Gout Diet : Beneficial Foods
Foods which may be beneficial to people with gout include:
* Dark berries may contain chemicals that lower uric acid and reduce inflammation.
* Tofu which is made from soybeans may be a better choice than meats.
* Certain fatty acids found in certain fish such as salmon, flax or olive oil, or nuts may possess some anti-inflammatory benefits.
Avoiding purine-rich foods is only one aspect of treatment however. It is important to take prescribed medications as directed, maintain a healthy/balanced diet, drink plenty of fluids/water, exercise and maintain a healthy body weight. Diets designed for quick or extreme weight loss will work against you though -- they increase uric acid levels in the blood.
