A new research paper has just been published (peer reviwed). Extracts from the paper abstract: ..... In the present study, the role of the lemon fruit juice and/or the water soluble extracts in lowering the blood uric acid level was evaluated in both human subjects and mice. Fresh lemon fruits, excluding the peel and seeds, were used to prepare the juice and/or water soluble extracts. Human subjects with hyperuricemia were given the freshly squeezed pure lemon fruit juice daily at 30 mL/day (equivalent to a lemon a day) for 6 weeks. ........ At the end of clinical study, fasting blood samples were collected for blood tests. .......... The results showed that the lemon fruit juice and/or the water soluble extracts significantly lowered serum uric acid levels in both human subjects and mice. Neither renal nor liver dysfunction was observed. The results lay a foundation for the future development of dietary treatments of hyperuricemia in humans.
