This has been helping me survive my low adrenal secretions/adrenal fatigue over the last 4 months. It makes a definite and marked difference. You have to measure to find the level that's right for you. Too low and I get back aches and poor, light sleep. Too high and I also get poor - deep and very short sleep. The amount I currently take is 7 caps after breakfast. I don't take this with milk as Dr Baschetti advised. I tried that by breaking and disolving the caps in milk, but it works just as well taken once after breakfast as capsules. One other point: I recently learned that my adrenal fatigue may be due to very poor glucose metabolism and accompanying chromium deficiency. Apparently these 2 factors could really overwork the adrenals. Given my family history that will be worth investigating. So basically I'm using licorice to manage my symptoms while continuing to search for root the cause of my exhausted adrenals.
I'm very satisfied with this Licorice Root. It has successfully fight the Herpes Virus. I've done some research on dosages, and anyone who takes this much not take more than 200mg daily, for a prolonged period of time. I would personally recommend splitting the capsule in four dosages, or preferably in three if you are able to figure out how to do it. Taking licorice root has downsides, for instance your body will retain salt/sodium, there for you must cut back very seriously on salt while taking this. Your body may also retain fluids (fluid retention). For those who have high blood pressure, it is highly inadvisable to take licorice root, and it might also be a good idea to discuss this with your doctor - hopefully they'll have the adequate knowledge.
best effect for me

Began taking as part of a PCOS management plan. I have had the most noticeable outward improvement (eg. hirsuitism) from these capsules. Which is a shame, because one should NOT take licorice long-term due to their particular diuretic effects. However I will likely be pulsing this product intermittently to help supplement the rest of my plan.

Whir are my other orders

This helped with my adrenal fatigue and energy level increased after 1-2 weeks of taking this daily, first thing in the morning. Also, it has an estrogenic effect, lowering testosterone, therefore helping to reduce body hair. I don't need to shave/tweeze as often and the hair grows it lighter and more thin - haven't lost excess amount of hair (on head) in shower or brush though. I still take this daily.
Hides your crazy

This product is fantastic for tempering one's response to stress. After a major life change I found myself experiencing a fight-or-flight mindset most days and getting angry at strangers. Now that I take licorice root daily, I'm more clear-headed and simple things that used to make me mad are easier to let go, or even ignore. Licorice root is *not* an antidepressant nor does it numb you, it just prevents your adrenal system from driving you to extremes. One interesting discovery: I am particularly sensitive to caffeine as I don't consume it daily. I have found that when I do have tea or soda, I'm likely to be moody later in the day. The licorice root seems to prevent the moodiness without counteracting the stimulant effect of the caffeine.
