In recent years, infection of the stomach with the organism Helicobacter Pylori has been found to be the main cause of gastric ulcers, one of the common ailments afflicting humans. Excessive acid secretion in the stomach, reduction in gastric mucosal blood flow, constant intake of non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), ethanol, smoking, stress etc. are also considered responsible for ulcer formation. The prevalent notion among sections of population in this country and perhaps in others… Expand

Prevalence of H. pylori infection is similar in duodenal and gastric ulcers and intake of spicy food is a significant risk factor in patients with benign peptic ulcer disease. Expand
Spices, herbal xenobiotics and the stomach: friends or foes?
TLDR
It has indeed been shown that certain spices do possess remarkable anti-ulcer properties mediated by antisecretory, cytoprotective, antioxidant, and anti-Helicobacter pylori effects and mechanisms regulated by nitric oxide, prostaglandins, non-protein sulfhydryl molecules and epidermal growth factor expression.

Regional variations in Helicobacter pylori infection, gastric atrophy and gastric cancer risk: The ENIGMA study in Chile
TLDR
The prevalence of H. pylori infection and its virulence factors was similar in the high and the low risk area, but atrophy was more common and occurred at younger ages in the higher risk area. Expand
Phytochemistry and gastrointestinal benefits of the medicinal spice, Capsicum annuum L. (Chilli): a review
TLDR
The phytochemistry and various gastrointestinal benefits of chilli and its various active constituents play numerous beneficial roles in various gastrointestinal disorders such as stimulation of digestion and gastromucosal defense, reduction of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms and inhibition of gastrointestinal pathogens, ulceration and cancers. Expand
Role of Capsaicin in Cancer Prevention
TLDR
Overall findings on capsaicin suggest that Capsaicin is a promising agent for the treatment of various types of cancer that nonetheless requires further clinical studies. Expand
Vanillyl nonanoate protects rat gastric mucosa from ethanol-induced injury through a mechanism involving calcitonin gene-related peptide.
TLDR
The results suggested that vanillyl nonanoate was able to protect the gastric mucosa against ethanol-induced Gastric mucosal injury and the underlying mechanism is related to stimulation of CGRP release and subsequent suppression of ethanol- induced inflammatory reaction, cellular apoptosis and oxidative stress. Expand

Effect of capsaicin and chilli on ethanol induced gastric mucosal injury in the rat.
TLDR
increased gastric mucus production may be one mechanism by which capsaicin and chilli exert their gastroprotective effect although an alternative explanation is that the reduction in mucosal mucus depletion is secondary to the protective effect of capsaicIn and Chilli. Expand

TLDR
In humans, although recent studies provide evidence in favor of a beneficial effect of capsaicin on the gastric mucosa, an exact concentration-related assessment of the effect of the agent is still lacking. Expand

TLDR
Because gastric cancer is unusual in the United States, screening and treatment of H. pylori in the general population are unwarranted; Chemoprevention in high-risk populations, however, could potentially be used to decrease risk for adenocarcinomas distal to the cardia. Expand
