How to Lower Uric Acid Naturally 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. It can further lead to problems like gouty
arthritis, kidney stones and renal failure. Factors that can contribute to a high uric
acid level include a diet high in purines (purines are broken down into uric acid),
excess alcohol consumption, renal insufficiency, obesity, underactive thyroid, genetics, diabetes,
acidosis, and certain other diseases. There are some tips and natural remedies that
can help reduce and control uric acid levels. 1. Apple Cider Vinegar Being a natural cleanser and detoxifier, apple
cider vinegar can help remove wastes like uric acid from the body. It contains malic
acid that helps break down and eliminate uric acid. Add one teaspoon of raw, organic, unpasteurized
apple cider vinegar to a glass of water. Drink this solution two or three times a day. You can gradually increase the amount of apple
cider vinegar up to two tablespoons per glass of water and continue this remedy until your
uric acid levels come down. 2. Lemon Juice Though it may seem that lemon juice will make
the body more acidic, in actuality, it produces an alkaline effect and helps neutralize uric
acid. Plus, its vitamin C content also helps lower uric acid levels. Squeeze the juice of one lemon into a glass
of warm water. Drink it in the morning on an empty stomach. Continue for at least a
few weeks. 3. Cherries Cherries and dark berries contain chemicals
that help reduce uric acid levels. Eat one-half cup of cherries daily for a few
weeks. You can also drink one or two cups of tart cherry juice for about four weeks. For even better results, add blueberries,
strawberries, tomatoes and bell peppers to your diet. 4. Baking Soda Baking soda, is highly beneficial for lowering
uric acid levels and reducing gout pain. It helps maintain the natural alkaline balance
in the body and makes the uric acid more soluble and easier to flush out of the kidneys. Mix one-half teaspoon of baking soda in a
glass of water. Drink up to four glasses of this daily for
two weeks. You can drink it every two to four hours. Do not take this remedy on a regular basis.
Also, do not take this remedy if you suffer from high blood pressure. People age 60 or
older should not drink more than 3 glasses per day. 5. Olive Oil Most vegetable oils turn into rancid fats
when heated or processed. The rancid fats destroy the vital vitamin E in the body, which
is essential for controlling uric acid levels. Opt for cold-pressed olive oil rather than
using vegetable oil or butter. Olive oil contains monounsaturated fats, vitamin E and antioxidants
and has anti-inflammatory benefits. 6. 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. Drinking adequate water regularly can reduce
the risk of recurrent gout attacks. Drink at least eight to 10 glasses of water
throughout the day. Also, include more fluids and fresh, water-rich
fruits like watermelons, strawberries and tomatoes, and vegetables like cucumber, lettuce
and celery in your diet. If you like the video, give it a thumbs†up
