Tart Cherry Juice

Here is something I heard today from a doctor and wanted your opinion.

Tart Cherry Juice is supposed to be a great anti inflammatory.

because my pressure went up afer having babies, the physical and mental stress builds ups as inflammation...not just puffy eyes but in the viens and in the lining of the heart and with it being so sensitive with increased flow (kinda like walking on a blister) .

I am thinking of going out and buying some, I mean it's juice. Seems pretty harmless to me to just give it a try.

Re: Tart Cherry Juice

Fish oil is known to be a very effective anti-inflammatory as well.

Re: Tart Cherry Juice

I researched fish oil and it is used to lower blood pressure. Has anyone tried this? It did say you cant use both fish oil and bp meds at the same time.

Re: Tart Cherry Juice

You are fine to take fish oil with any BP meds...but you are not on any so no need to worry? If it does have an effect, it is over a long period of time and will not cause any instantaneous change. If your blood pressure is due to inflammation, you would know by a high C-reactive protein in your blood work. If that is the case, fish oil could help over the long run. Either way it is supposedly healthy. I take a tablespoon almost every day...

Re: Tart Cherry Juice

I am not on any but I have a 3 month supply left so I take one when I think I need it. My dog died the other night unexpectedly, so I was afraid my bp would spike so I took a lisinopril. Yesterday it was errartic and woke up with a pulse of 90 and my bp high was 135/90. I thought maybe I could take fish oil instead.

Re: Tart Cherry Juice

Ive taken fish oil for close to 10 yrs now (along with a beta blocker) and found no issues.

Fish oil doesnt help my BP any, nor does megadoses or garlic (fresh, or oil form). I have never find anything that lowers my bp other than medication!
