Get Up and Moving With Freshly Milled Licorice
You are probably familiar with the candy, liquorice, but Licorice from Oregon’s Wild Harvest is not a sweet treat to sneak between meals, rather an herbal supplement that seeks to supports wakefulness, healthy joints, and body hydration. The sweet flavor extracted from the root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant is about 50 times sweeter than sugar, and has been used in cultures throughout human history. Alexander the Great and some Egyptian leaders gave licorice to their armies in the hopes that it would help quench thirst and keep their men from tiring.
Licorice contains the compound anethole and glycyrrhizin, which may support normal hormone balance and cortisol metabolism in the kidneys. This metabolic process is part of the normal passing of excess fluid from the cell in the body through the urinary tract. Licorice seeks to support this process and promote fluid retention. Licorice may also support mineralocorticoid activity for a healthy immune response to internal challenges, including healthy joints.
