Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza Glabra)
A Sweet Spice Made Sweeter
as a spice because of its sweet taste, licorice has long been used in
Egypt, Greece and China for its health benefits. Our ancestors
discovered that licorice can soothe stomach pain, and the plant was
often used for gastritis. There is one problem with licorice: the root
affects the function of the adrenal glands and can cause increased blood
pressure and water retention after prolonged use. There is, however, a
simple solution to this problem: deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), an
extract of licorice that contains no glycerrhizinic or glycerrhetinic
acids responsible for unwanted effects. DGL has many benefits,
including antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and curative
activity for peptic ulcers.
recently, medical treatment of peptic ulcers focused on reducing
gastric acidity with antacids and/or drugs that block stomach acid
secretions. With the recent discovery of Helicobacter pylori bacteria
as the true cause of the overwhelming majority of peptic ulcers,
powerful antibiotics have been added to the cocktail. Though effective
in relieving symptoms, these treatments can be expensive, carry some
risk of toxicity, disrupt normal digestive processes, and alter the
structure and function of the cells that line the digestive tract.
(Ranitidine) and Tagamet® (Cimetidine) are examples of histamine
receptor antagonists. These drugs act to block the action of histamine
on the secretion of stomach acid. Histamine normally acts to stimulate
the secretion of stomach acid by gastric cells. By blocking this effect
of histamine, stomach acid output is greatly reduced.
Effectiveness and Safety of Conventional Treatments
they are effective in providing symptomatic relief, Zantac®, Tagamet®,
and other H2 receptor antagonists have the highest recurrence rate among
anti-ulcer treatments. In addition, both drugs are associated with
numerous side effects. Because H2-receptor antagonists block the vital
bodily function involved in digestion, namely secreting stomach acids,
digestive disturbances are quite common and can include nausea,
constipation, and diarrhea. Nutrient deficiencies can appear as a result
of impaired digestion. Other possible side effects include liver
damage, hair loss, breast enlargement in men, dizziness, allergic
reactions, headaches, osteoporosis, depression, insomnia, and impotence.
Cost: A month’s supply of Zantac® or Tagamet® at therapeutic levels
typically costs between $40 and $60.
A More Natural Approach
The use of Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) compared to standard drug
therapy is a classic example of addressing the underlying cause of a
condition rather than simply blocking an effect. Most people do not get
ulcers because of over secretion of acid. The cause in most cases is a
breakdown in the integrity of the intestinal lining. While drugs like
Zantac® and Tagamet® can block symptoms and promote temporary healing,
they don’t address the underlying cause. DGL addresses the underlying
factors and promotes true healing. Rather than inhibit the release of
acid, licorice stimulates the normal defense mechanisms that prevent
ulcer formation. Specifically, flavonoids present in DGL inhibit the
growth of H. pylori in vitro, while the whole extract improves
both the quantity and the quality of the protective substances which
line the intestinal tract, increases the life span of intestinal cells,
and improves blood supply to the intestinal lining.
clinical studies over the years have found DGL to be an effective
anti-ulcer compound. For example in one study, 33 gastric ulcer patients
were treated with either DGL or a placebo for one month. At the end of
the study, there was a significantly greater reduction in ulcer size in
the DGL group (78%) than in the placebo group (34%). Complete healing
occurred in 44% of those receiving DGL, but in only 6% of the placebo
group. In several head to head comparison studies, DGL has been shown to
be more effective than either Tagamet® or Zantac® in both short-term
treatment and maintenance therapy of peptic ulcers. However, while these
drugs are associated with significant side effects, DGL is extremely
safe and is only a fraction of the cost.
with stomach ulcers often rely upon prescription medications that do
little to address the underlying causes of their gastric irritation and
that may be making their symptoms worse due to side effects of these
deglycyrrhizinated licorice does not inhibit the release of acid but
instead is able to activate the mechanisms that protect against the
formation of ulcers in the mucosal linings of the digestive system. DGL
contains flavonoids that help to fight against the bacterium that is
most commonly associated with ulcer formation, H. pylori.
Deglycyrrhizinated licorice is an extract of licorice that does not
cause unwanted side effects associated with the use of licorice. DGL has
several benefits, including being an antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory,
antioxidant and effective remedy for peptic ulcers. It also increases
the life of the intestinal cells as well as stimulates the blood flow to
the intestinal lining.
