I bought this because I heard that anthocyanins are effective for gout.
This is my personal experience so I don't know if it applies to everyone else.
I feel a lot of improvement in the pain in my heel and big toe area.
I didn't feel the effect right away after taking it, but it seems to have gotten better than before I started taking it regularly for a long time.
On the other hand, it is said to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-lowering effects, so I plan to consume it regularly.
I am unable to take the usual medications prescribed for gout because they affect my liver enzymes poorly so I discovered this and after 15 years of frequent gout attacks I am symptom free. The cherry fruit extract is a miracle as far as I am concerned.
Excellent quality, ingredient, size, composition and packaging. The benefit is to help to reduce uric acid for my age due to oxidative stress due to free radicals. No taste. Overall good preventive supplement
I decided to add a cherry fruit supplement to my regiment for joint support and inflammation. Nature’s Way has always been a quality company so I chose their product. It is an easy to swallow small capsule with 500mg of essential ingredients and sensitive to the stomach.
I take this to alleviate arthritis in my thumbs. It works in the dry climate where I live but during "wet" months or in humid climates, I sometimes have to switch from cherry extract to turmeric, which for me, is stronger. I've had digestive issues taking turmeric for longer periods, however, so I prefer cherry extract. I believe, but aren't sure, that cherry extract has less of an effect on my system. I'm purchasing the Nature's Way brand again but also am also purchasing the Solgar alternative, which is 2x pricier. It will be interesting to compare them.
I am ordering this product for second time since it really helped my colleague with his gout pain. He's not limping anymore and doesn't have to use other medicaments if he's following his diet restrictions and using this supplement.
