Gout is caused by crystal-like deposits in your joints. The classic sign of gout is pain in the joint of the big toe. Gout happens when your body is unable to process purine-rich foods. Sufferers are recommended to go easy on red meat, meat extracts, organ meats, shellfishes, fava beans, asparagus, peas, mushrooms and cauliflower.
Plenty of leafy green vegetables and foods rich in vitamin C, such as bell peppers, citrus fruits, etc. are also recommended. Sufferers are also advised to drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins from the system.
