Glycyrrhiza glabra - Licorice

EU organic logo

Liquorice root is a sweet gift from mother nature. Its compound glycyrrhizin is forty times sweeter than sugar without elevating blood sugar. In fact, in animal studies, licorice seems to have an anti-diabetic effect.

Its properties are as amazing as its sweetness. It is a primary adaptogen, very nourishing for the adrenal glands. As an added bonus, it helps with digestion, especially for people with acid reflux and stomach ulcers. We love liquorice root to balance out multi herbal formulas.

Herbalists use it:

  • To soothe upper respiratory conditions
  • To prevent and treat acid reflux and stomach ulcers
  • To support hormonal function

Do you hate liquorice candy? No problem, you’ll still love liquorice root! Most “liquorice candy” is flavoured with anise and artificial flavouring. Liquorice root has a very mild neutral flavour. If you mix it with other herbs, it will sweeten the mixture without much changing the flavour.

The best liquorice in the world comes from Spain. It's traditional there to give the fresh root to children to chew instead of candy or as a digestive for adults after meals. The fresh root it's called "palodú" or "paloduz".

How to use it? Add a bit to your herbal teas to sweeten them. Remember that the longer you steep it the sweeter the tea will turn.
