Licorice Root is one of the most overlooked of herbal remedies which is very sad because Licorice is beneficial for so many body systems and brings relief from so many ailments. First, it is an excellent alternative to St. John’s Wort and contains many anti-depressant compounds. Licorice appears to enhance immunity by boosting levels of interferon, a key immune chemical that fights off viruses. Licorice also contains powerful antioxidants and certain phytoestrogens that can perform some of the functions of the body’s natural estrogens, making it very helpful during menopause, and for relieving the symptoms of PMS. There has been no real evidence that these natural estrogens go to work in the body at any time except when there is a shortage of natural estrogens and the body needs additional estrogen.
