High levels of uric acid in the bloodstream, also known as hyperuricemia, can come about as a result of either an increase in the production of uric acid in the body or a decreased excretion of it through the kidneys. This can lead to problems such as gouty arthritis (uric acid crystal deposits in joints, typically the big toe), kidney stones, and renal failure. Furthermore, recent studies have also been associated high blood uric acid levels with cardiovascular disease and hypertension.
Factors that can help contribute to high uric acid levels include a diet high in purines, excess alcohol consumption, obesity, renal insufficiency, genetics, underactive thyroid, and diabetes. Certain cancers, chemotherapy, and other medications, such as diuretics, may also help contribute to it.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
As a natural cleanser and detoxifier, apple cider vinegar can help remove uric acid from the body. This vinegar contains malic acid that helps to break down and eliminate uric acid. Furthermore, it helps to restore the alkaline acid balance in the body and provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
Low-fat milk and other dairy products have been associated with lower plasma urate concentrations and a reduced risk of gout. Skimmed milk, for example, contains orotic acid that decreases the re-absorption of uric acid, and promotes its removal from the body through the kidneys.
Wheatgrass helps to restore alkalinity in the blood. Furthermore, it's rich in vitamin C, chlorophyll, and phytochemicals that help to promote detoxification. It's also a very good source of protein and amino acids as alternative to eating animal protein.
• Each day, mix two tablespoons of wheatgrass juice with a squeeze of lemon juice until your uric acid levels come down.
