Licorice: natural ingredient of Zetastop

Licorice: natural ingredient of ZetastopIn detail, the licorice is used for respiratory problems such as bronchitis, dry cough and asthma. In this area it acts as remedies mucilaginous or as expectorants relaxing. It is particularly indicated for inflammatory conditions, either alone or together with other remedies and possesses the unique ability to ease the effects of the other plants.

As anti-inflammatory is also indicated for inflammations at the gastrointestinal level as ulcers, gastritis and inflammatory diseases of the bowel and chronic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and psoriasis.
It is probably most nutritive of ginseng and this feature, together with moisturizing and soothing properties, making it an excellent remedy for convalescents. The plant can be used for chronic menstrual cramps and to relieve the symptoms of menopause.
The hepatoprotective activity combined with that invigorating suggests its use in therapy for hepatitis viral often characterized by weakening.

Lately it has been discovered that the roots of licorice are equipped with complex biologically active. The extract derived from the root is great to counteract microorganisms that are found in food: as a result could replace chemical preservatives that are used currently.

This discovery was published in the section “Antimicrobical Agents and Cheemiotherapy… and was carried out by a Japanese company named Higashimaru Shoyu. Licorice was actually used for centuries as a medicine for its faculty medications but not for the features that were discovered.
The biologically active compounds that licorice possesses are able to counteract up to 17 different types of microorganisms that make the poisonous food. The extract, however, fails to counter the gram-negative bacteria and fungi and is effective against gram-positive bacteria.

Antivirals effects

Licorice: proven effective against several types of viral infectionsSince the 80s the effectiveness of the active ingredients in licorice has been demonstrated against several types of viral infections. Recent animal studies have shown that the antiviral effects may be indirect, and least in part due to the stimulation of interferon production by the tumor cells.
When tumor cells of mice were exposed to the flu virus 100% of the cells treated with glycyrrhizin survived, while those not treated went meeting to death.

The transfer of the treated cells conferred increased resistance to infection by Herpes simplex. Direct antiviral effects have been demonstrated in in vitro studies: glycyrrhizin inhibits plaque formation for three types of viral strains of Japanese encephalitis and also it shows also effective in inhibiting the in vitro replication of varicella virus-zoster. Has antiviral activity against human immunodeficien-
cy virus (HIV).

Glycyrrhizin blocks the formation of plaques and the expression of specific antigens of HIV and in subsequent studies glycyrrhizin sulfate has proved to four times more effective in inhibiting the glycyrrhizin of the HIV reverse transcriptase.

Phenolic compounds isolated of Licorice as the licopirano coumarin inhibit the activity of HIV cytopathic cell culture. Laboratory studies conducted mainly in Japan in 1992, have demonstrated the efficacy of glycyrrhizin in the treatment of viral hepatitis type A, B and C.
Numerous clinical studies in humans indicate positive effects of glycyrrhizin on viral hepatitis. Combination therapy of interferon and Glycyrrhizin increase liver function in patients with hepatitis C.
