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.
A high-pressure liquid chromatography test of the plant is performed to determine the peak of botanical harvest. The compound is water-extracted within days of the harvest.
