Best price Chinese herb medicine organic licorice powder
Liquorice (British English) or licorice (American English) is the root of Glycyrrhiza glabra from which a sweet flavour can be extracted. The liquorice plant is an herbaceous perennial legume native to southern Europe and parts of Asia, such as India. It is not botanically related to anise, star anise, or fennel, which are sources of similar flavouring compounds. Liquorice flavours are used as candies or sweeteners, particularly in some European and Middle Eastern countries. Liquorice extracts have been used in herbalism and traditional medicine. In traditional Chinese medicine, liquorice (G. uralensis) is believed to "harmonize" the ingredients in a formula. Liquorice has been used in Ayurveda for rejuvenation, and in the belief it may aid jaundice or other diseases. It is used as an expectorant in traditional medicine in Egypt.
