Hey guys, I read this article today... I don't know how many of you eat black licorice for GERD relief, but the FDA is issuing warnings that it can potentially cause heart problems by causing a drop in potassium levels.

Just wanted you all to be aware! PLEASE BE ADVISED that from what I have read, DGL should be safe due to the fact that the ingredient which causes the potassium drop - glycyrrhizin - has been removed. Of course, that's just from what I've found on the internet, so proceed at your own risk.

Be well, everyone!
