Aug 13, 2010

  The bacterium Helicobacter pylorus (H. pylori) causes gastritis, stomach ulcers, and digestive tract cancer. Treating H. pylori successfully can prevent and treat these disorders but resistance to antibiotics is increasing. In laboratory studies Black Seed inhibits H. Pylori.

     Eighty-eight adults with H. pylori infection who suffered with gastritis were treated with either triple therapy (clarithromycin, amoxicillin, omeprazole) or 3 different doses (1g, 2g, 3g) of Black Seed plus omeprazole.

     Triple therapy eradicated H. pylori in 83% of treated patients, I gram of Black Seed eradicated infection in 48%, 2 grams eradicated infection in 67% and 3 grams eradicated infection in 48% of treated patients. Dyspepsia symptoms improved in all successfully treated patients to a similar extent. The study is published in the July-September issue of the Saudi Journal of Gastroenterology.
