affects cortisol metabolism and can raise cortisol levels, giving exhausted adrenals a much-needed break.
In vitro anti-Helicobacter pylori activity of Extractum liquiritiae, glycyrrhizin
and its metabolites.
, silymarin, and ursodeoxycholic acid are widely used hepatoprotectants for the treatment of liver disorders, such as hepatitis C virus infection, primary biliary cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma.
had a stronger benefit than the antiviral drug ribavirin in an animal study and was 30 times less toxic and 30 times less expensive (Utsunomiya et al, 1997).
(Glycyrrhizic Acid Or Glycyrrhizinic Acid) 7.
In vitro induction of anti-type 2 T cells by glycyrrhizin
For example, licorice root contains glycyrrhizin
, a triterpene saponin, at concentrations ranging from 7-10%.
Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) was used as the glycyrrhizin
inhibits viral growth and inactivates viral particles (Jeong & Kim, 2002, Asl & Hosseinzadeh, 2008).
Liquorice contains a chemical called glycyrrhizin
that can cause your blood potassium levels to fall, potentially causing an abnormal heart rhythm, swollen ankles and lethargy.
Be aware: The good news is that many "liquorice" sweets (the soft type and Allsorts) have only low levels of liquorice extract and glycyrrhizin
, so they're much safer.
It is also worthwhile drawing attention to glycyrrhizin
, mogrosides (purified from Luo Han Guo fruit) and of course the recently EU regulatory approved steviol glycosides (from Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni leaves).
