Summary, etc.:
Our most respected scientific literature is bursting with evidence that elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions. David Perlmutter exposes the deadly truth about uric acid and teaches strategies to manage its levels, including simple dietary edits, identifying common pharmaceuticals that threaten to increase uric acid, and lifestyle interventions, like restorative sleep and exercise. Features the groundbreaking "LUV" (Lower Uric Values) diet, 35 delicious recipes, self-assessment quizzes, and a 21-day program for dropping levels.
What do obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, fatty liver disease, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, neurological disorders, and premature death have in common? All can be stoked by high uric acid levels. Our most respected scientific literature is bursting with evidence that elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions, but mainstream medicine for the most part remains unaware of this connection. This is especially alarming because a large number of Americans don't know they are suffering from increased levels, putting them at risk for developing or exacerbating potentially life-threatening illnesses. Offering an engaging blend of science and practical advice, Drop Acid exposes the deadly truth about uric acid and teaches invaluable strategies to manage its levels, including how to: reduce fructose and foods high in "purines" through simple dietary edits; lower uric acid levels through natural hacks like consuming tart cherries, vitamin C, quercetin, and coffee; identify common pharmaceuticals that threaten to increase uric acid; implement lifestyle interventions, like restorative sleep and exercise; easily test your uric acid levels at home--a test routinely performed in your doctor's office during regular check-ups but typically ignored.
