Bernard Jensen’s Black Cherry Concentrate Price

The listed retail price for Bernard Jensen’s Black Cherry Concentrate is $17.89, but websites like Vitacost offer a 25% discount and sell it for a price of $13.29 per bottle. However, since one bottle contains only enough for 15-16 days, the effective monthly cost for this product is $26.58. This amount is quite high for a black cherry extract product, since many alternative products are available in the market for a much cheaper price.

Overall Value

Black cherry extract has been used for many years and in many forms to treat gout and has been found to be fairly successful, even reducing the subsequent occurrences of gout by almost one-third. However, black cherry extract is a common supplement and is available at a much lower price than this product. Product-wise, cherry extract has only one active ingredient and limited utility in treating gout.
