Excess uric acid can result in gout. To lower the uric acid level in the body you can include wheatgrass juice, apple cider vinegar, dairy products, cherries, lemon juice and high fiber foods to your daily diet. Apart from that cutting back from high fat food, limiting alcohol consumption and exercising regularly can drastically make a difference to the uric acid levels in our body.

Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:

High levels of uric acid in the blood, also called hyperuricemia, can result from either increased production of uric acid in the body or decreased excretion of it through the kidneys. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, adding foods high in dietary fiber may help lower uric acid levels in your blood.

Foods to Control Uric Acid Levels:

Apple cider vinegar: It can help alleviate high uric acid levels by changing the pH values of your blood.

-Lemon Juice: Lemon juice produces an alkaline effect and helps neutralize uric acid. Also, the high vitamin C content helps lower uric acid levels.

-Cherries: Cherries and dark berries contain chemicals that help reduce uric acid levels.

-Water: Drinking plenty of water helps optimize uric acid filtering. It helps dilute the uric acid and stimulates the kidneys to eliminate excess amounts from the body through urine.

-Cold-pressed olive oil: Using cold-pressed olive oil can help manage high uric acid levels.

-Dairy Products: Low-fat milk and dairy products have been associated with lower plasma urate concentrations and reduced risk of gout.

-Wheatgrass Juice: Wheatgrass helps restore alkalinity in the blood and helps alleviate uric acid levels.

-Baking Soda: Baking soda, also called bicarbonate of soda, is highly beneficial for lowering uric acid levels and reducing gout pain.

-High-fiber foods: A diet rich in soluble fibers such as Oats, Spinach and Broccoli etc. is highly recommended to lower the uric acid levels.

Important Tips:

-Limit high-purine foods, such as meat, poultry and fish.

-Limit your alcohol intake as it interferes with the elimination of uric acid.

-Limit or avoid foods sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup as they tend to increase uric acid levels.

-Cut back on foods high in fat as it lowers the body’s ability to eliminate uric acid.

-Get regular exercise and maintain a healthy weight.

It says that cherries will help lower uric acid. Will unsweetened, concentrated, black cherry juice do the same thing or is the whole fruit required?

OK ... so the pain of gout is caused by Uric acid crystallising in the joints.

Uric acid is exactly that ... an acid ...

So could you please explain how taking Apple Cider Vinegar (Acetic acid) or Lemon Juice (Citric acid) can raise the pH and neutralise the Uric acid, when, being both acids themselves, they would lower it or, at best, maintain it below neutral ?

@amikescott Because they are converted during ingestion and become alkaline.  I had the same questions until I started using 4 years ago but I was shocked at how well it works.  Tablespoon in a cup of water, hard to swallow but worth it.

I can immediately tell when I have eaten something that my body doesnt like. I didnt recognize these hints an clues before. It is very liberating that now I can. Makes life so much easier then hurting in my joints all the time. Your body knows best and these simple ideas really worked for me.
