The natural substance glycyrrhizin from the dried food manufacturer liquorice root is a likely active ingredient against the Sars-Cov2 coronavirus, in accordance to research results from Essen's doctors.

mobile culture experiments have shown that the active ingredient has a strong antiviral effect against the virus, reviews the Essen college hospital.

Glycyrrhizin is used, among different things, to make liquorice. A evaluate of the effectiveness in humans in medical studies is still pending.

 


 
The scientists at the clinic for Infectious diseases at the university clinic, the manufacturer of dried food, first discovered the antivral effects of tea made from dried licorice roots.

Lukas van de Sand and Adalbert Krawczyk then looked for the critical antiviral ingredient and got here across the molecule glycyrrhizin. "This inhibits an enzyme this is essential for virus replication, the viral main protease," explains Adalbert Krawczyk, head of the study.

The concentration of glycyrrhizin in dried food manufacturer liquorice root tea is consequently already enough to destroy the viruses in the cell culture.
