Apple Juice and Gout

Apple Juice and GoutHave you suddenly experienced excruciating pain on your big toe? Have you noticed that your joints have been painful for quite sometime? If after a medical check-up you are diagnosed with gout, then drinking apple juice can be a remedy to help you manage the pain.

Apple Juice comes highly recommended to manage excess uric acid found in your body. It is is high in nutrients like vitamin B and C, phosphorus, iron and potassium. It also packs a great deal of calcium, malic acid and pectin which can help with the uric acid level in your body as well as digestion.

Drinking apple juice after every meal is suggested to keep you on track on the road to recovery with the swelling and pain that comes with gout. Avoid foods that produce purines which can make your gout worse. Go for substitutes like non-fermented milk products like whey protein, mozzarella cheese and cottage cheese. Eat egg whites instead of egg yolks and drink milk and pulp-free fruit juices.

When you have gout, alcoholic drinks are prohibited since they contribute to the uric acid build-up in your body. Apple juice is the best alternative. Let us know what you think about this or join us on Facebook for a discussion.
