- Helps relieve stress by stimulating the adrenal gland
- Promotes respiratory health
- Antibacterial properties help protect teeth and skin when applied topically
Licorice powder can be combined with oils or gel substances to create a topical creme for skin treatment, and can also be taken orally in small doses for the same purpose. It can also be taken in tea form for respiratory issues. A typical daily dose is about 1/2 teaspoon and licorice should not be used continuously as a supplement for longer than one month. Women who are pregnant or nursing, and individuals with hypertension, heart or kidney problems, and low potassium are advised to avoid consuming licorice.
