  1. The infection that more than half of us have, but from which only 20% will suffer with pain, gastritis and ulcers

    Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacterium that is estimated to already infect over 50% of the world’s population. Most commonly (in over 80% of cases) there are no symptoms of infection. This bacterium is stable in the strongly acid environment of the stomach because H. pylori is able to raise the pH in a mini-environment around itself.

    At the same time, H. pylori reduces plasma levels of certain hormones that affect appetite and trigger the release of inflammatory molecules into the circulation. These effects combine to cause the digestive symptoms commonly associated with H. pylori, and can trigger other inflammatory processes in the body like arteriosclerosis.
