Inflammation in the body is associated with a number of conditions – from bunions to cancer. As such, researchers are always looking for ways to prevent and fight this biological response.
One surprisingly pleasant way to reduce inflammation may be to drink tart cherry juice, as Oregon Health and Science University researchers recently found it to benefit women with inflammatory osteoarthritis.
“With millions of Americans looking for ways to naturally manage pain, it’s promising that tart cherries can help, without the possible side effects often associated with arthritis medications,” said Kerry Kuehl, M.D, Dr.PH., M.S.
Authors of the study observed 20 women aged 40 to 70 who drank a glass of tart cherry juice twice per day for three weeks. The researchers found that these individuals had significantly lower levels of inflammation biomarkers in their blood at the end of the trial period, and women with the most severe arthritis appeared to benefit the most.
