Both SB and SE inhibited 45% and 60% of ulcers formation induced by swim stress respectively. Gastroprotection has been elucidated to be due to inhibition of (a) upregulated H, K-ATPase activity that induced ulcer condition; (b) lipid peroxidation and (c) altered antioxidant enzyme levels. The data highlighted the importance of vitamin Bin protecting the gut against gastric ulcerations and suggested that bothbiomass andextract contain bioavailable B.based product/food can be used as alternatives to gastroprotective agents that are known to cause acidity themselves upon long term use.
