Licorice Root (dried, organic)
Glycyrrhiza glabra

"It has the property of quenching thirst if one holds it in the mouth" - Theophrastus of Lesbos c310 BC

Root - Tincture - Use as an anti-inflammatory for arthritic or allergic conditions, as a digestive stimulant or for lung disorders. Prescribed for gastric inflammation or to encourage adrenal function after steroid therapy. Helps disguise the flavour of other medicines.

Root - Decoction - Prescribed to reduce stomach acidity in ulceration.

Root - Syrup - Take a syrup made from the decoction as a soothing expectorant for asthma and bronchitis.

Caution - Avoid licorice in high blood pressure, as it is believed to cause fluid retention. Licorice should not be taken by people on digoxin-based drugs.
