Licorice and weight loss
An extract of Liquorice (Licorice flavonoid oil (LFO)) has been implicated in the regulation of lipid metabolism in animal studies. It has also been shown to lower body weight in overweight human subjects by reducing total body fat.
Results from a study by Mori et al suggest that LFO can aid fat oxidation in during light exercise.
Liquorice is a key ingredient in the Wise Herb Company range of herbal infusions which include green tea and liquorice, amongst others.
