    Licorice powder

    I've used this product for quite some time. Each time I get a new batch, I enjoy anew the delicious flavor, as well as knowing it is helping the other herbs I take do their job. Supporting my adrenals is the primary purpose I use this herb. I don't have an issue with high blood pressure so I can take it without concern. Highly recommended. Oh, and by the way, the personnel at 1st Chinese Herbs are the BEST!
