Are there any nutritional supplements that help gout?

I have advanced chronic gout. Are there any nutritional supplements that would help with the elimination of uric acid?

The gout pain is not in the usual places like the big toe and ankle. I experience the pain around the joints an in the muscles of my upper arms and lower legs.

    Gout is a condition where uric acid crystals build up in the body.

    This can happen in the area of the big toe and cause a lot of pain.

    Our foods contain purines; some foods are higher in this than others.

    The doctor may place you on a lower purine diet (of which they will usually provide you a list of foods to avoid. There is also medications that can lower the uric acid in the blood

    Here an alternative way to cure gout?
