Gout, Inflammation, Your Health and Lemon Juice
Fresh Squeezed Lemon (NOT Lemonade):
Make no mistake, the two of these do not compare, at all. Do not run to the store and grab a bottle of processed, sugar-laden lemonade thinking you can cure your Gout. However, taking a fresh squeezed, preferably organic, lemon and adding it to your daily regimen can certainly aid in reducing the acids in your body. Some have even found the ability to curb the onset of an impending Gout attack with this method.
It is important to note that while this method is recommended, and can certainly help, it will not take the place of what is necessary to truly address your Gout condition. Far too many look for quick fixes and assume they will take care of continued diet and lifestyle abuse. Quick fixes will not resolve this condition long term. Many find these methods to become less and less effective over time, unfortunately.
Fresh squeezed lemon water should remain a part of your Gout free diet, but will not suffice as the only approach. Studies have found fresh lemon juice in water to help reduce serum uric acid. With regard to our program, we've have found it to be extremely effective to consume with our GC® GoutCare and Flamasil® products further enhancing their ability to be absorbed by the body and do their job with the extra support of the acid reducing effects lemon water can provide. The combination can be truly remarkable.

SAT0318 Lemon Juice Reduces Serum Uric Acid Level Via Alkalization of Urine in Gouty and Hyperuremic Patients- A Pilot Study
E.K. Biernatkaluza1,2, N. Schlesinger3
Background Lemon juice stimulates the formation of calcium carbonate released by the pancreas and aids in alkalization of the blood and urine, neutralizing acids such as uric acid.
Objectives To assess wheather drinking freshly squeezed lemon water changes serum uric levels (SUA) and influences urine pH.
Methods In a pilot study, we retrospectively analyzed the medical documentation of 75 individuals presenting to outpatient rheumatological clinic between 1/1/2013 and 30/6/2013. Each patient drank 2 freshly squeezed lemon in 2 liters of water per day. Gouty patients continued their urate lowering drug (ULD) and prophylaxis (colchicine or NSAID) if they have been taking these previously.
Parameters collected at baseline and at 6 weeks included: SUA, serum creatinine, GFR and urine pH.
Results: Seventy five individuals (23F,52M) aged 25-95 years were divided into 3 groups: Group A: gout patients, Group B: individuals with hyperuricemia, Group C: control: patients with RA, AS and PsA. The differences between demographic data of the 3 groups were not significant.
A reduction in SUA was observed in all groups at 6 weeks: Group A 0.4-2.8 (mean 1.6mg/dL); Group B 0.3-2.3 (mean 1.3mg/dL); Group C 0.2-1.8 (mean 1mg/dL).
A decrease in serum creatinine was observed in all groups at 6 weeks: in Group A 0-0.54 (mean 0.04ml/min), in Group B 0.02-0.54 (mean 0.305ml/min), in Group C 0.03-0.44 (mean 0,1ml/min).
At 6 weeks urine pH increased in all groups: in Group A 0.5-2 (mean 1.25 pH unit), in Group B 0.5-2 (mean 1.5 pH unit), in Group C 0-3.5 (mean 1 pH unit).
At baseline the number of pts with GFR <60 ml/min in group A (gout) was 7; improvement at 6 weeks varied from 0- 25 ml/min. In Group B (hyperuricemia) 2 pts had GFR <60 ml/min and at 6 weeks improvement in GFR was 12 and >15 ml/min. In Group C (control) all patients had GFR >60ml/min at baseline and at 6 weeks.
Conclusions To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study in the English literature to evaluate the use of lemon water in gout patients and individuals with hyperuricemia. In this study all individuals given lemon water showed a reduction in SUA, improvement of serum creatinine and GFR as well as urine alkalization after 6 weeks of lemon water.
Lemon water may be a useful adjuvant in the treatment of patients with gout. Large randomized controlled trials are needed to further evaluate the hypourecemic effect of lemons and usefulness of lemons/lemon juice and lemon water as an adjuvant in the treatment of gout.
