Soothing, Harmonizing & Health Building

When you hear the word licorice, you think of candy, right? There are lots of licorice candies out there, but most “licorice” candies are actually flavored with anise oil! The original licorice stick wasn’t candy at all, but the dried root of the licorice plant!

Licorice’s Latin name, Glycyrrhiza, is Greek for “sweet root”. Glycyrrhizin in Licorice Root is 30-50 times sweeter than sugar. This venerable herb has a long and extensive history behind it.  Licorice Root was an ancient Greek cough remedy, it was used in China over 4,000 years ago for rejuvenation, in Egypt it was one of the items found in King Tutankhamun’s tomb, and Alexander the Great had his soldiers chew licorice root to stay healthy and hydrated. 

Today, Licorice Root is one of the most widely used herbs worldwide for health, and the most important herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine for harmonizing herbal combinations. 

Licorice Root has amazing adaptogen qualities that help our bodies in so many ways it’s hard to list them all. To have the benefits of one of Nature’s finest health benefiting herbs, you don’t have to be an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh or travel to China. You can have Cedar Bear’s alcohol-free Licorice Root to benefit your health and well-being right in your own home. 

Licorice Root has been used through the centuries for the respiratory system. It helps clear the upper respiratory tract, soothes the throat, helps the body produce healthy phlegm, and causes a mild expectorant coughing action to help clear the throat. 

Licorice Root is an adaptogen that supports the endocrine system and helps soothe and support the adrenal glands and helps the body adapt to stress. It supports estrogen and testosterone levels in the body and supports female hormonal systems. 

Licorice Root benefits the entire digestive system. It soothes the stomach and intestinal tissues and helps protect the stomach lining. This helps with what is often called leaky gut. Licorice Root is a mucous membrane moistener, hydrates the body, and helps the body hold on to fluids. (Do not exceed use instructions on the bottle. With Licorice Root, “too much of a good thing” can cause excess fluid retention and raise blood pressure.)
