Cherry Juice For Gout

 

Around the world, people have often turned to cherry juice for gout, as it is known to reduce the symptoms and underlying factors that contribute to this condition. Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis in which an excess of uric acid is present in the body, causing small, crystal-like formations in the joints, which can be extremely painful. A gout attack often occurs after a night of heavy drinking, in which the concentration of uric acid in the blood rises rapidly, or after physical activity that causes these acidic crystals to shift position in the joints. These gout attacks can comprise 8-12 hours of severe inflammation and pain, followed by a few days of discomfort. The interval between gout attacks can be days or years, depending on your treatment approach and lifestyle.

While there are certain pharmaceutical drugs that can counter the symptoms of gout, many people instead turn to traditional remedies and changes in their diet, considering that uric acid levels are highly influenced by what you eat – namely rich, sugary and high-fat foods. One of the most trusted remedies for gout, however, comes from an unexpected source – cherry juice!

Cherry Juice For Gout

The use of cherry juice for gout is a relatively new remedy, as the beneficial effects of this fruit were only connected to gout in the 20th century. Different cherry varieties are generally rich in certain minerals and vitamins, many of which can help to prevent inflammation, but the organic compounds and antioxidants found in cherries are where the real benefits occur. In particular, tart cherries or sour cherries are rich in anthocyanins, which are powerful components that can effectively block pro-inflammatory compounds in the body. There are also certain bioflavonoids that can help to lower overall uric acid levels in the body by improving the function of the kidneys.

When the kidneys are working better, they process purines more effectively, release less uric acid into the bloodstream, and thereby reduce the chance of those crystals clumping and forming painful growths at various joints or extremities. By further blocking the pro-inflammatory compounds that the body releases when it detects a foreign substance or growth (e.g., a clump of crystals), it can reduce the pain and discomfort of this condition. Essentially, if your joints don’t swell up, the uric acid crystals will experience less pressure and friction in the joint.

Tart cherry juice is also widely used as a diuretic, which further factors into the effect that this juice can have on gout. By stimulating urination, cherry juice can help to eliminate excess water, salts, fats and toxins from the body, which can improve the functioning of the kidney and further reduce uric acid deposition in the blood. While sweet cherry juice is more pleasant to drink, it doesn’t have as many anthocyanins or bioflavonoids as tart cherry juice.

That being said, tart cherry juice is also extremely sour, and may not be pleasant to drink in its pure form. Making tart cherry juice more drinkable, without adding more sugar to the beverage can be difficult. High concentrations of sugar – such as in the alcohol during a long night of drinking – can exacerbate gout symptoms. Some of the most common solutions for the powerful flavor of tart cherry juice is mixing it with green tea or sparkling water. Using black cherries can also be a solution, as the flavor is much more palatable, and its nutrient profile lies somewhere between sweet cherries and tart cherries.

Side Effects Of Cherry Juice

While cherry juice for gout appears to be an excellent remedy, there are some potential side effects involved, as tart cherry juice can lead to weight gain and gastrointestinal problems.

  • Weight Gain: Considering that a single glass of cherry juice contains an average of 140 calories, those who are drinking cherry juice in excess to relieve gout symptoms may be compromising their calorie limits for the day, which can lead to weight gain. Unfortunately, obesity is often a precursor to symptoms of gout, so drink this juice in moderation.
  • Stomach Issues: Cherry juice has a high level of sorbitol, which is a sugar alcohol that can have a strong effect on digestion. In excess, the sorbitol found in cherry juice can lead to diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems, including cramping, bloating and indigestion.

Two Kombucha Flavors for Fall: Ginger Pear and Apple Cinnamon

total KOMBUCHA 250ml glass bottle

 

As a nice change from our favorite kombucha flavor, in the Fall I like to make the most of autumn's seasonal fruits by making ginger pear and apple cinnamon kombucha. I originally posted these recipes several years ago, and thought I'd re-post them now that Fall has arrived. 

Required Ingredients and Equipment

To make flavored kombucha, you need to start with some plain kombucha. You can see my recipe for making kombucha tea here. 

