FairWild Certified Organic Licorice Root
The global supply of licorice root is wild collected (not grown on farms) by local people mainly in the countries of Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and the western frontier regions of China.
The organic licorice root in this tea is independently certified according to the FairWild Standard and to the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) Wild-crop Harvesting Practice Standard.
- FairWild Certification helps to assure collectors receive a fair price for their crops and fair trade benefits for collector communities.
- USDA NOP Wild-crop Certification ensures that the harvesting or gathering will not be destructive to the environment and will sustain the growth and production of the wild crop.
Every tea bag in this box has been individually wrapped and sealed for freshness, ensuring that the beneficial components of the herbs remain intact.
Brew Well to be Well
For maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extracts. Drink 3 cups daily between meals. Sweeten with honey if desired
Duration of use: Unless directed by your healthcare provider, licorice root tea should not be taken daily for longer than 4-6 weeks.
Contradictions: Cardiovascular-related disorders such as high blood pressure, potassium deficiency (hypokalemia), impaired kidney or liver functions, cirrhosis of the liver, and pregnancy.
Potassium loss may occur when taking licorice root tea at the same time as other drugs, such as thiazide- and loop-diuretics. Potassium loss, resulting from excessive use of licorice root, may increase the action of cardiac glycosides and interact with antiarrhythmic drugs.
Do not use if pregnant or breast-feeding unless directed otherwise by your doctor.
Side effects: Prolonged use of excessive doses may lead to mineralocorticoid effects in the form of electrolyte imbalance (sodium retention and potassium loss) accompanied by hypertension, edema and suppression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. In rare cases, hypokalemic myopathy may occur.
