Gout is the result of a build of waste material called uric acid, which forms tiny crystals in some of the joints of the body (Health Direct)
Pain and inflammation occur when too much uric acid crystallises and deposits in the joints (Mayo Clinic)
According to Webmd
" Uric acid is produced from the natural breakdown of your body's cells and from the foods you eat.Most of the uric acid is filtered out by the kidneys and passes out of the body in urine. A small amount passes out of the body in stool. But if too much uric acid is being produced or if the kidneys are not able to remove it from the blood normally, the level of uric acid in the blood increases."
Mangiferin , a chemical compound naturally found in mangoes, also found in Aquilaria Crassna, possesses several health endorsing properties such as antioxidant, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, antiallergic, anticancer, hypocholesterolemic, and immunomodulatory. It suppresses the activation of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor isoforms by changing the transcription process. Mangiferin protects against different human cancers, including lung, colon, breast, and neuronal cancers, through the suppression of tumor necrosis factor α expression, inducible nitric oxide synthase potential, and proliferation and induction of apoptosis. It also protects against neural and breast cancers by suppressing the expression of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 and MMP-7 and inhibiting enzymatic activity, metastatic potential, and activation of the β-catenin pathway (Muhammad 2017)
