Overview

Licorice Extract (Glycyrrhiza Uralensis) and Glycyrrhiza inflata extract (C. inflata) are extracts from the roots of the legume licorice root. Licorice Extract has been used medicinally for highly effective coughs and as a mild laxative. It promotes the ejection of mucus or exudate from the lungs, bronchi, and trachea; sometimes extended to antitussives. Glycyrrhetinic acid has a corticosteroid-like structure, thus is useful as an anti-inflammatory and co-emulsifier to treat skin disorders and in cosmetics. Licorice root extract is used as a foaming agent in beers and fire extinguishers.
