THAT'S THE NATURAL TICKET FOR EASING MANY GASTRIC COMPLAINTSJul 14, 2006
By Heather L. Parisi
"Robert and Heather Parisi"
FOR GASTRIC COMPLAINTS THIS IS THE TICKET
CONSIDER THIS 'DGL' FORM [WITHOUT Glycyrrhizin]:
If you are looking solely for relief from peptic ulcer symptoms and/or G.E.R.D., use DGL Licorice only, as it is safer and concentrates the factors that alleviate gastric symptoms such as indigestion and heartburn. Also in wafer form it is more effective as it combines with saliva to react positively in the gastric tract. [DGL Wafers]
DGL VS. CIMETIDINE:
Studies have shown that in comparison to 'Cimetidine', the DGL wafers worked slower but effected more of a healing action against peptic ulcers. They used 1 DGL wafer before each meal in the clinical trials.
What is Glycyrrhizin?
It is what makes Licorice incredibly beneficial and potentially dangerous. In a nutshell, it can aggravate hypertension and edema. If you are looking for gastric tract relief, forget about Glycyrrhizin.
I have used 'Now', 'Swanson', 'Enzymatic Therapy', 'Planetary' and 'Nature's Way' with roughly equal results. They all work, but the Swanson brand [when available - sometimes sold-out] usually costs less.

Low QualityJan 17, 2007
By the feral human I bought this to help my stomach make a thicker mucous lining to help heal a stomach ulcer. This product helped my ulcer pain slightly. I think it would work better if it didn't have additional ingredients that are stomach irritants. I switched to dried licorice root and it worked tremendously better. The dried root still has the DGL so I had to monitor my blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure the DGL licorice is the way to go, but I would try a different brand than this. I'm not a doctor and I'm not offering this information as medical advice.

sits like a rockSep 03, 2012
By Lisa This DGL is as far from chewable as a pill comes. This tablet sits on my tongue like a dirty rock. I bought a twistable pill crusher to try to pulverize it before chewing it. Fifteen minutes of "crushing" later more than half of it is still solid. This is the only vegan DGL chewable I could find. The flavor is not too bad. It tastes like it was licorice at one time but with a sandy feel. I've tried sucking on it also, after about fifteen minutes I end up just swallowing it. The reason I am still using it is because I am having chemo therapy treatments right now and my ND recommend the chewable to help with oral erosion. So, I'm stuck with it. If you don't need chewable vegan DGL, then do yourself a favor and try something else.
