Cure Gout - Vitamin C for Gout Treatment - Just How Easy is It to Get the Required Daily Amount from Food?

An earlier article I quoted examples of studies that have shown Vitamin C can reduce uric acid (UA) levels, the objective of all gout treatments whether by pharmaceuticals or natural remedies. The usual uric acid level target is 6mg/dL in men, slightly less in women. This is the level below which the trouble-causing MSU crystals, formed mainly from uric acid, may dissolve and thus alleviate or cure gout. However, there are no ironclad guarantees this will happen at that uric acid level.

The Late Dr

Robert Atkins (the Atkins Diet) also believed Vitamin C is helpful in gout treatment. It was one of the vitamins in his anti gout formula, as explained in "Dr. Atkins' Vita-Nutrient Solution" (Simon & Schuster Inc., . He included it because of a cause of gout theory that runs on these lines... :D.


Just add up from the following list to get 500 mg daily. Source figures are taken from the USDA's (United States Department of Agriculture) National Nutrient database release SR It is accessible online - search "National Nutrient database."

Strawberries Should be Considered Very Carefully by Gout Sufferers

The Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus (1707- stated that a diet of only strawberries had cured his gout. His linkage of vitamin C and gout gains extra weight from the fact that Linnaeus was a botanist. He probably knew a lot about strawberries. Remember that it is very important to have a disciplined mode of writing when writing. This is because it is difficult to complete something started if there is no discipline in writing especially when writing on Gout Diet :o.

  • And here are a couple of surprises.
  • Two spices or condiments that are high in vitamin C and not often mentioned: paprika 100 grams (71mg); prepared horseradish 100 grams (25mg).


Uric acid is a major body antioxidant and antioxidants quell free radicals. Excessive uric acid is produced because of free radical production. i.e the body deals with free radicals by creating excess uric acid. Therefore provide the body with more antioxidants so that it doesn't need to create excess uric acid.

A few words about strawberries Berries are excellent foods for a gout diet, principally because of their flavonoid anthocyanidins. (It is the anthocyanidins in cherries which are believed to have positive effects on lowering uric acid levels). These act as antioxidants thus boosting general health which is so important for gout sufferers. But among the anthocyanidin berries, strawberries stand out as the highest in Vitamin C. It is only through sheer determination that we were able to complete this composition on Gout. Determination, and regular time table for writing helps in writing essays, reports and articles. :D.

But Do Not Follow a Strawberries Only Diet

This is a crash diet which is not a good idea since crash diets can trigger gout, and may worsen it. But if you suffer from gout strawberries are an excellent addition to your gout diet plan, because of their anthocyanidins, (the dominant one is pelargonidin), and their Vitamin C. Was it this combination that cured Linnaeus' gout? Perhaps it was.

This is Not the Usually Explained Purine Theory

However it should be noted that not all gout sufferers have excessive uric acid in their bodies but most do. If you have gout and excess uric acid, the important thing is to try to reduce it. Writing an article on Purine was our foremost priority while thinking of a topic to write on. This is because Purine are interesting parts of our lives, and are needed by us. :shock:

red peppers 190mg; orange juice 124 mg; green peppers 120 mg; strawberries 106 mg; orange 96 mg; grapefruit juice 94 mg; kale 80 mg; broccoli 79mg; pineapple 74 mg; kiwi fruit 71 mg; lemon juice 61 mg; cantaloupe melon 59 mg; mango 57 mg; cauliflower 46 mg; red cabbage 40 mg; roasted chestnuts (European ) 37 mg; peas (frozen) 35 mg; raspberries 32 mg; lemon 31 mg; honeydew melon 31 mg; blackberries 30 mg; cabbage 26 mg; watermelon (one wedge ) 23 mg; tomatoes 23 mg. Since the potato is so popular, note one baked potato 202 grams size: 19 mg. :roll:


Fruits amount of vitamin C, if one whole fruit, or other amount, is the serving size: 1 papaya 188mg; 1 orange 70 mg; 1 red chili pepper 65 mg; and the juice from 1 orange 43 mg; 100 grams limes 29 mg.

To standardize and simplify this list Serving size is 1 cup unless stated; raw foods only (except peas); foods with added Vitamin C excluded; doesn't account for different varieties, country or region of origin; climate when produced and other variables; figures rounded to whole numbers. It is, if you like, the big picture. Vitamin C amounts are in mg. It is only because that we are rather fluent on the subject of Anti Gout that we have ventured on writing something so influential on Anti Gout like this!

Green tea has been touted as a beneficial elixir for many different reasons. Some claim it can help with weight loss, encourages toxins to be released from the body, and some say it might even help to fight cancer. Others believe that there is a gout green tea remedy that can help with pain and flare-ups. Those who have gout and would like to try this out should be aware of what they can expect, and they should also be sure they know the correct way to brew the tea so that it has the most positive affects on the body.

