Most people love summertime produce. And one popular summertime fruit may be the perfect remedy for gout sufferers. Cherries have been shown to help with this condition because they help alkalize the body systems. Many people have reported keeping their gout symptoms under control by eating 10–12 cherries a day. You can also drink cherry juice, or eat fresh or frozen cherries. Just make sure none of these options contain added sugar, as sugar can worsen symptoms.
