Your longevity guide to Uric Acid. Gain deeper insights into your health.

Mito Health provides comprehensive biomarker analysis covering 67 key biomarkers. Our detailed reports offer insights into various aspects of your health, helping you make informed decisions

What is Uric Acid?

Uric acid is a chemical produced when your body breaks down substances called purines, which are found in certain foods and drinks. It's a waste product found in the blood, which gets filtered out by the kidneys and excreted in urine. 

Normally, uric acid dissolves in the blood and passes through the kidneys into urine. However, if your body produces too much uric acid or doesn't excrete enough, it can lead to high levels in the blood, a condition known as hyperuricemia.

How it’s related to your healthspan

The levels of uric acid in your body are closely linked to various health conditions, affecting your healthspan. 

High uric acid levels can lead to gout, a type of arthritis characterised by sudden, severe attacks of pain, redness, and tenderness in joints. Chronic hyperuricemia is also associated with an increased risk of metabolic syndrome, which includes conditions like high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels. 

Additionally, elevated uric acid levels have been linked to kidney stones and chronic kidney disease, further impacting overall health and longevity. 

Therefore, maintaining optimal uric acid levels is crucial for preventing these health issues and supporting a healthy, long life.

How to optimise your Uric Acid levels

Optimising your uric acid levels involves a combination of dietary, lifestyle, and medical interventions. 

Limiting foods high in purines, such as red meat, organ meats, and certain seafood, while increasing the intake of low-purine foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, can be of benefit to your uric acid levels. Staying well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water also helps the kidneys flush out uric acid more efficiently. 

Reducing alcohol consumption, particularly beer, is also beneficial, as alcohol can increase uric acid production.
