Well, there have been a few studies suggesting the black cherry juice may help in decreasing the serum uric acid levels and may be helpful for gout; however these are yet to be proved substantially.
Hope this information helps.
My husband has Gout and that's the first thing we go out and purchase when it flares ups. Usually we get frozen black cherries along with the natural 100% black cherry juice (usually found in the health food aisle) and make concentrated smoothies in the blender. It isn't an instant cure but he usually starts feeling better the next day. I've also heard the same thing about strawberries but those haven't worked as well for us.
