5 Best Foods You Can Eat To Relieve Symptoms Of Stomach Ulcer

Open sores that form on the stomach lining are known as stomach ulcers. They go by the labels gastric and peptic ulcers, respectively. Even while they can affect anyone at any age, they seem to affect persons over 60 more frequently. Additionally, men are more likely to get stomach ulcers.

The stomach wall becomes damaged by the acids released during food digestion, which results in ulcers. A Helicobacter pylori infection is the most frequent cause of stomach ulcers (H. pylori). Long-term usage of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is another contributing factor (NSAIDs).

For a very long time, people thought that particular lifestyle choices led to stomach ulcers. There is no hard data to support the widespread assumption that consuming spicy food and being stressed are related to ulcers.

Although dietary changes can be helpful, spicy foods aren't always causing irritation. Nowadays, doctors recommend a diet high in fruits and vegetables. According to WebMD & Healthline, the following 5 foods are the best to eat if you have a stomach ulcer:

1. Foods rich in Vitamin A

Vitamin A is found in foods including broccoli, sweet potatoes, kale, spinach, and collard greens. These meals stimulate your digestive tract's mucus production, which could help avoid ulcers.

2. Fiber-rich foods

Oatmeal, apples, pears, and other high-fiber meals are beneficial for ulcers in two ways. In addition to reducing bloating and pain, fiber can reduce the amount of acid in your stomach. Additionally, studies suggest that eating a diet high in fiber may help alleviate ulcer symptoms.

3. Sweet potato

It has a lot of vitamin A, which has been linked to findings that it can help treat and prevent stomach ulcers. Spinach, carrots, cantaloupe, and cow liver are additional foods that contain significant amounts of vitamin A.

4. Green tea

Recent studies suggest that green tea can aid in the elimination of H. pylori.

5. Flavonoid-rich foods

Included in this are snap peas, cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, and garlic. These foods may aid in defending your gut against stomach cancer, H. pylori infection, and chronic gastritis, according to research. These foods aid in reducing H. pylori development.
