Cherries and their juice have a long history of use in food and cooking all over the world. Mention of cherries can be found in the literature of the ancient Chinese, Greeks and South Asians.
Medicinally, they have been used for a variety of pain-related conditions, including arthritis, gout, back pain and tendon injuries. It is often said that tart cherries have more medicinal value than sweet cherries.
For use in reducing pain after intensive excercise, a dose of 12 ounces of cherry juice twice daily has been tested in the tiny study noted earlier.
A typical dosage recommendation for gout is a 1/2 pound of whole cherries daily.
