So I went to the organic store and saw this little box contaning about 100 tiny licorice pellets. It's sugar-free, gluten-free and made with only one ingredient : 100% licorice extract. So it's not exactly a candy : they taste really strong and are hard to chew.
I suffer from adrenal fatigue so I thougth it would be good to buy them because licorice is supposed to support the adrenals. But I'm not that sure because I'm following a low-carb diet/low GI and I don't want to ruin my progress (I have insulin resistance).
So, in that case, are they ok or not ?

Well if they aren't sweetened them I'm to assume they are low carb, unless you know otherwise. That being said, No, eating a low carb snack will not delay any progress you've made on a low carb diet, since the snack is, well, low carb.
Eating a low carb diet to help hypothyroidism is another story though. Maybe natural hormones like armour (if a doctor will prescribe based on your labs) or t4 may help.
