Home / Targets Gout and Other Forms of Arthritis



Research shows tart cherry juice might help with gout, a form of painful arthritis that often impacts the big toe. One study showed promise in reducing flare-ups and there are more current studies in progress. The thought is that tart cherries have an impact on reducing levels of uric acid.

Studies show that tart cherry juice helps slightly lower pain and stiffness in those with arthritis after consuming consistently.

Most of the studies have been done around osteoarthritis,
where the cartilage of the joint lining thins, and more research is needed
to confirm how beneficial exposure may be.
