What Is Uric Acid & what causes it?

Uric Acid In Your Body

Uric acid is produced from purine and excreted in our urine. High uric acid content can lead to a type of arthritis known as gout. Saturation levels of uric acid in blood may result in kidney stones when the urate crystallizes in the kidney. Some patients with gout eventually get uric kidney stones.

Uric acid is cause by a high intake of purine-rich food. High purine sources like animal internal organ food include liver, beef kidneys, brains, meat extracts, anchovies, sardines, herring, mackerel, scallops and etc. A small amount of purine is also found in beef, pork, poultry, fish, seafood and some vegetables like asparagus, lentils, dried peas, beans, oatmeal & wheat bran.

In some cases, people have high uric acid level for hereditary reasons and diet can be also a factor. Eating large amounts of sea salt can also cause increased levels of uric acid. Moderate intake of purine-containing food is not associated with an increased risk of gout.

  1. I have been using tart cherries for my arthritis for the past six months. I learned about some tart cherry capsules them from my doctor. But since taking them my muscles feel great. I recently discovered a free tart cherry book that tells how tart cherries can help with arthritis and muscle pain. It’s a good book and best of all it is free. It is called Tart Cherry Health Report. You can get it from Traverse Bay Farms
