Cherry extract has been found to lower the incidence of gout attacks substantially. The liquid form of Max Gout Relief has long-term benefits. The capsule only provides relief from existing symptoms and does not do much to prevent re occurrence.
The liquid form comes in a 450ml bottle and costs $24.99 while the bottle of capsules (containing 60 capsules) is priced at $18.99. The two forms vary in ingredient quantity and the capsules do not contain cherry extract.
The company does not guarantee the quality or effectiveness of its supplements and does not offer refund if you happen to be dissatisfied with it. Consumers want to feel confident in trying out a new product. It is disappointing that this product does not offer the security of a money back guarantee. Many comparable products offer guarantees.
Given its limited number of ingredients, this product is slightly overpriced. This product also does not have any guarantee or quality-assurance. The capsule form of Max Nutrition Gout Relief does not even contain cherry extract and has no long-term benefit and is quite overpriced for the value it delivers.
