Description

Health Benefits of Licorice

Licorice root (also liquorice root) is the root and underground stems of an herbaceous perennial plant Glycyrrhiza glabra. Greek, Egyptians, Chinese and other Asian nations have been using Licorice root for flavouring, confectionery applications and medicinal purposes for centuries. It is also known as sweet root and Gan Zao in Chinese.

Licorice Root contains a number of healthy compounds such as flavonoids, volatile oils, plant sterols, coumarins, glycosides, asparagine, chalcones, glycyrrhizic acid and anethole. Licorice Root is known for its antiviral, antibacterial, antiinflammatory, antispasmodic, antioxidant, antidepressant, demulcent and expectorant activity.

A key compound in Licorice Root, glycyrrhizic acid, may raise blood pressure levels when used in large quantities on regular basis.

Health Benefits of Orange Peel

Hesperidin is an antioxidant found in oranges and there are very high levels of it in the peel. Hesperidin helps protect the heart by lowering blood pressure and regulating cholesterol levels. Orange peel will help to reduce chronic inflammation in the body, which can help with many different health conditions like heart disease, arthritis, and cancer.

Spice Up Your Health

Cinnamon: Obtained from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamomum. Help keep your arteries healthy, manage blood sugar levels, and lower cholesterol. Also possesses powerful antiviral properties

Clove: Cloves are the aromatic dried flower buds of a tree in the family Myrtaceae, Syzygium aromaticum. Cloves are native to the Maluku islands in Indonesia and used as a spice in cuisines all over the world.

Cloves are used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine, Chinese medicine, and western herbalism and dentistry where the essential oil is used as an anodyne (painkiller) for dental emergencies. Cloves are used as a carminative, to increase hydrochloric acid in the stomach and to improve peristalsis. Cloves are also said to be a natural anthelmintic. The essential oil is used in aromatherapy when stimulation and warming are needed, especially for digestive problems. Topical application over the stomach or abdomen are said to warm the digestive tract. Clove oil, applied to a cavity in a decayed tooth, also relieves toothache.

  1. BuckeyeBrew

    I have been searching for a loose leaf tea similar to a throat coat tea made by a different company, and this is very similar yet much more flavorful. I like to make this a bit on the strong side, and the sweet licorice and spicy cinnamon lend themselves nicely to a flavorful cup of tea. I enjoy this tea on cold winter mornings and evenings and when I have a sore throat. Divinitea definitely has a great variety of organic loose leaf teas and fast shipping!

    This is my favorite tea to drink before bed. I enjoy the delicate balance of spices and sweet licorice, and the smell is so warm and comforting on cold evenings.
