DGL, or deglycyrrhized licorice, is a form of licorice root. The deglycyrrhized form of licorice allows for higher dosing of supportive flavonoids, which helps maintain a healthy mucosal barrier in the stomach and intestines.
- Supports Gastrointestinal Health
- Helps Maintain a Healthy Mucosal Surface in the Stomach
- Promotes a Healthy Esophageal Lining
Historically used to support the gastric mucosa, studies have shown glycyrrhetic acid helps maintain high levels of prostaglandins in the stomach by blocking the activity of two enzymes involved in the metabolism of prostaglandins E and F2-alpha, resulting in extra protection for the gastric mucosa.
Marshmallow root is a traditional demulcent (soothing) herb with a long history of use for coating the gastric lining. Marshmallow root contains mucilage polysaccharides, which swell when mixed with liquid, providing a soothing property to mucous membranes.
Aloe Vera Concentrate
Aloe vera, like marshmallow root and slippery elm bark, is a demulcent that has been used throughout history, and has been shown to maintain normal inflammatory balance.
Slippery Elm Bark
Slippery elm bark is a traditional demulcent that has been used for centuries. Slippery elm bark is rich in mucilage which helps maintain normal inflammatory balance.
Chew 1-2 tablets per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
DGL, or deglycyrrhizinated licorice, is a form of licorice root that has been specially processed to contain only biologically active flavonoids, without glycyrrhizin. The deglycyrrhized form of licorice allows for higher dosing of supportive flavonoids, which helps maintain a healthy mucosal surface in the stomach. Traditionally used to support GI-related complaints, research has shown DGL to promote bacterial balance and promotes a healthy esophageal lining. Along with DGL, this tablet also contains aloe vera, slippery elm bark and marshmallow root, all used to soothe the GI tract.
