Glycyrrhetinic acid is available in the alpha and beta forms. The alpha form is present in highest amounts in the stomach and liver, and it is thought that the dominance of glycyrrhetinic acid in these areas can produce anti-inflammatory effect. On the other hand, beta glycyrrhetinic acid exerts its beneficial effects by reducing lipid peroxidation and increasing antioxidant activity. Glycyrrhetinic acid also works to lower inflammatory substances and free radical levels in the body. Moreover, Glycyrrhetinic acid increases the levels of substances that stimulate gastric acid and mucus secretion in the digestive system.
