£ 2.49
Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is an amazing plant with interesting health and caring properties. It is mainly associated with sweets with a specific taste and black color. Licorice root is naturally sweet due to the presence of glycyrrhizin, which is 50 times sweeter than sugar. Liquorice bioactive substances are known for their positive effects on the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory system and female reproductive system.

Licorice occurs in Europe and Asia, and its history dates back to ancient times. It was formerly used to treat many diseases, from colds and gastrointestinal ailments, to liver diseases and inflammation. Licorice is one of the most important herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

LIQUORICE DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE
- Licorice root has a very sweet taste, similar to anise, with a bitter-salty taste. The longer the root stays in the water, the more intense it gives the flavor, so it should not be brewed for too long

- It is best to prepare the brew from licorice root. Just pour boiling water over it and brew for about 5 minutes - it's worth adjusting the amount of liquorice and brewing time to your taste preferences
- A pinch of cut licorice root is worth adding to tea to give it an interesting, sweet taste. Licorice goes well with herbal, spice and ginger teas. It doesn't go well with fruit teas and lemon juice. Licorice root can also be chewed.
- The dried root should be stored in a tightly closed container. You can store it for a very long time.

- It is better not to eat licorice in the evening, because it can interfere with falling asleep.

- Excessive licorice intake can cause side effects such as elevated aldosterone levels, headaches, fatigue, high blood pressure, and water retention.
