Licorice/Athimadhuram Health Benefits

Licorice Root

Licorice is an age old herb used in ayurveda to build immunity. It is emerging as a prominent player in the search for treatment and prevention for diseases like hepatitis C, HIV and influenza in today’s time.

The Chinese Journal of Virology published a review that confirms the antiviral activity of licorice root due to its triterpenoid content. Another 2010 publication notes licorice’s antioxidant, free radical-scavenging and immunostimulating effects.

Some more licorice root benefits include:

  • Sore throat remedy for fast relief
  • Cough natural remedy
  • Protection against leaky gut signs and symptoms
  • Reduce adrenal fatigue
  • Pain relief
  • soothe gastrointestinal problems.
  • In cases of food poisoning, stomach ulcers, and heartburn, licorice root extract can speed the repair of stomach lining and restore balance.
  • Prevents tooth decay

Include licorice in your food everyday to get rid of the above issues.
