Health benefits of Licorice

Licorice root has a chemical called glycyrrhizin. This chemical essentially blocks a component of testosterone which may have the effect of preventing the growth of prostate cancer.

This should be an essential component of every man’s diet, especially men in their 40s and above.

Taken in excessive amounts however, can lead to elevated blood pressure.
