Reduces stomach irritation and helps to heal gastric ulcers

Besides regulating the survival, growth and inflammation of the intestinal surface, GG probiotic also protects the stomach lining.

It enhances the ability of the stomach lining to heal under stress from medication, alcohol or infection.

It also inhibits the growth of Helicobacter pylori, the bacterium which causes stomach ulceration and cancer.

A clinical trial found that regular consumption of GG probiiotic protected the stomach lining from damage by a common painkiller called indomethacin.

Researchers in the University of Hong Kong confirmed that this probiotic strain improved healing of gastric ulcers as well as protected the stomach lining from developing ulcers due to alcohol.
