I have read several articles saying that Vitamin C is good at keeping Gout at bay. It says it keeps your uric acid low and blah, blah, blah. I’m here to tell you that I ain’t buying it. After my Gout incident with Niacin, I ward off any vitamins now! You can get all the vitamins you need in a well balanced (gout friendly) diet. Besides, its also said that Vitamin C can keep your cold at bay, and that does not work either! So don’t believe it. If you take Vitamin C and can vouch for it, please comment here. I just don’t think its viable at all.
