BioMatrix Licorice Root Extract supports the adrenal glands when cortisol levels are low. A primary compound in licorice root is glycyrrhizin (a substance that has a molecular structure similar to corticosteroids). As such, licorice root aids in hypoadrenalism by partially blocking the enzyme that converts cortisol to cortisone, thus sparing cortisol. BioMatrix licorice root is 100% organically grown and harvested.
Glycyrrhizin has been shown to support symptoms of adrenal fatigue such as headaches, anxiety, moodiness, swollen breasts, water retention, PMS symptoms, blood sugar control
