Could red palm oil cure gastritis?

Not likely: There is no established evidence that red palm oil does any good at all for any kind of gastric problem. I would not recommend it. If you have not yet been evaluated by a physician for your gastric problems, see your doctor or a gastroenterologist. Good luck.
