If someone in your household has a cough, bronchitis or stomach complaints such as gastritis then licorice is a familiar, time-tested traditional remedy well worth having on hand. It’s even safe for small children age 4 and up and its delicious taste makes it a very popular remedy. Liquid candy? Well, not quite, but still worth enjoying.
Each ml contains 200 mg of organically grown licorice root and stolons (Glycyrrhiza glabra). It is a 1:5 root and stolon extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Licorice is sed in Herbal Medicine to help relieve inflammatory conditions of the digestive system.
For best results, take licorice extract on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Children aged 4-9: take 3 ml, 1 time per day.
Children aged 10-14: take 3 ml, 2 times per day.
Ages 15 and over: take 3 ml, 3 times per day.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of freshly boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, soothing drink!
