The compound glycyrrhizin, also known as glycyrrhizic acid, is the main constituent in licorice root. Along with glycyrrhetinic acid, aglycone in combination offer the most noted medicinal value for this plant. Other constituents include the isoflavins glabrene and glabridin that show estrogenic effects on breast, vascular and bone tissue.
*Note on Product Origin: One of the primary things to keep in mind when using Licorice Root is that the higher the glycyrrhizin content, the more antiviral the herb will be. If using the herb as an antiviral, you should not use deglycyrrhized Licorice Root. In the US, growers don’t test the glycyrrhizin content of their harvested roots.
