Through licorice lovers in the U.S.A rarely eat enough glycyrrhizic acid to get a blood-pressure boost.
  • European physicians are now debating whether moderate doses of natural licorice have a significant hypertensive effect.
  • Glycyrrhizic acid, which makes up from 4 to over 20% of the root, is not the only biologically active molecule.
  • About 300 different polyphenols, which make up 1 to 5% of the root, are suspected antioxidants, perhaps even cancer-fighting compounds.

slide17
Licorice helps heal ulcers by inactivating 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase in the stomach lining. As with cortisol in the kidney, licorice locally extends the life of prostaglandins that protect the stomach wall.
  • The effect on prostaglandins may also explain why licorice helps soothe a cough. The extract added to some cough drops may affect the prostaglandins that release mucous.

slide18
But getting in the cogs of bio-regulation pathways isn\'t always beneficial.
  • Because glycyrrhizic acid allows cortisol to stick around in the distal tubules of the kidney, cortisol binds to a protein that causes the kidney to retain sodium longer than it normally would, increasing blood pressure.
  • Other effects of high licorice consumption include water retention, headaches, lethargy, and, in massive amounts, heart failure.
