Jethimadh / Liquorice Root Powder
Known as Jethimadh powder, it is used as an expectorant and a carminative. Due to its natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, it is well regarded as a soothing demulcent to irritated membranes, and can help to relieve stomach and gastrointestinal bacterial imbalances and infections. Due to its soothing properties, it contains some mild laxative properties which can help aid digestive function.
Liquorice contains phytonutrients such as chalconoids and bioflavonoids which assist the body in assimilating and metabolising vitamin C. It also plays a role as a natural anti-depressant, due to its complementary effect on the function of the adrenal glands and regulating the cortisol synthesis process.
How to Use:
Adults (14 years and above), mix 1/2 teaspoons of Jethimadh powder with 2 teaspoons of honey and 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric. Mix into a paste and take without any water three times a day.
