What Is Licorice Root?
Licorice plants grow in the wild from Eastern Asia, through the Middle East, and all the way to the Mediterranean region of Southern Europe and Northern Africa. Licorice root is among the most widely used herbs in the Chinese, Japanese Kampo, Indian Ayurvedic, Unani, and European systems of traditional herbal medicine (THM).
How Does It Work?
There are a range of traditional uses for licorice root tea stemming from several of the world's systems of THM. Ask your licensed acupuncturist, medical herbalist or naturopathic physician if licorice root tea is right for you.
How Does It Taste?
Organic Licorice Root tastes pleasantly sweet.
For maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover up and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components tat will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract. Drink 3-6 cups daily between meals. Sweeten with honey if desired.
Duration of Use:
Unless directed by your healthcare provider, licorice root tea should not be taken daily for longer than 4-6 weeks.
Cardiovascular-related disorders such as high blood pressure, potassium deficiency (hypokalemia), impaired kidney or liver functions, cirrhosis of the liver and pregnancy.
Potassium loss may occur when taking licorice root tea at the same time as other drugs, such as thiazide-and loop-diuretics. Potassium loss, resulting from excessive use of licorice root, may increase the action of cardiac glycosides and interact with antiarrhythmic drugs.
Pregnancy and Lactation:
Not to be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding unless directed by your pre- or post-natal healthcare provider.
Prolonged use of excessive doses may lead to mineralocorticoid effects in the form of electrolyte imbalance (sodium retention and potassium loss) accompanied by hypertension, edema and suppression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. In rare cases, hypokalemic myopathy may occur.
