DGL for Barrett’s Esophagus Studies have shown that DGL may increase mucous production and accelerate the healing of duodenal and gastric ulcers. It has also been proven effective in the treatment of chronic stomach discomfort and protect the stomach from NSAIDs (such as aspirin). In Barrett’s esophagus, due to stress on the tissue, normal epithelial cells are replaced by cells similar to those lining the intestinal tract. Since licorice targets these cells specifically, it has strong potential to help heal tissue damage related to Barrett’s esophagus.DGL for Acid Reflux Acid reflux is a common condition that occurs when stomach acid leaks through the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The rise of acid can cause a burning sensation in the chest or throat, and create trouble swallowing. Specific foods can increase acid and decrease the function of the LES. Excess acid irritates esophageal membranes and leads to more serious complications and cell damage. Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) decreases occurrence of reflux and can soothe mucus membranes.
