In Traditional Chinese Practice, licorice is known as “The Great Detoxifier”, and has been used primarily to help support the kidneys, liver, spleen and stomach.
Licorice root has been used by traditional herbalists as a general tonic and for respiratory support. Its support for the liver is well documented.

It has a reputation for helping the entire body maintain balance (particularly helpful to women who menstruate) and promoting well-being.
