Licorice Instead of Antacids?

According to a recent study doctors and alternative health care practitioners
recommend DGL (deglycyrrhizinated licorice) for GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux
Disorder). DGL is a form of licorice root where the glycyrrhizin component has
been removed. Glycyrrhizin, which gives licorice its sweetness can cause side
effects when taken in large amounts especially in those with high blood pressure.
This unique licorice contains only biologically active flavonoids that target the GI
tract. DGL soothes the stomach and esophagus thus preventing food and gastric
acid from heading back up to the throat. So, if you are experience occasional
symptoms of GERD and looking for another possibility to traditional antacids, DGL
may be something to consider as you approach another phase of the digestive
journey.
