PurMedica, the manufacturer of Urcinol, does not state any possible side effects for the suggested two-capsule per day dosage, according to the company website. The warning label on the bottle suggests consulting a physician before use, and avoiding use completely if pregnant or nursing.
PurMedica states that Urcinol is an all-natural supplement comprised of eight herbal supplements including banaba leaf powder, acai fruit extract, milk thistle, Mojave yucca root and turmeric root extract. Users must avoid Urcinol if there are known or possible allergies to any of the listed ingredients.
PurMedica suggests that these natural ingredients work together to help alleviate flare-ups and assist the body in removing uric acid, the primary cause of gout flare-ups. The dietary supplement is intended to relieve current symptoms such as sudden severe pain, limited mobility, swollen joints, and warm burning joint pain, which are caused by high levels of uric acid in the bloodstream. The herbal blend also reportedly works to prevent future flare-ups by breaking down uric acid crystals that build up over time.
Urcinol has not been evaluated by the FDA, and thus PurMedica recommends that the product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. The available information made available by PurMedica is to be used for informational purposes only.
