H pylori is a bacterium that infects the lining of the stomach often leading to gastritis, duodenitis, peptic ulcers, and sometimes cancer. The bacterium releases a protein called VacA that causes gastritis and ulceration; some sources state that only 50% of the strains of H pylori create this protein. Research is showing that specific polyphenols block the effects of VacA and may be useful in preventing inflammation caused by the bacterium.
