Troubled by IBS, stomach upset, hyperacidity, ulcers?

Licorice naturally contains 10 triterpenes and 22 different flavonoids, which are believed to be responsible for its benefits.*1

Licorice has been used as a highly effective alternative to antacids and acid-blocking drugs. By comparison, licorice works not by inhibiting acid production, but rather through supporting and stimulating the stomach's natural protective mechanisms.*2 Stomach discomfort is usually attributed to an imbalance between acid secretion and the stomach's ability to protect itself against the irritation caused by acid. The presence of harmful bacteria can also be a factor. The stomach's primary defense against corrosive gastric acid is a fine layer of mucin, secreted by millions of mucosal cells that line the stomach wall. Licorice has been shown to stimulate both the secretion of mucin and the formation of new mucosal cells, probably through its ability to increase blood flow to mucosal tissue.*2
