Each capsule contains the following as active ingredient:
Inactive ingredients: Hypromellose (cellulose) vegetarian capsule shell (gelatin free), microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate (vegetarian – flow agent), magnesium silicate, silicon dioxide and colloidal silicon dioxide. Contains plant extracts and natural fillers, with no colourants added – therefore the colour of the capsule contents may vary slightly from batch to batch.
Cherry extract contains varied antioxidants including kaempferol, quercetin, and melatonin. These compounds may have anti-inflammatory effects which may explain the benefits seen in gout sufferers. A small scale study using cherry extract has been shown to significantly decrease plasma urate levels. Some constituents found in cherry extract are also believed to inhibit COX-2 enzymes important in the natural inflammatory pathway
