This is Rachel with Nutrolution in Miami Beach,
Florida. In this clip we’re talking about how to treat a stomach ulcer. Now first and
most importantly, I do recommend that if you believe you have an ulcer as identified by
pain usually in your stomach area, that you definitely consult with your physician. However
there are some nutritional things that you can do especially if you have a history of
ulcers to prevent future ulcers or to treat something that is just the beginning stages.
One of the top nutrients that I use for ulcers is an amino acid called l-glutamine and this
is the from that I use. This is like I said, it is an amino acid and it helps with healing
and integrity of the stomach lining. The best way to take it is on an empty stomach and
usually a few grams a day of 2 or more even actually studies have been done that show
people using safely up to even 9 or 10 grams a day. But starting with 1 gram 2 or 3 times
on an empty stomach is a good place to start. Another thing that I highly recommend for
you to prevent and also reverse ulcers is taking probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria
and since many, many ulcers come from an overgrowth of h-pylori, a bad bacteria, taking a good
probiotic can be all that you need to prevent and reverse and ulcer. This has been Rachel
