Soybeans and Cherries for Pain   11 y  
Pop a few soybeans and cherries, and call me in the morning? It's hardly the sort of advice you'd expect to hear from your doctor. But a pair of promising new reports underscore the link between pain relief and the foods we eat.
 
Tart cherries have long been believed to ease the discomfort of arthritis and gout. And a recent study of the fruit’s medicinal power (Journal of Natural Products, February 1999) now confers clinical credibility. Researchers at Michigan State University (MSU) found that tart cherries contain a substance called anthocyanin, which not only gives the fruit its color but may offer more potent pain relief than aspirin--and prove as effective an antioxidant as vitamins C and E. Twenty cherries appear to provide enough anthocyanin (12 to 25 milligrams [mgs]) to inhibit the formation of cyclooxyge ...   read more



 
Cherries: Chronic Pain from Gout/Arthritis   11 y  
Cherry Juice Gout Treatment You may be hearing a lot about cherry juice gout relief therapy if you're one of the millions of people who suffer from the chronic pain of arthritis or gout. New research has uncovered evidence that compounds in cherries may help to relieve pain caused by this affliction and other forms of arthritis in several important ways.
 
Although it has been long believed that adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle will help to combat the symptoms of gout, we are now beginning to realize the many health benefits of cherry juice in addition to these dietary changes. But what is it exactly that makes cherry juice gout’s worst enemy? For one thing, cherries have been shown to lower levels of uric acid in the blood, which is one of the most common causes of gout pain. A study at the University of California Davis showed that consuming a serving of cherries daily significantly lowered the blood uric acid levels of women by as ...   read more

PRWEB) March 8, 2005 -- Medical research has shown Tart Cherries to contain anti-inflammatory compounds. Many people are reporting Arthritis, Gout and Fibromyalgia relief from taking Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate or CherryFlex Softgels. One of the most researched aids for Gout is Cherries. Gout is caused by the build up of uric acid in the blood stream and eventually the joints. Gout is a type of arthritis (inflammation of the joints) that mostly affects men age 40 and older. It is nearly always associated with an abnormally high concentration of uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is pro ...   read more



 
Cherries for Cancer?   11 y  
A Bowl of Cherries Singer Rudy Vallee used to croon: "Life is just a bowl of cherries." I always wondered, "Why cherries? Why not plums, pears, or persimmons?" No longer. Scientists are now proving that the cherry (particularly the tart cherry, Prunus cerasus) contains a host of marvelous compounds that fight diseases, including cancer. I read somewhere on a list that woman drank tart cherrie juice to relieve back pain. I hope it helps.
 
The cherry is of course a harbinger of spring, its deep-colored fruit among the best of summertime treats. The tart cherry is a hardy and attractive planting. Despite its name (sometimes also called ”sour cherry”), it is a delightfully pungent fruit to eat. My neighbor, Jan W., has a magnificent tart cherry tree in her front yard. The soil is not rich yet in good years she feasts off that tree, about 7,000 cherries in a good season! Tart cherries are only ”sour” in comparison to sugary sweet cherries. The top tart cherry species in the US is the Montmorency, but recently, Dr. Amy Iezz ...   read more



 
Tart Cherries for Jet Lag   11 y  
While melayonin supplements have not been found effective for jet lag, pehaps the meleatonin in tart cherries as a natural food, may help. Give it a try and get back with me.
 
In several countries, melatonin is sold over the counter; in others its free sale is prohibited. The usefulness of melatonin as a food additive continues to be a matter of debate. Meanwhile, countless people have used melatonin for mitigating the symptoms of jet lag, an application which has been tested and is recommended [1-4]; any person we have spoken to has reported positive experiences. Melatonin has been and is being used in several clinical trials with different therapeutic approaches. In some of these studies, in addition to improvements of sleep, the repeatedly demonstrated anti ...   read more



 
Tart Cherries for Insomia   11 y  
Reiter recently put some hard science behind the cherry folklore. He conducted a five-month study and found that tart cherries contain significant amounts of melatonin — a hormone produced in the brain’s pineal gland that has been credited with slowing the aging process, and fighting insomnia and jet lag. It’s also being studied as a potential treatment for cancer, depression and other diseases and disorders.
 
Are cherries the new wonder fruit? Science suggests they’re good for more than just pies By Bob Trott For decades, cherries slid by on reputation only. The tangy little orbs of deliciousness have been credited with an array of health advantages, from soothing gout and arthritis to helping with a good night’s sleep. Without hard data, though, such claims were dismissed as proverbial old wives’ tales. Well, sometimes old wives know what they’re talking about. “It was always anecdotal, but it’s been reported so frequently, by so many different people, that you have to thi ...   read more



 
Tart Cherry for Pain   11 y  
Recent research suggests drinking a glass of tart cherry juice might help defuse arthritis pain. Researchers from Michigan State University found anthocyanins, the same chemicals that give tart cherries their color, may have more powerful anti-inflammatory effects than aspirin. It's still unknown whether this might translate into pain relief for arthritis patients in the real world.
 
Drinking Tart Cherry Juice: Does It Really Help Arthritis Pain? The Research In this study (Journal of Natural Products, 1999), researchers used the equivalent of 20 tart cherries. They found anthocyanins in the tart cherries inhibited two enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2, that play a role in the body’s production of prostaglandins, natural chemicals involved in inflammation. This process to block inflammation is similar to the effects of aspirin and traditional nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and naproxen. Tart cherries are also good sources of antioxidants, ...   read more
