The old saying “prevention is better than cure” is particularly true when it comes to people who suffer from gout. Gout, a form of arthritis, can begin with sudden, intense bouts of pain, stiffness, swelling, redness and tenderness in one or more joints, often at the base of the big toe. These symptoms are due to the accumulation of these crystals in the joints, related to the body's response to inflammation. But it is also said that this “king's disease” can largely be addressed by none other than the “queen of all fruits”, mangosteen.
Her nickname queen comes from what some people call beneficial health attributes.
