The gout is a kind of arthritis that is characterized by severe and sudden attacks of joint pain, including swelling, redness, and warmth in the affected area. Generally, it attacks just one joint and it usually attacks the joint of your big toe.
The pain and swelling of gout attacks are generally caused by the uric acid crystals build-up in your joint, and this situation leads to inflammation.
But luckily there are amazing ingredients that can help you to remove the gout. Today we will present you one natural drink with turmeric that will help you to treat the gout.
Pineapple + Turmeric Drink
- 1 cup Tart cherry juice
- 1 inch ginger root
- 1 medium pineapple
- 2 tsp turmeric powder
Take the pineapple and remove the stem and the skin. Then, chop the pineapple into small pieces. Place the ingredients in your blender and blend it until you get a homogeneous texture. Put your drink in a glass jar and keep it in the fridge.
Note: this drink can last for about a month in your fridge, so use it like a remedy to get rid of the pain cause by the gout.
The gingerols are the active ingredients of the ginger root, and they are in close relation with the capsaicin. The gingerols and capsaicin are very similar on a molecular level, and this means that the enzymes responsible for the inflammation are reduced.
The pineapple contains bromelain, and the bromelain is anti-inflammatory and natural enzyme. It is able to intrude the hormones which are responsible for the swelling, and in this way it reduces the process.
The enzyme is also amazing for the diets rich in meat and protein because it aids the digestion. Those diets that cause the uric acid levels to be high are connected to gout.
The turmeric contains curcumin, which contains anti-inflammatory properties, so it is able to remove the pain. The curcumin can block the vessels of your red blood cells from enlarging, and also it can block the additional protein production.
Tart Cherry Root
According to some researchers, the cherries are able to lower the uric acid levels in your blood. So, because of this they can reduce the chances of gout attack.
