Vit C and H pylori-infected patients during acid-suppression
Go figure on this one…acid suppression is known to corpus gastritis (inflammation of the main portion of stomach) from H. pylori infection worse. No big shocker since H. pylori does not do so well in an acid environment. Well, this study finds that adding Vit C inhibits this inflammation. So we have two options here–make Vit C supplementation an integral part of any H. pylori therapy, or run some studies on the effect of only high dose Vit C of H. pylori infection. I just cannot stress how important stomach acid is to our health, and acid suppression without thought to the physiological consequences is, to me, malpractice.
