Gout is a rheumatic disease resulting from deposition of uric acid crystals in tissues and fluids within the body. This process is caused by an overproduction or under excretion of uric acid. The resulting excess uric acid eventually form crystals in joints and cause the joints to become inflamed. Acute gout will typically manifest itself as an acutely red, hot, and swollen joint with excruciating pain. Recurrent bouts of acute gout can lead to a degenerative form of chronic arthritis called gouty arthritis.
According to Health Canada, the ingredient Devil’s Claw has been approved to help relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.
