Liquorice is used in the traditional medicines of many European and Asian societies. Studies conduct on the primary compound of liquorice, glycyrrhizin, have found that liquorice is an antioxidant with antimicrobial and anti-

inflammatory properties which could give it the following medical benefits:


Treatment for peptic ulcers.

Indigestion reducing properties.

Treatment for upper respiratory conditions.

Cavity preventing properties. 





Glycyrrhiza glabra

Areas of origin: Mediterranean Europe, Northern Africa, South Western Asia and South Africa


Organic EU; Organic NOP/COR; SAGAP; HACCP



Glycyrrhiza glabra and Glycyrrhiza uralensis are the European and Asian species of the leguminaceae family used to make liquorice. Glycyrrhiza glabra is now cultivated around the world and is grown in Dysselsdorp in South Africa as part of a community project. It is produced for the sweet flavour of its roots which can be dried, peeled, whole or cut. The roots can be boiled to produce the sweet black substance which is used as a popular flavour for candy. Liquorice extracts are also used for herbal tea, tobacco, beer, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, baking and in the cosmetic and perfume industries.

  • Immunostimulant, increases phagocytosis, stimulates the production of T and B lymphocytes [6]
  • Mineralocorticoid effects [7] and potentiation of corticosteroids (inhibition of 4.5 b-reductase responsible for the inactivation of steroid hormones), glycyrrhizin inhibits renal 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase-2 (= 11β-HSD2) and thus inhibits the conversion of cortisol into cortisone [8] , leading to water retention and hyperaldosteronism, arterial hypertension, hypernatremia, hypokalaemia, inhibition of the effects of cortisol (?), stimulation of melanogenesis (by glycyrrhetinic acids) genin, l ' glycyrrhetinic acid ( 18-β-glycyrrhetinic acid ) or enoxolone is responsible for the side effects, stimulation of renin by the kidney [9]
  • Glycyrrhizic acid interferes with 17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, which catalyzes the conversion of androstenedione into testosterone, which would lead to a reduction in testosterone levels in men [10] as in women [11] , no effect found for salivary testosterone [12]
  • Adaptogen [13]
  • Memory stimulation [14] , [15] , by glabridin with anticholinergic effect (potential effect in Alzheimer's disease [16] , [17]
  • Neuroprotective ( glabridin [18] and isoliquiritigenin [19] , isoliquiritigenin possesses a protective effect against mitochondrial damage and neuronal death of hippocampal neurons induced by glutamate [20] , and it protects the dopaminergic neurons from oxidative stress by regulating apoptosis [21] , anticonvulsant [22]
  • Antidepressant [23]
  • Protects against LDL oxidation [24] , anti-atherogenic [25] , antioxidant ( formononetin , glabridin , hemileiocarpine , hispaglabridin B , isoliquiritigenin , 4'-O-methylglabridin , paratocarpin B ) [26]
  • Antihistamine [27]
  • Anti-inflammatory ( glycyrrhizin ) by inhibition of prostaglandin E2 production by macrophages [28]
  • Estrogenic effect: beta-sitosterol , stigmasterol , glabridin [29] , [30] , osteoblastic [31] and anti-osteoclastic effect [32]
  • Glycyrrhetic acid would stimulate the natural conversion of testosterone into estrogen
  • Glycyrrhizic acid interferes with 17ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, which catalyzes the conversion of androstenedione to testosterone [33]
  • Antitumor activity (prostate cancer) by licochalcone [34] , anti-angiogenic, decreases VEGF production [35]
  • Hepatoprotector [36]
  • Nephroprotective ( glabridin ) [37]
  • Healing
  • Antibacterial [38] , antibacterial activity against methicillin- resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by flavonoids ( licoricidin restores the effects of oxacillin) [39] , antifungal ( glabridin ) [40]
    • Specialty of glycyrrhetic acid = enoxolone (INN) local anti-inflammatory => anal pruritus, vulvar, solar erythema, seborrheic dermatitis
    • The sweetness of glycyrrhizin is 50 times greater than cane sugar

  • In vitro inhibition of Helicobacter pylori strains with MIC of 50 to 400 mg/ml [42]
  • A Chinese mixture (PHY906 based on peony , skullcap flower , licorice , and Chinese dates), shows an anti-inflammatory effect, decreases the expression of TNF-alpha in the intestine, protects the mucosa from the toxic effects of chemotherapy to irinotecan and restores the integrity of the epithelium [43]


Bud properties


Properties of essential oil




Indications of the whole plant (phytotherapy)


  • Gastritis, gastric and duodenal ulcer due to Helicobacter pylori
  • Angina, chronic bronchitis, asthma
  • Lichen planus [44] , [45]
  • Sun protection and vis-à-vis the stress of high mountains (mountain sickness) or water deprivation during hot weather
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Indications for corticosteroids, over a short period of time, relay of corticosteroids
  • Female hirsutism, hyperandrogenism [46] , would cause ovulation in hyperandrogenic women
  • Improves symptoms of letrozole-induced polycystic ovary syndrome in rats [47]
  • Topical hemorrhoids, anal and vulvar pruritus
  • Eczema, itching, skin ulcerations, insect bites, sunburn, seborrheic dermatitis, diaper rash


Indications of the bud (gemmotherapy)


Specific indications of essential oil (aromatherapy)


Known or suspected mode of action


  • Mineralocorticoid effects by pseudo-hyperaldosteronism, causes a decrease in aldosterone and renin by interaction with 11-beta-OH-steroid dehydrogenase (monoglycuronide of glycyrrhetinic acids lowers it)
  • Enoxolone is a topical steroid-like anti-inflammatory


Usual formulations





Possible side effects and precautions for use


  • Pharmacokinetic interactions:
    • Glycyrrhizin appears to be an inhibitor of CYP2B6 and 3A4 and PgP (conflicting studies)
  • Pharmacodynamic interactions:
    • Glycyrrhizin causes arterial hypertension and edema by sodium retention (pseudo-hyperaldosteronism), hypokalaemia, disorders of muscle contractility, cardiac abnormalities, hyperaldosteronism (sodium, chloride, water retention, increased potassium excretion, decreased diuresis)
    • Glycyrrhizin intoxication leads to primary pseudo-hyperaldosteronism. Glycyrrhizin has no direct mineralocorticoid activity (affinity for mineralocorticoid receptors, 10 thousand times lower than that of aldosterone). It exerts its toxicity through enzymatic inhibition of 11-ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. Cortisol, which cannot then be converted into cortisone at the renal level, binds to mineralocorticoid receptors reproducing the symptoms of hyperaldosteronism (renal elimination of potassium and water-sodium retention) while there is an overall braking of the renin-angiotensin system -plasma aldosterone [48]
    • Avoid association with:
      • Digitalis (increased sensitivity)
      • Diuretics and stimulant laxatives (risk of hypokalaemia)
      • Corticosteroids (additive effect, worsening of hypokalaemia)
      • Oral contraceptives (increased effects of glycyrrhizin )
      • Antihypertensives (modification of effect)
      • Omeprazole (decrease in plasma concentrations)
    • Avoid the use of licorice in hormone-dependent cancers because of its estrogenic properties
  • Licorice is used in the composition of "Soshiho-tang", a preparation of traditional Chinese or Japanese medicine plants, with good tolerance (with Bupleurum falcatum , Pinellia ternate , Scutellaria baicalensis , Zizyphus jujuba , Panax ginseng , Glycyrrhiza uralensis , Zingiber officinale ) [49]
