What is uric acid?

Uric acid is formed when the body breaks down purines, proteins found in our cells and in our diet. After it is produced, the body carries it to the kidneys to be filtered and eventually excreted through the urine. When its levels are high it can cause problems such as gout and kidney stones.

The Role of Diet in Uric Acid Levels

Diet plays a critical role in regulating uric acid levels in the body. Foods rich in purine, such as red meats and seafood can increase uric acid levels, leading to health risks. Conversely, foods that promote alkalinity in the body, such as fruits and vegetables, can help reduce levels. In particular, eating foods rich in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, and low in fat can have a positive effect. In addition, adequate hydration enhances the elimination of uric acid through the kidneys. Awareness and selection of appropriate foods can be a powerful strategy for maintaining healthy uric acid levels, encouraging a more balanced nutritional approach.

The proposal of nature

Nettle, with its nutritional properties and natural action, is emerging as a powerful natural ally in the battle against elevated uric acid. Rich in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, nettle not only helps manage uric acid levels but also offers a wide range of health benefits. Recognized for its diuretic properties, it enhances the elimination of toxins from the body, including uric acid, through the kidneys.

Consumption of nettle can be done in various ways for maximum benefits. Decoctions of nettle leaves are a popular and effective way of use. You can also add nettle to salads, soups and other dishes for extra flavor and nutritional value. Nettle supplements are also offered for those seeking a more concentrated form of its benefits. However, before adding nettle or any supplement to your diet, consult your doctor, especially if you are already on medication, to avoid adverse interactions.

Complementary Physical Methods

Beyond diet and consumption of herbs such as nettle, there are other natural strategies that can improve uric acid management.


Adequate hydration is critical, as drinking adequate amounts of water helps dissolve uric acid in the blood and aids in its elimination through the kidneys. Aim to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water per day, increasing the amount on days of intense physical activity or high temperatures.

Physical Activity

Regular exercise is also a powerful strategy for improving uric acid management. Physical activity helps to increase metabolism and enhance toxin elimination through sweat and kidneys. You don’t have to be overly intense – even moderate activity such as walking briskly can have a positive impact.

Stress management

The link between stress and elevated uric acid levels is well documented, with stress playing a catalytic role in disrupting normal metabolism and reinforcing unhealthy eating habits. In addition to the physical exercise already mentioned, which among other things helps reduce stress, try the following:

Hobbies and Creative Activities

Spend time on activities that fill you with satisfaction and pleasure, such as reading, painting, gardening, or even cooking. Such activities can be an escape from the daily pressures and provide a sense of calm and well-being.

Quality sleep

Improving the quality of your sleep can have a significant impact on stress management. Ensure your sleeping space is comfortable and quiet, limit exposure to screens and other sources of blue light before bedtime. Try to maintain a regular sleep schedule.

Stress management with the help of herbs

It is now well known that stress is not only a psychological challenge, but also something that can be managed with the help of nature, especially through herbs. For more information and tips on using herbs to manage anxiety, see our article here.

Conclusion: Holistic Approach to Uric Acid Management

As we come to the end of this exploration of managing uric acid through natural methods, it is important to remember the critical importance of a holistic approach. Proper nutrition, enriched with health-supporting and purine-reducing foods, regular exercise, adequate hydration and effective stress management are the foundations for healthy regulation of uric acid levels.

Incorporating natural supplements and herbs, such as nettle, into the daily routine can provide additional support for metabolism and uric acid elimination. However, true change comes from implementing a holistic approach that combines all of these strategies.

Overall, uric acid management is not limited to just avoiding certain foods or using a natural supplement alone. Instead, an integrated approach that takes into account diet, lifestyle and psychological well-being is required. With ongoing care and attention to our body’s needs, it is possible to keep uric acid levels under control and promote long-term health and wellness.
