Fights inflammation and viral, bacterial and parasitic infection. Beneficial for allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue, depression, emphysema, infection, glandular functions, inflammatory bowel disorders, premenstrual syndrome, menopausal symptoms and upper respiratory infections. The deglycyrrhised form of licorice (DGL ) is clinically proven to treat ulcers in the whole of the gastrointestinal tract particularly the upper half. This is due to its ability to stimulate the normal defence mechanisms that prevent ulcer formation. DGL improves the integrity of the mucosal surfaces of the intestinal cells as well as improving the supply to them. DGL also soothes the mucosal cells of the gastrointestinal tract helping to calm inflammatory bowel concerns.
