Helps to combat gout
Attacks of gout usually last up to 10 days and are almost impossible to predict. Gout is caused by the build-up of uric acid (urate) in the bloodstream (hyperuricemia).
Normally harmless waste product, urate is produced by the body when it breaks down purines which are found naturally in the body but also in some foods and in certain alcohols , including beer, stout and port, which led to it being known as the ‘disease of kings, associated with a rich diet.
