Foods for Managing Symptoms

Some foods are important to check and lessen symptoms of gastritis. These foods are crucial for you to get relief from the symptoms. Let’s see the type and name of some foods and know why these are important for you.


Fiber regulates your bowel movement. Fiber is the fuel the colon cells use to keep them healthy.[2] Seeds, grains, and legumes are high in fiber.


Lean proteins repair the gut wall and treat digestive issues like leaky gut syndrome which can trigger inflammation. Grass-fed meat, wild-caught fish, cage free eggs are the source of protein helping you to manage your gastritis symptoms.[3]

Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory. These are beneficial for gastritis. Salmon and sardines are the source of fatty acids.[4]


Vegetables are low in fat and sugar. These help reducing stomach acid. Green beans, broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, leafy greens, potatoes are the good options. Try to keep one or two of these everyday alternatively on your dinner plate. [5]


Rice provides glucose, main dietary source of energy for your body. According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, rice is the only grain that does not stimulate gas production in digestive track.[6]


Fruits are an important source of antioxidants. ‘Fiber-rich fruits and vegetables may expedite recovery from stomach ulcers, states the University of Maryland Medical Center, which reduce your risk for developing one in the first place.’ Apples, pears, artichokes, peas are good examples.[7]


You can get natural anti-inflammatory properties in ginger. It can heal heartburn and other gastrointestinal problems.[8]


Raw and cooked garlic is considered as the natural remedy for GI troubles. It is a natural anti-inflammatory. It also has some antibiotic properties. Some experts believe that raw garlic might even be able to help reduce H. pylori bacteria and inhibit the growth of other harmful bacteria in the microbiome.[9]

Soy Products

Many people can’t tolerate lactose. Lactose intolerance means lacking in an enzyme to digest lactose, a sugar in cow’s milk. In this case, you can choose soy based milk. Soy protein contains all the essential amino acids that your body needs.[10]


According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, probiotics may help restore balance in our intestinal tract and alleviate the affects of harmful bacteria. These may also help to reduce chronic stomach inflammation, abdominal cramps associated with irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhea.  Yogurt and kefir are the best sources of probiotics. These also contain protein and calcium.[11]

Processed foods are rich in acid generating foods like refined sugar, flour, preservatives. These increase the acid level in the body. [13]


Chocolate can trigger digestive symptoms like heartburn and upset stomach.[14]

Raw Vegetables

Raw vegetables can contain a lot of insoluble fiber that, like corn, can cause bloating, gas, diarrhea, and cramps when they pass through your system undigested.[15]

Carbonated drinks increase pressure level within the stomach resulting an increased production of gastric acids. Avoid these drink and drink more pure water.[16]


Alcohol increases gastric acid. It also dehydrates the body. Try to avoid alcohol while you are suffering with gastritis.[17]

Dairy Products

Because of lactose, the sugar found in milk, dairy products are hard to digest resulting gas and bloating. So, try to avoid dairy products. It is good for you to have hard cheese and yogurt as these are llactose-free[18]
