Gout is a type of arthritis caused by an accumulation of uric acid in the joints which causes inflammation, pain and swelling, especially in the toes, feet, ankles, hands and wrists. Gout Relief contains cherry extract which is a natural anti-inflammatory. It also inhibits an enzyme called xanthine oxidase which is responsible for the formation of uric acid. Unlike prescription gout medicines, which can have kidney and heart damaging side effects, cherry extract is healthy for the heart and detoxifies the kidneys. Gout Relief is more effective if used regularly, to prevent gout attacks, than to treat an acute gout attack. However, it does help limit the severity of damage and intensity of acute gout attacks.
