What do obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, fatty liver disease, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, neurological disorders and premature death have in common? All can be stoked by high uric acid levels.

Our most respected scientific literature is bursting with evidence that elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions, but mainstream medicine for the most part remains unaware of this connection. This is especially alarming because many people don’t know they are suffering from sky-high levels, putting them at risk for developing or exacerbating potentially life-threatening illnesses.

Offering an engaging blend of science and practical advice, Drop Acid exposes the deadly truth about uric acid and teaches invaluable strategies to manage its levels, including:

– Simple dietary edits focused on reducing fructose and foods high in ‘purines’ that can raise uric acid.
– Natural hacks that lower levels such as consuming tart cherries, vitamin C, quercetin, and coffee.
– Identifying common pharmaceuticals that threaten to increase uric acid.
– Lifestyle interventions, like restorative sleep and exercise.
– How to easily test your uric acid levels at home – a test routinely performed in your doctor’s office during regular check-ups but typically ignored.

Featuring the ground-breaking ‘LUV’ (Lower Uric Values) diet, 35 delicious recipes, self-assessment quizzes and a 21 day program for dropping levels, Drop Acid empowers readers with the information they need to address this hidden danger and live longer, leaner and healthier lives.


Dr Perlmutter again opens our eyes to another predictor of illness involved in many of the chronic ailments that plague modern humanity and provides us the tools to regain control of our metabolic health.
