Neutralize Your Uric Acid problem before it’s too late!


Understanding Uric Acid

Uric acid is a waste product from the break down of purine, a substance that is made within our body and found in many of the foods we eat. It is excreted through our urine, but when too much uric acid builds up it can cause attacks of painful arthritis (gout) especially in toes and fingers. It can also result in kidney stones and blockage in the kidney.

Watch out for these foods

Certain foods trigger high level of uric acid in your body. Cut down on purine-rich foods such as organ meat, goose, duck, anchovies, mackerel, scallops, mussels and also moderate purine-rich vegetable such as asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, mushroom and green peas. Another agitator is the over-consumption of alcohol especially beer.

Indulging in these foods will increase uric acid in the blood – hyperuricemia - causing urine to become acidic. Eventually, the uric acid will crystallize in joints and tissues to trigger off a gout attack if the uric acid is not reduced.

High Uric Acid level

Prevention is key
  • Reduce intake of purine-rich foods
  • Develop a regular exercise routine
  • Drink more water – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
  • Avoid alcohol & caffeine, which causes dehydration that leads to uric acid crystallization
  • If overweight, reduce weight to prevent chronic conditions like hyperuricemia
  • Regular consumption of urine alkalinizer will help to normalize the urinary system
