Licorice has long been used in Ayurveda, as its constituents have the potential to treat various diseases. The role of licorice is not just limited to medicine; it is used in the food and confectionary industry as a sweetener, and is also referred to as 'sweet root'. Its extract is used as flavor enhancer. Chinese according to their traditional medicine consider licorice as an ingredient that harmonizes other components of a formula.
Licorice has myriad health benefits, ranging from helping to stabilize hormonal imbalance to the treatment of various disorders and diseases. Licorice has proven to be effective in the treatment of many skin conditions, including eczema. It soothes gastrointestinal disorders as it repairs the stomach lining due to the anti-inflammatory properties of its component 'glycyrrhizic acid'. It helps relieve stress and reduce insomnia. It also promotes respiratory health when consumed directly or in tea.
