5 Good food for Stomach Ulcer Diet

Stomach ulcers are open sores that develop on the stomach lining when acids from digested food damage the stomach wall. Foods, fruits, and vegetables rich in dietary fiber, vitamin A, and flavonoids are the best foods to eat. Green tea and cranberry juice are also helpful.

Foods or beverages don't cause ulcers, nor can they cure them. However, some foods help repair damaged tissue, while others irritate your ulcer and threaten your digestive tract's natural layer of protection.

This article looks at the best foods to choose.

1.Foods With Probiotics

Foods like yogurt, miso, kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha, and tempeh are rich in “good” bacteria called probiotics. They may help ulcers by fighting an H. pylori infection or by helping treatments work better.

2.Fiber-Rich Foods

Apples, pears, oatmeal, and other foods that are high in fiber are good for ulcers in two ways. Fiber can lower the amount of acid in your stomach while easing bloating and pain. Research has also shown that a diet rich in fiber may help prevent ulcers.

3.Breads and grains: Whole grain breads, and whole or cracked grains like oats, quinoa, farro, millet, or sorghum, are good sources of fiber to include in your diet.

4.Herbs and spices: You can freely use most mild herbs and spices, because they're sources of antioxidants. Best bets includeturmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and garlic, which have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. For a sweetener, try to use honey instead of sugar.

5.Bell Pepper

It’s rich in vitamin C, which can help protect you from ulcers in a number of ways. For one, vitamin C plays an important role in wound healing. People who don’t get enough are also more likely to get ulcers. Get this nutrient in citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwis, and broccoli, too.

What Causes Ulcers?

Doctors used to think that certain foods could give you ulcers. But now we know other things cause them, like taking pain-relieving drugs for a long time or infection with bacteria called H. pylori.Although food doesn’t cause or treat ulcers, some can make your pain worse, while others may help you heal faster.
