    licorice

Never take licorice if your blood pressure is elevated.

“Consumption of licorice (liquorice) can lead to dangerously high blood pressure and dangerously low potassium levels (hypokalemia). Licorice contains glycyrrhizinic acid, which sets off a well-understood chain reaction of biochemical events in the body resulting in high blood pressure”

    Covid advice please!

Never take licorice if it is contraindicated for your particular medications.  There is a long list.  On a herbal level, it can be advantageous as a booster for other herbs, but only if your overall treatments allow for it.  Always check for drug interactions!!
