What It Is; Why It Works
As a vegetable, Chicory is mentioned by the ancient authors Horace, Pliny, Virgil, and Ovid. The blanched leaves can be used cooked and in salads. In France and Belgium, the roots are sliced, kiln-dried, roasted, ground, and added to coffee, imparting a slightly bitter taste and dark color.
For medicinal purposes, the leaves, the roots, and the entire plant--both fresh and dried--are all subject to use. Chicory works by increasing the flow of bile into the digestive tract.

Avoid If...
No known health conditions preclude the use of Chicory.

Special Cautions
At typical dosage levels, Chicory poses no hazards. A few people find that they are sensitive to skin contact with the herb.

Possible Drug Interactions
No interactions have been reported.

Special Information If You Are Pregnant or Breastfeeding
No harmful effects are known.

How To Prepare
To prepare Chicory tea, pour boiling water on 2 to 4 grams (about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoonful) of dried Chicory, steep for 10 minutes, then strain.

Typical Dosage
The usual single dose is 2 to 4 grams of the herb in tea. The total daily dosage is 3 to 5 grams (up to 1 teaspoon) of chopped Chicory.

Overdosage
No information on overdosage is available.

Chicory

Description

Chicory (Cichorium intybus) is a herb and root that has been known for its curative benefits since the first century A.D.. It is a member of the Asteraceae family. A scraggly plant with blue flower heads, chicory flourishes in the wild, as well as in gardens all over the world. It may be found in Europe, the Near East, northern and southern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and North and South America.

The dried leaves and roots of the chicory plant are collected in autumn for medicinal purposes. When flowering, the whole plant is collected and dried. With a height that may reach up to 5 ft (1.5 m), chicory can be recognized by its oblong leaves that resemble a crosscut saw or slit, with numerous stiff hairs on the underside. Chicory, whose common names include succory, chicory root, chicory herb, blue sailors, wild chicory, or hendibeh, is well known for its bitter taste and use as a coffee substitute.

General use

The ancient Egyptians ate large amounts of chicory because it was believed that the plant could purify the blood and liver, while others have relied on the herb for its power to cure "passions of the heart." Chicory continues to be a popular herbal remedy due to its healing effects on several ailments.

Chicory is taken internally for the following disorders.

In addition, the leaves of chicory may also be used as compresses to be applied externally to ease skin inflammations and swellings.

According to folklore, chicory was recommended as a laxative for children, and it is also believed to increase the flow of bile. As a mild diuretic, it increases the elimination of fluid from the body, leading to its use as a treatment for rheumatism and gout.

Women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome (PMS) may find that regular use of chicory root as a bitter and a liver tonic may assist in maintaining hormone balance and lessening the symptoms of PMS. In addition, altering the diet by eating a "bitter" salad that includes fresh dandelion, chicory, and sorrel is believed to strengthen the liver and discourage the growth of candida.

Chicory also supports the body's ability to absorb calcium, a nutrient that helps build and maintain strong teeth and bones. Raftilin inulin and raftilose oligofructose are fibers extracted from chicory root that cannot be digested by the small intestine. Instead, they are fermented by bacteria in the large intestine, leading to the increased absorption of calcium and other minerals. Oligofructose is an example of a prebiotic, or nondigestible food ingredient that benefits health by supporting the growth of one or several types of bacteria in the colon.

A study published in 2002 indicates that inulin appears to lower the risk of coloncancer. The precise nature of its protective effects is not yet known, however.

In addition to enhancing digestive processes, chicory helps to keep the liver healthy. The inclusion of chicory root supplements in the diet supports the proper metabolism of cholesterol.

Preparations

While the medicinal uses of chicory are numerous, the plant is also often used as a food additive, as a flavoring agent, and in meals. Inulin can be used to improve the texture of processed foods as well as sweeten them. It can also be used to make biodegradable nonfood substances with many industrial applications. This versatility is important to environmentalists because chicory is a renewable natural resource.

Wild and cultivated chicory leaves may be added to salads or sautéed and served alone. Moreover, the roasted and ground root of the plant is a common addition to coffee in Europe and in the United States.

Studies have shown that chicory complements coffee when it is used as a supplement due to its lactucin and lactucopicrin. These two substances are responsible for the bitter taste of chicory, and may serve to counteract the stimulating effects of caffeine. Chicory by itself actually has a sedative action on the central nervous system.

Chicory is available over the counter in bulk as green leaves and dried roots. To prepare the herb as a tea, also known as an infusion, for home use: steep 1 tsp (5 ml) rootstock or dried herb with 0.5 cup (4 fl oz) water and strain after 10 minutes. To treat jaundice, spleen problems, gallstones, or gastritis, drink 8-12 oz (225-350 ml) of chicory tea per day.

As a dietary supplement, 1 tsp (5 ml) of juice from chicory stems may be squeezed by hand and taken in milk or water three times a day.

Precautions

Chicory has shown to be safe for a variety of medicinal uses and as a food source. There are no necessary precautions to observe when including the herb in the diet.

Side effects

There are no known health hazards or side effects when chicory is added to the diet. The only possible minor side effect is skin irritation. If the hands become irritated after handling chicory, it is best to cover them with gloves and treat the affected area as needed.

Chicory History

The root of Cichorium intybus, a perennial herb, is the source of chicory, and it can be cut into slices and ground much like coffee. Its leaf is the better known Belgian Endive.

Chicory's first known reference was found in an Egyptian papyrus dating back to 400 B.C., making it one of the oldest plants known to man. From Egypt, chicory spread to Asia, Africa and the European continent. In 1789, when revolutions in Santo Domingo and Haiti cut off coffee supplies and forced France to import more expensive beans, the French organized chicory production and began blending it with coffee to hold down the price.

The Boston Tea Party was ultimately responsible for making America a nation of coffee lovers. Because of the Stamp Act, drinking tea was considered unpatriotic, and the popularity of coffee began to grow. In 1785, Governor Boudoin of Massachusetts discovered Europe's flavor secret and began importing chicory from Holland to add to his coffee. The practice soon spread to other states in the Union, but it was in the South that coffee with chicory became most popular.

Today, Luzianne makes the only coffee with chicory that's roasted and ground here in the United States. Which means Luzianne is the freshest, highest quality coffee and chicory you can find. Our blends are made with the finest coffee beans, carefully selected for just the right aroma and flavor.

In New Orleans, coffee with chicory is by far the most popular drink, outselling regular coffee by leaps and bounds. And since New Orleanians drink more coffee per capita than anywhere else in the country, obviously they know a good thing when they taste it.

Chicory is a natural flavor enhancer, and its slight sweetness and caramel-like undertone make it the perfect companion to coffee, producing a brew of deeper color, extra smoothness and added body. Its natural sweetness counteracts the bitterness of coffee, making it much smoother and more flavorful.

Though best known for it use with coffee, chicory has many uses in cooking - especially in deepening the flavor of dishes like stews, sauces, breads and desserts.
