If you have severe GERD like I do, you will also find relief taking this pill. It really calms the stomach acid almost immediately. I always have these pills on hand. My GERD is caused by my disease and medications. So there are times when I get break-out heartburn.
So when I feel that acid, I immediately chew one of the DGL licorice tablets. Although it doesn't taste good, it does give me an immediate relief. Unfortunately, even though it is a great product, I cannot use it often because it can cause a raise in blood pressure.
Like any other supplement, you need to be careful how you use it and how it affects your body. So check with your doctor or pharmacist to see if it adversly interacts with your other medication.
