LUPINS with Vitamin E

Traditionally used to contribute to diets that reduce uric acid.

Overview

Lupin seeds have been considered of great nutritional value due to their high content of proteins (39%), lipids (17%), glucides (35%), silicon mineral salts, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, manganese and zinc. Lupin seeds are consumed once they have been cooked and previously macerated in water and salt.

Therapeutic indications and uses

This plant species is attributed with having properties that could act as coadjuvants to treat rheumatic pain, especially the pain associated to uric acid.

The therapeutic properties derived from this botanical species have only been used by folk medicine, with no scientific proof to support them.

The information emerging from the research field suggests that we are dealing with active ingredients of a chemical structure similar to steroids. Other studies are focused on proving that a molecule located in the lupin extract might be able to inhibit uric acid synthesis or to encourage its elimination.
