Maintaining proper uric acid levels is essential to healthy living. Excess uric acid can lead to a variety of health problems, organ damage, and increase the risk of a number of other diseases.1 Uric Acid Control from Life Vitality contains two critical enzymes used by the body in metabolizing uric acid: xanthine oxidase and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS).3,4 These enzymes are obtained from the fruit of the Terminalia bellerica tree, making them a natural solution to controlling uric acid levels.
Uric acid is produced by the body when it breaks down purines. Purines are found in protein containing foods and are normally broken down into uric acid and then excreted by the kidneys. When the body produces an excess amount of uric acid or cannot excrete it properly, the acid builds up in the body and can lead to health problems.
Excess uric acid in the body is called hyperuricemia. The most common health concern hyperuricemia causes is gout which is the build up of uric acid in the joints causing arthritis type pain.6 As uric acid accumulates in the joints it leaves less room for the joints to move as they’re meant to and the acid degrades normal joint fluids and tendons. In the early stages this causes only temporary bursts of pain, but over time will cause permanent damage to mobility of the joints and chronic pain.6
Similarly to how uric acid damages the joints over time, it can damage the organs as it moves around the body. Organ damage normally occurs sooner than permanent joint damage because the uric acid just needs to be circulating to chip away at the body’s organs.2 It is the build up that damages joints, but just the presence of uric acid outside of the digestive track and kidneys can lead to damage.
Hyperuricemia has shown to increase the risk of developing other health concerns as well. The extra uric acid in the body causing damage often leads to metabolic syndrome. Abnormal blood pressure, hyperglycemia, weight gain not caused by diet or lack of exercise, heart disease, renal failure, and type 2 diabetes are the major concerns. Many scientific studies have shown the correlation between hyperuricemia and these other, serious health concerns.5
Similarly, having some conditions make it more likely for the body to develop hyperuricemia. Kidney diseases which decrease the kidneys’ ability to function properly can lead to hyperuricemia, as well as insulin resistance can cause increased renal reabsorption of uric acid and cause renal damage on its own.6
With uric acid able to disrupt so many bodily systems, increase the likelihood of developing serious conditions, and lead to long term internal damage, it is essential for uric acid levels to be kept in balance. Uric Acid Control is formulated with natural, high quality plant ingredients that augment the body’s ability to adequately metabolize uric acid.
