Broccoli sprouts are the earliest edible product of a broccoli plant before it produces the more familiar stalks and florets that we usually think of as broccoli. The sprouts contain a compound called sulforaphane that can help to protect your stomach against gastritis caused by either H. pylori bacteria or over-use of non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If left uncontrolled, the inflammation associated with gastritis can result in ulcers or other serious problems. Sulforaphane can reduce the amount of oxidative stress on your stomach lining, resulting in a reduction in inflammation.
