Let’s get acquainted with this powerful ingredient first!
Licorice Root Extract in the World of Health
The use of licorice root extract can be traced back to ancient times and has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years! Coming from the Fabaceae family, the Licorice plant grows in several regions of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Apart from the world of skincare, this ingredient is top-rated for treating various health problems!
Licorice root extract contains active compounds such as glycyrrhizic acid (anti-inflammatory and antiviral) and glabridin (a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from damage). In addition, it is also high in phytochemicals such as polyphenols and saponins that provide positive benefits to our health. Here are its benefits in more detail in our world of health:
- Anti-inflammatory: Compounds such as glycyrrhizic acid and glabridin are anti-inflammatory and can provide relief from arthritis, sore throat, and digestive tract irritation.
- Digestive System: Licorice root extract is well-known in traditional medicine for treating digestive problems by increasing the production of mucus lining the stomach wall. This is the reason why it can relieve symptoms such as heartburn, excessive stomach acid, and intestinal inflammation.
- Immunity: There is also a stimulating effect on the immune system in licorice root extract compounds. These compounds can help increase the production of immune cells that fight infection and protect the body from disease.
- Respiratory System: In addition to digestive issues, Serenitree Squad can relieve coughs, colds and bronchitis with licorice root extract. The anti-inflammatory and expectorant compounds will loosen phlegm and reduce inflammation in the respiratory tract.

Acne is one of the most common skin problems, especially for people that are going through puberty or have sensitive skin. The anti-inflammatory compounds in this extract can reduce inflammation in our skin so that acne will be deflated faster. In addition to acne scars, scars can slowly fade and the skin will eventually return to its original smoothness.
