Uric acid is a chemical created when the body breaks down substances called purines. Purines are normally produced in the body and are also found in some foods and drinks. Due to its antioxidant activity, uric acid was thought to protect neuronal cells, consequently facilitating brain evolution or development and also play a role in maintaining the blood pressure. Most uric acid dissolves in blood and travels to the kidneys. From there, it passes out in urine. If your body produces too much uric acid or does not remove enough of it, in that case you can get sick. A high level of uric acid in the blood is called hyperuricemia. Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include spicy food, consumption of lot of non-vegeterian food, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretic and drinking too much alcohol. High blood uric acid (hyperuricaemia) is the strongest determinant risk factor for gout, an inflammatory arthritis caused by uric acid crystals.
Problems, such as kidney stones, and gout may occur. Symptoms of the high-level of Uric acid are, joint pain or soreness. Swelling in a joint or red, skin around joints, joints that are hot to touch, swelling and pain that affects only one joint in the body.
Patients can never be cured of gout. It is a long-term disease that can be controlled by a combination of medication to control the uric acid level, and anti-inflammation drugs to treat a flare-up. By lowering the uric acid in the blood to a certain level, the chances of getting a gout attack reduce drastically. Moreover, it will be great if we can control in a more natural way.
Phyllanthus niruri has its own potential medicinal benefits. Evidence has been found to inhibit kidney stone formation, also helps to reduce the size of the stone that form in the urinary tract. It is well known for its benefiting diuretics. It increases urinary excretion of magnesium and potassium caused a significant decrease in urinary oxalate and uric acid in patients with hyperoxaluria and hyperuricosuria.
Quercetin Anhydrate (Quercetin) is a flavonoid that reduces high uric acid levels that causes the inflammation and pain during a gout attack. Quercetin is a plant pigment (flavonoid), which is a polyphenolic compounds that exert anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects along with anti-allergic action. Elevated plasma uric acid concentration is a risk factor for gout, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
Piper nigrum (Black pepper extract) has the active compound Piperine, which is helpful to relieve digestion problem, nausea, headache and has anti-inflammatory properties. Black pepper extract also enhances the absorption of the active ingredients.
