Hello from JustAnswer.
There are several supplements that may be able to help with chronic or recurrent gastritis. Herbal supplements that are most often used include peppermint, cranberry, and mastic. An omega-3 supplement may help because of some anti-inflammatory properties. A probiotic supplement may help to promote the growth of healthy germs in the gut. Foods that are high in flavenoids appear to inhibit the growth of H. pylori, so may be helpful. Common foods include apples, cranberries, celery, onion, garlic, and tea.
In someone with stubborn gastritis despite multiple medicines, these supplements are usually not miracle cures, but they may be able to augment the effect of the medicines and get better control of the gastritis.
