Cherries contain a substance called anthocyanins, which gives them their bright red colour and is a powerful anti-inflammatory, which could also help to reduce the swelling from gout.
It doesn’t have to be cherry juice either, eating a handful of cherries should also have a beneficial effect.
In addition to their gout-fighting capabilities, cherries are a very healthy snack to enjoy.
Many people with gout are advised by their doctor to try their best to shed a few pounds, as extra weight puts more pressure on your joints and makes gout attacks more likely.
