Licorice is a popularly used flavoring in foods and medicines that comes from the root of the herb Glycyrrhiza glabra. Though licorice is commonly used in sweets, it is also made into a tea as a beverage and herbal remedy for a variety of illnesses. Licorice contains a compound called glycyrrhizin, which is thought to be responsible for its many health benefits. However, licorice may also cause some side effects. This herbal remedy should be used with caution and with the supervision of a doctor.



The University of Maryland Medical Center advises that licorice root tea is an herbal remedy for soothing sore throats and coughs. Licorice contains compounds that act as a demulcent or coating agent that soothes the lining of the throat to reduce soreness and irritation. This herb is also an expectorant that helps to remove phlegm and mucous from the throat and upper respiratory tract reducing congestion and coughing.



Herbal licorice root tea and other forms of the licorice herb contain antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. A study published in the "International Endodontic Journal" reports that licorice extract had a potent bactericidal effect against the cavity causing bacteria Enterococcus faecalis. It may also help to suppress other minor infections in the body and boost the immune system to help fight disease.



Licorice herb contains isoflavone and other compounds that can mimic the hormone estrogen in the body. It also contains glycyrrhizin, which can help to reduce testosterone hormone levels in the body. The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center notes that one of the uses for these properties of the herb is to help reduce menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, fatigue and headache pain.



The University of Maryland Medical Center notes that deglycyrrhizinated licorice herb is a suggested treatment for stomach or peptic ulcers. While the evidence for whether this works is not yet confirmed, licorice herb in tea and other forms is sometimes used to help treat ulcers in the lining of the digestive tract.



The compound glycyrrhizin has many positive health benefits; however, the University of Maryland Medical Center reports that it may also cause several side effects if excess licorice is ingested for long periods of time or if the individual is predisposed to some disorders. These unwanted side effects include hypertension or high blood pressure, headache pain and low potassium levels in the blood. Licorice may also have negative interactions with medications and should be used medicinally under the supervision of a doctor.