You want to prepare green tea the correct way, you have to remember that this type of tea is more delicate than black, so it must be handled as such. The pot for brewing is important. If possible, you should have what is called a yixing clay pot. If you can't find one, you may have to go to a store specializing in Chinese or Japanese cooking materials. You should never buy your tea in teabag form. Instead, buy it in its natural, dried form. And, for the best results, you should not use water from your tap. Instead, buy pure, filtered water from the store. It is rather inviting to go on writing on Uric Acid. however as there is a limitation to the number of words to be written, we have confined ourselves to this. However, do enjoy yourself reading it. :evil:

You Should Drink Your Green Tea Daily

The antioxidants in the tea are said to reduce and even eliminate gout, depending on how bad it is, and even where it is located. It can also trigger more frequent urination, which can help remove excess uric acid that leads to gout. You should give your gout green tea remedy a few weeks to see if it helps. Writing is something that has to be done when one is in the mood to write. So when we got in the mood to write about Gout, nothing could stop us from writing! :shock:

Green Tea Has Drunk in China for Health and Well Being for Centuries

The Chinese believe it to be very powerful, and use it to help with many ailments that might have otherwise gone untreated. Green tea is considered better than black tea. This is because it is in its natural form. Black tea has gone through oxidation, which causes it to lose some of its powerful healing properties. Not only is green tea better, it tends to be more pure. When buying, get a quality brand, preferably organic, for the best benefits. Isn't it amazing how much information can be transferred through a single page? So much stands to gain, and to lose about Excess Uric Acid through a single page. :roll:

Boil your water in your new pot, and then pour the water into each of the cups that you want to fill with the green tea. Once you have done this, you should then discard the remaining water in your pot. This is done for a few reasons. The first reason is to lower the temperate of the tea. It should not be made with boiling water, but rather with water that has cooled a bit. Also, this allows the pot and the ceramic cups to be warmed. After this, you should add a teaspoon of tea for every eight ounces of tea you are making into the pot and tip in the water from the cups, and you then allow it to brew for about two minutes. Ignorance is bliss, is it? Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Excess Uric Acid. So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it!


And There is More ... Recent research is suggesting that the human body has an internal intelligence that allows itself to naturally heal itself if given the proper tools. With gout, that includes your diet, nutrition, vitamins, supplements, herbs and exercise. You may be inquisitive as to where we got the matter for writing this article on Uric Acid. Of course through our general knowledge, and the Internet!


Though uric acid crystals will still be in the joints, you can dramatically decrease the gout attacks by learning how to relieve and cure gout symptoms. Let me explain! We have omitted irrelevant information from this composition on Gout Attacks as we though that unnecessary information may make the reader bored of reading the composition. :lol:


Here are some tips to get you started for curing your gout symptoms! 1. Watch what you are eating! Keep a food journal of everything that you eat and drink for one week. Try to find what foods or beverages are causing your attacks. Having been given the assignment of writing an interesting presentation on Gout Remedy, this is what we came up with. Just hope you find it interesting too!


Gout is one of the most common forms of arthritis (joint inflammation). Gout is condition that results from crystals of uric acid depositing in tissues of the body. Gout usually affects the first metatarsal phalangeal joint of the big toe (hallux) or the ankle joints. Gout most often affects the big toe but can also affect the ankle, knee, foot, hand, wrist and elbow. Approximately one million people in the United States suffer from attacks of gout. Gout is nine times more common in men than in women. It predominantly attacks males after puberty, with a peak age of 75. In women, gout attacks usually occur after menopause.

Alcohol and Certain Foods can Trigger a Gout Attack

Events such as strokes, heart attacks or surgery may also cause gout. Gout is strongly associated with obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes. Because of genetic factors, gout tends to run in some families. A variety of treatments can help you manage your gout. Traditionally treatment for acute gout has consisted of colchicine , which can be effective if given early in the attack. Gout often is treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) such as naproxen (e.g., Anaprox, Naprosyn) and indomethacin (e.g., Indocin), usually for 3-7 days.

Occurs more frequently in countries that have a high standard of living. The most common sign of gout is a nighttime attack of swelling, tenderness, redness, and sharp pain in your big toe. There may also be the feeling that the skin around the area is stretching or tearing. There seem to be a number of factors that can cause people to develop gout. Some medications can prevent uric acid from leaving the body. Cyclosporine which is a medication used to suppress the body's immune system and prevent rejection after organ transplant, also increases the risk for developing gout. This can cause a build up of uric acid crystals. The presentation of an article on Herbal Remedies Gout plays an important role in getting the reader interested in reading it. This is the reason for this presentation, which has gotten you interested in reading it!

