DGL: DGL is licorice w/an enzyme removed which could raise BP if taken over a long period of time. DGL is used as a natural replacement for acid blockers. It coats the stomach and esophagus. Peace and good health. If you are on an acid blocker and switch (ask doc first) you may have a rebound effect for a while. Apple cider vinegar 9get it "w/the mother" is also used. Put it in a little water.
