History reveals that liquorice was first documented in Assyrial clay tablets (c.a. 2500 B.C.E.) and Egyptian papyri. In Germany, liquorice root is licensed as standard medicinal tea for the relief of bronchial cough due to congestion in the upper respiratory tract. The main active substance is glycyrrhizinic acid, which has shown to accelerate the healing of gastric ulcers. The root naturally contains at least 4% glycyrrhizin, a compound that is about fifty times sweeter than sucrose.

I have included liquorice root in my herbal teabag range because it is a valuable alternative for the natural relief of mouth, gastric and intestinal ulcers. As a tea it makes an excellent adults-only herbal remedy for the relief of pain and discomfort of cramp-like disorders associated with chronic gastritis.
