Is The Gastric Problems? Trying This Food to Heal

Kitchen Hacks

Common gastric conditions include gas pain and bloating, indigestion and ulcers, which affect 25 million Americans annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition to medical treatments, when necessary, certain foods may help manage your symptoms. If your symptoms are severe or long-lasting, seek medical guidance.

1. Yoghurt

Yogurt and kefir are cultured dairy products that contain valuable amounts of calcium, protein and beneficial bacterial known as probiotics. Although research is ongoing, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, probiotics may help restore balance in your intestinal tract and alleviate the effects of harmful bacteria, including H. pylori, which causes ulcers. Probiotics may also help ease chronic stomach inflammation, abdominal cramps associated with irritable bowel syndrome, and diarrhea.

2. Rice

Rice is a complex carbohydrate that provides glucose, your body's main dietary source of energy. Although all whole grains provide rich amounts of nutrients and fiber, rice is the only grain that does not stimulate gas production in the digestive tract, according to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse. If you are prone to gas, gas pain or bloating, replace other grains with brown, basmati or wild rice. 

3. Soy Products

Soy is a protein-rich legume used in a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods. Many people lack the enzyme necessary to digest lactose, a sugar that occurs naturally in cow's milk, according to the NDDIC. If you are among them, you may experience gas, bloating and stomach pain after consuming milk, cheese or other dairy-based foods. Soy-based milk, yogurt and cheese provide useful nondairy alternatives, many of which are fortified with calcium. Whole soybeans and tofu, which is soybean curd, also contain protein and calcium.
