Licorice is famous for its excellent medicinal value and is often used as raw material for processing candy. Nowadays, it has been widely used to treat many kinds of diseases.
What is licorice?
Licorice is a legume plant, originated from southern Europe and parts of Asia. Licorice extract is obtained by chemical cooking of plant roots and evaporation of excess water. It contains mainly glycyrrhizic acid, which is 50 times sweeter than sucrose. Licorice extract is often used as a flavoring agent to make various sweets.
Effect of liquorice
In addition to making candy, licorice has a wide range of medical uses. It contains flavonoids, flavonoids, and their derivatives. Their weak acid properties make the protein coagulate or denature, so as to play a bactericidal or bacteriostatic role. At the same time, licorice has an anti-inflammatory effect like butazodine or hydrocortisone, and its anti-inflammatory components are glycyrrhizin and glycyrrhetinic acid.
It was found that glycyrrhizin and glycyrrhetinic acid had inhibitory effects on stage I, II, and III of inflammation. It is believed that the anti-inflammatory effect of Glycyrrhiza uralensis may be related to the inhibition of capillary permeability, or related to the adrenal cortex. It is also believed that licorice affects the process of intracellular biological oxidation, reduces the responsiveness of cells to stimulation, and thus produces an anti-inflammatory effect.

In addition, licorice contains more amino acids and carbohydrates, which can accelerate the blood circulation in the body. Moderate consumption of licorice can enhance human immunity to a certain extent. Licorice has some hormone-like effects. Long-term administration will lead to endocrine disorders, reduce human immunity, body fluid retention, and edema.
Although licorice appears to be a harmless substance, this herb can cause potential health problems, and its glycyrrhizin content is the main cause of side effects. Excessive consumption of licorice can also damage the liver and cardiovascular system, and even cause hypertension and edema. Therefore, when taking this herbal medicine and its related products, the dosage must be appropriate to obtain the maximum health benefits.
In case of adverse reactions such as arrhythmia, muscle weakness, or allergy, the doctor should be informed in time.
In conclusion, licorice has certain help for the treatment of chronic prostatitis, but its side effects can not be ignored. Therefore, patients can choose a safer herbal formula Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill for treatment, which can remove the inflammation of the genitourinary tract from the root, restore the normal function of the anterior gland, and alleviate the discomfort of eliminating the genitourinary and urinary organs.
In fact, liquorice is also contained in the formula of Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. However, due to the reasonable compatibility of the herbs, it will not produce side effects, but also enhance the efficacy, improve the immunity of patients and effectively prevent a recurrence. It can be used as the best choice for patients with chronic prostatitis.
