Very recently I heard the term Purine Foods
the first time in my life!
This came to my attention when we
in my house
thought that my husband had a gout situation
on with one of his big toes!
It wasn't gout at all, and
to be honest with you, I don't recall actually what
was wrong with it however, it brought the term
in to my world. So ...
just what is a purine food,
and what do they do?
I'll put a video below
for you on this topic and an article for you to look at!
See a list of foods to avoid below!
"Purines are substances in animal and plant foods that the body converts to uric acid.
When excess uric acid in the bloodstream builds too quickly or can't
be eliminated fast
enough, it is deposited as needle-shaped crystals in the tissues of the body, including joints,
causing intense pain."
Oh okay! That makes sense!
That info came from Arthritis dot org
Here's something else: "Purines are chemicals found naturally in some foods. When you digest
purines, your body produces a
waste product called uric acid. Some people experience a build-up
of uric acid that causes their joints to swell ...'
What Not to Eat When You Have Gout

Some supplements I have found to help this situation are
Tart Cherry Supplements; and Celery Seed Extract!
See a related article below as well as some products!
I have made a point of taking some of these as a preventive
measure! It wouldn't seem to me to be a bad thing!
Here's an article that speaks to Tart Cherry as an
effective gout treatment! - Dr David Williams
Here's another: Gout and Celery Seeds! From: Gout And You!
Here's the video! See it below or on YouTube!

"...don't give much thought to our arteries.
That's especially true when we are young and think we can eat anything
we want. But here's a news flash: plaque begins to build in your blood
vessels during your teenage years..."
