Gout Diet and Protein Myths
Would you believe us if we told you we have thousands of vegetarian and vegan clients suffering with Gout and Arthritis? The protein myth may just be one of the most misunderstood pieces of this Gout puzzle.
Many are unaware that protein can actually REDUCE uric acid by increasing excretion. The problem lies in the fact that flesh-based protein can also increase uric acid due to the purine levels. However, if you've gone through the information on our site you'll find that purines in food only account for 30% of the uric acid formation in your body. So what to do? DO NOT STOP EATING PROTEIN -- INCLUDING MEAT!
Our bodies are machines -- machines that require a certain balance of resources and nutrients to function properly. Protein and some acidic balances are essential to this process. As with anything else, the sources of your food, the amount you consume, and the foods you eat together can send your body's health in one direction or the other.
Take a look at some of our page links below for more in depth information about the importance of food balance to control Gout, Arthritis, and general Inflammation.
