DGL 400 mg - 100 Lozenges
De-Glycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) Extract from NOW is a tasty chewable lozenge that delivers 400 mg of Licorice per lozenge. Licorice has a long history of use and is one of the most widely known medicinal herbs today. It has been extensively researched for its ability to support healthy digestive function. De-Glycyrrhizinated Licorice is a milder form of Licorice necessary for a chewable lozenge. This fom of licorice will not raise your blood pressure.

DGL licorice stimulates the body to increase the number of mucus-secreting cells in the digestive tract, improves the quality of mucus, lengthens intestinal cell life and enhances microcirculation in the gastrointestinal lining.  That is how it ultimately helps prevent ulcers and literally cures you of heartburn or GERD  There are many of antacids on the market today that will help you cope with your symptoms, but they do this by blocking stomach acid.  Unfortunately, this will ultimately make the problem worse, as you desperately need acid for proper digestion. 

If you take pharmaceutical antacids for a long time, once you stop, your stomach will overcompensate for what you have lost, making even more acid.  No matter how much an antacid eases your discomfort, it certainly isn’t healing the problem like DGL will.  Interestingly, one study found that 350 mg of chewable DGL taken along with aspirin reduced the occurrence of aspirin-induced gastrointestinal bleeding.  Other studies have actually shown DGL to be as effective as the pharmaceuticals Tagamet and Zantac for the treatment of peptic ulcers.
