CHERRIES

CliniCrowd, for the first time in Gout history, has created a registry for patients and/or their primary care givers to test and validate cherries, as a remedy for Gout. We believe the power and wisdom of the crowd will fast track this process to help assess the potential symptom-improving benefits of cherries for the Gout community. CliniCrowd’s Gout registry was driven by a number of clinical studies that assessed the effect of cherries on Gout.

The first study on cherries for Gout appeared in medical literature in 1950 (Texas Report on Biology and Medicine). A study published in 2003 found that among 10 healthy women eating two servings of Bing Cherries, uric acid fell by 15%.  See publication.  A clinical study published in 2006 found that 18 healthy adults who ate 280gr of Bing Cherries each day for a month had a significant reduction in blood levels of substances associated with inflammation and immune cell activity. See publication.

Based on the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007–2008, the prevalence of Gout is estimated to be 3.9% among US adults, which translates into 8.3 million US people. More info on cherries and Gout can be found here.

A prospective survey study published in 2012 included 633 patients with confirmed Gout and followed them for 1 year. This study found that patients with Gout who consumed cherries (1/2 cup serving or the equivalent of 10-12 Cherries) or cherry based extract for 2 days were less likely to have a subsequent Gout attack by 35%. Those patients who ate more cherries, up to three servings in two days, had an even lower, 50 percent reduction in risk.  See publication.

Research published in 2012 present’s additional support for the positive effect of cherries on Gout. See publication.
