THE BENEFITS OF LICORICE OR MULETHI
The benefits of Licorice or Mulethi
Commonly known as licorice, popular in Chinese and Ayurveda used to help alleviate health problems. It has phytochemicals, flavonoids and xenoestrogens. I use t a lot to treat my menopausal women and support them with symptoms during this phase –
- It helps regulate hormones and control hot flashes, nausea, mood swings
- Glycyrrhizin is a saponin found in roots of this plant, which gives it its sweet taste. This portion of the plant also supports anti-microbial activity, therefore protects against viruses. Great for coughs, colds – I get a mix from the Patanjali brand for my throat – works always!
- Supports cortisol levels, therefore your adrenal glands and protects the brain
