Unsweetened tart cherry juice--how much daily?

Monday, March 05, 2012

Unsweetened tart cherry juice emoticon--how much must one drink daily to get health benefits?

I was using a tart cherry emoticon concentrate but realized it has lots of sugar. That defeats the purpose, right? I had one or 2 tablespoons daily.

I just ordered unsweetened tart cherry juice. But how much do I need to have daily for health benefits? I have fibromyalgia. and I know I need to have anti-inflammatory foods. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Did you get the cherry juice and how much did you decide to consume.

    Chris read this article and let me know what you think about it, also if on blood thinners a need to consult with your doctor is suggested, this is new to me.

as far as the sugar content 2 Tablespoons=21grams, but having diabetes, I would count that as my fruit serving and add nuts or/and seeds shortly after taking.

I know for gout when flared up it is recommended to take 2 oz mixed in 6 oz of water 4 times a day, then after flareup is relaxed take 1 oz 3 x a day for maintenance.

I am planning on making a trip to a health store soon, and will check out there information about cherry concentrate.

    Dr. Oz got me started on the tart cherry juice. Mine is concentrated and 2 TBS. have 15 grams of sugar.

    Be careful with juice. If it is not concentrated, you might try 2 or 3 ounces daily and test if you are diabetic. Sorry, I forgot. Cherries are a lot smaller than oranges, but 1 small to mediium orange is a serving, and about 3 to 4 oz. or 1/2 c. measuring cup is a serving. Juice is more potent because we do not get the fiber to slow down the sugar uptake. There are lots of anti-inflammatory foods. Get a list and try to incorporate several in small appropriate servings daily.

I don't drink any juice because of the effect on my blood sugar. The capsules might be a beter way to go.
