I bought Licorice Root, but before I start taking it I would like to know how other B's take it (how much and when) and their experience with this supplement.  Thanks in advance!

No, I read that the DGL would not work as well.  It just says "licorice root" on the front.

Read MoDon's link. It sounds like DGL works better than plain licorice...especially for Bs.

Hmm.  I recall reading in his book NOT to get DGL because it probably wouldn't work as well.  Does anyone take licorice root (not DGL)?

Which book do you remember reading this in? Perhaps this information has changed with a later edition.

I'm interested in this too.

I understand the issue is that regulare licorice can raise blood pressure, right?

Maybe Marisa is like me:

I have low PB & low body temp + getting off caffiene for the sake of my adrenal glands = I just want to sit or lay down all day.  Have to force myself forward to get anything done. It has occured to me that regular licorice may help.

Please give me your thoughts on my reasoning - is it flawed?

Lola - the NAP Licorice DGL has the glycyrrhizin removed. For type B in the Fatigue book it list: Licorice (Glycyrrhiza sp) with no mention of DGL.

Also I have read that it is rare for a person with AF to have high BP.
Is it possible to find out for sure what Dr. D intended.

In the the Fatigue-Fighting Protocol, Dr. D lists:

BLOOD GROUP B

Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus), 250 mg: 1 capsule, twice daily
Magnesium, 350 mg: 2 capsules, twice daily
Nitricycle: 1 capsule once or twice daily
DGL Licorice (Glycyrrhiza sp), 150 mg capsules or chewable tablets: 1 before meals
Polyvite B multivitamin: 2-3 capsules daily

Found this, too:
http://www.dadamo.com/forum/convert1/config.pl?read=99

"With regard to type B's, fatigue is generally a problem which is corrected by the ABO diet, as the fatigue in type B's is generally "nervous" as opposed to "metabolic". B's do metabolize carbs better than type O and in certain circumstances do rather well on them.

Licorice tea (any form) is the equivalent of licorice root tea, though the book also draws a distinction between licorice "extract" used by naturopaths, "DGL", a form of licorice made by removing one ingredient know to cause water retention and beneficial for ulcers, and licorice tea. In general the tea can be used to great effect by most people. Be aware of water retention with continued use though." Peter D'Adamo

This might depend on what other health issues are involved. Take my mom for example.........she has adrenal fatigue and if she were tested, I'd say she prob has adrenal exhaustion. With this came diabetes, high blood pressure and a ton of other issues. So many things stem from AF. Until the AF is 'fixed', you're just putting a bandage on the issue. Could even stem from the pituitary.

DGL = Deglycyrrhizinated Liquorice

Isn't the DGL the "Active Ingredient" though? The concern is for "High Doses" of Glycyrrhizinic Acid and Glycyrrhetinic Acid in Liquorice Extract.

I chew on a 1" piece of the root for a natural toothbrush - I believe its the Glycyrrhizin thats good for the gums, etc. I used to use it as a Sugar Substitute for Tea....

Personally I avoid Extracts and Tinctures like the Plague - Chewing on the root, or using Pieces thereof as a Tea Sweetener, I would suspect has a much lower concentration & you get the fibresIts the Glycyrrhizin thats been removed in the NAP.
The Glycyrrhizin would be the Yellow Colouring that gets leached from the root in the process of Extraction.

Well I use pure root in tea- when my stomach is playing up
not pure as I find the taste too strong- I don´t use a lot of it but mix with other herbs.

I don´t have a problem with high bloodpressure - mine is 115/70  and my hormones are fine as well- so I don´t worry.

Thanks Drea for finding this:

I think better to go for DGL, cause the normal licorice might elevate  bp...so far here we are on the safer side

I read it in the Live Right book, I bought it about 2 or 3 years ago.  Maybe I just won't take it at all, I'm a little too nervous!

I recently bought some DGL licorice. But when I opened the capsule to taste it, it didn't taste like licorice. It actually didn't even have a taste. Why is this?




On the bottle it just says:

"Formulated by Dr. D to promote a healthy digestive tract."

and here's what it says on the http://www.4yourtpe.com website:

"Licorice has been used in European and Asian medical traditional systems for thousands of years. Among its many credited applications, licorice was believed to be an exceptional demulcent with the ability to sooth gastric and intestinal irritation.

In type O, DGL can help the stomach and upper digestive tract to function more efficiently. In type B, DGL can help with energy and fatigue. In both types, DGL can be a powerful addition to liver metabolism and the body’s normal detoxification process.

In addition, LIcorice is thought to support your body's ability to fight fungal infection and yeast overgrowth, which can contribute to lack of energy and fatigue.

Dr. D’Adamo’s DGL licorice has had the glycyrrhizin removed, so it can be safely used without worry of elevating the blood pressure or causing water retention."

hopefully that clears things up

Glycyrrhizin is the compound removed from the root to make DGL - all thats left is the pulp. I'd really doubt industry goes thru the effort to remove just the Glycyrrhizinic Acid from all the other compunds in the Root.

Glycyrrhizin is also the compound that gives Liquorice its Flavour & Sweetness.
