Alleviates Cold and Respiratory Ailments
Licorice is a herbal remedy for some common ailments, like cold, sore throat, and bronchitis. Being an expectorant, it helps loosen the phlegm or mucus from the respiratory tract, and thereby, facilitates its expulsion. It can be equally effective in allergic conditions, like hay fever, bronchial asthma, and allergic rhinitis. Licorice extract can also be used to relieve fever and headaches.
