Green peppers – gout relief

Luteolin, a major component of celery, blocks the enzyme Xanthine oxidase that leads to uric acid formation. Xanthine oxidase (XO) catalyses hypoxanthine and xanthine to uric acid in human metabolism. Overproduction of uric acid will lead to hyperuricemia and finally cause gout.. Luteolin is one of the major components of celery and green peppers.
