Purines - Vitamin C for Gout? It is a Good Idea, but There's a Caution If You Use It as a Gout Treatment

Should you take Vitamin C for gout? The answer is probably yes, but read on for a possibly relevant caution. Gout diet require that uric acid levels be reduced. Vitamins and drugs work in two ways to reduce uric acid levels. One is restricting its supply by inhibiting purine breakdown into uric acid, the other is improving uric acid's breakdown into the urine. Vitamin C is thought to be a uric acid excretory, not an inhibitor. Improving excretion may be more important than reducing production. :lol:

VITAMIN C as a GOUT PREVENTOR

If 500 mg daily of Vitamin C can reduce uric acid levels, then Vitamin C ought to act as a preventative gout vitamin too. A Taiwan study of males in the late 1990's examined the weight, diet and lifestyles of gout and non-gout sufferers in Taiwan. It concluded that Vitamin C, folic acid (folate) and fibre were protective against gout. An idle brain, is a devil's workshop they say. Using this ideology in mind, we ventured to write on Gout Sufferers, so that something productive would be achieved of our minds.

The 2005 study by how much did 500 mg of Vitamin C reduce their uric acid level? It found an average, across all participants, reduction of about 10% ( 5 mg/dL). In addition, reductions were larger among participants who had higher levels of uric acid at the start of the study. Participants took the 500 mg daily level for two months. Those who were given a placebo (i.e. not Vitamin C) showed a slight increase in uric acid levels. Writing something about Gout remedy be something illogical in the beginning. However, with the progress of matter, it seemed logical. Matter just started pouring in, to give you this finished product.

Such a rapid change concerned the authors of one study in the 1970's who had recorded that mega doses of Vitamin C (4,000 mg and 8,000 mg daily) reduced uric acid levels significantly, and by more than in the 2005 study. However, as far as Vitamin C induced changes in uric acid levels is concerned, this triggering has not been reported in any study.

However, Restricting Purines in Your Diet is Not Difficult, So It is Still Worth Doing

The conventional wisdom may be correct. Uric acid level tests should tell if a low purine diet works for you. We had at first written a rough assignment on Normal Uric Acid Levels. Then after a few improvisions and enhancements here and there, we have ended up with this end product.
