What foods soothe an ulcer?

There are certain foods that may help to soothe an ulcer and reduce symptoms. These include:

  • Milk and dairy products: Milk can neutralize stomach acid and provide a temporary protective barrier for the stomach lining. However, some people with ulcers may find that milk and dairy products can worsen their symptoms.
  • Bananas: Bananas are high in potassium and can help to reduce stomach acid. They also contain a natural antacid that can help to neutralize stomach acid.
  • Root vegetables: Vegetables such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots are high in fiber and can help to reduce inflammation in the stomach and intestines.
  • Whole grains: Whole grains such as oats, barley, and quinoa are high in fiber and can help to reduce inflammation in the stomach and intestines.
  • Lean protein: Chicken, fish, and turkey are reliable sources of lean protein that are easy to digest and can help to repair and heal the stomach lining.
  • Fruits: Apples, papayas and pineapples contain enzymes that help to break down proteins, which can reduce inflammation in the stomach and intestines.

It is important to keep in mind that different people may have different food tolerances and preferences, so it is best to work with a healthcare professional to develop a diet plan that works best for you. Additionally, avoiding foods that are known to irritate the stomach such as spicy foods, caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine can help alleviate symptoms of ulcers.
