Chances are you’ve probably seen someone suffering from gout and it can be extremely painful. Gout occurs when the body cannot adequately eliminate uric acid and uric crystals begins to accumulate in the joints. It’s most commonly known to occur in the big toe, but it can happen in other joints as well. If left untreated, it can lead to even more intense pain and joint damage.

On this week’s episode we speak with John Mills, who is currently the Director of Quality and Compliance for Highland Laboratories and the lead formulator for Highland’s products. He is also on the board of the NPA, a leading natural products industry trade association to assure quality dietary supplements across the marketplace. We speak with John and learn a little about the history of gout, one of the oldest identifiable diseases, the dangers of taking gout medication long term, the natural ingredients that can be used to combat gout, and some of the fantastic products Mt. Angel Vitamins has formulated to combat gout.


“THERE ARE SOME FOOD GROUPS THAT CAN HELP LIMIT THE URIC ACID CYCLE, OR HELP LIMIT THE EFFECTS OF THAT CYCLE IN YOUR BODY. ONCE AGAIN AMPLIFIED PRODUCTION OF URIC ACID IS ONLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ABOUT 10% OF GOUT RELATED ISSUES, AND 90% ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.”
