Health benefits of Licorice root

Licorice is a remedy that has been used for years to treat a variety of ailments. But also it is recommended not to be used for some persons. Due to its sweet flowers, licorice has been also used as a sweeter.

Who should not use Licorice root?          
Licorice should not be used by persons with diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, blood pressure, or those who have had strokes. It should not be taken by those with severe menstrual problems or who are pregnant. It should not be used over seven days; for it can cause high blood pressure, even in those who have low or normal pressure. In addition, extended use can result in water retention or low potassium levels.

Health Benefits
1.Licorice is primarily used for bronchial problems, coughs, hoarseness, mucous congestion, and similar problems. For hoarseness and throat problems, combine it with sage, ginger, horehound and coltsfoot. It can also be taken for stomach problems, such as peptic ulcers and bladder and kidney ailments.

3.It is excellent for all kinds of stomach and intestinal ulcers.

4. It fights inflammation and viral, bacterial and parasitic infection.

5.It is a specific for colds, flu, and lung congestion, and is frequently added to cough syrups.

10.Add it to other herbal medicines (and even drug medications), to make them more palatable. Use it for respiratory tract infections. It protects against atherosclerosis.

11.Licorice stimulates the production of interferon and may help inhibit replication of HIV. There is also evidence that may prevent hepatitis C from causing liver cancer and cirrhosis.

12. Licorice extract has been shown to have activities similar to those of cortisone and, to a lesser extent, estrogen. It induces the adrenal cortex to produce larger amounts of cortisone and aldosterone. Glycyrrhizin, a chemical in licorice, has a chemical structure similar to human steroid hormones. Three other herbs (ginseng, wild yam and sarsaparilla) all of which combine well with licorice, also have hormone-like substances in them.

One day I was in the river thinking about where I can go to get a solution. so a lady walked towards me telling me why I'm so sad and I open everything by telling her my problem, she told me she could help me, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medicines to cure the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS and gave me your email, so I sent you an email. He told me everything I had to do and also gave me instructions to take, which I followed correctly.
