What To Eat For Gout
After being trained and certified as a nutritionist, my understanding of food and how our bodies utilize it, completely transformed. The easy way to describe what nutrition is, is how well your guts wring all the good stuff out of what you eat, and how well it gets rid of what's left.
That brings a whole new meaning to "don't eat crap" doesn't it?
One of the big reasons (IMO) that those of us that catch the gout, is that after a while - like a couple decades - the way our intestinal tract deals with protein is compromised. Proteins are where the purines are, and if you aren't dealing with the proteins well, the purine load goes up, and so does the uric acid.
That's just one part of the whole puzzle though. Our ability to deal with fats and produce good bile and hormones is a rabbit hole for another day.
Then of course how best we are utilizing the right minerals (which have everything to do do with acid/alkaline balance) and how they interact with different enzymes and cofactors, plays a big part in how well we manage gout.
