Liquorice root is another firm favourite here at Holistic Hounds - mainly because we just love the taste and can regularly be found chewing on a piece of it!
When it comes to it's benefits as a holistic medicine for animals, liquorice root is excellent at restoring balance, especially to the digestive system.
Liquorice root soothes your stomach, in cases of food poisoning, stomach ulcers, and heartburn, licorice root extract can speed the repair of stomach lining and restore balance.
This is due to the anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties of glycyrrhizic acid which can be found in liquorice root.
