Ulcers (Stomach and Intestinal) Overview:

A list of supplements that have stronger than average anti-ulcer properties. This list may be a mixture of antiinflammatory and antioxidant agents (which directly reduce stomach damage), antibacterial agents (which reduce the negative effects of heliobacter pylori), and antistress agents (as excessive stress may cause stomach ulceration).

Suggested Supplements

Nigella sativa

Dosage: 3g

2g of Nigella sativa (3g is just the standard dosage), in regards to the basic seed extract, is able to reduce stomach ulceration and heliobacter pylori infection by two thirds; this level was comparable to a combination of reference drugs, but the study also used a proton pump inhibitor alongside the Nigella sativa.

Due to both antioxidant and antibacterial properties alongside the low price of the seeds, nigella sativa is a valuable option for stomach ulceration.


Dosage: 0.16mg

In NSAID induced ulcers, theaflavins (and black tea) appear to be effective at fairly low doses in reducing stomach ulceration to the same degree as Omeprazole. 1mg/kg Theaflavins in rats (0.16mg/kg in humans, or about 11mg for a 150lb person) appears to be effective.

This is a dose attainable via Black Tea consumption as well, so a supplement is not really needed.
