Chinese medicine story: Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae, Liquorice Root)

This story was recorded in Ming dynasty <Gen Ji Bian>. In a morning a Royal Chinese medicine doctor for Imperial Family named Sheng Yin came into a Chinese medicine pharmacy where all the herbs were boiled and prepared. Suddenly he had headaches, dizziness and passed out unconsciously. Those royal Chinese medicine doctors didn’t know what to do. An ordinary Chinese medicine doctor heard about this and said he could help. He boiled concentrated Gan Cao and let Sheng Yin drink it. Soon after Sheng Yin woke up. All Royal Chinese medicine doctors were shocked. This ordinary Chinese medicine doctor told them that Sheng Yin didn’t have breakfast going into the pharmacy and his stomach Qi was weak and could not be resistant against all toxins from the herbal steams; he was poisoned by the herbal steams and that was why he passed out. Gan Cao could mediate all herbs and detox the herbs. Therefore, he woke up and felt better after treated with Gan Cao.

Another story told how Gan Cao got its name. In a remote village, a Chinese medicine doctor went for home visit, meanwhile many patients came to his place waiting to see him. His wife didn’t know when he would come back. She tasted the dry plant for cooking fire and it was sweet. She chopped the liquorice and gave them to those patients. A few days later those patients came back with gifts for the Chinese medicine doctor and told him they felt better after taking his herbs. His wife told him what happened when he was out to see patients. He asked what symptoms those patients had. They told him that some of them had weak stomach, some of them had coughing with phlegm and some of them had sore throat. After taking the herb, all their symptoms had gone. Since then this Chinese medicine doctor used this herb to treat those symptoms. This herb was called Gan Cao which means sweet plant.

Gan Cao are the dried root of liquorice. They are sweet in flavour and neutral in nature. Daily dose is 2-10 g. They are attributed to twelve meridians. They nourish spleen and Lung, reduce coughing, detoxify and reconcile all herbs.

Pharmacological studies have confirmed that Gan Cao exhibit a broad range of biological activities.

1, The antimicrobial activity includes antibacterial activity against various strains, antiviral and antifungal activities.

2, Anti inflammatory effects. Gan Cao has also been used to treat allergies and other inflammatory diseases. It was reported steroid-like anti-inflammatory activity of constituents derived from licorice root, similar to the action of hydrocortisone.

3, Antioxidant effect and anti-aging effects.

4, activities to protect the brain and liver, Anti-ulcer and antitumor effects etc.
