Here is a really simple remedy to help manage your gout and arthritis;
So; tart cherries every day for gout. We have known this for a while, but eating cherries every day can get costly.
But did you know that Black bean broth, contains the same active ingredients as the cherries, that is; anthocyanins. These help to break down and eliminate uric acid from the blood.
Blueberry and pomegranate juice also help in the same way.
In Taiwan, black bean broth has been a traditional remedy for gout.
The bean broth can be made from most black beans (avoid black soy beans apparently)
200g black beans
2 litres water
- Rinse the black beans.
- Chop the ginger into coin-sized slices.
- Add the ginger and the beans to the pot, and bring to the boil. Simmer for 90 minutes.
- Separate the beans from the broth.
- Drink 2-3 cups (half a liter) of the broth at a time.
- Use the beans in a dish with some rice or in a curry for example.

Regular mugs of this bean juice will provide essential repair nutrients and will also slow the build up of uric acid in your, blood and tissues. It is the crystalised uric acid that causes the pain.
Of course if you can’t stomach necking this straight down, then eating the beans with the juice, in for example a re-fried beans recipe will also do the trick.
Beans, beans are good for your heart…
