Allergy Research Liquorice Solid Extract contains a solid extract of liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) in a base of vegetable glycerin. Liquorice root is thought to be an effective expectorant, and has been used for this purpose since ancient times, especially in Ayurvedic medicine. Modern cough syrups often include liquorice extract as an ingredient. Additionally, liquorice may be useful in conventional and naturopathic medicine for both mouth ulcers and peptic ulcers.
Liquorice may also have an adaptogenic effect which could help regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. It can also be used for auto-immune conditions including lupus, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis and animal dander allergies.
In traditional Chinese medicine, liquorice is commonly used in herbal formulae to "harmonize" the other ingredients in the formula and to carry the formula into all 12 of the regular meridians and to relieve a spasmodic cough.
