Some foods you should eat if you have a stomach ulcer

Eating certain foods, including blackberries, broccoli, and foods containing probiotics, may be helpful against ulcer-causing bacteria.

Stomach ulcers are open sores that develop within the lining of your stomach.

According to the American College of Gastroenterology, an organization of doctors who specialize in the digestive tract, there is no specific diet a person with ulcers needs to follow. Food choices don’t cause ulcers or make them worse.

According to healthline, current diet recommendations are now based on research that certain foods may have ingredients that fight against the bacteria Helicobacter pylori, a main cause of ulcers.
