DGL is deglycerrhizinated licorice, a supplement that supports a healthy digestive system and relieves the symptoms of ulcers. Ulcers occur because of a loss of the integrity of the intestinal lining. Most drugs that are used to treat ulcers do not address this underlying cause, and some are associated with negative side effects. DGL works by stimulating defense mechanisms to prevent ulcer formation, rather than simply inhibiting the release of stomach acid.
Clinical trials have found that DGL is an effective supplement for fighting ulcers. DGL helps to enhance the quality and quantity of protective substances lining the intestinal tract. It increases the life span of intestinal cells, and improves the blood supply to the intestinal lining. The flavonoids found in DGL also help to inhibit the growth of Helicobacter pylori, which is often a root cause of ulcers.
While licorice has been associated with effects on the adrenal glands and blood pressure, deglycerrhizinated licorice benefits the health of the digestive system without these other effects. It is a safe and effective supplement that promotes true healing from peptic ulcers.
