love this stuff - means I never have to visit my GP, 3 Aug 2011
I love this juice, as it has several advantages:
1. It tastes great, and because it needs diluted with lots of water, it increases the amount of water I drink daily by about 500%
2. You can't overdose - and I regularly have four or five times the daily dose - as it's all natural.
3. It's brilliant as a sauce mixed in with Natural yoghurt, or with ice-cream, or sloshed over cereal.
4. It keeps my gout at bay, and always helps reduce the effects if I do have an attack because of overconsumption of something naughty.
My GP poo-poo'd my decision not to take the medication he prescribed me for gout 3 years ago, and I'm glad to say I've not had to visit him since - but I did meet him while hill-walking recently and he seemed surprised to see me so active. My gout tends to occur in my knees, and renders me a hobbling grump, so my self-management of it is a success thus far.
Other things to take for gout: lots of water, even more water, celery, apple cider vinegar, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, avocados, Garlic, Parsley, Saffron, Vitamin C supplements, B complex, Fish Oil and lots more water.
Things to avoid if you suffer from gout: Alcohol, meat, poultry, fish, anchovies, bouillon, brains, broth, gravy, heart, herring, kidneys, liver, mackerel, meat extracts, mussels, partridge, roe, sardines, scallops, shrimp, yeast, cranberries, oranges, pineapples, tomatoes, high-acidity fruits and juices.
Best of Luck
