Licorice can raise your blood pressure, and is most effective when used as a potentiator for other herbs in a blend. Do use it with caution and be alert to its possible side effect re BP ... it's a much more powerful and beneficial herb than most people give it credit for, usually dismissing it as a flavoring for candy. Not on this site, natch, but out there in the RW ...So far I have liquorice and peppermint on my list of herbs.
Huh?Note that liquorice root powder is less powerful than liquorice powder (which is what I use). Liquorice powder is an extract from the root.
