        Beats the Rx I was prescribed that did more harm than good.I.M.O.
        It was recommended by a lady in Ace Hardware that noticed I had trouble walking on a bad leg.
        I now have control of the problem.
        Worked quickly and i have been using it for two years and will continue.

          Comments about Vitamin Shoppe Black Cherry Concentrate (Unsweetened) - 16 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

          I had gout crystals in the tips of my thumbs and index finger, which pretty much curtailed all activities with my hands; like turning a key, using microwave, etc. I tried this product at the suggestion of a clerk at the Vitamin Shoppe. I take 2 tablespoons daily. I'm here to tell you, that after 2 months I noticed improvements. After 3 months, the crystals and most of the pain is gone! Now after 4 months, all that is left is a red area, which is disappearing. You must be patient, as this is not an over-night cure. This works, while my prescription medication failed! Highly recommend this product. I order online and save trip to store, and free shipping.

            Comments about Vitamin Shoppe Black Cherry Concentrate (Unsweetened) - 16 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

            I bought this product for my 88 year young dad on the advice of my daughter, who is a Chiropractor in Nashville. He had been having gout attacks very frequently and we did not want to give him any drugs. Within days, his gout flare-up totally stopped, and he has been able to make his hands into fists for the first time in years. He has arthritis in his joints, and the change in his ability to move is amazing. He is very active-still rides his 4-wheeler and cuts his own firewood, so this has been a blessing for him.

              I add the black cherry concentrate to my morning shake along with frozen bananas, blueberries and almond milk. As a snack I add it to organic yogurt which doubles as a fruit topping. Another use is as a drink, just add water.

                        Seems to be very good although I don't have issues with gout. I put some in a smoothie every AM. A squeeze top would prevent some of the mess that this container inevitably makes.

                                This is great stuff.. My gout attacks used to last from 5-15 days. I started taking Black Cherry Concentrate on the first sign of attack and sometimes it will stop before it even starts. If it dose start normally it will only last only 3-4 days. Much better than the 5-15 days of pain. Took it just like the bottle says to.

                                        I've been taking black cherry juice concentrate for over 7 years now ever since I had started gout attacks. Nobody knows how painful gout can be and the side affects of the pills I can do without. I've found that 3 tablespoons of this in a glass of water (12 oz.) seems to work for me. Yes pending on your diet still have gout attacks trying to come on but if you catch it in time this seems to help me and I get over those little ones much quicker. Thank you for continuing to carry this product.

                                                Teri L: The bottle suggests 8 teaspoons in 8 ounces of water. However, I use 2 soup spoons every day in my green shake and that seems to work well for me (no gout symptoms and my uric acid is back to a normal level). It may also be that I'm eating healthier, but I think the combination is what's doing it. The bottle says there are 28 carbs in 8 teaspoons. Assuming there are 2 teaspoons in a soup spoon (smaller than a regular tablespoon), that comes to 7 carbs in a soup spoon or 14 carbs in a serving. Jan 18, 2014

                                                LINDA S asked: how should I take it or does it matter. I have been taking 2 straight TBSP in the morning and at night followed by up to 2 cups of water, is this too much? Linda Sep 14, 2013

                                                Patricia B: Well it depends what you are taking it for. I use it because it helps the bursitis in my hand and take about two tablespoons in the morning in herbal tea. I would think you are taking about the right amount if it is giving you relief. Remember this is a natural fruit juice extract and about the only side effect you might have is ,well, like prune juice! (Yes I actually found
                                                that out when I took too much!) It is good if you drink lots of water to flush out uric acid if gout is your health issue. However, watch some of those bottled wate
                                                brands have extra minerals added which adds more work to
                                                your kidneys to excrete. Hope this helps you out.

                                                Claudia D: If it is agreeing with you I don't know why it would be too much. I pour about 1/4 cup into my shake each morning and I also pour it on my plain yogurt. It sweetens it and tastes better than the fruit yogurts. Sep 14, 2013

                                                LINDA S: Hi Alice,
                                                Thanks for replying. Actually it was a friend of my husband who also has gout that told him about the Black Cherry Concentrate.

                                                He thought it might be helpful for my RA which feels pretty chronic these days. So I have finished one bottle, I drink two cups of water when I get up in the morning and then I drink 2 TBSP of the concentrate and finish off another cup of water. I do this now one time a day; the first week I tried for 3 days day and night and felt somehow that might be too much because I do not mix it with anything before I swallow it; other than it mixing with the swallowed water.

                                                Seems to be helping...too early to tell for sure, I do seem to be able to get up from a seated position a little better without the pain I was used to....so I will continue to take it longer....

                                                I hope it continues to be a blessing for you....

                                                A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: does black cherry concentrate help with rheumatoid arthritis and joint pain and can it be taken straight, without water, etc.?
                                                thanks, linda

                                                karen b: It seems to have helped me, I suffer from OA of the knees, and have some RA in my hands and shoulders. Since drinking this almost daily, it seems as if the RA is in remission, I've only had my hands flare up 5 or 6 days in the past 6 monthes.

                                                I also take celebrex for my OA, but was still experiencing many more flare ups of my RA before drinking the Black Cherry Concentrate.

                                                I suppose you could drink it straight, I never have. Someone had told me that the quinine in Tonic water was helpful for their joint pain, so I mix the Black Cherry concentrate with that. I drink a 12 oz glass of this mixture almost daily.

                                                merrill m. b: Black cherry concentrate helps relieve pain in all rheumatic disorders by helping to flush excess uric acid from the body. It can either be taken straight or mixed with other liquids or foods. Ground celery seeds and/or celery seed extract are also particularly helpful for this purpose. Use both black cherry concentrate and celery seeds or celery extract on a daily basis for best results. For episodes of particularly acute joint pain, you might try using turmeric extract until the acute pain subsides. This herbal extract often gives dramatic and very welcome relief in such instances.
