How it works
When you are experiencing the discomfort of ulcers or stomach upset, antacids can temporarily inhibit the production of stomach acid, which can ease the burning of sensitive mucous membranes. But this only addresses the symptoms.
Deglycyrrhizinated licorice root extract (DGL) offers a more rational approach by actually promoting healing. Licorice contains antioxidant flavonoids that help heal digestive tract cells. It supports stomach cells that produce mucin to protect the lining of the stomach. It also stimulates the growth of new mucosal cells. The flavonoids in DGL also inhibit a bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, that grows in the stomach and is believed to play a role in causing some stomach ulcers and chronic gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining).
