Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

H. pylori infection occurs when a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori infects your stomach or the first part of your small intestine. The bacteria is spread person to person through direct contact with saliva or fecal matter. H. pylori can also be spread through untreated water. Antibiotics are almost always used for treatment as this can be a serious infection.

Your doctor may recommend that you undergo testing for H. pylori several weeks after your treatment. A follow-up breath or stool test may confirm that the H. pylori bacterium is no longer present in your body and treatment was successful.

Or follow-up testing may show that treatment was unsuccessful. In that case, you may undergo treatment again, receiving a different combination of antibiotic medications.

Did you have any particular supplement in mind?
