A small 2013 study found slightly improved WOMAC scores for people who had consumed cherry juice for the 6 weeks of the study. This was in comparison with receiving a placebo, but the difference was not significant. It is important to note that a corporation that makes and sells cherry juice funded this research.
One 2012 study looked at 633 people with gout and revealed that those who ate cherries or cherry extract had a lower risk of repeated gout attacks. The researchers thought that this could be due to the anthocyanins in the fruit.
Gout is caused by an accumulation of uric acid in the blood. Cherry juice contains compounds that can relieve gout pain by lowering the levels of uric acid.
