Just the word is enough to make you cringe if you have it or have had it.  It can strike anywhere from your knees to elbows, ankles or fingers – but the most common place is the big toe or ankles.  It’s excruciating, so I’m told.  But there is hope!  There are things you can do.

MaxiMSM alleviates the pain and inflammation of the joints associated with gout (but may require several weeks of daily supplementation before its beneficial effects become apparent and keep it away).  Around a teaspoon or two a day in water of the MaxiMSM powder is recommended, or 6-10 of the MaxiMSM tablets in divided doses. But do keep it up.

Vitamin C alleviates gout (by facilitating the excretion of excessive uric acid).  Take Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C, Ester C, Super Cee or Scorbi-Cee – they are all excellent. It’s handy to mix the MaxiMSM powder with Super Cee and sip this through out the day.

Quercetin with Vitamin C (450-750 mg per day) alleviates gout (by inhibiting the xanthine oxidase enzyme which subsequently causes a reduction in uric acid production).

These are all available from my online store at https://sallyanncreed.co.za/shop/ 

Foods you can try:

  • Raw potato juice (I know it sounds crazy – it works)
  • Beetroot and beet juice from RediBeets Powder (much easier to take than using raw beets)
  • Cherries – fresh red ones – a big cup a day – excellent
