Licorice Root

Glycyrrhiza glabra

Natural Digestive Support*

Unlike the licorice root used in ancient times, Natural Factors’ supplements are made with deglycyrrhizinated licorice. This means that we have removed the compound glycyrrhizin that can raise blood pressure in some people. Now you can enjoy the digestive benefits of licorice without worrying about its side effects.*

Licorice root is well known for its distinct herbal flavor and natural sweetness. But before it became a popular culinary ingredient, licorice was used for health purposes. Ancient civilizations throughout Europe and Asia used licorice root and its extracts for their soothing digestive benefits.* Licorice root is also used as a “guiding” herb in many traditional Chinese formulas because it can enhance the effectiveness of other herbs.

If you’re looking for a natural way to support stomach health, licorice root is sure to please.* Cooling in nature, licorice root supports and maintains your digestive tract’s own built-in systems.* By stimulating the production of mucin, the slippery protective coating of the stomach and intestines, licorice root helps maintain health and comfort insensitive digestive tissues.* 


Chewing just one Natural Factors DGL tablet before each meal will give you the long-standing benefits of licorice root without the side effects or strong flavor of regular forms.*
