By:Meenakshi Chaudhary, Onlymyhealth Editorial Team,Date:Feb 13, 2017
High levels of uric acid in blood, also known as hyperuricemia, occur due to increased production of uric acid in the body or decreased excretion of it through the kidneys. Although it isn’t often considered as a fatal condition except when it leads to kidney failure, it usually results in kidney stones and gout. Here are some natural remedies that can help you reduce and control uric acid levels.

    Another remedy that is highly beneficial in reducing uric acid levels, is baking soda. It can help you maintain the natural alkaline balance in the body, making the uric acid more soluble and easier to flush out of the kidneys. Take ½ half teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and drink up to 4 glasses of this solution for 2 weeks. This remedy should not be taken on a regular basis. Also, if you have high blood pressure, don’t try this remedy. Image Source : Shutterstock

    Olive oil to control high levels of uric acid

    When you heat vegetable oils, they turn into rancid fats. Now these rancid fats are known to destroy the vital vitamin E in the body, which is essential for reducing and controlling uric acid levels. So, instead of opting for your regular vegetable oil, go for olive oil as it contains monounsaturated fats that remain stable when heated. In addition, it is high in vitamin E and antioxidants, and has anti-inflammatory benefits.Image Source : Shutterstock
