As you might have guessed, these 4 Herbs we have been highlighting over the past Easter long weekend are all to help with supporting a healthy immune system. Now you might love the licorice in the supermarket, but the candy kind of licorice isn’t going to help you like a potent licorice herbal extract!
Herbalists have used licorice for centuries to reduce the stress placed on adrenal glands during highly stressful times, as a result of reducing cortisol, licorice supports the adrenal system by keeping it in balance. At this time with stress being more prevalent than ever, Licorice Herbal Extract will dramatically help to calm the nerves and stimulate adrenal secretions ensuring that normal functions are maintained. As a result of this, Licorice Herbal Extract also reduces the symptoms of ailments sensitive to cortisol levels, such as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
Licorice has many components that are used to build a healthy immune system, it has been used for centuries in herbal medicine and is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
It has also been used to treat a wide variety of inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema, contact dermatitis, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis and any irritation to the skin. The magic compound in licorice root is the main active component known as glycyrrhizin, which is transformed into glycyrrhizic acid in the gut. Supporting an overall healthy gut and immune system during times of stress will ensure your body stays balanced and you can pass through challenging times with more ease, serenity and overall wellbeing. This particular herb should not be used with high blood pressure or during pregnancy or lactation.
