Painful and Swollen Joints
Joint swelling and pain could be a result of uric acid deposition in our joints as crystals should our body produce too much of it. The uric acid crystals will induce joint inflammation causing pain. Some people may have no visible symptoms, but a blood test may detect elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. In the case of having symptoms, in the early stages usually only one joint is affected, typically the big toe, knee or ankle. The affected joint will suddenly turn red, swollen, and acutely painful. In severe cases, joints may become deformed, and people suffered may be unable to return to work. Excessive uric acid may also deposit to other parts of the body such as the kidneys and skin. If the kidneys are affected, the results can be serious.
Herbal Remedies to Relieve Pain
Proper care and dietary restrictions can lower the risk of recurrent attacks. Herbal remedies with gooseberry or tart cherry have been used by traditional physicians to help patients with joint pain, swelling and some other symptoms.
– Amalaki Indian Gooseberry
Indian Gooseberry is known as “Amla” in Hindi and “Amalaki” in Sanskrit, meaning “the nurse”. Amalaki fruits have traditionally been used in Ayurvedic (traditional Indian) medicine and are included in herbal preparations. The fruits are reputed to contain large amount of vitamin C, with juices containing nearly 20 and 160 times as much vitamin C as in orange and apple juice respectively. Amalaki fruit is also a rich source of polyphenolic compounds, potassium, calcium and amino acids.
The inflammatory process, which in joints is induced by uric acid accumulation and may ultimately lead to joint swollen or other joint problems, was reported to be associated with the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Various researches using Amalaki suggested that components in the fruit could inhibit pro-oxidizing factors. Vitamin C is one of the powerful antioxidants in Amalaki. Remarkably, properties of vitamin C is preserved by other antioxidants in the fruit, thus ensuring its effectiveness on scavenging ROS and cell-protecting ability.
Gallic acid contained in Amalaki is a polyphenolic compound which has been proven to promote joint health. Together, constituents of Amalaki provide relief against joint pain and oxidation.
– Tart Cherry
Tart cherry, also called sour cherry, contains antioxidizing anthocyanins, which provide the distinctive red colour of the fruit. In addition, it also contains other bioflavonoids such as chlorogenic acid, gallic acid, p-coumaric acid and quercetin. Tart cherry anthocyanins possess a wide range of biochemical and pharmacological effects and have been recommended as healthy nutritional supplements.
The predominant mechanism of their biological actions is thought to result from anti-oxidant activity, enzyme inhibition, and the capacity to scavenge free radicals and reduce lipid peroxidation. Elevated levels of uric acid are associated with the onset and progression of joint problems. Consumption of tart cherries in diet has been shown to target plasma uric acid level and relieve joint pain.
