Licorice or ‘Liquorice’ (Glycyrrhiza glabra), is an herbaceous perennial legume found in the middle east, southern Europe and Asia, where its root has long been used in herbal preparations. Licorice is valued for its rich flavor. It derives its name from the Greek word ‘glukurrhiza’ which means ‘sweet root’, attributing to a component called “glycyrrhizin” present in its root which is much sweeter than sugar. Licorice taken as a supplement can help the body produce healthy mucus and hence support respiratory health. * Studies indicate that Licorice is a powerful antioxidant that helps the body discard toxic waste (detox) and promotes gastrointestinal health. * Licorice supplements can also give the adrenal gland some relief. Licorice root extract supports healthy levels of cortisol in the body and hence promotes wellness during times of occasional stress. * Ingredients in Licorice
