Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae)

In ancient times Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) was used by Egyptians as a beverage and a pharmaceutical. Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) root, or sweet root, can help to keep your lungs clear, your digestive tract calm, your colon cleansed and your adrenal gland functioning properly. It has also been known to be a reliable and pleasant way to soothe a sore throat. In herbal medicine, it was used to treat skin disease, coughs, colds, bronchitis, eye conditions and hair loss. Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) extract has been determined to contain anti-viral properties and has been used to treat the viral family of herpes such as chicken pox, shingles, genital or labial herpes, shingles and cold sores. Modern herbalists use Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) to sustain adrenal function and treat adrenal insufficiencies, including hypoglycemia and Addison’s disease. It is also used to purify the liver, helping in the defense against liver disease, such as cirrhosis and hepatitis (under a physician’s care). Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) root contains anti-depressant compounds and is an excellent alternative medicine to St. John’s wort. Its aspirin-like action is helpful in relieving fever and soothing the pain of headaches. The phytoestrogens have a mild estrogenic effect, making it useful in treating menstrual pain and the symptoms of PMS and menopause. It has also been used to lessen the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and fibromyalgia.
For thousands of years, Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) Root has been used as a superior expectorant that is primarily used for respiratory problems. The herb helps loosen phlegm and ease congestion and cough by helping to loosen and thin mucus in the airways. It is believed that the herbal tincture can fight viruses that cause respiratory illness and an overproduction of mucus in the body. Its active constituents may help to soothe and coat irritated respiratory tracts, while the anti-viral properties may help to shorten the duration of upper-respiratory infection. Additionally, the UMMC has acknowledged that the use of Licorice extract’s traditional use for asthma may hold merit for this use. Its anti-allergenic effect is found to be very useful for hay fever, allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis and bronchial asthma.
Estrogenic compounds are also active components of Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) extracts. The compounds dianethole, anethole, and photoanethole. These enhance the production and release of the reproductive hormones, like estrogen, progesterone, and prolactin. Illness is sometimes related to these hormones, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome. The herb may be potentially useful for the treatment of menstrual abnormalities, or PMS, with bloating, nausea, menstrual cramps, irritability and breast tenderness. It has been found to have some success in the treatment of menopause symptoms, including exhaustion, mood swings and hot flashes, by helping to balance the hormones in the body. Most women experience a yeast infection at one time or another caused by Candida albicans. Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) root extracts have shown to be effective for the treatment of this and other yeast infections.
There has been some research done that shows the benefits of Glycyrrhizic acid, contained in Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) root, which may help with nervousness and depression by encouraging the function of the adrenal glands. Our adrenal glands control the stress hormones, including cortisol. When the stress hormone levels are low it can often be a cause for melancholy, persistent fatigue, anxiety and you may have less of a resistance to infections and disease. Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) also happens to have the Asparagine amino acid that needs to preserve the equilibrium of the body’s nervous system.
Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) is a great support for good digestion and healthy gastrointestinal system. As a demulcent, it soothes the mucous membranes and protects the stomach and intestines. It has been known to coat the stomach’s lining with a mucus, rather than restraining the secretion of gastric acid and reduce the activity of pepsin. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice may fight ulcers as effectively as prescription drugs when it is combined with antacids, according to the UMMC. Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) may also help to protect those who are taking aspirin from stomach ulcers, as aspirin tend to irritate the lining of the digestive tract and may contribute to this condition. This herb may also protect the colon and has been used in herbal medicine to treat ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease and gastritis. Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) is an old, mild laxative that is also known to cleanse the colon. This herb has a cleansing stimulant that is effective in removing toxins and wastes from the body.
Research shows that Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) root may control the cholesterol levels by enhancing the body’s flow of bile. It also has an anti–oxidant action that may enhance capillary health and hinder the growth of arterial plaque. A study found that people who take up to 900 mg of Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) flavonoid for 8 weeks showed a remarkable decrease in body fat, body weight, LDL cholesterol levels and body mass index. However, people who take more than 20 g/day, may raise blood levels of the hormone aldosterone, which can cause serious side effects such as a headache, heart problems, and high blood pressure.
An antiviral, Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) has been utilized by modern herbalists to combat viruses, including herpes simplex, sores, and shingles. Several studies have shown that the anti-viral action of Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) root extract may suppress the return and progression of cold sores due to the herpes virus. When applied in an oil or salve, it may relieve symptoms of itching, redness, and swelling of lesions.
