  6. Higher incidence of gout with age (less vitamin D and gastric acid as you get older)

  8. Increased gout with soda pop
    JAMA study from 2010.2 women >2 cans of soda daily 2X more likely to develop gout (Note that soda decreases vitamin D levels)

Low gastric acid ==>poor digestion ==> more uric acid ==> gout

   (Hypothesis by VitaminDWiki)
FACT: Gout increases with age
FACT: Gastric Acid/digestion decreases with age
FACT: Coffee increases gastric acid
FACT: Coffee decreases gout (known since 1672)
FACT: Vitamin D increased digestion
FACT: Vitamin D decrease Gout
CONCLUSION: Improved digestion ==> reduced gout
Hypothesis: Other ways to Increase digestion, such as HCL or digestive enzymes, will also decrease gout
Note: Vitamin D reduces gout by at least the following ways:

  1. improving digestion
  2. improving kidney function
  3. reducing pain
  4. reducing inflammation
