When you have extremely high amounts of uric acid in your blood stream you become more susceptible to the formation of uric acid crystals.
This high level of uric acid is usually caused by purines which are by-products of the breakdown of protein and can be obtained from foods such as shellfish, mushrooms and even wine.
While your body would normally eliminate any excess uric acid, if you suffer from hyperuricemia there is a tendency that any excess uric acid would accumulate in your joints leading to the emergence of gout.
The uric acid crystals tend to be sharp and can cause severe inflammation and pain in your joints.
There are however naturally occurring herbs that can effectively dissolve the uric acid crystals in your joints, let’s take a look at a few of them.
