Liquorice Components and Anti-Cancer Properties
Liquorice has various components and among them is Glycyrrhizic acid (GA)which is a bioactive compound & used as a herbal medicine because of its anti-viral, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also a key component of several products of The Wise Herb Company.
A study by Kim et al investigated the effects of GA on tumor growth, angiogenesis, and the mechanisms underlying the anti-angiogenic activities of GA.
Anti-angiogenic therapies are being employed to fight cancer and malignancies.
Their findings suggest that GA is a promising anti-angiogenic therapeutic agent that targets the ERK pathway. Considering that angiogenesis is highly stimulated in the majority of cancers, GA could offer a potent therapeutic agent for cancer.
