Answer

See the list below:

  • Foods such as berry juice and some dairy products may have modest bacteriostatic effect on H pylori.

  • Two randomized, placebo-controlled trials evaluated the effect of probiotic food as an adjuvant to the standard triple therapy for eradication of H pylori infection in children and showed conflicting results. [35, 36]

  • In a recent prospective study in adults, addition of vitamin C to an H pylori treatment regimen of amoxicillin, metronidazole, and bismuth can significantly increase H pylori eradication rate. [37]