To prevent future attacks, your doctor can prescribe a medicine to reduce uric acid buildup in your blood. Changing the way you eat can help you conduct your gout. Eat a healthy mix of foods so you get the nutrients you need. Limit foods like meat, fish, and beer. Drink plenty of water and other fluids.Life style changes such as limiting alcohol consumption, and limiting meals with meats and fish rich in purines can also be helpful in controlling gout. Weight loss may be very important this condition. You should also avoid certain animal proteins, such as: seafood; liver; kidney; heart; gizzard; sweetbreads; meat extracts; and gravy. Some of the matter found here that is pertaining to Gout Attack seems to be quite obvious. You may be surprised how come you never knew about it before! :idea:

So much of natural gout treatment requires diet and every gout sufferer has to pay very close attention to what they eat and drink. Imagine how useful a nutrition database on your home computer is; one that you can quickly access, without going to the Internet or 500 page reference books, to look up the nutrients in foods and beverages. And suppose that this comprehensive database is free and easily downloaded? Too good to be true?

Not in this Case

The USDA National Nutrient database for Windows, Standard Reference, Release SR20 is free and it's easily downloaded. It comes courtesy of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and HeatheTech Inc. Aiming high is our motto when writing about any topic. In this way, we tend to add whatever matter there is about Gout, rather than drop any topic.

Earlier articles I have written about the success a South African study of the use of three Zone diet rules had in lowering uric acid and against gout attacks in 13 male gout patients. Essentially, at the practical, do-it-yourself level, the Zone diet involves discovering your ideal amount of carbohydrates, protein and fats, and then implementing these amounts in your diet. How to discover and implement them are in the book "Entering the Zone" (aka the Zone diet) with additional tips and techniques in follow-up book "Mastering the Zone," both written by Barry Sears PhD. So too are many of the necessary values in foods. But the values tables in the books do not cover as many foods and beverages as does this "Titanic of nutrition" database. We are satisfied with this end product on Gout Remedy. It was really worth the hard work and effort in writing so much on Gout Remedy. :idea:

You can even discover how cooking, canning and freezing various foods affects the Vitamin C content of them. (It usually falls). Not only can you look up each food you are interested via the database but you can also at this site look up lists (called reports) sorted from highest to lowest and download those lists to your home or office computer. For some investigations, it's a great time saver. These reports require Adobe Reader. Enhancing your vocabulary is our intention with the writing of this article on Purines Foods. We have used new and interesting words to achieve this. ;)

PH of FOODS NUMBERS

Alkalizing your body (raising its pH levels above pH is an important part of natural gout treatment because the pH theory is that a more alkaline body make uric acid more soluble and better absorbs nutrients in foods. One way to improve your body's pH levels is to ensure adequate levels of potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc. All are important in alkalization but more calcium may be the most since if your body is acidic (low pH levels below pH it may be scavenging calcium from your bones. Why? Blood pH must be at pH The body will ensure that it is, even if it has to loot calcium elsewhere to do it. All these minerals amounts in foods and beverage are shown in the National Nutrient database. We have not included any imaginary or false information on Lower Uric Acid here. Everything here is true and up to the mark!

Vitamin C Has Been Pretty Well Researched as a Natural Gout Remedy

It has been found to lower uric acid levels somewhat. In the last study about it in 2005, with 500 mg of Vitamin C daily. Vitamin C is best taken in foods. Use the National Nutrient database to find the natural Vitamin C content of foods.

You don't wish to download it, the database can also be viewed online HOW EXACTLY CAN A GOUT SUFFERER USE IT? Apart from the obvious benefit of quickly learning the nutrient values of foods to construct a free gout diet. Here are a few ways. Using our imagination has helped us create a wonderful article on Purines. Being imaginative is indeed very important when writing about Purines!

The carbohydrate, protein and fats amount in foods can be easily found in the National Nutrient database. For this diet you also need to distinguish between mono and poly unsaturated fats and saturated fats. The amounts of these in foods are easily discovered in the database Even the beginner will get to learn more about Purine Gout Diet after reading this article. It is written in easy language so that everyone will be able to understand it. :evil:

PURINE TABLES

Over-producers of uric acid (as opposed to under-excretors) may benefit from a low purine gout diet since restricting purines in foods probably means less available to be converted into uric acid.

Purine do indeed have a lot to tell!Dwelving into the interiors of Purine has led us to all this information here on Purine. Purine do indeed have a lot to tell! :oops:

Its Site Says that There are Mac and Handheld Versions Too

So if you use a handheld computer it can be used outside your home. It can be searched online for the vitamin, mineral, water, ash, protein, calorie, carbohydrate, fats, fibre (fiber), sugars, caffeine and others, of foods and beverages.
