Three capsules provide cherrypure (freeze-dried cherry-skin concentrate) (1500 mg). Other ingredients: Vegetable cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, silica. Cherrypure contains anthocyanins, which help to balance uric acid levels. In addition, this substance is a source of antioxidants, which enhance the body’s own resistance to oxidant stress.

More so, this formula contains 1500 mg of tart cherry which is the optimal amount to help reduce the pain linked to gout, and to lower uric-acid levels, preventing future attacks. However, this formula lacks other ingredients such as garlic, yucca, folic, milk thistle, dandelion, rutin, or turmeric, which are all ingredients found in clinical studies to be effective in treating gout.
Dosage instructions, according to the manufacturer, are to take three (3) capsules daily, with meals. As mentioned, the total number of capsules daily do provide the optimal amount of tart cherry to be effective. However, the manufacturer does not indicate what time of the day these supplements should be taken, and if they can be taken together to provide optimal benefits for the end-user. In addition, those who are pregnant, nursing, or on prescription medication should consult a doctor before using this supplement.
Tart Cherry Extract is available directly from the manufacturer, via its website. A bottle of 90 capsules costs $16.99 (excluding shipping fee, as shipping fees are only applicable on orders over $25.00). This is a discounted price as the original price was $19.99. No package deals are provided; bulk offers could be even more economical to the regular user.

Our Conclusive Review About The Vitamin Shoppe Tart Cherry Extract
This product should be effective in treating gout since it contains the optimal quantities of tart-cherry extract. There is a 30-day guarantee on this product. However tart-cherry extract alone may not suffice in treating all aspects of gout. The guarantee, in addition to being complex, does not allow for the buyer to try the product without loss of payment. There is also the concern of no reviews on this supplement. As such, it might be better to select another product on the market than this one. One, that can offer more value to the end-user’s health.
