Symptoms of gastric ulcer in mice were alleviated after continuous intake of Euglena for 2 weeks

Acute gastric ulcer was induced in mice by swimming stress after feeding a diet containing an Euglena powder for 2 weeks, and the extent of gastric ulcer was investigated. A significant decrease in the area of gastric ulcer was observed in the mice that had been fed the Euglena-containing diet, suggesting that the Euglena powder can alleviate the symptoms of gastric ulcer.
What is gastric ulcer?

Gastric ulcer is one of the modern diseases, in which the gastric mucosa is damaged by gastric acid, causing pain and bleeding. The main symptoms of gastric ulcer include a feeling of fullness, nausea, vomiting and anorexia. Gastric ulcer can be classified into acute and chronic. Acute gastric ulcer is caused by stress and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin-type drugs) and is characterized by the appearance of many small ulcers. In contrast, chronic gastric ulcer is mainly caused by Helicobacter pylori and is characterized by the formation of a large, circular ulcerated lesion.
