Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) is a safe and effective licorice extract. It is specially processed to have glycyrrhizin removed to avoid potential side effects such as elevated blood pressure. DGL supports the integrity of the natural mucus lining of the stomach and intestinal wall.* It stimulates the protective factors which guard against weaknesses in these linings.*
Help Blood Pressure
For centuries, licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) has been used in traditional medicine to aid digestion and treat stomach complaints, including heartburn and indigestion. However, licorice in its natural form contains a compound called glycyrrhizin that can raise blood pressure and cause other potentially severe side effects in some people.
DGL stands for “deglycyrrhizinated licorice”. It is an extract of licorice root that contains no glycyrrhizin, so it’s completely safe, even for people with high blood pressure. DGL decreases the symptoms associated with acid reflux from the stomach. It soothes the irritated lining of the esophagus and stomach, and also protects against ulcers by stimulating the production of mucin, the slippery protective coating of the stomach and intestines. DGL is also effective in promoting the healing of canker sores.
Scientific research has confirmed these benefits of DGL. Double-blind clinical studies also show DGL is as effective as acid-blocking drugs.
In order to be effective, DGL tablets must be chewed so the DGL mixes with saliva, which activates it in the digestive tract. Taking DGL before every meal is a safe and effective natural alternative to antacids. •DGL is specially processed to have glycyrrhizin removed to avoid potential side effects (e.g., elevated blood pressure). •Chewable delivery system is preferred because saliva enhances the effect of DGL’s natural compounds. •Soothes inflamed and damaged mucous lining, and promotes healing. •Naturally sweetened with xylitol and stevia. •As effective as antacid drugs for healing gastric ulcers and preventing their recurrence. •Inhibits the growth of H. pylori bacteria.
