Gout is a painful disease that causes inflammation of the joints that can lead to acute arthritis. This disease is caused because of a high level of uric acid in the body, which is a waste product of the body’s metabolism. Uric acid accumulates in the body in the form of crystals, and hangs in the joints, causing this intense pain.
In order to reduce uric acid in the body and prevent gout, it is possible to promote the consumption of certain foods, such as cucumber, that help to remove toxins from the body. Rich in antioxidants and alkalizing, cucumber is effective at preventing the crystallization of uric acid in the joints, reducing inflammation and eliminating accumulated toxins from the body.
Here is a natural remedy to prevent gout:
- 1 cucumber
- 2 celery stalks
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1 slice (1cm) fresh ginger
- 2 glasses of water
Clean all ingredients thoroughly and cut cucumber and celery into small pieces. In a blender, put the cucumber and celery pieces, ginger, lemon juice and water, then mix.
Have a drink of this drink after each lunch. The ingredients of this remedy promote digestion, and celery and ginger reduce inflammation. Consumed regularly, this remedy helps prevent gout effectively.
