Worried about Colds & Flu? Liquorice Components and Immunity
As we have seen before Liquorice components can be beneficial to health. Glycyrrhizin is a main component of liquorice and has shown various immunomodulatory activities that can interfere with immune responses by targeting the dendritic cells.
In a study by Bordbar et al, the effects of the Liquorice compnent on the maturation and function of dentric cells was investigated in an animal model system.
The results of various assays demonstrated the capacity of liquorice to stimulate immunity.
In conclusion the investgators summarise that the results from the experiments indicated that the liquorice component has the capacity to up-regulate various immune responses in the appropriate cells.
Liquorice is a key component of UP&GO which helps to naturally support our immune system.
