Tackle Uric Acid Crystallization With One Simple Vegetable (For Gout Sufferers)
Cucumber juice helps bring down body temperature, is highly alkalizing and effective for removing uric acid crystalization in joints, like in the case of GOUT. There may be a slight pain when drinking this juice – it is the stirring of the old toxins to be eliminated. (1)
So let's get into the claims that the author of this recipe made about this concoction.
The ingredient that may help gout sufferers is the cucumber, but for them to say it will fix your bodies uric acid problems is far fetched. While this is a great general tonic (I juice cucumbers 3 or 4 times a week) it's not going to fix your gout no matter how many days in a row you drink it.
The truth is that cucumbers are made up of mostly water and that they are low in purines. A diet high in purines increases uric acid in your blood stream, and drinking lots of water helps to flush those out. So the original author made the leap that juicing cucumbers will help because they have a very high water content and are low in purines.
Does anyone else see a problem with that sort of science?
