Licorice: Antioxidant with digestion strengthening effects.
Every ingredient we use is research backed. We found more than 1,857 studies on Licorice — here's what matters:
- A powerful combination of peony root, bupleurum root, Chinese licorice root, and cyperus rhizome effectively improved the symptoms of PMS related depression, by helping to regulate Glu/GABA balance in the central nervous system, specifically by affecting neurotransmitters and receptors responsible for mood, memory, and other mental health conditions.
- When used in combination therapy, licorice root was effective at decreasing abnormal uterine bleeding in women with PCOS.
Licorice is known for its wide variety of uses as an anti-inflammatory, but in particular we use it here for its digestive and harmonizing properties. In particular, licorice has been shown to be an effective treatment for a wide range of symptoms including abdominal fullness, bloating, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, and loss of appetite. Preparing the licorice with honey is a traditional method used to further increases its digestion harmonizing properties.
