Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
 
This whole root has not been processed to remove glycyrrhizic acid. When glycyrrhizin is removed from Licorice, the product is called deglycyrrhizinated licorice or DGL.

Licorice root has been used since ancient times, across many cultures as food and as medicine. In Chinese medicine, Licorice is an ingredient in nearly all herbal formulas for the traditional purpose of "harmonizing" the separate herbs involved. This important tonic herb is often called 'the grandfather of herbs'.

Chinese Medical practitioners believe that Licorice is such a good harmonizing herb because it protects the body from the effect of some of the stronger herbs that may be added in some Chinese herbal formulas. It does this by protecting the liver cells from free-radical damage. By doing so it also augments the liver's ability to process toxins.
