                                        Foods to eat, avoid when battling stomach ulcer Part 2

Some of the foods stomach ulcer patients should include in their diets are;


1.       Fruits and Vegetables: I guess a good place to start from is to point out that all fruits should be included in the diet of an ulcer patient as some contain high amounts of acid. For instance: lemons, limes, plums, grapes, grapefruits, and blueberries. Fruits like apples and berries contain fiber and antioxidants which are good for the body. Vitamin A rich vegetables like potatoes are excellent for the diet of ulcer patients. This is because these foods help increase mucus production in your gastrointestinal tract. If you notice that peppers cause you discomfort, best avoid them as well as products made with them.

2.       Fiber-Rich Foods: Foods like nuts and oats are highly rich in fiber and just as we’ve established in the preceding paragraph, fibers are great for ulcer patients.

3.        Proteins: It should be noted that the kind of protein which ulcer patients should include in their diets are those rich in low fat. Foods like eggs, fish, peas, are excellent examples of low-fat protein. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential nutrients which the body cannot produce by itself but can be obtained by eating fatty fish like salmon or even by taking Omega 3 supplements.

4.       Herds: Herds like ginger are super rich sources of antioxidants. You may have noticed that antioxidants are a common component in the foods recommended for ulcer patients. In addition to being antioxidants, some of these herbs are anti-inflammatory which are not only beneficial in healing the ulcer but help prevent more drastic diseases.
