Do you suffer from joint pain caused by gout or arthritis?
* Montmorency cherries are a rich source of anthocyanins
* Anthocyanins possess natural, anti-inflammatory properties.
* Anthocyanins in cherries also help to maintain healthy levels of URIC ACID.
* Health care therapists recommend Montmorency cherry juice or capsules to maintain healthy, comfortable joint function and normal uric acid levels.
The buildup of uric acid in certain areas of the body such as the feet, ankles and toes can lead to gout. Uric acid will crystallize when it is not eliminated by the body, and those formations inside the body cause very sharp pain that can be agonizing. When you get an attack of gout in one of your big toes, the swelling and pain may make it impossible for you to move. Cherry juice contains a compound called anthocyanin that can dissolve these crystals and reduce gout pain.
Benefits of Anthocyanins:
The anthocyanins in cherries provide the fruit with the bright-red pigment you see on the outside. It also decreases urates (hardened uric acid) in the blood when ingested. In order to get the full benefit of the anthocyanins to fight gout and other healthy issues, have two full tablespoons of cherry juice or per day or two servings (six cherries) of dried or fresh cherries.
Speed of Relief :
If you drink cherry juice after an attack of gout, you may expect to feel better overnight. You should be able to feel the full effect of the anthocyanins after 48 hours, but there will be some relief within 6 to 8 hours. In addition to drinking the cherry juice, ice the area for 15 minutes of every hour in order to relieve the pain.

How many cherries are contained in CherryActive Products?
Each 946ml bottle of CherryActive’s cherry juice Concentrate contains the juice of around 3,000 individual Montmorency tart cherries (about half a tree’s worth!). Each capsule contains the powder from around 100 cherries, therefore around 6,000 cherries per 60 capsule tub.
Should I take CherryActive Concentrate or Capsules?
The choice is really up to personal preference. Some customers prefer the Concentrate as it makes a pleasant-tasting juice and helps to increase the water intake. It also absorbs quickly into the bloodstream. Other customers prefer the convenience of the Capsules (for storage and travelling). The Capsules contain less carbohydrate per serving than the Concentrate, although the absorption rate is usually less with a powder than a liquid.
They also contain virtually no carbohydrate.Both products are equally effective.
Can diabetics take CherryActive Products?
CA Concentrate contains 21g of natural fruit sugars per 30ml serving. Montmorency cherries have a low Glycemic Index (GI) score of 54 (any score less than 5 is considered low) thus producing only a mild rise in blood sugar levels. Our Dried Cherries have a moderate GI score of 58. CherryActive Capsules contain less than 0.5g of carbohydrate per capsule, so may be more appropriate for diabetics to take.
