Licorice or Liquorice
Sweet Root, Liquinzia, Reglissa, Sweet Wood, Black Sugar, Gan-cao
Glycyrrhiza glabra

Family: FABACEAEA

The botanical name for licorice, Glycyrrhiza glabra, means sweet root, because it is very sweet about 50 times sweeter than sucrose. Licorice contains a substance called glycyrrhizin. This explains why Hippocrates named it “Sweet Root” liquorice is also commonly known as Sweet Wood and Black Sugar [1] .

Licorice is a special favourite of mine for treating adrenal exhaustion, anxiety, depression, irritability and stress-related conditions as I have seen some amazing recoveries.



Flowers of the Liquorice plant

 



Licorice root is used to sweeten foods and drinks and to flavour beer and condition and flavour tobacco. Hundreds of tons of licorice are used by all countries today for food, medicines, beverages, pills, confections and lozenges. It is well known for the traditional licorice lollies.

Licorice is a hardy variable perennial legume bush that grows to 1.5 metre high, sometimes called a “survival food”. It’s roots grow deep into the soil and are the part used for conditions as well as flavouring.
