Licorice root Is an adaptogenic plant that helps reduce stress and also benefits the digestive tract by reducing inflammation and irritation. Additionally, it's used to soothe gastrointestinal problems and can speed the repair of stomach lining and restore balance. This is due to the anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties of glycyrrhizic acid.
