Hi all,

I just wanted to ask those who use DGL daily, are you sure it doesn't cause any side effects? This may sounds strange and I don't know if what happened to me in the past is related to my DGL use but about a year ago while I was taking it before meals, I started developing pigment problems on my face. It is hard to explain but they are areas that looked freckled but not natural freckling. One dermatologist wasn't sure if DGL could cause it but didn't rule it out because she said plants can have strange effects on the body. The areas never went away. I stopped the DGL and saw no other signs of it. I did begin using sunscreen daily. The reason I'm asking about this is because I would really like to try DGL again. I was on Aciphex but I find I don't sleep as well with it. I've tried all the other PPI's with no luck. The Aciphex was the best. When I had my last doctor's appointment he advised I start taking drug holidays because a new study was released that said long term use of PPI's is linked to osteoporosis. He said taking off on weekends or 1 week a month would be good. That alone made me want to get off the PPI for good. I've tried all kinds of diet changes, etc. but no matter what I do I have heartburn/reflux. I had the PH test and it came back that I have a moderate case of it. Anyway, I would love to hear about your experiences with DGL.

I never had any side effects from the DGL but I only took it for one month. I don't have any allergies so could you may be be allergic to it? Or was it something else that you were eating that could have caused it? You could try it again and keep a lookout for any unusual.

As far as what Indersonu wrote about magnesium stearate- it's totally ridiculous! Maybe one should start looking at what all the PPI's are doing to the body instead!!!!


I was cured in one month by using DGL, and I would recommend it to anyone. Some on this board have had a huge success with it too....but others refuse to believe they can overcome all the drugs they have been on forever by using this product. I was convinced it was safe after reading Dr. Weil's (a medical doctor) recommendation on his site. See all my back postings on this subject.
