Glycyrrhizinic and glycyrrhetinic acids, associated with high blood pressure, have been removed.

Licorice soothes mucous membranes and also promotes healing. So these tablets can be used to soothe the GI tract, or they can be used to relieve heartburn (GERD).
If using for heartburn relief, slowly suck one tablet before each meal. Some people also find it useful to suck an additional tablet after the meal as well - test it and see. But remember to suck, not chew the tablet, as that gives the licorice more time to work before you start eating.
Mannitol and sorbitol can cause diarrhea in susceptible people in higher amounts (as can all sugar alcohols). So if you're susceptible to diarrhea, start with only one lozenge before meals and see how you react. Or, if you're using these for heartburn treatment, then use the Natren Gastro-pH - chewable wafers instead.
