In traditional use, Licorice has been used more broadly for hormonal issues, gut and throat issues, respiratory support, and fatigue. However, Licorice shines in particular for soothing inflammation in the digestive tract and suppressing acid.

DGL means that the glycyrrhizin has been removed, which makes it safe to consume. Scientific investigation into the mechanism of DGL shows that it is an antispasmodic (i.e, helps to relax the intestinal wall) to provide relief of indigestion symptoms, while it also repairs the mucosal lining of the digestive tract to promote its overall integrity.
