It might be caused by the warm weather or it could be your attempt to cut back on caffeine. No matter what your reason, it’s only 3 pm. and you’re starting to nod off to sleep at your desk. A quick way to perk up fast is to munch on a piece of genuine black licorice. This sounds to good to be true right? Well it’s not. Licorice root contains glycyrrhizin. This is a sweet tasting compound that slows the body’s breakdown of invigorating hormonoes like adrenaline and norepinephine. What is the result from this you ask. It is simple. The licorice causes a lasting stream of energy that will carry you through to the end of the day. So if you are feeling sleepy in the afternoon why not try this easy trick.
