Licorice has historically been regarded as an excellent medicine for peptic ulcers. However, the licorice compound "glycyrrhetinic acid" can cause the side effect of elevated blood pressure in some individuals. A procedure was developed to remove this compound, making deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL). This created a successful anti-ulcer agent without any known side effects.

DGL stimulates or accelerates the protective factors that guard against ulcer formation, including increasing the production of mucin, the protective coating in the stomach and intestines. Numerous studies have found DGL to be an effective anti-ulcer compound. In several head-to-head comparison studies, DGL has been shown to be more effective than either Tagamet, Zantac or antacids in both short-term treatment and maintenance therapy of gastic and duodenal ulcers. DGL also contains several flavonoids that have been shown to inhibit H. pylori bacteria.

DGL must mix with saliva to be effective in healing peptic ulcers. This may be due to its ability to promote the release of salivary compounds that stimulate the growth and regeneration of stomach and intestinal cells. As a result, DGL in capsule form has not been found to be effective.
