You can add marshmallow root to your diet by drinking marshmallow tea before and after meals, or as a nutritional supplement in liquid or tincture form. It’s always best to check with a licensed healthcare practitioner before supplementing with marshmallow root, as it may interact with prescription medications.
Licorice Root (DGL)
Licorice, or deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), is said to help strengthen and soothe the stomach and esophageal lining (16). It may also help reduce abdominal discomfort, such as bloating, gas and burning.
While the regular consumption of traditional licorice can have negative side effects, such as raising your blood pressure, deglycyrrhizinated licorice is a form that’s safe for consumption on a regular basis (17).
Licorice root is commonly added to digestive herbal tea blends, and can be taken in capsule or chewable tablet form, similar to an all-natural “TUMS.” You may want to keep licorice tablets in your car glove box, purse or desk for symptom relief on-the-go.
