2 – Cabbage juice for ulcers
Cabbage juice was first shown in a small 1949 study to be effective in the treatment of peptic ulcers. The average healing time for six patients with gastric ulcer treated with cabbage juice was only 7.3 days. Compared to 42 days for patients treated by standard therapy.
Other research has confirmed that fresh cabbage juice is effective for treating peptic ulcers. The anti-ulcer component of cabbage was at first referred to as “vitamin U” but was later identified as glutamine. Glutamine is an amino acid important for the growth and regeneration of cells lining the gastrointestinal tract.
