In a recent pilot study, more than half of the enrolled patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knees experienced significant improvement in pain and function after taking the cherry pills for eight weeks. The pill is made from whole Montmorency tart cherries, ground up and sold as a soft gelatin capsule under the brand name CherryFlexÂ®.
Because of the promising results, the Baylor Research Institute and Arthritis Care & Research Institute are currently enrolling patients in a second, related study.
