Be the first to review this product

Licorice is said to be one of the most extensively researched medicinal plants, and it has a lengthy list of versatile uses to match. More than 400 compounds have been isolated from licorice, including isoliquiritigenin and naringenin. These constituents promote regulatory T cell induction, which plays a critical role in controlling immune responses and preventing autoimmunity.

Licorice is aadaptogen herb, it can be found growing in Europe, the Mediterranean and Asia, and it’s been used for many purposes for thousands of years. In Chinese medicine Licorice Root has been used for centuries for coughs and colds, gastrointestional issues, and female reproductive issues. 

One interesting note about the way licorice has been used in Chinese medicine is that it was used as a “guide drug.” Licorice root was used in tandem with other herbs and remedies to enhance their effects and essentially guide the other herbs to where they would be most beneficial. In 2013, this use was observed and reviewed by the Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. (3) This ancient purpose, along with other Licorice Root benefits, no doubt contributed to licorice root being the most used herb in Chinese medicine! (4Europeans didn’t ignore the benefits of licorice as supplement, either. Licorice root has documented uses from antiquity, from ancient Greece and Rome to the Middle Ages and beyond. (5) By the 20th century, manufacturing allowed the root to be stripped for pharmaceutical uses and then extracted for candy sweetener. (6)

So although Licorice Root can be used for dandruff, it's main strength is combating hair loss and baldness, or just stopping that from happening in the first place, it may possibly be along with Fulvic Minerals and MSM the most important element in keeping your hair healthy and present.

Oral Health
You can mix 1/2 teaspoon licorice extract with 1/4 cup water, swish, gargle, and expel the mouthwash four times daily for canker sores. 
In a study, published in the Journal of Natural Products, author Stefan Gafner Ph.D., a researcher for the natural care products company Tom's of Maine, (a division of Colgate-Palmolive) reported that two compounds found in dried licorice root are effective antibacterial substances that can prevent the growth several major bacteria connected with cavities and gum disease.  In the study, licoricidin and licorisoflavan A inhibited two of the major bacteria responsible for dental cavities and two of the bacteria that promote gum disease and licoricidin also inhibited a third gum disease bacterium.

Adrenal Health 
Adrenal health can be compramised by environmental, physical and mental stress. In the medical journal Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology, licorice was found to help the body more efficiently regulate cortisol — the stress hormone — thus giving your adrenals a break. (R) It turns out it’s one of the main adaptogen herbs to help improve stress response.

Sleep Health
Glycyrrhiza glabra, one type of licorice root, can help induce sleep and increase sleep duration (R). The GABA receptor is an important target for inducing sleep. Gabrol and liquiritigenin induces sleep in mice via the GABA receptor. This decreased the time required to fall asleep and increased the length of non-REM sleep without decreasing deep sleep (R).

Male Fertility
Licorice May Benefit Male Infertility... 
In mice, licorice extract increased sperm production, which may benefit male infertility (R). Ancient Purity would suggest that along with Maca and Camu Camu being used together and Dong Quai .We would recommend the 4 in a smoothie, althouhg there is as always no scientific evidence. 

Licorice is emerging as a prominent player in the search for treatment and prevention for diseases like hepatitis C, HIV and influenza. The triterpenoid content has been confirmed as an antiviral, making licorice extract a potentially strong partner for the immune system. (18) One study published in Food Chemistry described licorice as having “antioxidant, free-radical scavenging, immunostimulating” properties. (19Licorice root benefits a sore throat or cough immensely as an effective expectorant, helping to loosen and expel mucus that the cough is trying to eliminate. Its soothing demulcent, anti-inflammatory properties can bring fast relief for sore throat. Demulcents need to make contact with the part of the body that needs to be soothed, so extracts in cough drops and syrups, as well as tea, are most effective. (20)

Womens Health 
Licorice root also appears to have an estrogen-like effect in women, lending itself as an option for menstrual- and fertility-related concerns, including as a natural remedy for PMS. (21) For treatment of menopause, licorice was shown in a Health Care for Women International study to be better than hormone replacement therapy at reducing the duration of hot flashes. (22).
