Cherry tincture helps treat arthritis, gout, and allergies, and is also beneficial for digestive disorders. You can only prepare the healing drink during the season, as fresh berries are needed.

How to make the healing drink, according to Strona Zdrowia.

Cherry drink recipe

Cherry is a low-calorie seasonal fruit that tempts with its taste from mid-May to late July. To preserve the taste of summer longer, it is worth making jam or tincture from it, which is often called cherry vodka.

It is best to make tincture from dark varieties, as the darker the color of the fruits, the higher the content of antioxidants.

To prepare it, you will need just a few ingredients, including pitted cherries.

Some people also add cherry stems to the tincture, which gives it cleansing and diuretic properties.

Ingredients for the tincture:

  • 1 kg pitted cherries without stems,
  • 500 ml 40% alcohol (vodka),
  • 500 ml rectified spirit,
  • 0.6 kg sugar.

Step-by-step preparation recipe:

Thoroughly wash the cherries, put them in a sterilized 3-liter jar, and cover with alcohol.

Tightly close the jar and leave it for at least 5 weeks at room temperature in a place with moderate sunlight. Don't forget to stir the jar thoroughly every 3-4 days.

Then strain the resulting alcoholic liquid and tightly close it in a jar. Finely chop the fruits, sprinkle with sugar, and mix well.

Set aside for 3 weeks in a place with moderate sunlight and stir once a day.

When the sugar is dissolved, strain everything through cheesecloth or special paper. Discard the fruits and mix the resulting syrup with the previously poured alcohol.

Strain the tincture 2-3 times through cheesecloth or paper, then pour into bottles, seal tightly, and leave for at least 3 months. After this time, the tincture is ready for consumption.

Cherry tincture for rheumatism, gout, and hypertension

Cherries are fruits with valuable nutritional properties. They contain a significant amount of potassium (222 mg per 100 g), which regulates the water-electrolyte balance and has a beneficial effect on the proper functioning of the circulatory system.

Additionally, cherries are a valuable source of antioxidant vitamins (A, C, E), which protect cells and tissues from the harmful effects of free oxygen radicals. The fruit also contains quercetin, which reduces the concentration of LDL cholesterol in the blood and alleviates allergy symptoms, including discomfort, itching in the throat, sneezing, and tearing.

The tincture also contains cyanidin, a compound with sedative and anti-inflammatory properties, so it is often consumed by people suffering from rheumatism.

This substance also reduces the level of uric acid in the blood, which is beneficial for gout. However, phytotherapists recommend that people with gout consume no more than 15-20 ml of tincture per day, as alcohol can worsen the condition.

The berries are a source of fruit acids, which stimulate digestion and increase appetite. Due to these properties, the tincture can alleviate symptoms of digestive disorders, including abdominal pain and cramps, bloating, heartburn, and nausea.

Thanks to its healing properties, cherry tincture is recommended for use in various diseases, including:

  • poor digestion,
  • parasitic infections of the digestive system,
  • ischemic heart disease,
  • elevated LDL cholesterol levels in the blood,
  • rheumatism.

Tincture is not a medicine, so it cannot replace pharmacological treatment. Additionally, patients with ischemic heart disease should consult a doctor about its consumption.
