Let’s talk about gout and gout prevention.
It’s been found that there is no correlation between levels of uric acid in the blood and gout attacks. But, we also know that the pain involved in gout attacks is due to uric acid crystal formation creating inflammation.
The main medication for gout works by inhibiting the formation of uric acid. However, it has serious potential side effects.
The top natural remedies for gout are celery seeds and tart cherries. Both of these can help inhibit the enzyme that makes uric acid in the body.
Other natural remedies to get rid of gout:
• Celery leaves
• Leafy greens
• Omega-3 fatty acids
While uric acid can be a beneficial antioxidant, some interesting data suggests that it becomes a pro-oxidant when it gets into the tissues. This makes sense because when it gets into the arteries, it can cause inflammation and lead to problems like high blood pressure—and when it gets into the joints, it can cause inflammation and lead to problems like gout.
Nitric oxide is beneficial for both the cardiovascular system and gout. Gout patients experience a lot of inflammation, free radical damage, and oxidative stress—and they need nitric oxide to help counter these things.
Nitric oxide can also help regulate the enzyme that makes uric acid and can suppress certain triggers of gout attacks.
Potassium is also important for gout patients because it increases nitric oxide in a potent way.
Ways to help prevent gout:
1. Increase your potassium intake
2. Decrease your sodium
3. Eat foods that increase nitric oxide (celery leaves, tart cherries, leafy greens)
4. Avoid fructose and sugar
5. Support your kidneys (Renafood)
