How This Helps


In Gastritis, there is a considerable amount of
pre-ulcerative inflammation or erosion present in the lining of the gastric
mucosa of the stomach. This condition is cured by the regeneration of the
gastric mucosa. The medicinal herb Glycyrrhiza glabra is a demulcent
(mucoprotector), which is useful in the regeneration process, as it directly
promotes epithelial regeneration. The active constituent Glycyrrhizin  is
a saponin glycoside which facilitates the healing of intestinal permeability
and inflammation (Aly, A. M., et al. 2005). Glycyrrhiza glabra also has
properties that support  the gluco and mineralocorticoids which make them
anti-inflammatory. These substances coat the gastric mucosa enabling healing
and protection. However, it does not cause high blood pressure when used in the
form of Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL).
