Beets are baked, boiled, eaten raw, squeezed juice. It can be a separate dish or included as an ingredient in others (hot red borscht and cold beetroot, salad). The concept of "gastritis" implies different conditions of the mucosa and different production of digestive juice. What specific diagnosis is indicated for a vegetable?
Beets for chronic gastritis
The chronic course of gastritis manifests itself with periodic outbreaks of symptoms such as heaviness and pain in the stomach after eating or on an empty stomach, bloating, belching, and sometimes nausea. Such reactions most often occur after alcohol, stress, inappropriate food. Can beets cause such an aggravation?
With gastritis with high acidity, a raw vegetable or its juice is quite capable of causing harm, since its dietary fibers are very coarse, it contains caustic volatile substances, splitting beets releases hydrochloric acid, which is already in excess.
The opposite effect will be baked or boiled. After heat treatment, beets retain their beneficial substances, favorably affecting the walls of the organ: inflammation is removed, damage is healed, and pathogenic microflora is destroyed. A reasonable single dose is 100g, repeated several times a week.
Exactly the same rules for its use in the erosive form of the disease. Raw beets irritate the mucous membrane, it is too aggressive an environment for surface erosion. But bake it in the oven, grate it and season with olive oil - not only tasty, but also healthy.
Beets with atrophic gastritis
Atrophic gastritis is characterized by thinning of the mucous membrane, insufficiency of secretion of gastric juice, gradual atrophy of the excretory glands. The process of digestion of food is sluggish, the motility of the organ is weakened. In this case, just right products that stimulate the production of hydrochloric acid. At the same time, the food should be crushed, delicate in relation to the mucosa.
The best that can be offered from the beet menu in the absence of aggravation is juice, half with cabbage. Drinking in the morning 30-40 minutes before meals and adhering to a special diet, you can restore the functions of the stomach, restore microflora, and get rid of dysbacteriosis.
Beets with exacerbation of gastritis
The acute manifestation of gastritis symptoms makes you take a very responsible approach to nutrition and adhere to all the recommendations of doctors. Do they have a place for beets? The first day of the acute period is generally hungry, followed by eating pureed soups, viscous cereals with the gradual inclusion of boiled vegetables, including beets, in the diet (medical dietary table No. 2).
Its frequent inclusion in the menu can cause a relaxed stool, so from time to time you can eat a small portion of a vegetable grated and sprinkled with vegetable oil.
