Best of a bad situation
on March 3, 2012
Should preface this by saying that I find tart cherry juice fairly revolting in general, but it's a necessary evil for me as it's one of the few things that REALLY helps my gout. I bought this juice to both help my flare ups as well as help me MAINTAIN a healthy diet which will prevent future flare ups. That's the hard part for me because you don't really think about it until you have a flare up, and by then it's too late because there is no immediate relief...at best you start to feel better in a day or two. But that is SO much better than a week or two or more.
So, if you suffer from gout, I would highly recommend making tart cherry juice (some people also say black cherry juice works as well but that's even worse than tart for me so...) a part of your regular health regimen. I intend to drink constantly during a flare up, and then a serving every other day or so to maintain. It's a lot of trial and error to find a system that works for you and it varies from person to person. So keep at it.
That being said, I've tried many juices and while I don't "like" any of them, Cheribundi is FAR AND AWAY the best I've tried, and the fact that it comes in 8 oz bottles makes grabbing and going much easier, which is going to let me remember to drink it more. It's more convenient to grab the small bottle than pour in a cup, or make your own drink from juice extract (if this isn't a concern for you, I'd recommend purchasing the 3 32 oz bottles as they're slightly cheaper for the same amount, I'm paying the extra bit for convenience). This product is going to be a regular purchase for me and I will recommend it to anyone with similar problems.
