C for Gout

The study followed nearly 47,000 US men from 1986 to 2006.

The researchers found that every 500 milligram increase of vitamin C produced a 17% decrease of gout, 1500 milligrams a day had a 45% lower risk. An orange has about 70 milligrams of vitamin C. Steady though, because adults should not consume more than 1000 milligrams of vitamin C each day.
