The formation of uric acid crystals in your joints is a perfect example of poor lifestyle choices. Left unattended, it can easily lead to a more painful condition known as gout.
This swelling may be slight and cause stiffness or it can create severe pain and swelling that develops in just a few hours.
The main cause is uric acid overload either due to inefficient waste elimination or excessive creation.
Uric acid is formed during the breakdown of what is known as purines. This chemical is found in many foods and occurs naturally within the body.
When the kidneys are unable to rid the body of uric acid, crystal formations are created and deposited around the joints.
Not many people know that cucumber juice is very effective when it comes to decreasing of body temperature and for removing uric acid crystallization in joints. Although you might experience a mild pain when you drink this juice, this is only a way for the body to indicate that there is a process of detoxification. In order to feel the best results you should add celery and ginger.
These herbs will reduce inflammation and increase the effects of the cucumber juice. Remember, all ingredients have to be organic.
– 2 ribs of celery
– 1 medium sized cucumber
– One-inch young ginger root
– A slice of lemon
Wash all ingredients, slice the cucumber and celery, and place them in a food processor or blender. Then add the slice of lemon and the ginger to form a smooth liquid.
Drink this mixture every day – best on an empty stomach – and try it a second time during the day if you prefer, maybe in the evenings after work.
