Purine nucleotides are essential components of nucleic acids. Uric acid is the ultimate product of purine metabolism in humans.
The amount of uric acid that is daily synthesized in the body is about 400mg, while an additional 300mg is added to the diet.
The hypopurinic diet is introduced when the purine intake is reduced through food. This is achieved by the reduced intake of all kinds of meat and meat products, from 50 to 100g per day, intestines, vegetables from the family of legumes, alcoholic drinks and the like. It is useful that obesity is lost.
Hypopurin diets are recommended for people who have high blood uric acid levels or people who have been diagnosed with gout.
