Licorice [Glycyrrhiza glabra]

Licorice root is one of the most widely used herbs worldwide and is the single most used herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine today.

Licorice root is utilized to treat ailments like digestive issues, lung, and respiratory function, adrenal stress response, heartburn, acid reflux, hot flashes, coughs, and bacterial and viral and fungal infections.

The root acts as a demulcent, a soothing coating agent, and as an expectorant, meaning it helps get rid of phlegm. Because of its sweet taste and wide-ranging capabilities, licorice is a common addition to herbal formulas across the medicine systems.