Once the fruit and spices are added, the kombucha is allowed to ferment for 2 days on the counter to develop the flavors and create a bit of fizz. 

Mason jars work well for making these flavored kombucha drinks. If you want your kombucha to be extra fizzy, Fido jars work well.  

Recipe: Ginger Pear Kombucha

Ginger pear kombucha has a delicate pear flavor, just mildly sweet. 

Makes 1 quart

  • 1/2 cup diced ripe pears (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 1/4 tsp finely minced fresh ginger (I use a garlic press to mince the ginger), or a couple smallish chunks of peeled ginger
  • 3&1/2 cups finished kombucha tea
  1. Combine all ingredients in a quart mason jar. 
  2. Cover tightly and allow to ferment for 2 days at room temperature. 
  3. Transfer to the refrigerator.  The pears can be left in while the kombucha is stored in the fridge. 
  4. If desired, the kombucha can be strained before drinking it to remove the pears. We think these fermented pears actually taste fabulous, so we like to leave them in.

  Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Kombucha

 This apple cinnamon kombucha tastes like tart apple cider.  It is refreshing and delicious! 

 Makes 1 quart

  • 2/3 cup peeled, diced sweet-tart apples (such as Fuji)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, or 1/4 of a cinnamon stick
  • 3&1/2 cups finished kombucha tea
  1. Combine all ingredients in a quart mason jar. 
  2. Cover tightly and allow to ferment for 2 days at room temperature. 
  3. Transfer to the refrigerator.  If the apple cinnamon kombucha will not be consumed within a few days, its a good idea to strain out the apples before you store the kombucha in the fridge.
  4. Since the apples are fairly flavorless after the fermentation process, strain them out before serving the kombucha.  If you want the apple cinnamon kombucha to be more sweet like apple cider, feel free to stir in a bit of maple syrup into each glass.

Drink Your Veggies: 13 Delicious Vegetable Juice and Smoothie Recipes

It took me a long time to understand green juice. It always seemed like a silly health food fad to me, and I'm not interested in detox—I just want delicious food. But then I got a high-end blender and started making smoothies with a little spinach, a little kale, a bell pepper, just to experiment. To my surprise, I really liked them.

If you're looking for a quick, vitamin-packed breakfast or a feel-good snack, these recipes will come in handy, whether you want to start out with a fruit-sweetened smoothie or go adventurous with juices made from fennel, parsnips, or even garlic. (Don't knock it till you've tried it.)

Gateway Green Smoothie

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-01.jpg

If you're a little skeptical of drinking your veggies, this green smoothie is a good place to start. The vegetables come in the form of mild baby spinach or bright, lemony sorrel, sweetened with a ton of tropical fruit: banana, pineapple, and mango. All the ingredients are soft enough for a basic blender, so try this out before investing in high-end equipment.

Balanced Green Juice

For a deeper dive into the world of vegetable drinks, try this juice that's packed with kale, celery, cucumber, and cilantro. The greens get sweetness from apple, brightness from lime, and a little spice from ginger. Pay attention to the order in which you add ingredients to the juicer—finishing off with watery celery helps flush the other ingredients through.

Refreshing Green Juice

This cucumber juice is perked up with celery, bell pepper, fennel, and lemon. Despite using an entire fennel bulb, you won't find the anise flavor overpowering. The idea of seasoning drinks might seem foreign to you, but this one definitely needs a pinch of salt to bring out the cucumber and keep the juice from tasting flat.

Buffalo Green Juice

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-04.jpg

This juice starts off with kale, carrot, and celery, but then gets a little adventurous with a savory punch from garlic and Frank's Red Hot. Yup, this is Buffalo wing green juice—without the chicken and blue cheese, thankfully. Feel free to add as much or as little hot sauce as you'd like.

Spicy Red Juice

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-05.jpg

Vegetable juices don't have to be green to be good for you. This gazpacho-inspired number gets its beautiful red color from bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and carrots. Horseradish and garlic give the drink just enough heat to make things interesting, and a salted rim brings it all together.

