HOW IT WORKS
We know this herb for its wide use as a candy flavoring, but its value goes far beyond that. The dietary use of licorice goes back several thousand years. Traditional herbalists use licorice root as a general tonic and for glandular support. It also supports the liver. Most Chinese herb combinations use licorice to balance the other herbs and to promote vitality. It has a reputation for helping the entire body maintain balance (particularly helpful to women who menstruate) and for promoting well-being. Licorice contains triterpenoid saponins, flavonoids, isoflavonoids and other beneficial constituents.
WHY OUR LICORICE ROOT?
Our licorice root is wild-crafted in a specially chosen region in Turkey. There, expert harvesters collect roots of the perfect size, from ¼ to 1 inch in diameter. They leave the plant in place for future gleaning, creating a sustainable supply. These plants will produce for many years. Licorice root is sought for its value as a powder and as a tea.
THE STORY BEHIND LICORICE ROOT
Ancient Greeks and Romans used licorice root for health benefits. Traditional Chinese Medicines relied on licorice to provide respiratory, digestive and reproductive system support. Today it grows well across Europe and Asia.
