Hyperuricemia, or high uric acid, can lead to many different health problems, including gouty arthritis, kidney stones, and even cardiovascular disease. High uric acid can occur when the body is producing too much acid or if the kidneys are not processing it correctly. Some natural ways to possibly lower uric acid include apple cider vinegar three times daily, lemon juice in the morning, eating cherries every day for one or two weeks, including eggs in your diet, and increasing your water intake.
- Too much uric acid in your blood can lead to gout, and can either cause or be caused by kidney problems.
- The anthocyanins found in cherries, tart cherry juice and other dark berries may help regulate excess uric acid, and might also reduce inflammation and stiffness.
- By simply drinking enough water — five to eight glasses every day — you may help your body filter and eliminate uric acid.
“This vinegar is a natural detoxifier that can get rid of wastes, including uric acid. ACV has malic acid that can metabolize and flush out uric acid. Adding a teaspoon of ACV to a glass of water and drinking this two to three times daily can restore the balance of alkaline and acid in the body.”
