Many people know the term “arthritis”, which is generally known as the swelling of joints, which causes joint pain and stiffness. There are many types of arthritis like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout and so on. Gout will be the main focus of the article and to start off, what exactly is gout? Gout is a common type of arthritis that causes intense pain,swelling and stiffness in a joint, which usually affects the big toe. Gout is more likely to affect men and also women who have reached their menopause. Gout is caused by excess uric acid that is in the blood, which is also known as hyperuricemia. Uric acid is produced when the body breaks down purines, which are chemical compounds that are found in meat, seafood and poultry. Under normal conditions, uric acid will be dissolved in the blood and is excreted from the body in urine via the kidneys. However, when too much uric acid is produced, it can build up and form needle-like crystals that will trigger inflammation and pain in the joints. One of the ingredients that can aid in gout is vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that helps with the body defence. Vitamin C has also shown to be useful in the prevention of gout. Another ingredient that has proved to be useful are cherries. They help in lowering uric acid levels, which are the cause of gout and reduce the chances of a gout attack.
