How to make an infusion for uric acid
When we perform a routine blood test as a way to discover our state of health and know if we may or may not suffer from any disease or pathology, there are certain parameters that are precisely studied regularly and / or basic. This is what happens, for example, with parameters as common as is the case of creatinine, glucose, transaminases, cholesterol, triglycerides or uric acid.
Basically we could define uric acid as a chemical compound formed by our own organism during the process of decomposition of the purines. The purines, as you surely know, consist of substances that we find in certain foods that in turn are absorbed by our body, leaving as a final result the uric acid.
We find purines especially in foods of animal origin, highlighting especially the viscera, some blue fish, seafood and finally meats and white fish.
Did you know that in a single day our body can produce around 500 mg. of uric acid? Luckily, if we have good health and our body functions normally, around 80% of that uric acid is finally eliminated through urine. But at times there may be elevated blood levels of uric acid. It is what is commonly known as high uric acid, and can give rise to the precipitation of this chemical compound in the joints and in turn produce its inflammation, appearing gout attacks or of arthritis.
In addition to eliminate uric acid crystals Following a healthy lifestyle, opting for a diet low in purines and also for certain natural tips that are very useful, we can also easily develop at home a medicinal infusion with useful plants for the reduction of this compound in the blood. We explain what is the best infusion in this sense, what ingredients you need and the steps to follow.
Ideal infusion to lower uric acid
Ingredients you need:
