Uric acid is produced from the natural breakdown of your body’s cells and from the foods you eat. Most of the uric acid is filtered out by the kidneys and passes out of the body in urine. Most of the time, a high uric acid level occurs when your kidneys don’t eliminate uric acid efficiently. High levels of uric acid in the blood can cause solid crystals to form within joints. This causes a painful condition called gout. Prevention is better than cure! You can take care of yourself and improve your condition by eating just the right natural foods. Disclaimer: This is NOT a treatment for uric acid but a healthy diet to keep those unwanted level low! Eat well and live well.
