Liquorice and Up & Go

November 10, 2010

Glabridin, found in Liquorice,  has the potential of strengthening the antioxidant defense mechanisms (More information: here).  Liquorice is found in the Innorbit infusion Up & Go.

In another study, glabridin, the flavonoid obtained from licorice, exhibited effective inhibition of cell metastasis by decreasing cancer cell migration and invasion of A549 cells. In addition, glabridin also decreased A549-mediated angiogenesis.   The investigation showed that glabridin may be a novel anticancer agent for the treatment of cancer in 3 different ways: inhibition of migration, invasion, and angiogenesis.
