It is commonly known that hyperuricemia (high uric acid) is the root of gout attack. Doctors always advice all gout patients to control their diet and if possible, abstain from all high protein or high purine content foods. It is easy to say than done. It takes very strong emotional strength to say "NO!" to the favorite foods you have been living with for years.

The most ironic and disappointing part is that even if you managed to cut down the consumption of all those so-called ‘high risk' foods, your uric acid level is still beyond the healthy range and Gout STILL attacks from time to time and those gout drugs are becoming less and less effective.

This is because most of the gout patients (including the doctors) do NOT know that there are actually a source of purine hidden inside the body. And the most shocking truth is…

The purine that enters through your mouth (foods) only contribute to 10% ~ 15% of uric acid production in your body. That is why no matter how hard you try to stop yourself from eating those high purine foods, you can only reduce not more than 15% of the purine or uric acid content in your body.

Eventhough you have become a complete vegan, your body will still produce Billions units of purine everyday. These purines will turn into hugh amount of uric acid that floats around your body. And then some of the uric acid will crystallize and form urate cyrstals that triggers the gout attack.

Out of the 4 bases: adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G) and thymine (T) found in DNA, 2 of them (Adenine & Guanine) contain purine. In average human adult, there are between 50 and 70 Billion cells die Each Day due to the Apoptosis or Programmed Cell Death. These death cells release trillions of purine molecules into the bloodstream. Some will be re-used in the formation of new cells, while most of the DNA-produced purines are sent to the liver to be broken down into uric acid for disposal through the kidneys. This also explains why liver meat is on top the list of high purine content food.

Now you should understand why even though you have completely cut off from consuming any high purine foods or to the extent of fasting, your body will still produce trillions units of purine everyday. As long as you are still alive, there will be billions of body cells die off everyday and release the degraded DNA purine bases into the blood stream.

Naturally, we are born with the ability to break down those excessive purine to uric acid for disposal, and that important role is done by the very important vital organ in your body… The Liver.

Liver is a vital organ in human body, it carries out wide range of functions such as protein synthesis, decomposition of red blood cells, glycogen storage, amino acid deamination, hormone production and the most important job is… Detoxification…
