Gout Purine Chart




  • Only 30% of uric acid production stems from the foods we eat


  • A whopping 70% comes from our own body cells


    The health of your cells is affected by many things such as stress, sickness, body weight, medication use, lifestyle choices, and poor eating habits. These factors can alter your body's ability to properly dispose of the accumulating excess uric acid. While purines may be one piece of this puzzle, it remains a rather small piece in the grand scheme of gout control.

    Solely following a purine chart can allow someone to indulge in sugar and alcohol, yet avoid spinach....? We must be careful and understand all components involved this painful condition.
