Licorice Root Powder is one of the most valuable herbal medicines, praised by ancient herbalists who used it on both humans and animals.
Approximately 30 percent of licorice's dry weight is made up of antibacterial and anti-fungal compounds. Licorice Root has the ability to harmonize with other herbs, especially Aloe Vera and its taste is not unpleasant to most horses.
1 tablespoon added to damp feed daily (500kg Horse).
CAUTIONS: Licorice taken in excess or for a long period of time (over 3 months) can deplete potassium in the body and lower gastric secretions beyond the optimal limit. If treating ulcers we suggest using with Aloe Vera for no longer than 3 months and continue with Aloe Vera for maintenance. Licorice should not be taken simultaneously with potassium-depleting diuretics. It should also be avoided when taking digoxin based drugs.
Do not give it to pregnant mares as it may affect hormone levels.
