Stomach ulcers can bring you both pain and tears. And as a natural health blog our duty is to educate you on ways to combat such issues.
On this post we shall be talking a little bit about garlic which can keep levels of the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacterium that causes stomach ulcers in check.
Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle has discovered that garlic exhibits specific antimicrobial activity against H. pylori without entirely eliminating the strain.
Which means chewing garlic or taking it in supplement form can help you in your fight against the disease.
To be more direct, it can ease the condition but not cure it and in most people it can cause irritation when taken without other ulcer meds.
One other crucial point to take into consideration is to never take garlic on an empty stomach as it can worsen the condition.
