History reveals that liquorice was first documented in Assyrial clay tablets (c.a. 2500 B.C.E.) and Egyptian papyri. Liquorice root has long been used for its sedative action on the coughing reflex and, in Germany, it is licensed as standard medicinal tea for the relief of bronchial cough due to congestion in the upper respiratory tract. 

Liquorice root is also a valuable alternative for the natural relief of gastric and intestinal ulcers. The main active substance is glycyrrhizinic acid, which has shown to accelerate the healing of gastric ulcers. The root naturally contains at least 4% glycyrrhizin, a compound that is about fifty times sweeter than sucrose. As a tea it makes an excellent  herbal remedy for the relief of pain and discomfort of cramp-like disorders associated with chronic gastritis.
