Uric acid crystallization can cause joint pains, gout, arthritis and even kidney failure. It has the ability to trigger joint pains and make them so severe if not handled by a qualified doctor. The pain can become chronic once it is not treated right and that gout is already in your system. Gout will then lead to joint inflammation and then, acute arthritis.
How to reduce uric acid
It’s important that you keep a healthy diet, adding plenty of water-rich foods and those that have a low purines content, such as cucumber. This vegetable packs a mere 7.3 milligrams of purines per 100-gram serving, making it ideal for reducing uric acid levels and preventing gout.
Water also helps eliminate the uric acid crystals that accumulate in the joints, causing a lot of pain. Drink plenty of water per day (more than two liters, even), and up your intake of water-rich foods. In addition to cucumber, zucchini, squash, and fruits are excellent choices.
There are several natural ways of removing the uric crystallization as well as some artificial methods. The following are ways to remove uric acid crystallization from joints:
