Benefits of Liquorice Root (Organic)


Ancient civilizations in Egypt, Greece, and China all used liquorice root, sometimes known as liquorice root, as a medicinal remedy. It was so prized by the ancient Egyptians that it was found in the tomb of Tutankhamun along with his most treasured possessions.  Coughs, sore throats, and gastrointestinal problems are just some of the conditions that the root has traditionally been used to cure. 

Liqueur liquorice root contains the active component glycyrrhizin, which has been studied for its potential anti-inflammatory and anti-viral effects. In addition, it may help those who suffer from tummy troubles including acid reflux or stomach ulcers. Liquorice root is rich in flavonoids and other antioxidants, which can aid to defend cells from free radical damage.


Liquorice root has shown promise in treating diabetes and menopausal symptoms in preliminary studies.

It has been shown, in a laboratory environment, to be effective against some of the most deadly viruses and bacterial infections, including HIV and MRSA. Liquorice also has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to kill cancer cells.

So it seems the ancient Egyptians were right to prize this herb so highly.
