This study was carried out to investigate the effect of dietary intervention of different concentrations (5% and 10%) from parsley (seeds and leaves), cherry and tomato on hyperuricemia in rats. This study was carried on 80 male albino rats; Sprague-Dawley strain weighing (130±10 g). The experimental period was 6 weeks. The results showed significant decrease (P<0.05) in serum uric acid and urea nitrogen as compared to positive control (+ve) and also significant decrease (P<0.05) in serum total

The best results of histological examination of liver were in rats group treated with 5 and 10% cherry followed by parsley seeds and leaves 10%. While the best histological examinations of kidney were observed in parsley seeds and leaves 10% followed by 5%. It could be concluded that parsley (leaves and seeds), tomato and cherry reduce serum uric acid and urea nitrogen levels and improve kidney and liver functions.
