Protein-rich foods: Beware of Uric Acid!
Protein and Uric Acid: Keys to Balancing a Healthy Diet and Preventing Gout Attack
If your diet is rich in protein from meat, poultry, fish, and even algae such as spirulina, it's crucial to understand the implications of this habit.
Excessive consumption of protein from these foods can lead to increased uric acid levels in the body.
In this article, we'll explore in detail what uric acid is, where it comes from, and the health consequences of high levels.
Understanding uric acid
Uric acid is a molecule resulting from the breakdown of cells during cell renewal. This natural process leads to the creation and destruction of cells in our body. In addition, the consumption of animal-based foods, such as meat, poultry and fish, and algae such as spirulina, also contributes to the intake of uric acid in the body.
Complications of increased uric acid levels:
A significant increase in uric acid levels can lead to a number of complications. Uric acid crystals tend to deposit in the joints, triggering an inflammatory response.
This reaction can cause intense pain, redness and inflammation, characterizing the phenomenon as a gout attack. Understanding these complications is essential to preventing and effectively managing uric acid-related problems.
