Interesting article, but why so specifically cherries? There are lots of anti-inflammatory anti-oxidant foods - I'm left wondering if cherries are in any way special... sadly it just scratches the surface.

Kuehl used juice from Michigan-grown Montmorency cherries. He says they contain more antioxidants than any other fruit, including blueberries and pomegranates-- or Bing and Lambert cherries.
So I guess it reinforces the need for lots of antioxidants in the diet.

1. Hey...you came back! Better than that damn book spammer PT (and yes, shaved kitty, he was pimping his stuff...had no interest in the site and don't blame it on me whopping him on the nose). I guess you are not a spammer.

2. If dieting, would recommend whole cherries instead. Volumetrics is a ppowerful way of acheiving satiation and preventing binges. Of course, for those not dieting, juice would be fine. But then no whining about weight loss.

3. It's interesting that the real cherrie group repported more pain. also, I get the impression (study does not really say) that the placebo was discernable by tast from the tart drink. I think these show some non-blindness and thus a danger of bias.

Travis,
Do you know if it was the cherry juice specifically or would increasing anti-oxidants to the level of the Montmorency cherry juice have the same effect. Sorry, all the big words in the article confused me.

Poly, why in the hell did you think this article was spam?

Antioxidants are funny. They remind me of the other term people always use, when something has electrolytes. I wonder how many people who actually use these terms really even know what they are (and if anyone's seen Idiocracy, you know what I'm talking about :grin: )

But I'm assuming boardposters here do. I've always heard blueberries have the anti-oxidants out of the common fruits. But even if the cherries do have more I doubt it would be a vast significant quantity more, unless there's something specific to cherries, there's probably other juices one could use...

So are you saying I can shoot myself and while eating cherries, and be A ok?

Ahh too late i'm going right now to test this.

I don't think this is spam, really.

It's not spam, or I would have axed it already. And Travis, good come back on Poly.

heeheehee


this is actually quite a surprise to me. A couple of years ago I remember a friend of mine telling me that cherries were good for your recovery. I dismissed it as the usual 'broscience' that you always get but the boy seems to have been on to something. Weird.

All fruits contain some degree of antioxidants, but specifically cherry juice is known to also have anti-inflammatory properties. I'm not sure if the scientific community knows why. Other natural anti-inflammatories are bromelein (from pineapples) and curcumin (from the spice turmeric).

There are natural anti-inflammatory pills available that contain these ingredients, with the claims that they work as well as NSAIDS like Ibuprofen but with less stress on the stomach. I used to take them and found they were pretty good but not quite as effective. So if you are looking for mild anti-inflammation, then it's worth considering.

Google any of those 3 for more - there are loads of articles (some of them are even reputable).

Well, I didn't spell it out in my first comment, but when I think anti-inflammatory, I think Omega 3. I was going to do a clinical trial, that'd be the first thing I'd look at.

It has to do with Anthocyanins. They're found in all berries and they may have little or no benefit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthocyanin

There were some positive rat experiments followed by the smell of money.

At any rate, it wouldn't be the juice that provides the benefit, it's the whole fruit. In the rat experiment they had to powder the cherries in order to get the rat to consume enough to make a difference.
