Fights Infection

Studies show that glycyrrhetinic acid also has immune-boosting properties that can help fight infection:
1. The antiviral activity of glycyrrhetinic acid can fight a wide array of virus such as vesicular stomatitis virus, influenza virus, herpes simplex virus, Newcastle disease virus, and vaccinia virus. [14-16]
2. Glycyrrhetinic acid exerts its antiviral activity by inhibiting the replication of viruses. [17]
3. In murine models of skin and soft tissue infection, 18β-Glycyrrhetinic acid inhibited the survival of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). [18-19]
4. In rodents, 18β-Glycyrrhetinic acid significantly attenuated H. pylori-infected gastritis. [20]
5. In cell culture-produced hepatitis C virus, glycyrrhetinic acid reduced viral replication. [21-25]
6. Glycyrrhetinic acid also decreased hepatic and splenic parasite burden in mice infected with protozoa. [26]
7. A cell study also found that glycyrrhetinic acid has significant antiviral activity against rotavirus replication. [27]
8. In mice with burn injuries, glycyrrhetinic acid improved resistance to Pseudomonas aeruginosa wound infection. [28]
9. Glycyrrhetinic acid improved the resistance of mice to opportunistic infection of Candida albicans through modulation of T cell responses. [29]
