Uric acid

Uric acid is a chemical that is formed in the blood due to an element called purine in the body. Purines are usually manufactured in the body but also enter the body through food.

Chemicals called purines are toxins of the body, which are removed from the body after being filtered by the kidneys. However, in some cases, its residues remain. Due to this, when the level of uric acid starts increasing in the body and the kidney is also unable to filter it, it breaks down in the form of crystals and gets deposited in the bones.
