Product Description

Licorice (Gan cao) is from the latin word "liquiritia", is known for its sweetening characteristic. Chinese ranked licorice as "superior", which means it could be used over a long period of time with no toxic effect, it is being used by the Chinese for more than 5,000 years. Its roots have tremendous therapeutic properties. Hippocrates called it sweet root. Its root contains a substance that is 50 to 100 times sweeter than table sugar.

The Greeks used licorice as thirst quencher and to relieve swelling caused by water retention.

In recent times science has been re-discovering the health benefits of licorice. Licorice is in fact a powerful antiviral that contains 10 antioxidants, at least 25 fungicidal and 9 expectorant compounds. Licorice also includes MAO inhibitors, several XO inhibitors, and natural estrogenic ingredients. But this is not all that helps to form licorice. Licorice is also made up of beneficial components such as phytochemicals, magnesium, and sodium.