Pineapple Parsnip Blood Orange Juice

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-06.jpg

This simple juice is made with vibrant-red blood orange, sweet pineapple, and earthy parsnips. While that last ingredient may seem like an outlier, starchy root vegetables are an awesome way to make a thin juice rich and creamy.

Gingery Sweet Potato Apple Juice

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-07.jpg

Like parsnips, sweet potatoes do a great job of adding body to juice. Their mellow sweetness also pairs wonderfully with tart apples and spicy fresh ginger.

Simple Orange-Carrot Juice

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-08.jpg

You don't necessarily have to have any surprising ingredients, like potatoes or garlic, in your juice—sometimes it's best to stick with the tried-and-true. This simple, refreshing juice is mostly just orange and carrot. We do give the juice a little extra flavor by adding ginger, but we use a small amount so as not to overwhelm the other ingredients.

Spicy-Tart Kale Limeade

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-09.jpg

Kale juice can be a little intense, so for this drink, we tame the greens with sweet apple juice and coconut water. By this point, you can probably tell that ginger is one of our go-to vegetable juice ingredients—we love its bright kick, which balances the sweet and tart flavors of the other components here.

Root for Mint

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-10.jpg

[Photograph: Robyn Lee]

For this juice, we return to parsnips, combining the sweet root vegetable with kale, apple, and plenty of mint. Lime juice added to the mint makes this drink super refreshing. Try to find mint that comes in big bunches, rather than in those plastic containers—you need a lot of it for this recipe.

The Kale Mary

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-11.jpg

[Photograph: Robyn Lee]

This nonalcoholic cousin to the Bloody Mary is made with kale, tomato, celery, and lemon, plus just a pinch of horseradish and a dash of soy sauce for an umami kick. The juice would be excellent with ripe, in-season tomatoes, but this time of year you'll have to go with grape or cherry tomatoes.

Asian Pear, Basil, and Lemon Juice

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-12.jpg

Apples are known for making fine juice, but one of my favorite ingredients for this purpose is crisp Asian pear. And, while spinach and kale are great greens for juicing, here we mix things up by using basil. Add celery and lemon and you've got a complex, unusual, and incredibly tasty juice for days when you're tired of the standards.

Green Grapefruit Ginger Juice

20151228-vegetable-juice-recipes-roundup-13.jpg

Though this grapefruit juice is fortified with spinach and ginger, the fruit manages to really shine through. Simple and invigorating, it's a satisfying treat on a winter day. Pack the spinach in tight for the most efficient juicing.

Every other person is on a juice fast or cleanse today. Juices are wonderful companions for detoxification and weight loss, but the key is to choose the right ones. Most of us love fruit juices, but vegetable juices are equally good – in terms of taste as well as benefits. Spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, cabbage, and broccoli – you can transform all these nutrient-packed vegetables into juices. Blend a single veggie or make a combo to suit your palate. Here are 10 of the best and healthy vegetable juices that you can prepare at home! Now, you might end up thinking as to what are the best vegetables for juicing. Given below are a few healthy vegetables whose juices can really give you a nutrition boost.

tomato juice

The pulpy, tangy flavour and the red or orange-red hue make tomato a treat for palate as well as eyes. Loaded with lycopene, tomatoes are overflowing with antioxidative properties. The antioxidants are good for detoxification and cleansing. In addition, they keep you young and radiant; the antioxidants thwart cancer, especially testicular cancer in men, by scavenging the free radicals. Drink it on its own or blend it with other veggies for an enriched drink! However, do not overindulge, as excessive tomato intake is known to produce renal stones. Check out the 4 easy and delicious tomato soup recipes.


2. Carrot Juice:

Carrot Juice

The bright orange colored veggie makes its way to the top of healthy vegetable juices. Crammed with beta-carotene, this juice is an efficient way to reap vitamin A. Naturally sweet, you can blend this vegetable with spinach, broccoli, wheatgrass etc to mask their unpleasant taste. The rich presence of beta-carotene is not only great for skin and brain but also prevents cancer, protects the arteries, fights infections, and boosts the immune system. Certain studies have shown that carrots can help eliminate putrefactive colon bacteria and intestinal parasites. Blend with apples for a energy boosting, nutrient rich drink!


