Licorice root also known as sweet root is one of the most used medicinal herbs worldwide which grows wild in many parts of Europe and Asia.
A lot of studies have shown that the specific herb is very useful to treat various disturbances of our gastrointestinal tract, specifically it helps fight ulcer's and provides relief. Licorice root helps the body create a protective lining in order to protect our stomach from hydrochloric acid (Hcl).
Licorice is also good for:
- respiratory system
- sore throat
- infections caused by bacteria or viruses.
Of course its benefits don’t stop here. It is useful for people suffering from low blood pressure and according to many studies it has estrogen-like properties, making it a natural regulator of female hormone.

Although licorice is considered beneficial to human health, you should avoid taking in excessive amounts, large amounts can cause high blood pressure.
