I'm curious about this stuff. I was initially prescribed it by a naturopth for alleged adrenal issues. I turned out to not have adrenal problems at all once I switched caffeine for l-tyrosine and DLPA supplements. I ended up taking WAY too much and had massive swelling in my legs.
So I won't take THAT much again. xD
But I'm curious about it because it seems like a safe, 'natural' sweet plant in.. needless to say... SMALLER DOSES. It is a plant... well, sugar cane is a plant too, lol. But I mean, I wonder if it's a good compliment to a primal diet?
I'd have to look it up, but I don't think it has any carbs.
Anyone here drink licorice root tea or add extract to their primal desserts?
I'm thinking that for me, given my blood sugar issues, if I'm going to use any sweetener, it's going to be stevia- or licorice.
So I'm curious about people's experiences with it.
