LICORICE ROOT (Glycyrrhiza Glabra)
There are more than 300 different compounds in licorice, some of which have antiviral and antimicrobial properties.
A double-blind study found that an extract containing glabridin and glabrene, which are flavonoids present in licorice root, was effective in relieving stomach discomfort. The extract reduced nausea, stomach pain, and heartburn.
Licorice contains a natural hormone that will replace cortisone as well as the female hormone estrogen. It stimulates the adrenal glands and helps the body maintain normal blood sugar levels.
Glycyrrhizin may help treat hepatitis C, a virus that infects the liver. Without treatment, hepatitis C can cause inflammation and long-term liver damage.
