In Ayurveda, it is used primarily as a lung tonic due to its demulcent effects. In moderation, licorice improves digestion and relieves ulcers as well as chronic bowel problems such as Crohn's disease. Licorice is an ingredient in many Chinese formulations where it supports harmony between the other herbs and minimizes the risk of allergic reactions. It is also an ingredient in the Hoxsey tonic which we produce under the name of Sundance Elixir.

It is used mainly for toothaches and gums in mouthwashes and for wound healing and sprains externally. Studies suggest that it helps to maintain correct blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
