Gout is a disease of the joints and it can be a very serious disease as it is one of the most painful forms of arthritis. It is a crippling disease and negatively affects your quality of life.
To understand gout, you need to know what causes it. Gout is caused by the build-up of uric acid beyond the body’s capacity to excrete or metabolize it. Uric acid results from the breakdown of molecules called purines which are present in all your body tissues. They are also found in many foods, such as liver, dried beans, peas, and anchovies.
Normally, uric acid dissolves in the blood and passes through the kidneys and out of the body. But in gout, there is accumulation of excess uric acid which further leads to:
- The deposition of sharp uric acid crystals in joints, most commonly, the big toe joint.
- Tophi, which are deposits of uric acid and appear as lumps under the skin.
- Uric acid stones in the kidneys and urinary tract.
Gout most commonly affects joints of the toes, feet, ankles, knees, hands and elbows. If left untreated, gout can lead to joint and kidney damage as well as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and kidney failure. Gout may be caused by obesity, high alcohol intake, genetic predisposition, high intake of foods rich in purines, certain medicines and injury to a joint.
Gout is treated using colchicine and anti-inflammatory drugs, but it can be effectively supplemented by using MIP Colostrum, a natural anti-inflammatory substance.
Colostrum is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that can assist in the management of gout. MIP Colostrum helps prevent inflammation and swelling in the affected region. The acute inflammatory state during a gout attack is caused by an army of white blood cells which cause swelling and intense pain. LMW peptides are certain amino acids present in MIP Colostrum which prevent the white blood cells from assembling at the affected joint, thus preventing acute gout from happening. Colostrum also contains numerous pain-controlling proteins which provide relief to the gout patient.
MIP colostrum also prevents NSAID-induced (pain killer induced) gut damage which is an added bonus for a patient troubled by gout.
MIP Colostrum is a very powerful natural supplement that provides vital nutrients which act to prevent pain, inflammation and swelling while promoting early recovery of the affected joint. Try NutriNZ's MIP Colostrum over a period of at least 6 weeks, doubling the recommended dosage for that time for best results.
