Licorice for children: tasty treatment

Medicinal plant licorice is used by folk healers and is recognized as official medicine. Most often it is prescribed in the form of syrup and teas, infusions and broths, candies and pastilles from cough. It is positioned as an effective remedy for respiratory diseases. But not only cold helps the root of licorice. It has a lot of useful properties. And in pediatrics it is used quite widely. But there are also contraindications. How to properly use this healing herb to treat children?

Licorice and liquorice are two names of one plant. Who did not eat sweet licorice sticks? And there are few people who did not drink in childhood from a cough tasty aromatic syrup from the root of licorice.

Both the treat and the medicine are prepared from the herbaceous plant Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice naked) of the Legume family. The liquorice grows mainly on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, in Central Asia, Kazakhstan, and the Caucasus. It grows along paths and roads, forming lush green thickets.

The leaves are sticky. Flowers are white or violet (collected in clusters), fruits – beans. With its thick, ramified root, the licorice grows 3-4 meters (and sometimes even 5 m) into the ground. In medicine, they use it primarily. Culinary specialists have found application to the aboveground parts of the grass: extracts and powders are obtained from them.

Licorice, as a medicinal plant, has been known for several millennia. This is evidenced by references to it in the ancient papyri of Egyptians and herbalists of Chinese healers. As spice and delicacy it began to be used in the eighteenth century.


I gave birth to a licorice root with a licorice root, but for some reason my grandfather-doctor does not like the root of licorice, he does not recommend it for the kids, but he does not forbid it either.

Licorice is a curative plant recognized by the official medicine as an effective tool for the treatment and prevention of respiratory, digestive and cardiovascular, nervous and endocrine diseases. But it also has contraindications for use. Especially it concerns the use of licorice in pediatric practice. Therefore, before treating your baby with a licorice root, be sure to consult a precinct pediatrician about this.

Mother of a wonderful son. I am interested in issues of health, development and upbringing of children.
