Product Details

Licorice (Mulethi) Capsules


The root is tonic, cooling, demulcent, expectorant, diuretic, emmenagogue and gentle laxative. The principal constituent of liquorice is glycyrrhizin (also known as glycyrrhizic acid), which is effective in the treatment of chronic hepatitis and liver cirrhosis. Glycyrrhizin inhibits liver cell injury but does not reverse reduced protein synthesis. Liquorice is also used for the treatment of asthma, acute and chronic bronchitis, chronic cough, hoarseness and sore throat and to reduce fever. Glycyrrhizin stimulates the secretion of the adrenal cortex hormone “aldosterone”. This herb can be as effective as codeine, and safer, when used as a cough suppressant. It alleviates irritable conditions of the mucus membrane, strengthens immune system and provides resistance in recurring infections. Licorice is a very powerful antidepressant. At least eight licorice compounds are monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors. (MAO inhibitors are compounds capable of potent antidepressant action).
