The Licorich and the Neuropathy
Definition of the Neuropathy
Neuropathy is a term used to describe a problem related to the nerves, usually the "peripheral nerves" as opposed to the "central nervous system" which includes the brain and spinal cord. We also talk about peripheral neuropathy.
Neuropathy is caused by a number of conditions. Neuropathy can also exist without the cause of being diagnosed.
Diabetes is the most common cause of neuropathy
Diabetes, which is the most common cause of chronic peripheral neuropathy. We are talking about diabetic neuropathy. High levels of blood sugar cause damage to the walls of small blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to the nerves that innervate the ends of the hands and feet and the main organs of the body (eyes, kidneys, heart). As a result, the skin becomes damaged and the loss of sensitivity makes the skin of the feet more vulnerable.
Licorich is an ethanolic extract of licorice root is produced by a unique process and has been shown to be effective in reducing the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL).
The dried roots of the licorice plant Glycyrrhiza glabra have been consumed for 6,000 years. They are used as seasoning, as emollients and expectorants in Western countries; and as antiallergic and anti-inflammatory agents in Japan and China.
Clinical studies show that consumption of Licorich (based on licorice root extract):
✓ decreases the level of oxidation of cholesterol by 55%
✓ decreases the overall level of cholesterol and triglycerides
✓ decreases systolic blood pressure
✓ prevents menopausal symptoms in women (hot flashes)
✓ Prevents atherosclerosis and helps remove plaque
All clinical trials have been patented.