Several different pastes, creams, and gels are made with Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) extract to treat psoriasis, eczema, skin rashes and itchy, dry skin. A small medical study has shown that the demulcent and anti-inflammatory agents in the herbal extract of Licorice may decrease the signs of atopic dermatitis (eczema). For age spots use ½ a lemon. 2 Tbls sugar, 2 Tbls. Olive Oil & 2 drops Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) root extract. Massage 10 minutes on the skin for age spots.

Sladić – kralj lekovitih biljaka
Sladić ili slatki koren (Glycyrrhiza glabra) veoma je lekovita i neobično dragocena biljka. Zahvaljujući svom vrlo složenom sastavu, deluje na organe za disanje i varenje, jača odbarambene sposobnosti organizma i popravlja raspoloženje.
Sladić sadrži više od 150 hemijskih jedinjenja koja doprinose očuvanju optimalnog zdravstvenog stanja kao što su aminokiseline, beta-karoten, vitamini, ugljeni hidrati, masti, proteini. Analizama je utvrđeno da je glicirizinska kiselina, materija koja slatkom korenu daje snažan sladak ukus, više od 50 puta slađa od saharoze. Slatki koren sadrži oko 10% glicirizinske kiseline, glicirizin, glikozu i druge komponente i zbog toga je sastojak mnogih lekova kao što su sirup za kašalj ili lekovi za čir. Biljka sadrži i flavonske glikozide i etarsko ulje u tragovima. Od davnina se koristi za smirenje kašlja i upale grla. Razlaže nagomilanu sluz i pospešuje njeno izbacivanje iz disajnih organa. Čaj od sladića se posebno preporučuje osobama koje pate od upale jezika. Sladić je jedno od najefikasnijih biljnih lekova kod upala želudačne sluzokože, gastritisa i čira na želucu i dvanaestopalačnom crevu. Pomešan sa bokvicom, kantarionom i matičnjakom preporučuje se svima koji pate od čira na želucu.
Sprečava razmnožavanje virusa i njihovo širenje u organizmu, pa se koristi kod brojnih virusnih infekcija uključujući hepatitis, prehladu i grip (posebno u kombinaciji sa matičnjakom, zovom i klekom). Lekari, međutim, upozoravaju na to da slatki koren treba umereno koristiti jer prekomerno konzumiranje može dovesti do pojačanog izlučivanja kalijuma i zadržavanja natrijuma i vode u organizmu što doprinosi povećanju krvnog pritiska i hipokalemije. Zato je veoma važno pridržavati se propisanih doza i ne piti čaj od sladića duže od 6 nedelja u kontinuitetu. Dok pijete čaj od sladića, smanjite unos soli i jedite puno zelenog povrća i sušenih kajsija.
Sladić je dobar hormonalni balanser, posebno u kombinaciji sa zečjom stopom, klekom i žalfijom. Sladić utiče i na proces pretvaranja testosterona u dehidrotestosteron, pa se preporučuje muškarcima koji pate od uvećanja prostate ili opadanja kose.
Slatki koren upotrebljava se u kineskoj tradicionalnoj medicine već 2000 godina. Slavni lekar iz dinastije Ming Li Šidžen u svojoj medicinskoj enciklopediji „Ben Cao Gang Mu“ zapisao je da „gan cao“ (kako se sladić zove u Kini) blagotvorno deluje na 72 vrste upala i da otklanja 1200 vrsta otrova iz tela.
Tradicionalni kineski čaj od slatkog korena i osušene kore mandarine
60 g svežeg slatkog korena i 30 g osušene kore mandarine dobro operite i stavite u keramički lonac sa 200 g šećera. Dodajte vodu da sastojci u njoj ogreznu. Kuvajte 30 minuta, pa procedite. Ponovo kuvajte koren i sušenu koru mandarine 20 minuta, pa opet procedite i dodajte prethodno spremljenom čaju. Postupak ponovite još jednom i pomešajte sva tri čaja. Ovaj čaj se koristi protiv upale grla, ali je veoma delotvoran i za osobe koje naprežu grlo, kao što su nastavnici i pevači. Lekari tradicionalne medicine predlažu da osobe koje boluju od hronične upale grla piju dva puta dnevno po 15 do 20 g ovog čaja.
