The Science

What is Krystalase? 

Excessive uric acid levels are the root cause of gout, a debilitating and disfiguring condition characterized by severe joint inflammation. Although uric acid is a normally occurring waste product produced by healthy bodies, excessive levels can cause needle-sharp uric acid crystals to form inside joints throughout the body. The resulting inflammation is extremely painful and can cause permanent joint damage.

Theraneutrics is developing Krystalase, a patent-pending probiotic supplement specifically engineered to take up and break down uric acid in the gut. By eliminating uric acid in the GI tract, Krystalase turns the gut into a 'net sink' capable of lowering levels throughout the body.

OTC supplements are commonly used by people with gout. However, there is no scientific evidence backing their effectiveness.


At Theraneutrics we are working to develop Krystalase into an effective, safe, and affordable gout solution. Because Krystalase is a probiotic, the active ingredients stays in the gut and doesn’t enter the bloodstream - unlike prescription drugs. Because Krystalase stays out of the circulation, it is safe for your liver and kidneys.


for the Gut 

Krystalase is built on a probiotic yeast strain that has been studied for decades, and has been shown to be completely safe for human consumption. We engineered this probiotic strain using modern biotechnology tools to give it the ability to take up uric acid and break it down into an innocuous waste product.


Consuming Krystalase turns the gut into a ‘net sink’ for uric acid. This in turn reduces uric acid levels throughout the body. Unlike other supplements marketed towards gout, Krystalase actually targets the root cause of gout.

Our goal is to provide you with peer-reviewed scientific evidence demonstrating Krystalase is safe and effective. Krystalase will be available as a over the counter supplement, and you won't need to see a doctor to get a prescription.
