Licorice Root Powder, organic, half pound
Licorice is sweet and nourishing and is regarded in Ayurvedic medicine as a lung tonic. It is both demulcent and an expectorant. It achieves this by moistening vata and liquefying kapha. The frequently used term in Ayurveda is "unctous property." The use in other systems of medicine differs somewhat. Licorice is taken for adrenal insufficiency. It is an anti-inflammatory and antiulcer herb, somewhat more preferred by men than women since excessive amounts have been associated with hirsutism. In moderation, there is no risk of this. In any event, use should be cautious since licorice can promote fluid retention.
