Decrease Your Uric Acid Levels with These Simple Home Remedies

By Sabrina Wilson / August 10, 2015

Hyperuricemia occurs when the uric acid levels in your blood are higher than normal. This can either happen because your kidneys aren’t excreting it properly or because your body is producing it in higher quantities. Renal failure, the formation of kidney stones and gouty arthritis can all be caused by increased levels of uric acid in your blood. Furthermore, high uric acid can lead to cardiovascular disease and hypertension, according to the American Heart Association.

What causes an increase in uric acid levels?

There are a variety of things that can cause the levels of uric acid in your blood to go up, including genetics, obesity, diabetes, alcohol, an under-active thyroid, renal insufficiency, as well as the purines in your regular diet. In addition, diuretics and other such medication, certain chemotherapy components, some types of cancer, but crash diets, fasting and exercise can also increase your levels of uric acid.

Uric Acid natural remedies

How can uric acid levels be controlled or decreased?

You will need to be examined and diagnosed by your local medical professional and follow their recommendations and treatments regarding the issue, but there are also some natural remedies you can employ at home, in an attempt to contribute to the control and decrease of uric acid in your blood and prevent serious disease.

  • Baking Soda – Take a glass of water and put ½ teaspoon of baking soda in it. Drink this solution four times a day, every day, for about two weeks. However, don’t employ this remedy for longer than that and don’t make it a regular treatment. Be careful not to take this if you have high blood pressure.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – In a glass of water, mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. For best results, make sure it is unpasteurized and organic. This remedy should be taken two-three times a day and the dose of apple cider can be increased gradually. The treatment can be taken until you see results.
  • Water – 10 glasses of water per day (the Mayo Clinic actually recommends 2.2 – 3 liters) should be part of your diet. However, in this case, the amount must be adhered to more carefully than ever. Water helps filter and dilute the uric acid in your blood, and encourages the kidneys to excrete the excess.
  • Olive Oil – Switch from the usual vegetable oils to cold-pressed olive oil. When cooked, normal oils will actually strip the vitamin E in your body, which contributes greatly to the proper control of uric acid in your blood. Olive oil, however, is rich in vitamin E and will provide help in decreasing uric acid.
  • Low-Purine Diet – Purines contain nitrogen and they break down, resulting in an increase of uric levels. In order to avoid this, cut down on foods which contain purines, such as animal proteins and others: fish, meat, poultry, asparagus, yeast, beer, legumes, beans, mushrooms should all be cut from your diet or enjoyed very lightly and very rarely.

In conclusion, there are many things you can do, in order to control your uric acid levels and simplify your life as a sufferer of grout or another affliction caused by hyperuricemia.
