Cherries and cherry juice
Robin Foroutan, RDN, an integrative medicine dietician from New York City, says that eating cherries may also be beneficial to those with RA. Eating tart or sour cherries or drinking the juice from tart or sour cherries may have additional anti-inflammatory properties for individuals with RA. Not only are cherries thought to be healthy for individuals with RA, but research that was published in the August, 2013 edition of the medical journal, Osteoarthritis and Cartilage, implies that cherries may also be beneficial for other types of arthritis, including gout and osteoarthritis.
While there is no affirmative proof that cherries are beneficial for RA or other types of arthritis, nutritionists still suggest that all individuals should try to incorporate a few cherries each morning in their breakfast cereal or oatmeal, and then weigh the health response that the body shows.
