Licorice Root General Information
Since ancient times, Licorice root has been used both as a food and as medicine. In Chinese herbology it is an ingredient in almost all herbal formulas for the purpose of “harmonizing” the separate herbs involved. A member of the pea family, Licorice has a variety of active ingredients, one of which is glycyrrhizin. Glycyrrhizin has been found to possess anti-inflammatory, cough-suppressant, antiviral, estrogen-like and aldosterone-like activities. See Safety and Interaction section for more specific information.

Licorice Root Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Licorice is taken orally (DGL form) for ulcers, heartburn (esophageal reflux), and mouth sores. Other oral uses involving the whole herb is the treatment of coughs, asthma, and chronic fatigue syndrome. In its topical form (whole herb), Licorice can be used for eczema, psoriasis, and herpes. Scientific studies suggest regular use of DGL can heal ulcers as well as some over the counter medications; however, they must be taken regularly or the ulcer will return.

Licorice Root Dosage Information
Ulcer Pain - chew two to four 380-mg tablets of DGL before meals and at bedtime in conjunction with conventional medical care.
Mouth Sores - Sucking on the tablets will relieve the pain. For best results, follow the directions listed on the label.
Respiratory Problems - Take orally 1 to 2 g of licorice root 3 times daily, not to exceed a week.
Eczema, psoriasis, or herpes - Apply licorice cream to affected area twice daily.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - This treatment must be taken under a physician’s supervision to be given the needed dosage for the best possible effects.

Licorice Root Safety & Interaction Information
Whole licorice root can cause aldosterone-like activities such as fluid retention, high blood pressure, and potassium loss when taken at dosages exceeding 3 g daily for more than 6 weeks. Licorice in the DGL form (deglycyrrhizinated licorice) does not cause aldosterone-like activities; however, it is not clear DGL provides the same benefits as whole licorice. One possible side effect for men is reduced testostorone levels. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known at this time. People taking Digitalis, Thiazide or loop diuretics, corticosteroid treatments could experience negative side effects. People using aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs while taking Licorice regularly might lower the risk of ulcers.
