This product is good for gout because it is formulated to help control uric acid levels. It came in last because the manufacturers website stated it takes a full 3 to 6 months of daily use to notice the full effects of the supplement.
Uricinex uses safe all-natural ingredients that are formulated to help the body balance uric acid levels and aid in the prevention of uric acid crystal formation. Elevated uric acid levels and crystal formation are the main causes of gout pain and the manufacturer claims that targeting this main cause can help reduce the pain of gout. Our editors feel this product could use more ingredients added to help with pain and inflammation relief. Reviews on the website by users stated that for most effectiveness, they needed to take the product consistently 3 times daily and they also had to reduce the amount of purines in their diet. Purines are a main factor in uric acid production by the body and should be reduced for successful gout treatment, but is questionable that diet alone may have caused their relief of symptoms. They did state that they noticed some effects of the product after two weeks of consistent use, but that falls short of our top product.
Beneficial ingredients include artichoke, Yucca Root and Turmeric which assist with cleansing the body of uric acid and help with joint pain and inflammation. Two main natural anti-inflammatories; MSM and glucosamine are not included in its ingredients. The main ingredients do target gout specifically, but fall short in the areas of inflammation and pain relief.
The manufacturers recommended dose on the product website states 1 to 3 capsules daily. Uricinex retails for $124.94 for four bottles. Consumers stated for most effectiveness they needed 3 capsules daily, consistently. The bottles contain 60 capsules, so this would amount to 90 capsules a month needed and cost the consumer about $53.00 a month when purchased as a single unit.
Uricinex is a good product for gout because it does target uric acid levels in the body. It just did not have enough ingredients to help join pain and inflammation. It also had a long waiting period for effects to be felt. This product could move up our editors list with a few more ingredients to target a broader range of gout symptoms and increase potency.
