Ulcer patients should eat more bananas, according to Indian researchers. They have successfully tested the bananas as treatment of irritation in the stomach, which is often a precursor to a full-blown ulcer.

Bananas in India have long been used to treat various diseases, including gastric ulcers.

Bananas have a soft texture that attaches itself protective over the wound. In addition, bananas neutralize digestive juices, which is helping to develop and worsen the wound.

For further effect was a series of tests using bananas to test patients treated with tablets that contained dried banana powder. Treatment with banana powder lasted for eight weeks.

A control group was given at the same time pills without banana powder. Patients from both groups had symptoms at onset of peptic ulcer.
