Certified Organic Licorice Root Sticks (Glycyrrhiza glabra) are a traditional Chinese herb that has been used for many health ailments. Scientific studies of Glycyrrhiza have shown anti-viral properties, adaptogenic properties (supports the adrenal glands), and anti-inflammatory benefit to the respiratory system. Licorice has also been shown to aid in healing ulcers. Licorice root makes a deliciously sweet tea, but does not affect blood sugar levels. Since it appears to potentiate the body’s natural steroid, cortisol, people with high blood pressure should not take more then 5 grams of this herb daily.
