@ Colin Purves. I can not answer that question, I wish I could.. My hope is that regular intake of malic acid is dissolving the excess uric acid that my body can’t handle, before it has a chance to accumulate and cause problems. Can that process actually take place in the human body. ? If that is the case then one would think that it would result in a lower UA blood count, not higher ?. If it is effective. is long term use of malic acid safe ? Intriguing yes. A lot of unknowns for sure. For me, one gout-free day at a time.
