Liquorice and Breast Cancer

July 6, 2013

Isoliquiritigenin is a component of Liquorice. Liquorice is a key herb in The Wise Herb Company‘s range of Green Tea Herbal Infusions.


Isoliquiritigenin was shown to induce growth inhibition and apoptosis in human breast cancer (animal model system).

The results from a study by Li et al suggest that isoliquiritigenin induces growth inhibition and apoptosis through downregulating Arachidonic acid (AA)-derived eicosanoids and the deactivation of various biomarkers in human breast cancer.
