It was sweet red cherries (not Ranier - the yellow peachy ones and not tart cherries) that were touted as a cure for gout (vid below.) When this came out a couple of weeks ago I had just run into a friend who was suffering a severe gout attack. I texted him the instructions from the video and he followed them -- 16 sweet red cherries daily (plus what not to eat.) When I saw him a week later he said he'd been feeling a bit better every day and that very morning when he woke up he realized he was completely well. That was a pretty cool confirmation of what plants vs. pharmaceuticals could do.

They've long been touted as a remedy for gout so anti-inflammatory they are.

In the video linked below, Dr. Gregor mentions tart cherries have a phytonutrient with anti-inflammatory effects on par with aspirin and ibuprofen. Maybe that has something to do with it.

Matt Frazier (No Meat Athlete) posted an interesting article about how tart cherries boosted his performance. Has anyone else tried this? This link also has a basic " how to put together a smoothie". His recipe packs in the calories though... www.nomeatathlete.com/tart-cherries-
