I like to have pickles in my diet. Some people are saying that pickles are not so good for health as they can cause some ulcers. Some are telling that pickles are very good for digestion of food. So actually I'm confused. Is pickle healthy to have on a daily basis?

I think it helps in digestion because it is kind of sour, but on a daily basis I think you will become acidic so I rather not prefer you to eat it daily.

Pickles are very good for digestion. Especially lime pickle.
But it cannot be considered as a healthy food in your daily diet. As what you heard before too much consumption of pickles may lead to mouth ulcers or stomach ulcers. Moreover, the high salt content in pickles may increase your blood pressure levels. Thus, in turn, results in many health issues including renal problems.
So avoid daily consumption of these kinds of the salty menu for your better health. Even if you like pickles you should think of your body too.

I am also a pickle lover. But not addicted.

South Indian and North Indian Pickles have differed from its tastes, colour, and shelf life. Good but, use it judiciously. I like it. Especially Andhra Mango Pickle

Pickles are good for digestion after a heavy meal. Especially after Indian foods like Biriyani, Paratha etc. But pickles should be home-made. Preservatives used in commercially sold pickles are not so good for health.
