Benefits at a Glance
Helps prevent ulcers and can cure you of heartburn or GERD
Supports the body's natural defense mechanisms
Herbal support for gastrointestinal tract
This synergistic combination of deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) and herbal extracts provides nutritional support to the gastrointestinal tract. DGL Plus®supports the body's natural defense mechanisms by stimulating the mass, quality, and production of mucous, a major component of the stomach's protective lining. Licorice in its deglycyrrhizinated form is side-effect free.
DGL Plus® offers a safe and natural way to nutritionally support a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
This product increases the production of mucus in the digestive tract. This can have a protective effect on the GI mucosa while healing. It can help prevent ulcers and offer good short term protection to the esophagus when tapering off acid suppressing medications.
Many patients who have heartburn, peptic ulcer disease, or gastritis find great relief from DGL. There was a study published in the British Medical Journal comparing an over-the-counter medication for peptic ulcer disease and DGL for 82 patients who had endoscopically healed peptic ulcer. Patients were given two tablets of DGL twice daily compared to a regular dosage of the over-the-counter medication for peptic ulcer disease. After two years on this regimen, the recurrence rate for gastric ulcers for the two groups was relatively similar. This study demonstrates DGL as an effective potential alternative to taking over-the-counter stomach ulcer medications if you have any concerns about these medications.*
