Memory Update: Forgot to add licorice!

January 9, 2012

Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice/Liquorice): could slow down cognitive impairment and enhance memory.  It can be beneficial for diabetic patients suffering from dementia. Memory deficit, a major outcome of prolonged elevated blood sugar level, might be reversed with the help of licorice. 

The combination of antioxidant, neuro-protective and anticholinesterase properties of glabridin may have a positive effect for  deleterious effects of diabetes on learning and memory in an animal model.

The paper suggests that glabridin appears to be a promising candidate for memory improvement and it will be worthwhile to explore the potential of glabridin in the management of Alzheimer patients.

Their results suggest that liquorice may possess an antidepressant effect.

“Licorice is a key ingredient of  the InnOrbit functional drink YOUNG&FUN.  Young&Fun is designed to support normal brain activity, enhance memory, promote concentration and reduce learning times.”
