I can't say that I've evaluated the dried tart cherries. I use them in rotation with other dried fruit - usually Craisins and dried blueberries, but sometimes apricots and pineapple as well.
And I don't use dried fruit every day.
But I would say that I have had no negative effects.

It's probably something you should try yourself. And monitor it for efffects!

Sorry I can't be any more helpful.
I came to the dried tart cherries from my husband buying them - he's type 2 diabetes. And I decided to try them be ause my friend's husband was told to take cherries to reduce his likelihood of flair-ups with gout. I have also been tested for gout on a couple of occasions and been told that is not the problem. I have also told my medics that the problem is arthritis.
But, you know - left hand and right hand!

I really enjoy the dried tart cherries on a morning I decide to have cereal.
I take a fresh fruit and a dried fruit, usually, when I'm having a cereal breakfast. Which gives me plenty of opportunities to try different combinations. And so increase my variety and my "colours".

I don't know about tart cherry juice, but I do like dried tart cherries better than raisins!

Arthritis can be a pain in the butt but it's manageable. Find a good rheumatologist that you can talk to, exercise and eat right and you will lose it! Welcome! emoticon

welcome to the team! I also use tart cherry, but I have mine in capsule form and it does help with the inflammation.

Welcome Burgs!!! Like your attitude!! If you have a pool or hot tub that you can use, get in it!! Makes the exercises easier on the joints etc. Also, TART CHERRY JUICE is great for arthritis!!!
