills thought i'd try it. I could not eat that many cherries tongue . There is no bad affects so who knows may work. I have alwaysd said that we have all these different things here on earth for a reason.

Hey Pam, our ancestors did not have modern medicine and they actually probably had better medicine for some things than we have today. Keep us posted. Susie

Hi Pam!

I have been taking tart cherry pills for a while now... they have worked wonders on my joints. I recently switched to a new product that combines tart cherry with glucosamine and chondroitin. I feel great since switching.
 
If you're not allergic to fish, you should try it!

Does anyone know about CherryFlex Softgels? My friend has taken them for a couple of years and swears by them. They are supposed to have more antioxidants that other cherry pills and work for both gout and arthritis.

I did see a report on the news last week showing a large study that stated glucosamine and chondroitin don't have any benefit for joint pain.

I used to take those softgels but most of the bottle was melted when I received them. The company even states on there website they can't ship this product in the summer, because they melt (go figure). So I don't take them anymore.

I also read the study about glucosamine. It didn't say all types of glucosamine didn't work, so don't try to mislead. scool

Suzy, the cherry/glucosamine product sounds interesting.
