Metabolic syndrome is a pathological condition characterized by diabetes with insulin resistance, abdominal obesity, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. A wide body of research is emerging on Glycyrrhiza glabra L. (licorice) as a traditional herb with various therapeutic effects. Animal and human studies have indicated that licorice affects blood glucose, blood lipid profile, and blood pressure. Licorice seems to be effective in hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia; however, it can increase blood pressure. In this study, we intend to explain its role in regard with metabolic syndrome.
