The first study on cherries for gout appeared in medical literature in 1950 (Texas Reports on Biology and Medicine). A study published in 2003 in the Journal of Nutrition found that among 10 healthy women eating cherries, uric acid fell by 15%. A Journal of Nutrition study from 2006 found that 18 healthy adults who ate cherries each day for a month had a significant reduction in blood levels of substances associated with inflammation and immune cell activity. A Journal Arthritis & Rheumatism study of 633 patients with confirmed gout and followed for 1 year, found that patients with gout who consumed cherries or cherry based extract for 2 days were less likely of a subsequent gout attack by 35%. Those patients who ate more cherries, had an even lower, 50 percent reduction in risk.
Filling out the Follow Up registries on a regular basis, allows participants to share and validate the efficacy of cherries. .
In turn, we will share the collected data allowing the individual participant to learn about Cherries efficacy for Gout – all based on the wisdom of the crowd.
