What Is It?
Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) is a licorice extract that does not contain the compounds responsible for causing increases in blood pressure, namely glycerrhizinic and glycerrhetinic acids.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: DGL supports the health of the digestive system and relieves the symptoms of gastrointestinal inflammation. It promotes healing by improving blood flow to the gastric lining, increasing the lifespan of intestinal cells and encouraging the production of protective substances by the cells lining the stomach. DGL may also inhibit the growth of H. pylori, a bacteria often responsible for heartburn symptoms. DGL does not reduce stomach acid secretion like most conventional heartburn and stomach treatments, which can be harmful when used regularly.
Who Should Take It?
Those looking for relief from gastrointestinal inflammation such as heartburn without the negative side effects that conventional medication can cause.
Take 1 capsule twice daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
