- Berries For Gout, Gout Symptoms, Natural Gout Treatments
Using Berries Works As One of the Best Natural Gout Treatments…
One of the most common natural treatments for gout symptoms is cherries. But for the same reason, many kinds of berries are super-effective natural gout treatments as well. What it all comes down to is antioxidants – more specifically, flavonoids. Flavonoids are what give natural gout treatments their power because in addition to improving the exchange of nutrients and wastes in and out of the cells, they are also a strong anti-inflammatory.
In my usual effort to bring you more sources of information, I found this from Pressbox.co.uk – they talk about 3 of the best berries to use as natural gout treatments and why – check it out:

Bored of Cherries? Try Berries for Your Gout Treatment!
Strawberries- Flavonoids are another inhibitor of the enzyme cyclooxygenase (COX), the same enzyme that is inhibited by the flavonoids in cherries and by NSAIDs such as ibuprofen. Flavonoids are helpful in the reduction of swelling. Strawberries are high in flavonoids such as pelargonidin and contain small amounts of the cyanidin, delphinidin and petunidin. Pelargonidin is the substance which makes strawberries red.
Blueberries- These little berries are quite high in anthocyanidin, an important flavonoid. As with most other berries, they are also extremely high in antioxidants. Eat plenty of these to keep your uric acid levels as low as possible.
Elderberries- Elderberries are great for gout as they are also low in purine, but high in cyanidin. However, the red elderberries shouldn’t be ingested at all, and white elderberries should not be eaten raw. If you want to get the benefits of elderberries, choose elderberry juice or elderberry extracts.

Natural Gout Treatments Should Be the First Treatment
I don’t want to explode into my usual rant about how western medicine has it all wrong and how they’ve subliminally turned the population of every industrialized country into drug addicts…but I can’t help it! LOL!
Seriously, between eating high antioxidant food, getting fresh air and good exercise, and a therapeutic daily dose of water, 95% of all gout sufferers could skip the drugs and be healthier without them if they just took advantage of natural gout treatments first…in my humble opinion.
It certainly worked that way for me and for thousands of people that I’ve helped so far.
☆ Berries are smokin’ hot for natural gout treatments!
SHARE THE LOVE!

Bert Middleton, The Original Gout Killer
“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good! And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.”
Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life.
Prescription drugs were of limited help…
And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible.
Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain. And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.
Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now.
Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle via their website TheGoutKiller.com
Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours.
And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD!
So you can finally start LIVING again!
