Product Information:

Licorice Root 450 mg 100 caps by Natures Way

Licorice will help to keep your lungs clear, your digestive tract calm, your colon cleansed and your adrenal gland functioning properly.  Alexander the Great gave his soldiers Licorice to boost their energy before a battle, so why not try some if you are feeling exhausted and stressed?  It is also helpful with "liver spots" (dark circular spots on face and hands.) which can affect older people.  

Licorice is a reliable and pleasant way to soothe a sore throat. Licorice has been used for thousands of years as a superior expectorant that is primarily used for respiratory problems. The herb helps loosen phlegm and ease non-productive coughs. It is also very helpful for bronchitis, congestion and colds.  As a demulcent, Licorice soothes mucous membranes and helps relieve sore throats.  As an anti-inflammatory, the glycyrrhizinic acid activity in Licorice seems related to the way corticoids are released from the adrenal glands, which is helpful in treating arthritis, rheumatism and stiff, painful joints.  The herb stimulates production of cortisone and aldosterone, which appear to be effective anti-inflammatory agents.

Contraindication:  Not for high blood pressure, pregnancy or if cystic.  Use in moderation.
