Q1 What is uric acid?
A1 Uric acid is produced when foods that are high in purines,
e.g. red meat and alcohol, are digested. The body filters
uric acid through the kidneys and excretes it via the urine.
However, uric acid can build up in the body if a diet is high
in purine-rich foods or if the body can’t eliminate them
Q2 What are the consequences of high uric acid levels?
A2 High levels of uric acid can lead to the development of gout.
Symptoms of gout include sudden, severe attacks of pain,
swelling, redness and tenderness in the joints, often in the
joint at the base of the big toe.1 Middle-aged men and
postmenopausal women are at higher risk of developing gout.
Q3 How can celery help?
A3 Celery contains an active ingredient called luteolin. Luteolin
can help decrease uric acid levels and reduce the production
of inflammatory substances (NO, IL-1B, TNF-x). This can help
lessen the build-up of uric acid crystals in the joint and
improve the inflammation that causes the pain.2-7
Q4 What else can celery help with?
A4 Celery seeds have a long traditional use in helping promote
urinary flow. Due to the fact the seeds are rich in potassium
and sodium, they can help maintain the fluid balance in the
body, and assist with the removal of excess water from the
body through urination. This makes celery a useful herb in
oedema or fluid retention when this is caused by build-up
of excess fluid.8,9
