In this video, Dr. Berg talks about Licorice Root and its benefits. There are two adrenal glands on top of the kidneys, the inside is all neurological tissue that produces adrenalin, noradrenaline, dopamine, neurotransmitter which are hormone-like while the outside is a granular tissue that produces three hormones. Cortex stimulate a hormone called mineralocorticoids that helps balance sodium and potassium. Licorice root will help inhibit high levels of cortisol and is really good for inflammation. But too much licorice extract could develop an excess amount of mineralocorticoids and you can start losing potassium and retaining sodium.

Benefits of Licorice Root:
• Anti-ulcer
• Gastritis
• Viral Hepatitis – especially the type that is autoimmune
• Anti-Inflammatory
• Coughing
• Adaptogen – helps with stress by balancing cortisol
