Three fruits that hurt the stomach

01 Kiwifruit is laxative but heartburn. Kiwifruit is rich in vitamin C and is known as the "King of Fruits". However, Zhu Xinxiang, deputy director of internal medicine of Zhongda Hospital Affiliated to Southeast University, reminds us that kiwifruit is cold, overeating damages the Yang Qi of the spleen and stomach, and can cause abdominal pain and diarrhea.
02 Fresh jujube is delicious, but the skin of jujube sticks to the stomach. Winter jujube is known as a natural "vitamin pill". Wang Xingguo, director of Nutrition Department of Dalian Central Hospital, Liaoning Province, reminds us that fresh jujube should not be eaten too much, otherwise it will hurt the stomach and intestines. Gill is due to the high dietary fiber content of jujube, a large amount of intake will stimulate the intestines and stomach, resulting in gastrointestinal discomfort. Dietary fiber is mostly found in the jujube skin, while the jujube skin is thin and hard, with sharp edges. If the gastric mucosa happens to have inflammation or ulcer, it will aggravate pain and discomfort.
03 Hawthorn appetizer is easy to cause stones. Many people think Hawthorn appetizer is sweet and sour, so they will eat a lot carelessly. But Li Bin, deputy director of digestive medicine of the Fourth Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University, suggested that people with poor spleen and stomach eat less hawthorn, and overeating Hawthorn may lead to stomach stones. Because of the high content of pectin and tannic acid in hawthorn, it is easy to coagulate into water-insoluble precipitation after exposure to gastric acid, and form gastric stones with food residues, which can cause gastric ulcer, gastric bleeding, and even necrosis and perforation of gastric wall. But boiling hawthorn and eating it will reduce the effect of tannic acid.
