Natural Factors DGL Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice Root Extract, 90 tablets
DGL stimulates and/or accelerates the factors
that protect against ulcer including increasing the production of mucin –
the protective coating in the stomach and intestines.
Numerous studies over the years have found DGL to be an effective anti-ulcer compound. In several head to head comparison studies, DGL has been shown to be more effective than either Tagamet, Zantac or antacids in both short-term treatment and maintenance therapy of gastric and duodenal ulcers.
DGL is composed of several flavonoids that have been shown to inhibit H. pylori.

- As DGL has been shown to reduce the gastric bleeding caused by aspirin, DGL is strongly indicated for the prevention of gastric ulcers in patients requiring long-term treatment with ulcer-causing drugs, such as aspirin, other NSAIDs (e.g., ibuprofen, piroxicam, indomethacin, and dicofenac), and corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone).
