Licorice root has been used worldwide for over 4000 years as a flavor and for medicinal purposes. Licorice root contains hundreds of beneficial constituents, including the root’s primary bioactive compound glycyrrhizin.
Responsible for the sweetness of licorice root, glycyrrhizin taken in large amounts or long-term has been found to contribute to unwanted side effects and may pose a significant health risk in people that have developed an increased glycyrrhizin sensitivity due to certain lifestyle or health factors. Removing the glycyrrhizin from licorice results in a deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), and this form provides the benefits of licorice root in a popular form for those who want to support the health of the gastrointestinal mucosal lining without the presence of glycyrrhizin.
DGL Licorice Complete is formulated with deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) and a synergistic soothing blend of fennel seed, marshmallow root and aloe vera to support overall gastrointestinal lining health. Our plant-based product is designed to support normal intestinal mucous production and gastrointestinal tissue for a healthy mucosal and digestive lining.
