If you seek a natural cure for gout, there are a number of gout products on the market. We’re focusing here on those which contain a significant number of the vitanutrients, and a spice, which we discuss elsewhere on this website.
They all assist a natural cure for gout but they have different formulas. If or when you understand the action of these substances, you’ll understand how they work.
These products offer a money back guarantee (warranty), which is another reason why we have selected them for this section.
This is a dual function gout supplement which has been produced after natural remedy research and laboratory tests. It has a spray which sends natural anti inflammatories to the attack site for pain relief without using drugs such as NSAIDs, colchicine or corticosteroids. And it has a second formula, taken orally, which deals with uric acid levels and the MSU gout crystals.
The vitamins and minerals (including potassium citrate) work to raise body pH (i.e. lower acidity), the same task that bicarbonate of soda (baking soda), alkaline water and other alkalizing agents often accomplish. The alkalizing minerals in Goutcleanse help to dissolve the MSU gout crystals. This creates the right conditions for expelling uric acid as you’ll know if you’ve read the pH, and what to drink? pages carefully.
Celery seed extract helps to expel uric acid through its natural diuretic function.
Reducing uric acid production is tackled by inhibiting xanthine oxidase (XO) naturally. Inhibiting xanthine oxidase is the method drugs such as allopurinol and febuxostat use. (Although febuxostat does it differently to allopurinol). In this gout supplement there is a substance called Valoneic Acid Dilactone (VAD). It is extracted from the leaves of the Lagerstroemia flower. Research has found that is has a stronger effect on xanthine oxidase than allopurinol, and without allopurinol’s side effects. There’s more about VAD on the herbal remedies page.
In addition it contains celery seed extract (3nB) and cherry extract to assist this process through their possible effects on xanthine oxidase, and thus lowering uric acid.
Curcumin from turmeric is included to help the anti inflammatory spray work better at reducing pain and inflammation.
We think Goutcleanse is a good product which might help, because the controlling gout ingredients in it are made from many of the substances we describe as being gout positive on this website. And Goutcleanse is produced in a factory that adheres to US government Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards.
