Nutrients Help Conquer Ulcers

Thursday, 12 Jul 2012 09:32 AM


Scientists now know that the H. pylori organism causes ulcers. Fortunately, several studies have documented that certain flavonoids, extracts, and vitamin C can inhibit its growth and can be as effective as prescription medications. The most potent were:
• Epigallocatechin gallate (a component of green tea extract and white tea)
• Luteolin (celery and artichoke extract)
• Quercetin
• Curcumin
Green tea is very high in fluoride, so I would instead recommend white tea, which has much less fluoride. Plus the white variety actually has higher levels of the beneficial flavonoid than green tea. (Green and white tea can improve your health in many ways. To learn more, read my report "Miracle Tea.")


The H. pylori germ secretes a toxin that causes most digestive problems and even ulcers. Researchers were excited to discover that quercetin and curcumin block this harmful toxin.
These two powerful flavonoids also promote healing of the stomach lining and aid in preventing the formation of cancer. Meanwhile, studies show that curcumin and hesperidin boost the amount of protective mucus in the stomach, which safeguards the stomach lining from the acid. These supplements are available from natural health stores and suppliers.
Another key fact: Several studies found that both quercetin and green tea extract (EGCG) enhanced the effects of antibiotics used to kill H. pylori. This would allow you to use smaller doses of antibiotics but get the same results you would with higher, more dangerous doses.
Incidentally, researchers also found that these two flavonoids were effective in fighting antibiotic-resistant strains of H. pylori.
Another useful supplement was licorice extract. The journal Life Sciences reported on a finding that licorice extract both inhibited the growth of the H. pylori and promoted healing of the stomach lining at the same time.
Because pure licorice extract can cause high blood pressure, you should use only the deglycyrrhizinated form of licorice (DGL). DGL has proved to be effective against those strains of bacteria that are resistant to commonly used antibiotics.
One way to combine all of these flavonoids for maximum efficiency is to dissolve 250 mg. of quercetin, 250 mg. of hesperidin and 250 mg. of curcumin in one tablespoon of either extra-virgin olive oil or omega-3 oil. All of these are fat-soluble, which enhances absorption and penetration into the stomach lining. Also, add 1/4 teaspoon of pure liquid vitamin E to the oil. Mix well and swallow.
This mixture will expedite the destruction of H. pylori and simultaneously promote healing of ulcers and gastritis. It can also prevent cancer development. (For more information on fighting cancer, read my special report "Prevent Cancer Before It's Too Late.'')

If you have ulcers, you should also take two DGL capsules three times a day between meals, plus two capsules at bedtime. This regimen has been shown to be just as effective as taking prescription medications. Bolster this treatment by drinking a mixture of white tea and rosemary tea at least twice a day.
