Foods that reduce uric acid levels in the body are all fruits and vegetables, but bromelain and papain are enzymes found specifically in pineapple and papaya that greatly help to reduce uric acids. Keep uric acid levels under control to prevent future acidity problems with health information from a registered dietitian and licensed nutritionist in this free video on healthy eating.
Hi. I'm Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip, we're talking about foods that help reduce your uric acid levels. And uric acid comes from foods that are very high in acid. So basically your meat, your dairy, alcohol, consuming alcohol, all these things end up producing more uric acid in your body. And some people if they're not clearing it effectively can develop acidity conditions such as gout. So if that applies to you or if you have a family history, you're going to want to cut back on some of those foods, modestly at least and include more foods that reduce your uric acid levels. So just to be very, very general about that, basically all of your fruits and vegetables are going to be your best bet, as well as some of your nuts and your seeds. One specific food or two rather, that help to reduce uric acid levels are bromelain and papain which are enzymes found in pineapple and papaya. And one other food that helps reduce uric acid is bitter cherries. This has been Rachael with Nutrolution, Miami Beach, Florida.
