is a traditional remedy used to relieve chronic gastric issues, heal ulcers and soothe heartburn through its demulcient or mucilage forming properties. Its anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties make it ideal for relieving respiratory conditions. It has been widely used throughout history; the troops of Alexander the Great used it for stamina, as it has mild adaptogenic properties. It was also used in the middle ages to balance spicy foods and was even used by the Egyptians as a drink flavouring. Its delightful flavour has been widely utilized throughout the ages. It is a sweetener that finds its way into herbal teas, liquor, candy, tobacco, beer, soft-drinks, and pharmaceutical products. In fact, glycyrrhizin (the sweet compound) is 50 times sweeter than sucrose! Licorice produces clusters of lupin-like flowers that will eventually develop into a medicinal fruit.
