Description & Benefits


Liquorice has traditionally been utilized to increase energy and stamina, fight bronchitis, upper respiratory catarrh, and coughs, as well as to reduce stomach acid. It also increases mucus secretion in the gastric tract, soothing irritation and inflammation.

Liquorice root contains more than 20 triterpenoids and nearly 300 flavonoids - with the main active components among them being glycyrrhizin, 18β-glycyrrhetinic acid, liquiritigenin, licochalcone A, E and glabridin.

Immuno-modulating effects of glycyrrhizin and glycyrrhetinic acid as well as various triterpenoids have been shown to induce interferon-gamma and other cytokines response, which accounts for the powerful antiviral, anti- inflammatory, anti-tumorigenic, and antimalarial effects from this root

Liquorice root also helps the body produce healthy mucus within the bronchial system as well as tracheal system, providing demulcent and expectorant effects. This keeps the respiratory system functioning well making it effective in treatment of sore throat, cough and bronchial catarrh

This root also inhibits the growth of various viruses, including herpes simplex, varicella zoster, as well as the infamous influenza virus.
