According to researchers with the
Baylor Research Institute, tart cherries could be a promising
pain-reliever for osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis, the most common type
of arthritis, is a degenerative illness typically affecting the hands,
feet, spine, and large weight-bearing joints, such as the hips and
a significant improvement in pain and function after taking tart cherry
pills for eight weeks.
Montmorency tart cherries are among the best studied natural
products, and they have often been anecdotally linked to beneficial
effects on osteoarthritis and other types of arthritis as well.
