Gout Relief (13 products)

 

Gout is a condition that affects the joints of the body. The big toe is the joint most commonly affected, although the hands, wrists, knees, ankles, elbows or any other joint can be affected.

 

Small crystals made up of uric acid, form in and around the joints, and they can cause pain and inflammation. Uric acid comes from the breakdown of cells, DNA and from the food and drinks we consume each day. Extra uric acid normally gets processed in the kidneys and leaves the body via urine. In people with gout, this doesn’t happen quickly enough, and the uric acid builds up.

 

The pain and symptoms of gout tend to come on quickly, and when this happens, it is often referred to as an “attack” of gout. Symptoms you may notice during an attack include pain, redness, swelling and extreme soreness when touching the joint.

 

Attacks can last for a week at a time. If gout is not managed well, attacks can become frequent and severe, and you may experience constant pain and permanent joint damage.

It is important to seek medical advice if you think you may be suffering from gout.

 

Gout treatment includes dietary and lifestyle modification, specific medication and natural remedies for gout. Nutritional and herbal supplementation can be effective in gout prevention and gout pain relief.

 

Supplements for gout relief include sour cherry, celery seed, natural anti-inflammatories such as omega 3 and curcumin.

 

Natural solutions for gout relief include reducing alcohol, sugar, purine rich foods and incorporating alkalising foods and drinks such as apple cider vinegar, green vegetables and cherry and celery juice.
