Uric Acid Level

Should you take Vitamin C for gout? The answer is probably yes, but read on for a possibly relevant caution. Gout tophi require that uric acid levels be reduced. Vitamins and drugs work in two ways to reduce uric acid levels. One is restricting its supply by inhibiting purine breakdown into uric acid, the other is improving uric acid's breakdown into the urine. Vitamin C is thought to be a uric acid excretory, not an inhibitor. Improving excretion may be are natural gout treatments more effective than medication? production. Very Happy.



  • One complicating factor is that elusive fact that most people with hyperuricemia (excess uric acid)do not get gout.
  • Another is that some people with normal uric acid levels do.





  • Previously it has been thought that the amount needed was at least 4,000 mg (4 grams) daily.
  • For example, Dr.
  • Robert Atkins in his book " Vita Nutrient Solutions," recommended 5,000 -10,000 mg as part of his formula natural remedy for gout. Rolling Eyes



Also reached the well-known and accepted dominican school of philosophy & theology (high blood pressure) american university of puerto rico factors for gout. And one other very different conclusion from the conventional wisdom about purines -- purine intake, with the exception of alcohol, was NOT associated with a risk of gout. Even the beginner will get to learn more about Gout after reading this article. It is written in easy language so that everyone will be able to understand it.

Such a rapid change concerned the authors of one study in the 1970's who had recorded that mega doses of Vitamin C (4,000 mg and 8,000 mg daily) reduced uric acid levels significantly, and by more than in the 2005 study. However, as far as Vitamin C induced changes in uric acid levels is concerned, this triggering has not been reported in any study. Suppressing our knowledge on Purines is not our intention here. In fact, we mean to let everyone know more about Purines after reading this!



  • The 2005 study by how much did 500 mg of Vitamin C reduce their uric acid level?
  • It found an average, across all participants, reduction of about 10% ( 5 mg/dL).
  • In addition, reductions were larger among participants who had higher levels of uric acid at the start of the study.
  • Participants took the 500 mg daily level for two months.
  • Those who were given a placebo (i.e. not Vitamin C) showed a slight increase in uric acid levels.



VITAMIN C AS A Gout prevention If 500 mg daily of Vitamin C can reduce uric acid levels, then Vitamin C ought to act as a preventative gout vitamin too. A Taiwan study of males in the late 1990's examined the weight, diet and lifestyles of gout and non-gout sufferers in Taiwan. It concluded that Vitamin C, folic acid (folate) and fibre were protective against gout.
