So a more effective strategy when it comes to achieving this is through the water that we obtain from cooking the artichokes. The ideal would be to drink a liter a day, mixed with the juice of half a lemon. But why is this vegetable so beneficial for uric acid ?:

  • Artichokes have caffeic, linoleic and oleic acids. This means that they help us metabolize fats in the body, as well as the purines that cause high uric acid. Thus, they exert a cleansing action, which is also very beneficial for reducing the level of cholesterol in the blood and regulating blood pressure.
  • The artichoke also reduces the presence of sugar in the blood.
  • It is very diuretic, wonderful because to eliminate fluid retention and to prevent uric acid from accumulating along with many other toxins present in the body.

2. Water, apples and strawberries

Why drink apple and strawberry water? And why right after lunch? Take note of the explanation:

  • Much of the uric acid is generated during digestion. It is when some foods make us unable to properly digest many of its elements, such as purines. If during digestion we include an apple and strawberry juice, we will achieve that the hydrochloric acid (HCl) alkalizes the digestive process a little better and neutralizes the acids produced during digestion, including uric acid.
  • Apple and strawberries stimulate  both HCl and bicarbonate production, allowing uric acid to be reduced.


  1. Boil a chopped apple in just over a glass of water (about 250 ml).
  2. Add 5 very clean strawberries and let it cook for half an hour.
  3. Then filter the contents and drink the resulting water, about 15 minutes after your lunch. If you do it 3 times a week, you will notice the results in your next analyzes.
