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.
How Does DGL Work?
The proposed mechanism of DGL is that it stimulates and/or accelerates the protective factors which protect against ulcer formation. This mechanism of action is much different than antacids and drugs like Tagamet, Zantac, Pepcid, Prevacid, and Prilosec which work by neutralizing or suppressing gastric acid. An obvious question related to DGL is “Does DGL have any effect on Heliobacter pylori?” The answer appears to be yes as DGL is composed of several flavonoids which have been shown to inhibit H. pylori.
