Black (sour) Cherries for Gout and Arthritis

5 posts in this topic

I have a bit of arthritis in my knees. DH has gout flareups on rare occasions, as well as regular arthritis in his hands. Black (sour) cherry juice works wonders for both of us. I grow sour cherries. But our trees are still young and don't produce as much as we really need yet. So I also buy sour cherry juice concentrate. We blend it in other juice, coffee, or tea to make it more palatable. It is amazing how much it helps!!! I highly recommend using it if you have joint problems, whether gout or osteoarthritis. Just a tablespoon per day does wonders for me - keeps my knees in pretty decent shape.

It is so very hard to find any type of cherry juice around here.

 

I'll look for the sour cherry juice concentrate. Thanks.

Ouch, my arthritis is really flaring up in my neck this fall. Bad enought it hurts, but it causes headaches too. My knees are getting stiff too.

 

I'll have to see if I can find some cherry juice. I'm new to the cherry juice stuff. I always thought black (bing) cherries were the sweet ones? Is there black cherry juice that is sour? I've seen cherry juice in my grocery store but it's probably a cocktail type of juice instead of 100% juice.

 

I really need to do some searching around for my neck. I had two severe whiplash accidents in my younger days and am paying for it now.

The traditional treatment was cherries, cherry juice, or even tea made from cherry stems.
