Metadata[+] Show full item record
Anti-inflammatory cherry use is not a new idea. In the 1950s cherries were recommended for arthritis and gout. However, the first scientifically rigorous cherry studies came several decades later. In 2001 a group at Michigan State University used in vitro enzyme assays to show that cherry juice has COX-2 inhibitory activity similar to both ibuprofen and naproxen.
