Stomach protection from anti-inflammatory drugs?

Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
What can I take to protect my stomach lining from damaging anti-inflammatory drugs?

A: Preliminary evidence suggests that deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) might also help protect the stomach from damage due to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Some other evidence suggests that cayenne can protect the stomach against damage caused by anti-inflammatory drugs.
