Why Your Day Needs Lemon Water #9: Fight Gout

February 25, 2015 1 min read

Gout was once known as a "rich man's disease", as only those who consumed an excess of seafood, meat, cheese, and sugary foods contracted it. It's now far more common, which means a lot more people suffer from the excruciating pain of uric acid crystals forming between their joints. Thankfully, lemon water can help to reduce your gout pain and deal with the problem. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="763"] Source: marbella-health.com[/caption] Uric acid is produced when you consume too many purines, which are found in the foods listed above. A diet rich in purines can cause the uric acid to form crystals between the joints, particularly those of the big toes. Lemon water, however, helps to dissolve uric acid, preventing it from forming crystals. It may not help to combat already hardened uric acid crystals, so drinking water might not have any effect if your gout has flared up. But it will help to prevent the crystals from forming in the future, reducing your risk of future gout flare-ups!
