Licorice root extract


Not to be confused with licorice candy which contains very little if any true licorice, licorice root has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. It is capable of fighting infection and reducing viral replication (possibly including HIV). It is a cleanser and detoxifier. From fighting tooth decay to cleansing the colon, licorice root has many benefits. However, it has many contraindications as well.

Contraindications: Should never be used during pregnancy (not that a pregnant woman should be trying to lose weight). Should not be used by people with diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, high blood pressure,severe menstrual problems or a history of stroke. If used for more than 7 days in a row, it can cause high blood pressure, water retention and low potassium levels in previously normal individuals.
