Garlic for Stomach Ulcer

Garlic illustration

Garlic is an herb in the onion family, grown mostly for its bulbs – the fleshy root of the plant used for cooking and medicinal purposes. Historically, garlic has been touted as a cure for fatigue, parasites, poor digestion, and respiratory ailments, and even such serious illnesses as tuberculosis and smallpox. More recent health claims have garlic as being beneficial in treating heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. It is also known to be an antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral.

Garlic to Treat Stomach Ulcer


  • Eat two cloves of raw garlic daily. To make it a little more palatable, you can eat the garlic with honey, but the garlic does need to be raw to reap the benefits.

Why It Works

Garlic contains flavonoids, compounds that help prevent the growth of a certain bacteria that causes ulcers.


Please consult your healthcare provider if you believe you have a stomach ulcer – garlic is no substitute for proper medical care. Because garlic thins the blood, it may be unsafe when taken with prescription blood-thinners. People having surgery should stop taking garlic for a few weeks before and after surgery.
