Glycyrrhizol A is a flavonoid compound isolated from the root of the Chinese Licorice plant ("Glycyrrhiza uralensis").

Recent studies by scientists from UCLA have suggested that these compounds have antibacterial properties. [cite journal | author= He J, Chen L, Shi W, Lu, Q-Y | title=Antibacterial Compounds from "Glycyrrhiza uralensis" | journal=Journal of Natural Products | volume=69| issue=1 | year=2006 | pages=121–124 | id= | doi=10.1021/np058069d] The strongest antibacterial activity was observed against "Streptococcus mutans", an organism known to cause tooth decay in humans.
