Licorice plants grow in the wild from Eastern Asia, through the Middle
East, and all the way to the Mediterranean region of Southern Europe and Northern Africa. Licorice root is among the most widely used herbs in the Chinese, Japanese Kampo, Indian Ayurvedic, Unani, and European systems of traditional herbal medicine (THM).
Organic licorice root
For maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly
prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract. Drink 3-6 cups daily between meals. Sweeten with honey if desired.
Duration of use: Unless directed by your healthcare provider, licorice root tea should not be taken daily for longer than 4-6 weeks.
Contraindications: Cardiovascular-related disorders such as high blood pressure, potassium deficiency (hypokalemia), impaired kidney or liver functions, cirrhosis of the liver, and pregnancy.
Interactions: Potassium loss may occur when taking licorice root tea at the same time as other drugs, such as thiazide- and loop-diuretics. Potassium loss, resulting from excessive use of licorice root, may increase the action of cardiac glycosides and interact with antiarrhythmic drugs.
Pregnancy and lactation: Not to be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding unless directed by your pre- or post-natal healthcare provider.
Side effects: Prolonged use of excessive doses may lead to
mineralocorticoid effects in the form of electrolyte imbalance (sodium retention and potassium loss) accompanied by hypertension, edema and suppression of the renin-angiotensinaldosterone system. In rare cases, hypokalemic myopathy may occur.
