This licorice syrup contains extract of licorice root (Glycyrrhiza
glabra) in a base of vegetable glycerin.
Licorice has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial,
anti-viral, antiulcer, and antifungal properties. In Germany, licorice
extract is used for the treatment of ulcers and for upper respiratory
tract infections. And in Japan, one of its components is used in the
treatment of chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver, owing to its
protective effect on liver cells.
Licorice is believed to boost hormone production, including secretin
and other hormones in the GI tract and brain. Because
of its action on the adrenal glands, licorice is often used by
nutritionally oriented physicians to treat chronic fatigue syndrome,
fibromyalgia, and other disorders affected by the body's levels of
cortisol, the main adrenal hormone. The herb can also be taken for
virtually any condition involving inflammation.
We have found that licorice works especially well in when taken
together with Vinpocetine to provide
optimal neurological support.
This form has the consistency of honey and tastes like
