Gout – Natural Remedies

Gout is a very painful form of arthritis that is caused by an excess of uric acid build-up in the body.

As a result, these uric acid deposits can become crystallized and accumulate in between the joints, damaging them.
Those afflicted with gout often have uric acid deposits in their big toe joints.
