Licorice Root

Licorice root (Glycyrriza glabra) has a long history of use in Chinese medicine where it is known as the “great harmonizer.” It is frequently added to mixed botanical preparations to balance herbs and promote digestion and vitality.

Licorice root extract may be helpful for treating symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Studies have shown the extract to have mild estrogenic activity, which may help regulate the estrogen-progesterone ratio.

Daily intakes of high doses (over 50 grams) can potentially upset potassium balance and increase the risk of hypertension in some individuals.
