Gout

Gout is an inflammation of the joints caused by the build-up of excess uric acid in the body.  It is characterized by joint pain, redness, swelling and heat in the affected area.  It often affects the big toe, but it can also occur in the thumb, elbow or knee and can last anywhere from days to weeks.  It happens suddenly and will reoccur as long as the uric acid levels remain high in the body.  Conventional treatment of gout includes medication like Allopurinol or Colchicine to reduce the uric acid levels in the body and anti-inflammatory medications to reduce the pain and swelling.  While these medications are helpful, there can be serious side-effects to their use.+ Read more >

 For many people with gout, treating and preventing flare-ups with natural gout supplements is a preferable choice.  Changes to your diet, both during a gout attack and on a long-term basis, can help prevent gout attacks.  Alcohol, caffeine, refined flour and sugar should be eliminated from your diet to prevent gout attacks.  Avoiding foods which are high in purine content like red meat, sardines, shellfish, herring, sardines, yeast, asparagus and yeast is important.  During an acute attack, lentils, peas, beans, fish, poultry, oatmeal, mushrooms, spinach and cauliflower should also be avoided.  It is also important to drink plenty of water to help flush uric acid from the body.  Nutritional gout supplements that help to remove uric acid from the body include Black Cherry extract, Vitamin B complex, Alfalfa and Quercetin.  Quercetin also works as an anti-inflammatory gout supplement, helping to reduce pain and swelling at the same time as removing uric acid from the body.  Other gout supplements that have anti-inflammatory properties include MSM, Bromelain, and Curcumin.  Glucosamine can be used to help repair cartilage damage in the affected joints.  Essential fatty acid supplements also work to help repair damaged tissue and restore the natural fatty acid balance.  Vitamin E supplements can help to normalize the uric acid levels and also increase circulation.  Body Energy Club’s vitamin store has a wide range of gout supplements at unbeatable online prices.  Using high quality gout supplements as part of an overall health plan can help to treat and prevent gout attacks naturally.Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure that they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
