What is Gan Cao Tang (Raw Licorice Root Liquid Tincture):

Gan Cao Tang (Raw Licorice Root Liquid Tincture) is a qi tonic which has a wide variety of actions:

  • it promotes efficient digestion— its sweet taste takes it to the Spleen where it builds qi/helps the body better process food and extract nutrients
  • it soothes muscle cramps and spasms of smooth muscle (i.e. relieves pain in certain contexts– see Shao Yao Gan Cao Tang formula)
  • moistens the Lung to address dry cough and wheezing (on the intake of breath)
  • clears heat and eliminates toxins— used topically for skin conditions such as lesions, erysipelas, eczema with redness and itching, etc… so in this context, you might add a bit of the liquid extract to a cream or lotion you are using to deal with a skin problem.
  • clears heat and eliminates toxins (2)— Use internally for sore throat and also as an antidote to a variety of different kinds of poisonings, (including food, herbs, herbicides and pesticide, drugs, and heavy metals)
  • it travels to all 12 acupuncture meridians in the body; because of the quality, Gan cao is widely used as a “harmonizer”. In other words, it is added to a formula recipe when there are many different herbs w/many different actions that need an outside agent to get them to blend together well and work their synergistic magic (gets them to “co-operate”, so to speak!). Gan cao is the go-to herb for this in Chinese Medicine. So, you might find this tincture useful if you are taking a lot of different supplements and you want a little something that helps meld them together and spread their effects more evenly throughout your body.
