Apollo’s Hegemony DGL High Potency is a product containing deglycyrrhizinated liquorice (DGL) extract and aloe vera. The preparation is intended to alleviate inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract, support the immune system, and improve digestive comfort.
Liquorice is the root of the plant Glycyrrhiza glabra. The medicinal root has been popular in traditional medicine for millenia. Liquorice contains a wealth of active substances, out of which about 400 have been identified. They include triterpene saponins, such as glycyrrhizin. Glycyrrhizin, however, can lead to some side effects in the case of overconsumption of liquorice: increased arterial pressure, swellings, and reduced potassium levels.
A deglycyrrhizinated extract allows to benefit from the multitude of liquorice’s health benefits without risking the side effects caused by glycyrrhizin.
The active components of liquorice have been proven to exert beneficial effects on many aspects of digestive system function and can prove invaluable in many digestive disorders. Thanks to its natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, liquorice helps to inhibit the growth of Helicobacter pylori, a bacterial species that leads to gastric ulcers. Liquorice can also alleviate the ulcer-induced damage of the mucous membranes of the digestive system as well as support healing processes.
Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis) is a plant known for its ability to absorb large amounts of water. It contains, for example, significant amounts of amino acids and polysaccharides. Aloe is associated with the ability to regenerate gastric mucosa, normalise the digestive system, enhance intestinal peristalsis, and alleviate inflammation. Because of that, aloe perfectly complements the health-improving properties of liquorice.
In summary, Apollo’s Hegemony DGL High Potency is a preparation based on natural plant extracts characterised by a wide range of positive effects on the digestive system. The product is recommended particularly for individuals struggling with digestive disorders and those who wish to enhance the functioning of their immune systems.
