Solgar Standardised Deglycyrrhised Licorice root extract. Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) root has a long and varied record of uses. It was and remains one of the most important herbs in traditional Chinese herbal practice.
Traditionally it has been used for soothing the digestive tract, respiratory issues, support hormonal balance, arthritis, allergies and fatigue. However, long term use of this traditional herb could cause hypertension and oedema. Hence Solgar has removed the “problem causing” part of glycyrrhizin thereby creating a product that is safe and effective for a prolonged period. It can still be used for the traditional uses.
