Nature's Sunshine Licorice contains 396mg of Licorice Root per capsule. It is a rich source of magnesium, silicon and sodium, and contains high amounts of chromium, cobalt, iron, potassium and niacin (B3). Licorice`s high mucilage content contributes to the herb`s effective soothing, anti-inflammatory qualities.

We know this herb for its wide use as a candy flavoring, but its value goes far beyond that. The dietary use of licorice goes back several thousand years by cultures throughout the world including the Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese and Hindus. It grows wild in southern and central Europe and is extensively cultivated in Russia, Spain, Persia and India. Licorice was so valued in ancient Egypt that even King Tutankhamen was buried with a supply!

Licorice is widely used as a flavouring, not only for confectionery (although most modern licorice candies are flavoured with anise) but also in cough drops, syrups, tonics and laxatives. It flavours certain kinds of beer, frozen dairy desserts, gelatines, puddings and meat products. The sweet root can be chewed as a special treat. Licorice is included in most Chinese herbal combinations to balance the other herbs and to promote vitality.

Licorice increases energy and reduces fatigue by lifting natural blood sugar levels. It is good for gastric inflammation. It increases the production of digestive fluids and bile, soothes mucus membranes, relieves pain and inflammation, relaxes muscle spasms, enables the body to expel phlegm, strengthens the adrenal glands, stimulates the adrenal cortex, lowers cholesterol, and acts as a mild laxative.

It is also used to treat respiratory complaints such as sore throat, hoarseness (used as a tea), relief of cough in bronchitis and bronchial catarrh. It`s soothing, healing qualities are found helpful in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis, colds, coughs, laryngitis and congestion.

Licorice is also particularly beneficial for gastrointestinal problems such as gastritis, peptic ulceration and excessive stomach acid.


Take two capsules with a meal three times daily.


Although licorice is a safe herb, some cautions are necessary when taking large doses for long periods of time. Licorice should be avoided in cases of high blood pressure or when taking digitalis. Vertigo (dizziness) and headaches are early symptoms of overuse of licorice.

Each Capsule Contains:

Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) 396mg
Also contains: Magnesium stearate (vegetable), silicon dioxide (powdered silica), gelatin, water.

Great for low blood pressure Review by
  • star

I have issues with low blood pressure and dizziness when standing - I find this product works well to control this and well as nourishing my adrenal glands. Better than the steroid my doctor prescribed for the same issue without the side effects.

licorice capsules Review by
  • star

I have suffered from GORD for over 8 years and had been taking omeprazole which did help when taken daily. I read up on the side effects of this drug and wanted to get off it so I started taking licorice root capsules. Two weeks now and my symptoms of GORD have dramatically decreased. I take two in the morning with food and two at night with food. I still get a little reflux with certain spicy foods and wine but hey who doesn't from time to time and at time. I would recommend licorice capsules but it is recommended if you suffer from high blood pressure, diabeties, low potassium and fluid retension then you should take the deglycrrhized licorice (DGL). Read up and give them a try if you want to get off losec etc.
