• Licorice root has a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine and other medical systems for a diverse range of conditions.
• Licorice is probably best known for its benefits to digestive health. The University of Maryland Medical Center and MedlinePlus, note a particular supplement that contains licorice and other well-known herbs for digestion, might help heartburn. The supplement, Iberogast, has been shown to reduce heartburn and related symptoms after taking one mg three times a day for four weeks.
