DGL 180 chewable 180 tabs | Bioclinic Naturals
Deglycyrrhizinated licorice, or DGL, has been used clinically for decades, primarily for the treatment of peptic ulcers.1 Licorice has been shown to inhibit several inflammatory enzymes, including both cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), decreasing the production of several potent inflammatory compounds, including prostaglandin E2, thromboxane B2, and leukotriene B4. Importantly, this inhibition is not due to glycyrrhizic acid, the component of licorice which has been removed in DGL, and which is associated with mineralocorticoid excess and hypertension.2 Another component of licorice, glabridin, has been shown to prevent lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induced production of inflammatory compounds, including nitric oxide and interleukin-1 beta, whereas glycyrrhizic acid has no effect.*
Clinically, DGL has been shown to have comparable efficacy to cimetidine for both the healing and prevention of ulcer recurrences.3 Additionally, extracts of licorice have been shown to inhibit the adhesion of H. pylori to gastric mucosa, as well as the growth of antibiotic resistant strains, suggesting multiple mechanisms of action for its anti-ulcer benefit.4,5 The use of chewable tablets appears necessary for DGL’s efficacy, as it allows for distribution and absorption by the gastric mucosa.3*
DGL chewable tablets is the form associated with the greatest clinical efficacy, as it allows for licorice to be released in the stomach and dispersed/absorbed by the gastric mucosa*
Provides 400 mg DGL per tablet, the clinically effective dosage*
Deglycyrrhizination prevents adverse effects associated with licorice consumption*
Pleasant tasting tablets for better compliance*
Nearly all contraindications to DGL are due to pseudohyperaldosteronism or mineralocorticoid excess, effects which appear to be primarily due to glycyrrhizic acid. Although there are no apparent contraindications for DGL, patients with hypertension, congestive heart failure and hypokalemia should be monitored carefully. The safety of DGL in pregnancy and breastfeeding is unknown and should be used with caution. Consult a health care professional if you experience persistent stomach or gastrointestinal upset. Keep out of reach of children.*
No known drug interactions. Licorice influences the activity of several cytochrome enzymes, and reduces warfarin activity in animal models, likely due to glycyrrhizic acid activity. Thus DGL use should be carefully monitored in these patients.*

DGL 180 chewable 180 tabs | Bioclinic Naturals
DGL supports the stomach lining by stimulating mucous formation and secretion, offering almost immediate occasional relief for stomach and digestive tract discomfort. It is specially processed to have glycyrrhizin removed to avoid potential side effects such as elevated blood pressure. The chewable delivery system is preferred because saliva enhances the effect of DGL’s natural compounds.* Bioclinic NaturalsTM products are guaranteed to meet or exceed Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) of the Canadian Government and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) regulations of Australia—among the world’s highest standards for natural products.
Suggested Usage: Chew 1 tablet per day 20 minutes before each meal or as directed by a health care professional. Consult a health care professional for use beyond 16 weeks.
