Promotes Weight Loss

Glycyrrhetinic acid may benefit people who are overweight or obese. Studies show that this powerful compound has the ability to promote fat loss:
1. Cell studies found that glycyrrhetinic acid promotes fat breakdown and inhibits the production fat cells (adipocytes). [1]
2. In normal-weight subjects, glycyrrhetinic acid administration at 3.5 grams a day for 2 months reduced body fat mass. [2]
3. In healthy women (age range 20-33 years) with normal body mass index (BMI), application of a cream containing 2.5% glycyrrhetinic acid reduced the thickness of subcutaneous thigh fat. [3]
4. In obese animal models, glycyrrhetinic acid supplementation significantly lowered body weight, fat weight, and plasma lipids levels. [4]
5. In diet-induced obese rats, glycyrrhetinic acid supplementation decreased the weight of abdominal adipose tissue by regulating enzymatic activity involved in deposition and breakdown of fats. [5]
6. Glycyrrhetinic acid administration in obese rats promoted weight loss by reducing the levels of SREBP-1, a protein which stimulates fat production. [6]
7. In moderately overweight men and women, glycyrrhetinic acid administration at 900 mg/day for 8 weeks significantly decreased visceral fat area, body weight, and BMI. [7]
