Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra)


Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra)

A staple of both Eastern and Western medicine, licorice acts as a demulcent, a soothing and coating agent, and as an expectorant, making it an excellent natural alternative to drug-store remedies during the height of cold and flu season. Licorice is also considered an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogenic herbs help balance the whole body, rather than focusing on one specific area. Additionally, licorice root aids in increasing energy levels, helps the body deal with stress levels and supports adrenal gland function. During periods of stress, cortisol levels can rise and adrenal function can become challenged. Licorice root works as a blocking agent for the body’s breakdown of cortisol. This allows hormone levels to normalize. With the stress of the holidays in full swing, you might want to consider licorice as a possible natural aid in maintaining your overall health. Try it as a tea, or chew on a whole licorice root. People with high blood pressure should exercise caution when using licorice. Consult your Holistic Doctor to determine if licorice might be right for you.
