Effective home remedies to lower uric acid levels

Pavan Naidu

Uric acid is a natural waste product formed when the body breaks down purines, found in certain foods and drinks. 

High levels of uric acid can lead to conditions like gout and kidney stones. There are several home remedies that can help reduce uric acid levels naturally.

Avoid Sugary foods: Sugary foods, beverages, can exacerbate uric acid levels. Limiting or avoiding sugary drinks can aid in lowering uric acid levels.

Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water helps dilute the uric acid in the blood and promotes its excretion through urine. 

Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is believed to help alkalize the body and reduce uric acid levels. Mix one tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it daily to see experience potential benefits.

Vitamin C-Rich Foods: Vitamin C helps lower uric acid levels by increasing its excretion through urine. Include foods like citrus fruits, oranges, and strawberries in your diet to boost your vitamin C intake.

Low-Purine Diet: Foods high in purines, such as red meat, organ meats, can increase uric acid levels. Opt for a low-purine diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to help lower uric acid.
