CHERRY SMOOTHIES TO COMBAT ARTHRITIS. 

Image

Cherries have long been used to sooth chronically inflamed joints. In my experience, cherries aren’t consistently effective in helping cases of degenerative arthritis, but when used in conjunction with a dairy-free diet, I find that they can significantly reduce joint pain caused by metabolic-type arthritides like rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and psoriatic arthropathy.

Cherry smoothies are best enjoyed right away, as they tend to develop a slight jello-like consistency after a few hours.
Some people tend to experience an overactive GI tract if they eat too many cherries in one sitting, so it’s best to start with less than you think you’ll need, observe how your body responds, and go from there with subsequent servings.

Whether you’re looking to soothe inflamed joints or just share these mouthwatering cherry smoothies with loved ones, I trust that you’ll enjoy.
