Mode of LICORICE ROOT Tea, Gastrointestinal inflammation action:

How does the ingredient in the drug work?

The ingredients come from the licorice plant and act as a natural mixture. About the plant itself:
- Appearance: perennial herb with large pinnate leaves and small, light blue to violet flowers growing in spikes; Strongly developed root system
- Occurrence: Mediterranean region
- Main ingredients: saponins (glycyrrhizic acid), flavonoids (liquiritin)
- Plant parts and preparations used: pressed juice, extracts and tinctures from the entire plant, but especially from the root
The saponins contained in the liquorice root are able, similar to soap, to reduce the surface tension of stubborn mucus and in this way to liquefy it. At the same time, the cilia are stimulated to beat faster, so that the liquid mucus is quickly removed. Chemically, glycyrrhizic acid is closely related to an endogenous substance that has an anti-inflammatory effect and can therefore also be used to treat inflammation.

What speaks against an application?

- Hypersensitivity to the ingredients
- High blood pressure
- Impaired kidney function
