Everyone who loves licorice knows that it has a flavor that no other candy can match. But not as many people know that licorice also has several health benefits.

5 health reasons why you should eat more licorice

After reading this, you'll enjoy eating licorice even more, and maybe even start eating more.

1. It boosts the metabolism

Licorice contains many antioxidants that are good for the body, and in its purist form, it has the ability to raise body temperature and can increase the metabolism. So if you're thinking of revving up your metabolism, choose licorice as pure as possible instead of gobbling up candy, which would have the opposite effect.

2. It helps the stomach

Most people think of licorice as candy, but the licorice root has a long medical history behind it. It's used to relieve discomfort from stomach ulcers, heartburn, and chronic gastritis.

3. It relieves coughing

Have you ever noticed that many cough medicines taste like licorice? Thousands of years ago, licorice was found to have anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it's well-suited for cough medicine.

4. It helps raise low blood pressure

Licorice raises blood pressure, so it's a good choice of sweets for those who have low blood pressure. However, if you have high blood pressure or are pregnant, consuming licorice is not recommended.

5. It's good for teeth

It sounds strange if you think of licorice as candy, but the fact is that the licorice root contains antibacterial substances that can counteract several bacteria connected with cavities, writes the Journal of Natural Products.
