(PRWEB) March 8, 2005 -- Medical research has shown Tart Cherries to contain
anti-inflammatory compounds. Many people are reporting Arthritis, Gout and
Fibromyalgia relief from taking Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate or CherryFlex
One of the most researched aids for Gout is Cherries. Gout is caused by the build up of uric acid in the blood stream and eventually the joints. Gout is a type of arthritis (inflammation of the joints) that mostly affects men age 40 and older. It is nearly always associated with an abnormally high concentration of uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is produced in the liver and enters the bloodstream. Under certain circumstances, the body produces to much uric acid or excretes to little. As uric acid concentrations increase, needle like crystals of a salt called monosodium urate (MSU) form. In time, MSU crystals accumulate and cause inflammation and pain, symptoms typical of gout. Cherries contain flavonoid compounds that can lower uric acid and reduce inflammation.
Because they contain the anthocyanins and flavones found in tart cherries, CherryFlex capsules and cherry juice concentrate can be effective in reducing the pain associated with gout. Recent studies also show that the antioxidant compounds in Cherries may be 10 times stronger than Aspirin or Ibuprofen in relieving arthritic pain. In addition, Tart Cherries contain Melatonin which helps with the bodies sleep rhythms and Perillyl alcohol, thought to shut down the growth of cancer cells by depriving them of the proteins they need to live.
