Natural Cures for Gout – Cherries 
David W Bates www.therapiesguide.co.uk


Gout relief and treatment
“Consuming cherries, cherry juice or cherry extract may reduce the risk of gout attacks and be useful as a preventive measure”.

Gout is a type of arthritis, in which crystals of sodium urate produced by the body can form inside joints. Gout affects approximately 1 in 200 adults, most commonly men between 30-60 years of age. Gout less commonly affects women.
Gout occurs when there is too much uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is usually harmless and is generally it is passed out with the urine and faeces , it is a normal by-product of the body’s breakdown of purines which are found in many foods.

Purine rich foods:-
Anchovies, sardines, scallops, dried beans and peas, asparagus, mushrooms, game meats and beef kidneys. Normally, uric acid is dissolved in the blood, passed through the kidneys, and eliminated through urine and faeces.
For some people the amount of urndic acid in the blood builds up which can result in sharp crystals forming in the joints; commonly the joint that is most effected is the big toe and less often it affects other joints such as ankles, knees, elbows, wrists and fingers. This results in painful swelling, stiffness resulting in the joint becoming reddened by the inflammation. Walking can be very painful and even the weight of bedclothes can hurt.

Cherries are full of vitamin C and anthocyanins, making them perfect for fighting many health problems. Cherries also contain high levels of beta carotene (vitamin A), vitamin E and are a source of potassium, magnesium and iron.

  • Vitamin C is an essential nutrient in humans which protects our bodies against oxidative stress. It has the ability to reduce the uric acid levels in our bodies.
  • Athocyanin (the red pigment in berries)
    Is a very potent antioxidant which neutralises potentially harmful free radicals, combat gout, reduce uric acid levels and help with sleep cyclesotent antioxidant which neutralises potentially harmful free radicals, combat gout, reduce uric acid levels and help with sleep cycles
