Medicinal Plants: Nature’s Prodigy for Hyperuricemia and its related Upshot
Keywords:Hyperuricemia, Metabolic disorder, Uric acid.
Uric acid formation occurs both endogenously and exogenously in the liver, intestines, and blood vessel endothelium when injured, dying, and dead cells transform the nucleic acids adenine and guanine into uric acid. Atypically high levels of uric acid in the blood, or Hyperuricemia, can cause gout and arthritis. Over the past few years, hyperuricemia has become increasingly prevalent. Various studies reported that the increased level of uric acid in blood is not only associated with gout but also may contributory factor for cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, atrial fibrillation, chronic kidney disease, heart failure, coronary artery disease, and cardiovascular death. There has been an emergent attention in uric acid because of the increased prevalence of hyperuricemia worldwide and its induced metabolic disorders. This review article summarizes various traditional plants and their chemical constituents utilized in the cure and treatment of elevated levels of uric acid and its repairable risk factors.
