In addition to its abundant vitamin C content, the lemon also contains many compounds such as polyphenols, naringenin, hesperidin, diosmin, eriositrin, naringin and d-limonene. From the fact that there is, lemon fruit can overcome some specific digestive problems, but what about ulcer disease?

Actually, there is no such thing as ulcer disease, gastritis commonly used as a word to express complaints that occur in the digestive tract. So ulcer is not a disease, but a symptom or a sign of certain diseases in the digestive, especially the stomach because the nausea caused by ulcer is closely related to the organ of the stomach.

There are many diseases that cause stomach ulcers, especially stomach acid or acid reflux. In addition to stomach acid, other causes of gastritis such as inflammation of the stomach, intestines and inflammation of the esophagus. Stomach infections can also be the cause of the appearance of ulcers although rarely occurs.

The process of the ulcer.

Common and often occurring ulcers are caused by stomach acid. Because of some things, the production of stomach acid becomes excessive and cause irritation to the mucous membranes in the stomach. Basically stomach acid is needed to digest food, but if the condition of stomach acid excess will damage the surface of the stomach itself.

Stomach surface that has been irritated and exposed to excess stomach acid in the next condition will cause a sense of pain and sensual nausea. Sensation of nausea that appears is a natural response of the digestive organs to remove objects or substances in the form of excess stomach acid which when it is considered not good for stomach conditions.

How lemon fruit can help treat ulcers.

The content of vitamin C in lemon fruit is also known as ascorbic acid. In this section Vitamin C in lemons is NOT THE SAME with vitamin C content in the daily pack or vitamin beverage. In a kind of daily beverage or vitamin product, most of its vitamin C is citric acid (man-made) and not acrobatic acid (native to fruit).

The results of research published in the scientific journal Digestive Diseases and Sciences, ascorbic acid in lemon has the ability to heal wounds caused by inflammation and contain substances fitronutrien that can fight the bacteria H. pylori. These bacteria can cause infection of the gastric mucosal wall.

From the research turned out ascorbic acid on lemon fruit has a unique thing. The sour taste of the lemon fruit does not become acidic when consumed, but becomes an alkaline former. This can be seen from the many articles about making alkaline water to balance the body's pH from water and lemon-based ingredients. Alkaline fruit base formers occur because the residue from the digestive process of lemon water helps to remove hydrogen ions and then gives the alkaline effect on the body.

From here began to look how lemon fruit can help treat ulcers. The ulcer is caused by excessive stomach acid causing irritation and inflammation of the stomach wall, while the ascorbic acid content of lemon has the ability to heal the wounds inflamed by inflammation. Water from lemon fruit when entering into the body does not turn into an acidic substance, but becomes a base former that can suppress the amount of excess stomach acid.

Some articles suggest that drinking lemon juice before eating to reduce the nausea caused by stomach acid. It should be known that the nausea is a sign of an ulcer that has not reached a chronic condition, because the initial condition of the ulcer is a sick feeling due to high stomach acid. If this condition is left untreated, a slight irritation of the stomach will become a wound that causes a chronic gastritis.


Lemon juice can be a therapy to reduce nausea due to stomach acid and help cure irritation if the condition is still in the early stages of symptoms where the feeling of nausea is more often felt than pain.

If you want to use lemon juice for ulcer therapy, it is better to consult your doctor first whether the cause of your ulcer because of excessive stomach acid or any other cause.

If the condition of chronic ulcer disease where the pain more often than nausea, do not try any action therapy, but immediately get medical treatment because chronic gastritis has a list of adverse effects are not small.
