Licorice: The Sweet Deal for Ailments

Licorice: The Sweet Deal for Ailments(12th June 2021):

Nobody wants to suffer from a sore throat because it often comes with symptoms, as those in colds or influenza. Sometimes we may just experience a sore throat because of excessive exposure to dust or dry heat.

Well,…in such cases just gargling with salt water, drinking plenty of fluids, and other home remedies are not enough to reduce swelling and irritation. Your immune system needs to be naturally strengthened to fight off these symptoms…

Sounds a bit difficult to achieve? But it isn’t completely so if you are doing regular workouts and maintaining a healthy diet schedule!…And most importantly, if you already have made licorice one of your favourite herbal partners!

Yes! Licorice! You got it right!…

It’s not just a widely used sweetener in confectionary products…It is also a wonder root known for its amazing medicinal properties since centuries.

What’s more…this precious herbal supplement has hundreds of compounds within it that have proven anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunostimulating properties!

Unbelievable, isn’t?

The Four Wonders of Licorice

  • Treats Gastrointestinal Disorders:

Thanks to the active constituent glycyrrhizin and its powerful anti-inflammatory and adaptogenic properties, licorice is a one-shot remedy for gastritis! Glycyrrhizin acid helps suppress the toxic growth of bacteria (Helicobacter pylori) in the gut and reduces the secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Excessive secretion of hydrochloric acid may lead to the formation of peptic ulcers.

How does that affect our health?

Actually, licorice extracts naturally soothe the stomach lining, which reduces the intensity of ulcers and heartburns.

  • Prevents Overeating and Aids in Weight Management:

Since licorice root powder is packed with the goodness of fibre, essential nutrients and flavonoids, how about incorporating it within your regular diet schedule? Who knows?! It may play a vital role in your weight loss regimen too!

Weight loss?! Yep, you heard it right!

The root powder reduces the accumulation of LDL or bad cholesterol in the body, thereby improving your metabolism and satiating your frequent hunger pangs…

  • Manages Diabetes

By now you must have understood that this rejuvenative herb is a powerhouse of healthful nutrients and antioxidants!No wonder, it has a centuries-long repute of being the ultimate grandma’s secret health tip!

Some of us might be aware of the Phyto estrogenic compound called glabridin which imparts the sweet taste to the licoriceroot. But, did you know?…Glabridinalso plays a crucial role in helping to reduce the breakdown of starch into glucose, and manage the blood sugar levels in the body!

  • Promotes Skin Health and Cures Baldness

Licorice root extracts efficiently diminish oxidative damage, and flush out certain harmful toxins from the internal layers of the skin. They also increase blood circulation in the scalp and hair follicles, and facilitate new hair growth.

So, get ready to ward off scalp infections and skin problems like eczema and acne…Flaunt your spotless glowing skin, and leave everyone speechless!

Of course, the list doesn’t end here…Licorice has been traditionally used to treat mouth ulcers, blood impurities, cognitive impairment, respiratory troubles, hormonal imbalance, and more!

In the wake of coronavirus, let’s all do our bit by strengthening our immune system…

Now that you know how beneficial licorice can be for your health, please make it a point to include it in your regular diet. Consult a medical practitioner to know more about the recommended dosage for various kinds of ailments…

Please don’t hesitate to opt for products that may naturally keep yourselves and your loved ones safe!
