This is a review of the product Total Cleanse Uric Acid. This dietary supplement is claimed to be high in vitamin C. It is said to help cleanse the body of uric acid. Therefore this product could be used to manage gout by controlling the uric acid levels.
2 capsules contain:
- Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) (100mg)
- Folate (as folic acid) (400mcg)
- Tart cherry (prunus cerasus) (fruit concentrate) (supplying 3.2 mg anthocyanins) (400mg)

Other ingredients are vegetable cellulose capsule, cellulose, silica, and magnesium stearate. This supplement has a diuretic property, aiding in reduction of uric acid in the blood. The vitamin C and celery absorb the uric acid from the blood, thereby reducing the concentration of uric acid in the blood. Ingredients such as turmeric have an anti-inflammatory effect; tart cherry and quercetin remove toxins, and bromelain eases joint pain.
Two capsules should be taken with a meal or a glass of water each day. Do not use if you have bile duct obstruction, stomach ulcers, gallstones, or hyper-acidity, or if you are pregnant.

Conclusion – Total Cleanse Uric Acid
This is a product that may be used to speed up recovery after an attack of gout, or to decrease the risk of having such a flare-up. This dietary supplement is backed by a 30-day refund guarantee policy. The formula is designed to prevent uric acid build up while soothing pain and discomfort. These are good points, however, there are concerns with this product. Firstly, the guarantee itself is not in fact a 100% money-back guarantee. Each return attracts a 20% restocking fee. Another issue is the safety of this product. Although it is said that there are no side effects, the manufacturers state that this product should not be used by those suffering from various health problems, ranging from stomach ulcers, and gallstones, to bile-duct obstruction; pregnant women should also avoid taking it. It would therefore be best to consult your doctor before you use this product just to be extra safe. Lastly, this product does not come with attractive purchasing offers. These, in the form of discounts, would have made this dietary supplement more economical in the long run. Especially in the case of gout, which is not easily cured, effective management must be applied to avoid changes in the joints and pain during a flare-up.
