Discussions that mention potassium

Fibromyalgia board

I googled licorice - wow, it sure seems like it can help a variety of health issues. I love licorice candy, but according to the article I read, licorice candy is flavored with anise oil, not the natural ingredients in licorice that are beneficial.

Also, the article stated not to take licorice for longer than 6 weeks because it can cause many problems, including high blood pressure, lack of potassium, etc. Sounds scary, so I'm not sure it's actually something that we should be taking for an extended time.

Blessings... are you taking this under a doctor's care or on your own?

What do you think?????

God bless, Jen
