This is one of the most widely used herbs in western, Chinese and Ayurvedic herbalism. It works strongly on the endocrine/hormonal system, making it great for adrenal issues and exhaustion (and especially AddisonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s disease). Its soothing and healing effect on the digestive tract makes it most effective for stomach ulcers, gastritis and colic. Liquorice treats coughs and bronchitis by soothing the respiratory system and clearing mucous from the lungs.
