The polysaccharide fraction of licorice has hown remarkable immunomodulatory activity, especially by strengthening phagocytosis in the endothelial reticular system and stimulating interferon production. Glycyrrhizin has long demonstrated its strengthening action on hydrocortisone anti-inflammatory activity in rats. Other flavonoid components of licorice root, such as liquiritoside, have also shown in vitro anti-inflammatory activity.
