Live a Longer, Leaner, Healthier Life
Drop Acid, the new book from neurologist and New York Times best-selling author Dr. David Perlmutter, illuminates the consequences of increased uric acid levels in the bloodstream due to diet, and offers simple dietary and lifestyle tweaks to help you lose weight, as well as prevent and reverse disease. The LUV DietTM by David Perlmutter, MD (Lower Uric Values), featured in Drop Acid, includes recipes from our founder Tricia Williams. The LUV DietTM plan provides organic, ready-to-eat, nutrient-dense meals, low in fructose and purines, to help you live a longer, leaner, healthier life.
Recent scientific research has shown that elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions – obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, fatty liver disease, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and neurological disorders.
Consumption of fructose, through added sugars and processed foods, and purines (molecules made up of carbon and nitrogen atoms found in foods, especially in meats) often exceed the body’s ability to process them. As a result, too much uric acid builds up in the bloodstream.
“At Daily Dose, founder Tricia Williams lives by the motto: Reach for the kitchen cabinet before the medicine cabinet. It’s a dictum I can definitely stand behind and preach myself. Her mission is to help people find better health through food and, like me, she understands that the future of healthcare is in prevention. AND, she knows the science and art of culinary genius.
It was a joy to collaborate with her on original recipes for Drop Acid that not only meet The LUV DietTM guidelines but are outrageously delicious – packed with flavor and nutrition. We’ve taken our collaboration a step further with a nationwide ready-to-eat meal plan. Dr. David Perlmutter

What are purines?
Purines are chemical substances that occur naturally in the body and in some foods. When the body breaks down purines, this creates uric acid as a waste product. The kidneys filter it from the blood and pass it out of the body in the urine. However, uric acid can sometimes build up in the blood if the body produces too much uric acid or does not get rid of enough of it.
While we do our best, we do not provide a product for people with medically-necessitated diets or severe allergies. We are a facility that processes tree nuts.
