Licorice Root

2 oz.

Licorice has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its various health benefits. Some potential benefits of licorice root include:

Digestive Support: Licorice root contains compounds that soothe and protect the digestive tract. It can help alleviate symptoms of indigestion, acid reflux, and stomach ulcers by promoting the production of mucous in the stomach lining, reducing inflammation, and inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria.

Respiratory Health: Licorice root is known for its expectorant and demulcent properties, making it effective in treating respiratory conditions such as coughs, colds, and bronchitis. It helps to loosen mucus, soothe irritated throat tissues, and relieve coughing, making it easier to expel phlegm and congestion.

Anti-inflammatory Effects: Licorice root contains glycyrrhizin, a compound with potent anti-inflammatory properties. It helps reduce inflammation throughout the body, making it beneficial for conditions such as arthritis, asthma, and skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis.

Hormonal Balance: Licorice root contains phytoestrogens that can help balance hormone levels in the body. It is particularly beneficial for women experiencing menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. Licorice root may also help regulate menstrual cycles and alleviate symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

Directions: add one teaspoon of licorice root to hot water. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy. 


FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
