It's possible these may help ; they're safe to try, but i'm unaware of research proving they help, so consider treatments with scientific support. Vit c has been shown to help, as has cherries ; cherry juice. For other good options see http://umm.Edu/health/medical/altmed/condition/gout 84% of those who tried apple cider vinegar self-report that it helps: http://earthclinic.Com/cures/gout.Html.

They have no value. Unless you normalize your serum uric acid with Allopurinol or a similar med you will eventually develop irreversible joint and kidney damage as well as accelerated arteriosclerosis.
