Does our licorice tincture cause high blood pressure?

, April 4, 2024 in

Our licorice tincture represents a 1g per 5mL dose and is therefore well within the threshold for safe use. While deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) extracts may be useful for ulcers, they do not possess the same anti-inflammatory, antiviral or hepatoprotective qualities as a whole herb extract. Furthermore when the tincture is used in combinations with other herbs it does not in our experience cause an increase in blood pressure nor edema.
