Heal Ulcers, Heartburn, GERD, and More with DGL


What is DGL?
Licorice root is a natural, herbal treatment derived from the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant.  Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice Root Extract(“DGL”) is made from licorice from which the glycyrrizin has been removed.  Glycyrrizin gives licorice its sweet taste, but is also responsible for some troublesome side effects, such as elevated blood pressure and water retention.  DGL plus anti-acids has been widely used in Europe, South America, and Canada.
 
 
What Does it Do?
DGL helps with heartburn, respiratory infections, stomach upset, canker sores, and helps to heal ulcers. 
 
 
Stomach Upset, GERD (Reflux) and Heartburn:  DGL stimulates and accelerates the natural protective juices in the digestive tract, it can relieve stomach discomfort immediately by providing soothing relief for the stomach lining and the intestinal tract. 

Stomach Ulcers and Gastritis:  A study has found that chewable deglycyrrinizated licorice (DGL) tablets were just as effective at healing stomach ulcers and keeping them healed without side effects, as the acid-blocking drug cimetidine (Tagamet). Chewable DGL is also helpful in treating ulcers of the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. Capsules of DGL may not work for ulcers, as saliva helps to activate the properties in DGL.

Respiratory Infections:  Historically, licorice root has been used to reduce respiratory tract mucus caused by infections or asthma. DGL works as an expectorant, which helps thin out respiratory mucus, making the mucus easier for the lungs to clear out.

Canker Sores:   DGL can be used to speed up healing of painful canker sores inside the mouth by thickening the mucosal lining of the mouth. Chew the tablet, and coat the sore with the paste, which will eventually dissolve.  You can repeat this up to 4 times a day. 
 
 
Dosage
Health professionals with the New York University Langone Medical Center recommend taking two to four 380 mg. tablets of DGL daily. Typically, this herbal supplement is taken at bedtime or mealtime. Treatment with DGL should not exceed four to six weeks.  For children, half the adult dosage is recommended.

Theanine: Nature's Remedy for Stress and More



Do you suffer from anxiety? Stress? Lethargy? Insomnia? Decreased mood or cognitive function? Lowered immune system function? High blood pressure? Surgery recovery problems?  Cancer? Would you like a supplement that helps with all of these problems, while being 100% natural and having no side effects? Look no further than your pantry!

L-Theanine (chemical name: r-glutamylethylamide) is an amino acid commonly found in green tea, and has been shown to reduce stress and act as a natural tranquilizer while at the same time improving mood, cognition, and alertness. Able to cross the blood-brain barrier, theanine alters the levels of serotonin and dopamine in the brain.  One of the great things about Theanine is that it will not make you drowsy or have any of the other terrible side effects that pharmaceutical tranquillizers do.


A glutamate derivative, Theanine works by blocking the binding of l-glutamic acid to glutamate receptors in the brain, promoting alpha wave (i.e., relaxation) production in the brain, and it increasing the overall level of the brain inhibitory transmitter GABA. GABA is a neurotransmitter responsible for relaxation, pain relief, and sleep, and several neurological disorders, such as epilepsy, sleep disorders, and Parkinson’s disease are affected by it (indeed, benzodiazepines like Valium and Xanax increase GABA in the brain, but with a host of terrible side effects). 


Interestingly, theanine may help the body's immune response to infection by boosting the disease-fighting capacity of gamma delta T cells. Theanine may also help lower blood pressure, fight obesity, and protect against liver injury), prevent cognitive dysfunction and help with Alzheimer’s, and even protect against cancer drug DNA damage on bone marrow.  



Theanine has been recently shown to have antipsychotic-like and possibly atidepressant-like effects and improve memory and attention. 

A recent study in Canada found that Theanine is a safe and effective therapy for childhood ADHD.  They stated: “This study demonstrates that 400 mg daily of L-theanine is safe and effective in improving some aspects of sleep quality in boys diagnosed with ADHD.”

Researchers in Japan found that Theanine can help recover from surgery, saying “These results suggest that CT suppresses inflammatory responses by inhibiting the surgically induced decrease in GSH in the small intestine and promotes postoperative recovery.” 
 
 
You can just drink a lot of green tea, or get yourself a Theanine supplement.  Theanine supplements abound. I like Suntheanine a pure form of the unique amino acid L-theanine).
