The two beneficial components of licorice root are known as glychrrhizin and flavanoids. Glycyrrhizin can work as an anti-inflammatory ingredient, while the flavanoids are super antioxidants! In traditional Chinese medicine, this ingredient is commonly used in liquid concoctions to help soothe coughs, sore throats, calm stomach inflammation and even help the growth of canker sores.
To brew this in a delicious tea, combine with chrysanthemum flowers, red jujube dates, goji berries and a few blocks of rock sugar for a mild sweetness! 😛
