Cankermelts Natural GX Time-Release patch is a relatively new treatment for canker sores. The oral patch is applied on the sore and contains natural licorice root extract or also known as Glycyrrhiza extract (GX). Licorice is a natural remedy that has been long used in medicine due to its healing, anti-inflammatory, soothing and coating properties.
The study conducted by scientists at the University of Washington and Orahealth Corporation found that for 8 out of 10 people, the application of Cankermelts patch led to the total reduction of pain after 3 days. After 7 days of use, the canker sores became considerably smaller in comparison to those that were not treated with Cankermelts. Also, the previous studies showed that the patch healed the canker sores in 3 or fewer days.
Unlike other canker sores treatments that have a numbing effect on the sore, Cankermelts Natural GX eases the pain without numbing in several minutes after application. As you apply the patch, it starts to dissolve slowly, offering the pain relief and covering the sore to avoid irritation. It also heals the canker sores faster in just 1 to 5 days allowing you to enjoy your usual activities.
