Antioxidant Effect of Licorice Root on Blood Catalase Activity in Vibration Stress

Abstract

Rabbits were treated (orally) with a preparation of Glycyrrhiza glabra L. for 30 days and in parallel were exposed to vibration stress (30 days). The licorice preparation reduced catalase activity in the peripheral blood and increased animal resistance to vibration stress.
