Cabbage Juice Heals Stomach Ulcers and Sores (Recipe)

Peptic ulcers are open sores on the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. About 11-14% of all men and 8-11% of all women deal with peptic ulcers. Here are some of the most common symptoms:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Heartburn and chest pain
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Indigestion
  • Bleeding, and dark, almost black, stool
  • Belching

Common risk factors and causes of peptic ulcers

  •  Helicobacter pylori infection
  •  NSAIDs
  •  Smoking
  •  Alcohol
  •  Unhealthy diet (spicy and fried food)
  •  Radiotherapy

H.pylori infection causes 90% of all duodenal ulcers and about 80% of stomach ulcers.

Cabbage juice is an effective remedy for stomach ulcers. In 1949, Garnett Cheney, San Francisco-based doctor, published an article titled, “Rapid Healing of Peptic Ulcers in Patients Receiving Fresh Cabbage Juice.”

The doctor conducted a study involving thirteen participants aged between 26 and 77. They were dealing with gut ulcers of different sizes. Participants followed a specific diet, and had a liter of green cabbage juice every day (5x200ml). They also used salt, pepper and tomato juice.

The results showed that 11 out of 13 subjects had no craters after 6-9 days

Patients with large craters had better results in 14 days, and a patient with a large duodenal ulcer and cap deformity had an improvement in 23 days.

The average healing time was 9 days.

Cabbage juice has an anti-ulcer factor called vitamin U. Today, it’s also known as S-methylmethionine. It improves the production of mucin, the primary component of mucus which protects your esophagus, stomach and guts, and also prevents ulcers. It protects cells and improves immune response.

Vitamin U accelerates the healing of wounds and inhibits the formation of adipocytes on a molecular level. The anti-ulcer factor also treats depression, and provides antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antifibrotic effect.

Cabbage juice is also packed with sulforaphane, a strong bactericide that destroys H.pylori and prevents the formation of peptic ulcers.

This juice contains glutamic acid that acts as a neurotransmitter of nerve impulses engaged in learning and memory. The lack of glutamic acid causes leaky gut syndrome and affects immunity.

Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals and prevents ulcers.

A glass of cabbage juice is rich in vitamin A, C, E and K, phosphorus, iodine, B vitamins, phytonutrients, enzymes, calcium, iron, potassium, glutamine, and antioxidant compounds.
