Watermelons help to treat gout in a number of ways, including the fact that they neutralize uric acid. This fruit contains about the same amount of potassium as pineapples, which accounts for about two percent of your daily allowance. Many doctors recommend watermelon among other fruits as a sort of food therapy for gout.
Watermelons can also lower uric acid in the body, which is the leading known cause of gout pain. There is no doubt that watermelons are very nutritious all around, but especially because of their high vitamin C levels which contribute significantly to their popularity as a treatment for this condition.
