DGL Licorice Chewable tablets
Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) is a safe and effective licorice extract. It is specially processed to have glycyrrhizin removed to avoid potential side effects such as elevated blood pressure. DGL improves the integrity of the natural mucus lining of the stomach and intestinal wall. It stimulates the protective factors which guard against weaknesses in these linings.
Healthy Stomach Function
A balance of adequate acid and protective lining in the stomach is needed to ensure comfortable, easy digestion. Gastric acid is secreted to kill bacteria and help break down food before it passes into the small intestine, where nutrient absorption occurs. Gastric acid is a highly effective digestant because it is extremely corrosive. The pH of gastric acid (~1.7) is strong enough to eat through the skin. The stomach is lined with mucosal cells that secrete a protective layer of mucin. Usually, this natural protection is effective in guarding the stomach wall against acid damage. If there is an imbalance between acid secretion and mucosal protection, acids can begin to irritate the stomach wall. The presence of harmful intestinal bacteria, such as Helicobacter pylori, can also disrupt this balance. Maintaining normal acidity and supporting the stomach’s natural protective mechanisms are therefore essential for normal stomach function and comfort.
