Les merveilles que le chou peut accomplir dans un régime contre la goutte

Saviez-vous que le chou est le deuxième légume le plus consommé au monde juste après la pomme de terre ? C'est ce légume feuillu qui existe en deux couleurs, vert et violet. Le navigateur français Jacques Cartier a introduit le chou en Amérique en 1536. Le chou est également considéré comme la nourriture nationale de la Russie. Saviez-vous également que le chou a plus de vitamine C par portion qu'une orange ??

Notez que le chou rouge contient plus de vitamine C que le chou vert, 57 mg contre 37 mg pour 100 grammes. Il est riche en vitamines K, C, B6 et est chargé de minéraux tels que le potassium, le manganèse et le fer. Une tasse de chou vous fournit 90% de l'apport quotidien recommandé en vitamine K, qui aide votre corps à lutter contre les envahisseurs et les bactéries, renforce votre système immunitaire et vous protège contre les maladies et les affections. Le chou fait partie de la famille des crucifères, qui comprend également le chou-fleur, le brocoli, les choux de Bruxelles et le bok choy, le légume le plus populaire en Chine.

Le chou est également connu pour purifier le sang et peut aider à éliminer les toxines pour contrôler les niveaux d'acide urique dans votre sang. En particulier, le chou rouge contient un flavonoïde appelé cyanidine, qui est également le flavonoïde le plus abondant dans les cerises sucrées et crues ainsi que les cerises aigres à environ 75 mg pour 100 grammes !!

Cela fait du chou rouge un aliment important dans un régime contre la goutte. De plus, les anthocyanes que l'on trouve dans le chou rouge ont des composés anti-inflammatoires puissants. Il est riche en acides aminés et est censé aider ceux qui souffrent de tout type d'inflammation. Pour les personnes souffrant de goutte et de diabète, le chou est extrêmement faible sur l'indice glycémique et est également riche en fibres, en fibres solubles qui peuvent aider à réduire l'IG.

De plus, certains patients atteints de goutte jurent par l'utilisation du chou comme traitement topique de la goutte en enveloppant les feuilles de chou autour des articulations affectées pour soulager la douleur. Une méthode populaire consiste à appliquer des feuilles de chou congelées sur l'articulation enflammée. Une enzyme présente dans les feuilles de chou peut aider à éliminer les cristaux qui sont nichés autour de l'articulation. Personnellement, je n'ai jamais utilisé ce traitement topique pour soulager la douleur d'une crise de goutte. Je suis d'accord que vous devriez essayer d'incorporer du chou rouge dans votre régime contre la goutte chaque semaine.

      Hi Spiros, thank you for all the information and advice, it’s all very helpful. I get gout off and on during the year, have a pretty well balanced diet but have to confess it can get a bit high protein sometimes.
      I have found drink cheap instant coffee really helps when I get an attack. I up my intake it really helps to ease things until I can get some meds like colchicine.
      I thought this might be beneficial for some of your other readers.

      Is green cabbage good for gout?

    • Carlotta

      Hello! Thanks so much for tips. I’m new to this Gout issues and hate it with a passion. Am working hard trying to avoid more pain in my feet. Trying hard NOT to do the meds, so trying to take control on my eating habits. The frustration for me is the conflict between various sites as to what I can and can not eat.

      I happen to find out about the cabbage while in the store looking for food to eat. Tomatoes, a site says I can eat, but you are saying I can’t. How do I get your book? Thanks!

      • Spiro Koulouris

        Hi Carlotta!

        You can order my book from Amazon or on our website as an ebook. Amazon does sell the printed version though if you prefer.

      I’m from Melbourne, any kit available to test uric acid at home regularly?

      • Spiro Koulouris

        Check out UA Sure or Care Touch. Check Amazon Australia might sell it or Google it and go on their website.

      Do you know if the Chinese nap cabbage is good for a gout diet too?


      Haven’t had an attack in 18 months& eat just about everything,last week I had lobster Mon-hamburger &lamb chops during the week,Fri had a healthy dose oof brisket soaked in brine w/pepper corn seasoning &cabbage.Sunday my wrist started aching &Mon.am it was all swollen &hot. I eat the other foods pretty regular w/no problem.Do you think the brisket caused it?

      • Spiro Koulouris

        Yeah perhaps all that meat combined surged your uric acid and turned into a gout attack. Lay off the meat, remember to eat not more than 10% of your daily calories as outlined in my 80-10-10 gout diet.

      Is it true that tomatos cause gout flare ups? Please advise.

    • Alek

      What about oats? Some say they are OK,others avoid them,I am curious what Spiro thinks!

      Thank you for a great site!

      Hi Spiro,
      What’s your opinion on the theory of blood type and your diet. The Blood type 0 is for example recommended to eat high me an protein meat…

      • Spiro Koulouris

        Hi Rich!

        The idea behind the Blood Type Diet created by naturopath Peter J. D’Adamo is a theory and not factual based on any conclusive studies. There isn’t any evidence that this type of dieting works so it’s not something I would follow. We have to avoid these fads and stick to the basics. You want to live long and be healthy? Talk to somebody who is 100 years old and over and you’ll quickly notice it is very close to the 80-10-10 diet which I did not invent and take no credit for whatsoever. It has been with us for us since the dawn of man. Our bodies are meant to live on a plant based diet which can be found everywhere and some meat.

      Thank you for all these great tips. Can a high protein diet trigger a gout attack?

      • Spiro Koulouris

        Hi George!

        Yes of course it can! That is one of the main reasons people are diagnosed with gout every day. Due to their high protein diets that put a strain on the kidneys. Check out my other posts on this site to learn more.

      I never thought it would happen to me but I realized swollen feet were something more than I thought. The extraordinary thing is my body started CRAVING red cabbage and I never eat it because I have IBS. But the craving was so strong. Then I realized it was gout. The pain was horrendous but my dad suffered for years and I knew what to do. I actually made gross shakes out of red cabbage. I watched my diet and started walking even through the pain. Now I’m gout free and running a couple miles a day.

      What about cauliflower? I’ve heard it is high in purines?

      • Spiro Koulouris

        It’s fine, it’s a complex carb which your body breaks down rather easily compared to meat. Enjoy your cauliflower! I like mine steamed or raw.

        Cauliflower are relatively high purine best in small servings like green beans, mushrooms, asparagus, spinach.

      I can see where wrapping a gouty toe with cabbage may reduce the inflammation as it works well for reducing breast engorgement in nursing mothers. I wouldn’t know about removing crystals but it would be worth trying.