Spinach Juice

3. Spinach Juice:

This leafy green veggie is the storehouse of vitamin A, vitamin K, folate, magnesium, manganese, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B2, and vitamin B6. Plus, it also meets your protein requirements while bestowing you with the goodness of vitamin E, dietary fibers, copper, zinc, selenium, and omega-3 fatty acids. No wonder, it is named the ‘king of green veggies’. All the above-mentioned nutrients play assorted essential roles to keep us healthy and glowing. There are countless benefits spinach has for your health, hair, and skin. But, there is a small restriction; the oxalic acid present in this leafy green could hamper with calcium absorption. So, restrict your intake to a maximum of three times a week to thwart unnecessary complications.


4. Cabbage Juice:

Cabbage Juice

Cabbage juice is probably one of the best vegetable for juicing, especially if you have stomach problems. Having a glass of cabbage juice daily can greatly help with ulcers. It is a great detoxifier and a cancer fighter. This vegetable contains indoles that aid in maintaining estrogen balance and metabolism regulation. Cabbage juice does not taste great alone; so just blend it with yummier ingredients like tomatoes, oranges, or carrots for a pleasant taste and added health benefits.

 


5. Broccoli Juice:

Broccoli Juice

Broccoli, another vegetable from the cruciferous family, is well known for the presence of antioxidants and vitamin C in admirable levels. Consumption of raw broccoli few times a week can prevent lung, colon, and breast cancers. However, it is extremely difficult to consume it raw so broccoli juice is a great alternative to reap these benefits. You can combine it with tomato juice for a better taste. The chlorophyll in this vegetable is good for your insulin and blood sugar levels.


Sweet Potato Juice

6. Sweet Potato Juice:

Its exceptional richness in beta-carotene makes it an ideal juicing vegetable. Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamins C and B6, manganese, potassium, copper, and iron. The anti-inflammatory properties of this tuber make it beneficial for people with arthritis and other inflammatory disorders.


7. Celery Juice:

Celery juice is a great choice to flush out the excess uric acid from your body. Therefore, people with gout issues can incorporate this leafy green juice in their diet. Its high potassium content can lower blood pressure. Celery juice also helps in getting rid of the bloating, triggered by water retention. Its powerful diuretic properties along with the ease of flushing out toxins makes celery a must include in all detoxifying regimens. Do not forget to juice your celery as it tops to reap the benefits of potassium concentrates present there. This will also help in balancing the sodium in the stalks.


8. Parsley Juice:

Parsley Juice

It is particularly beneficial in treating kidney and gallstones. It cleanses your liver and supports your heart. It might also help with arthritis. The best part is that this juice can deodorize your body as well as ward off garlic and onion scents. Since it is tasteless, you can easily add it to other juices, probably green ones, to boost their nutrient content.

 


9. Dandelion Juice:

Dandelion JuiceSince these greens are rich sources of chlorophyll, dandelion greens are effective liver, kidney, pancreas, and bowels cleansers. This juice is a mild diuretic and has proven to offer remedy from diabetes, anemia, and hypoglycemia.

10. Beetroot Juice:

Beetroot JuiceThis crimson juice is a powerhouse of nutrition. Beets are rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium, and phosphorus. These veggies also contain iron, copper, zinc, selenium, and manganese in traces. Consuming a glass of beetroot juice daily helps in lowering blood pressure, improving blood flow to the brain, and thwarting age related memory disorders such as dementia. Packed with antioxidants, the juice helps in flushing out the free radicals and thus, prevents the onset of cancer and tumors. It detoxifies your liver and kidneys as well as eliminates bad cholesterol. The folic acid in this juice is beneficial during pregnancy as it provides protection against birth defects.

A rich powerhouse of energy, it can bestow the old people with energy by widening the blood vessels and lowering the amount of oxygen required by the muscles during physical activity. If you are having a tough time in getting the required servings of these vegetables, then why not try these vegetable juices. You can even give these to your kids, however, with some added gimmicks.
