Licorice root is a sweet herb and well documented as being benefical for many digestive system issues. Licorice root has been used as a medicinal herb almost since time began and is highly valued for the cooling and calming effect on the whole digestive system. Licorice contain glycyrrhizin, which is known for causing hypertension (high blood pressure), so not recommended for people taking blood pressure medication.
It is best not to take any licorice supplements if you are taking anti-hypertensive or diuretic medications, or if you are experiencing chronic kidney insufficiency, liver cirrhosis. If you are pregnant or breast feeding do not ingest pure licorice.
Suggested intake is 70 to 150 mg of liquorice. Do not use Licorice for more than 4 – 6 weeks without the advice of a health practitioner. For healthy adults licorice can be very beneficial.
