Health Notes

Licorice

Licorice
Common names:
Gan Cao
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

    Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Whole Herb Licorice Root:

    I have ordered this product before and started using it as an alternative for my asthama and it has really helped. My only complaint is not the product, but the shipping. it comes via UPS Innovations (AKA) the USPS. My order was shipped on time and was supposed to arrive on 12/17/2012 and as of today 01/01/2013 I have yet to recieve it.
