NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, informs you:

This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluated the effects of licorice flavonoid oil (LFO) on increasing the muscle mass of 50 elderly people who underwent rehabilitation treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee. Volunteers were assigned to either the LFO group (n = 26), consuming 300 mg of LFO/day, or the placebo group (n = 24), consuming one placebo capsule per day, for 16 weeks.



Figure: The change rates from baseline in total muscle mass.

Black circles indicate the LFO group,

and white circles indicate the placebo group.


In the LFO group, muscle mass in the body trunk increased significantly after 16 weeks of LFO intake (+0.38 kg, p = 0.02). Further, the body fat percentage and body trunk fat percentage of the LFO group were significantly suppressed compared to that of the placebo group (p = 0.03, p < 0.01, respectively). This trial indicates that licorice flavonoid oil supplementation has beneficial effects on increasing muscle mass and on suppressing the body fat percentage of elderly populations, especially in the body trunk.
