Natural Remedy for Gouty Arthritis
Bromelain derived from pineapple, is an effective and suitable alternative to stronger prescription anti-inflammatory agents used in gout treatments. Bromelain can act to reduce inflammation and combat high uric acid levels in the blood. It decreases inflammation which is the main reason for gout pain. The inflammation occurs when uric acid crystallizes in the joints causing irritation and swelling.
Celery is a natural substance which may inhibit xanthine oxidase - thus inhibits the enzyme which is responsible for a major step in converting purines into uric acid in the liver, so less uric acid is produced. Celery can lower uric acid levels by improving its excretion in urine. Furthermore, as a diuretic, it acts to reduce blood pressure which is important for gout sufferers because high blood pressure frequently accompanies gout.
