Licorice contains the glycoside glycyrrhizin, which has a similar structure and activity as the adrenal steroids. Licorice has an anti-inflammatory activity similar to cortisone, and has been found useful for arthritis and allergies. It has also been used for mild Addison’s disease and other adrenal insufficiencies such as hypoglycemia, and acts like ACTH, causing sodium retention, potassium depletion, and water retention.
