Cherry and Olive Oil Control the Uric Acid

Due to the disintegration of purine in metabolism, the uric acid is formed in the body which flows into the kidneys and is excreted in urine.

But sometimes the uric acid remains trapped in the body and its amount increases beyond the permissible limits.

This situation is dangerous for the body. The imbalance of uric acid causes rheumatic arthritis like problems.

So it is necessary to control the higher levels of uric acid in the body.

To control the uric acid it is necessary to understand the causes responsible for its raised levels.

If the problem is hereditary, then it is necessary to control and monitor the raised levels of uric acid. But it is better to consult the physician, if there are related problems like improper functioning of the kidneys etc.

The higher levels of uric acid in the body mean that the food you eat is deficient in purine. This particular chemical compound is found in all foods and all the cells of the body. It is the building block of RNA and DNA. The decrease in purine intake leads to the breaking of the purine bonding in the body and the level of uric acid increases.

The higher concentration purine is found in all types of meat especially the organ meat of liver and kidney. 

The lesser amount of purine is present in beer, beef, poultry, seafood, fish, wheat etc. The vegetables and tomatoes have lesser amount of purine except spinach, cauliflower, peas, mushroom etc.

Excess intake of purine causes gout while the dairy products decrease the risk. Take fruits and fruit juices, chocolate, coffee, tea, nuts and peanuts, cocoa, eggs, soda water etc.

Take sufficient amount of fiber rich diet to decrease the levels of uric acid in body.

It is surprising but true that the food cooked in olive oil is god for the overall health of the body as it contains vitamin A. The food cooked in olive oil gets enriched with vitamin A and other nutrients. Olive oil reduces the levels of uric acid in the body.

Drink enough water as the intake of sufficient water removes several maladies and toxins from the body. It helps to remove the uric acid from the body. Drink at least 3 liter of water daily.

Cherry being an anti-inflammatory helps the body to control the uric acid.
