Licorice Root has been used for over 5,000 years and is one of the oldest known plants recognized for its highly beneficial properties. A diverse chemical composition makes licorice an amazing aid to improve numerous conditions. One of the best known properties of licorice is its ability to suppress coughing. This effect is from to glycyrrhizin that boosts secretory function of the upper respiratory tract and has expectorant effect.

Saponins of licorice stimulate the secretion in the glands located on mucous membranes. They are known for their expectorant, diuretic and laxative effects.

Licorice flavonoids have antispasmodic effect; they relax the muscular lining of the bronchi and of the blood vessels.

Polysaccharides normalize protein-carbohydrate metabolism and contribute to an immune response; they have antibiotic and antiviral effects.

Mucous substances stimulate recovery of gastrointestinal mucous membranes and have a laxative effect.

From the content of vitamin C and licorice flavonoids, Licorice root improves overall health and is recommended as a general tonic.

Licorice Root Usage

Dissolve one tablet in a cup of boiling water and drink as a tea.

The ancient Chinese book of herbs is a living testimony to the popularity of licorice. For centuries Chinese physicians regarded the licorice root as a class one active component and tried to include it in every herbal concoction they came up with since it magnifies the effect of other treatments, serving as a kind of conduit for them. In addition, it can also neutralize toxins. Licorice root is routinely included in diuretic teas, expectorants, and in potions for gastritis and peptic ulcer.

Licorice root is an effective treatment for all the conditions mentioned above and has a most positive effect on the body thanks to its unique combination of active ingredients.

Licorice root contains glycoside, triperpene saponin, sucrose, flavonoids, volatile oil, vitamin C, yellow pigment, minerals, mucous, pectin, and other biologically active ingredients.

The expectorant effect has to do with glycoside, which stimulates the secretion function of the upper trachea. What’s extremely important is that it’s very close in structure and effect to steroid hormones that are generated by the cortical layer of the adrenal glands and have a strong anti-inflammatory effect. In addition, it also stimulates the production of hormones by the adrenal glands.

Saponins contained in the plant irritate the mucous membranes not only in the trachea but also in the other organs, which increases the secretions of their glands. It is for this reason that licorice is included with expectorants, diuretics, and laxatives.

Flavonoids make licorice products effective in relieving spasms in the smooth muscles of the bronchial and vessel walls.

Polysaccharides serve as a major source of energy and normalize the carbohydrate metabolism. They also participate in the immune system’s processes and act as antibiotic and antiviral agents. The large quantities of mucous substances help in the healing of erosions in the gastrointestinal tract and also achieve a laxative effect.
