Aloha pookie,
i haven't tried the cherry juice concentrate, but i've tried the cranberry. I am no authority, but I think (for me) it's going to take a combo of things--so i'm trying a gluten free, soy free, dairy free, egg free diet and i'm not sure how much the juice has contributed to my relief.

I get my unsweetened cranberry juice (and i've seen the cherry their) at an organic health food store. I had to call around and search all over for an unsweetened concentrate (costco doesn't carry it Confused ). I buy (the brand)knudsen's 32 fl oz bottle. So my suggestion is locate an organic health food store.

I don't know how unsweetened cherry juice tastes (i choose no sugar so I don't tax my liver anymore than I have to, leaving it in the best shape to filter out toxins), but cranberry straight up is less than tasty, so I usually put it in my smoothies--which includes blue berries, strawberries, and bananas, but no citrus since I seem to be one of those ra people whose joints don't like citrus Sad .


The following is a link to knudsen's webpage:
Knudsenjuices.Com
click on where to buy and enter your zip code for the closest store. If it doesn't come up with a store near you, it doesn't mean it's not stocked at a local market--the site doesn't have all the stores names at which its products are sold.

Good luck! And let me know how it works for you (i might try it to). I'll see what I can find out about it and i'll post any info I find. :d

Hi, I had heard that it was sour cherries that helped the inflammation. Can be found in most health food stores.

Also have tried the nsd and antibiotic to control my as. Still looking for good suggestions to fight this naturally.

Best,
klem

Cherry Juice Concentrate
I do use cherry juice concentrate. The brand i use in Nature best, and i will include a few links too it. I have been diagnosed with arthritis, and a rare spinal disease that has very painful daily symptoms. I have had two total knee replacements in the same knee in 16 months time. I have been too numerous specialists, and have tried many pain meds and vitamins and minerals..After my massage therapists talked to me about the benefits of cherry juice concentrate and hearing it talked about on Oprah, i decided i should give it a try. I SWEAR BY THE STUFF, and its very tasty. It can also be added to coca-cola, yogurts, smoothies, etc. I know longer drink soda or any other juice of any kind. The brand i buy, cost about $20 per bottle, but a bottle last for a month. That means its actually .70 cents per serving, which is much cheaper then any other drinks. 2T per day is all you need, but you may like the taste so well, you want more then that. Its a very refreshing drink. I mix mine by the quart too always have ready.

Not only is beneficial in relieving arthritis and gout pain, it also lowers the risk of heart disease and cancer. It also has melatonin which helps with our natural sleep cycles. I would suggest it to anyone. yes

Hello,

I posted about this in another forum but that's because it's practically the same issue. I don't know how well Cherry juice works but my mom's been on a joint supplement called micosamine. it is made from dehydrated cow milk. What it basically does is promote joint flexibility. Hope this helps Smile.

Dear AS Members, May I try and brighten up your day a little...read on please. I had all the early symptoms of AS and just put this down to the sporting pressures placed on my body when youger. I'm now mid 30's and getting the Iritis (eye problems) etc with inflammation of this disease with pain and stiffness in most places. Life is a pain both physcially and mentally. You get to handle putting steriod drops in your eyes every hour for weeks but having a positive approach helps. Cutting to the chase, I read somewhere on the internet that TART CHERRY JUICE helped one sufferer. Having tried almost every known natural cure this one was like a gift from above. I've been on Naproxen and has made me feel real bad so recently stopped and when my first order of TART CHERRY JUICE arrived I drank the first litre in a couple of days. Since I have been drinking this stuff, I can honestly say it has virtually elimanated any of the really painful feelings and is like nectar from heaven. This is not a sales stunt, and for me worked virtually within days. Having investigated this magical drink there has never been any real scientific testing, other than animals which showed improvement! A litre is approx £3.00 and if you remove all fruit drinks like Orange, Grapefruit, Pineapple, Lemon/Lime and just drink this juice I just hope it brings you the same rewards as me. After weeks of depression I am again starting to get some life back. Reading into the effect on the body the TART CHARRY JUICE actually stops the COX1 and COX2 which is good for AS. Please try this as does virtually what most NAIDs do without killing your organs or giving you stomach ulcers. May this work for you all. God made this planet and I believe put every cure in his garden. I'm not deeply religious but makes you feel you get your old life back! Take care all...Rx

Hi, any health food stores sell this. Funnily enough i was looking for juices that may help my cause with Reactive arthritus. I have read numerous articles about certain juices helping and some not. One was pommegranite and the other coconut water, but an assistant in my health food shop recommended cherry juice also which id never heard of.

I have tried the Pure Cherry Juice and also Tart Cherry Capsules over the years and really got no help for the OA issues I've dealt with for MANY yrs....

I've tried so much...most days I drink ACV in clean water with a splash of honey or stevia....

Lately taking more Coconut Oil, CO is like a miracle for many...read all the great info on CO out there...helps thyroid too.
