Description of Glycyrrhizic Acid
Glycyrrhizic acid is a widely used anti-inflammatory agent isolated from licorice root. Inside the body, it can be metabolized to glycyrrhetinic acid which inhibits the 11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase and some other enzymes related to corticosteroid metabolism. Glycyrrhizic acid can prevent dermatitis, rash, etc., and can neutralize or reduce toxic substances in cosmetics.
Glycyrrhizic acid is extracted from the root of the licorice plant: Glycyrrhiza glabra. It is a triterpene glycoside with glycyrrhetinic acid that possesses a wide range of pharmacological and biological activities. When extracted from the plant, it can be obtained in the form of ammonium glycyrrhizin and mono-ammonium glycyrrhizin.
