- Purines & Uric acid
A systematic review of human studies on the effect of vitamin C supplement intake on serum uric acid level, which increases risk of gout, found that vitamin C supplementation was associated with serum uric acid level reduction in 8 out of 13 studies.
The gout cookbooks contain about 100 recipes (breakfast, appetizers, beverages, main dishes, sides, sauces, desserts) and lists of foods allowed and not allowed for people with gout.
Canadian researchers report that drinking 4 to 6 cups of coffee daily, compared with no coffee, was associated with reduced serum uric acid levels and incidence of hyperuricemia.
The topical role of uric acid and its relation to cardiovascular disease, renal disease, and hypertension is rapidly evolving. Its important role both historically and currently in the clinical clustering phenomenon of the metabolic syndrome (MS), type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), atheroscleropathy, and non-diabetic atherosclerosis is of great importance.
