Try DGL Licorice for Digestion Support
Swanson Health • June 17, 2012

Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (typically referred to as DGL licorice as it’s so hard to pronounce) is great for soothing the stomach, but can also have benefits for digestion in general. DGL is typically taken because it helps to coat the lining of the stomach, esophagus, and intestinal tract, but that can also indirectly translate to other aspects of digestion.

When people get upset stomachs, they commonly take things to deal with that upset stomach like antacids that can make it tougher to digest that last bit of food as it neutralizes the remaining stomach acid in the stomach… this can, in turn, cause gas and other indigestion issues. If those people took a DGL instead of an acid neutralizer, they would not only help soothe the stomach, but would leave the stomach acid to finish digesting the food and would also get the added benefits of the DGL for the entire digestive tract.
