GREAT for Weight Loss
One study found that the preparation of licorice reduces body fat. Fifteen people of normal weight consumed 3.5 g of licorice each day for 2 months. Body fat was measured before and after treatment. Licorice appeared to reduce body fat mass and suppress the hormone aldosterone.
Another study found that a topical preparation of glycyrrhetinic acid (a component of licorice) reduced the thickness of fat on the thigh in human subjects. A third study found that people who took 900 mg of licorice flavonoid oil daily for 8 weeks experienced reductions in body fat, body weight, body mass index, and LDL cholesterol levels.
Promotes a Healthy Liver
Our liver acts as a body’s filter by detoxifying our body off metabolic wastes, harmful pathogens, and environmental pollutants. An extracted form of multi aids in reducing and also protecting the liver against fatal diseases like liver cirrhosis and Hepatitis C.
Prevents Hair Loss
Licorice root is a phytoestrogen that functions as a natural reducer of testosterone and a blocker of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and androgen, which can otherwise get attached to the hair follicle leading to the shrinking of the hair follicle, cutting off blood and nutrient supply of hair and thus, in turn, leading to hair loss and pattern baldness.
Treats Chronic Fatigue
Owing to our busy lifestyles most people suffer from physical and mental stress disorders. Mulethi is an effective herb that regulates cortisol levels and prevents our adrenal glands from going overdrive and sinking to chronic fatigue and thus helps in reserving energy.
Maintains Oral and Dental Health
Licorice extract with its antimicrobial actions acts against Streptococcus mutans and thus in the process prevents biofilm and plaque formation and also treats existing cavities and gingivitis.
Acts as Internal Sun-blocking Agent
Licorice root is reported to have an active antioxidant, Licochalcone A, which aids in protecting your skin from sun UV irradiation damage from within and at the same time, strengthens the skin and body’s immune system.
The licorice root is highly regarded as a mild laxative that functions as an excellent stool softener without causing discomforting gripping of the intestine. Its pleasant sweet taste also makes it a great laxative herb for use with children and delicate individuals with weakened bowel motion.
Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition that can be treated well with the licorice root. When taken internally or applied topically as an extract, licorice root has been shown to alleviate skin redness, itching, and swelling caused by eczema by working systemically to lower the inflammation.
Treats Female Fertility Issues
Licorice regulates the serum testosterone levels in females and in-process addresses hormonal disturbances that could otherwise lead to complications like polycystic ovary and hirsutism. In addition, it also stimulates estrogen secretion and thus helps in treating female fertility issues.
Heals Canker Sores
Owing to its antimicrobial properties, licorice roots have been shown to heal canker sores, often caused by hormonal fluctuations, stress, and bacterial infections, by inhibiting the pathogenic microbial growth and regulating other physiological factors. Consuming a mixture of ½ tsp of the licorice root extract in 1/4th cup water 4 times a day reduces the size of canker sores significantly.
Soothes Kidney and Liver Inflammation
Thanks to its natural plant steroids and anti-inflammatory properties, Licorice has been found to treat liver and kidney inflammation by taking a holistic approach to soothing the body’s immune system.
Boosts the Immune System
Licorice roots boost the immune system of the body by stimulating superoxide dismutase (SOD), elevating interferon levels, producing natural hydrogen peroxide and thus in the process, charging the body’s immune army of white blood cells to fight off infection.
Licorice root is a rich source of a phytoestrogen, Glabridin, that up-regulates a powerful antioxidant, manganese superoxide dismutase, and thus in effect gives protection against diabetes.
Improves Cognitive Power
It is reported that the glabridin content of licorice root promotes the nervous functions and also optimally supports the adrenal glands which in turn, leads to better learning ability and memory.
Protects Against Prostate Cancer
The licorice root extract has been reported to contain ingredients that are effective in slowing the tumor cell growth, particularly that of prostate origin.
Lowers Harmful Blood Cholesterol
It is reported that being rich in antioxidants, Licorice helps to keep bad blood cholesterol or LDL at bay and thus aids in treating atherosclerosis and some cardiac disorders.
Useful for Peptic Ulcers
DGL is often suggested as a treatment for stomach ulcers. A few studies have found that DGL and antacids helped treat ulcers as well as some prescription drugs.
One animal study found that aspirin coated with licorice reduced the number of ulcers in rats by 50%. (High doses of aspirin often cause ulcers in rats.) In one study, licorice root fluid extract was used to treat 100 patients with stomach ulcers — 86 of whom had not improved with conventional medication — for 6 weeks. Ulcers disappeared in 22 people; 90% of participants got better.
GREAT for Upper Respiratory Infections (Cold, Cough)
Licorice is a traditional treatment for cough, asthma, and sore throat. One study found that gargling with licorice before getting anesthesia cut the incidence of a postoperative sore throat by half.
Dyspepsia (Indigestion, GERD)
Preliminary studies suggest that a specific herbal formula containing licorice, called Iberogast or STW 5, may help relieve symptoms of indigestion or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This herbal formula also contains peppermint and chamomile, two herbs often used for indigestion.
