Main idea: results of the studies do not clearly define the benefits of a high daily intake of vitamin C in preventing the development and recurrence of gout


Gout, known as “the disease of the kings”, is the most frequent type of arthritis. It results from sustained hyperuricemia that leads to monosodium urate crystal deposition. Studies indicate a correlation between high vitamin C intake and lower serum uric acid levels. In vitro and animal studies seem to be promising and allow an explanation of the physiological relationship between vitamin C and Uric Acid.
