Providing storage is as stated on the product vial and the vial is kept tightly sealed, the product can be stored for up to 24 months(2-8C)
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20C. Generally, these will be useable for up to two weeks. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.

Estrogen Receptor (ER) Subtype Selectivity Identifies 8-Prenylapigenin as an ERβ Agonist from Glycyrrhiza inflata and Highlights the Importance of Chemical and Biological Authentication.[Pubmed: 29641206
Postmenopausal women are increasingly using botanicals for menopausal symptom relief due to the increased breast cancer risk associated with traditional estrogen therapy. The deleterious effects of estrogens are associated with estrogen receptor (ER)α-dependent proliferation, while ERβ activation could enhance safety by opposing ERα effects.
METHODS AND RESULTS:
Three medicinal licorice species, Glycyrrhiza glabra ( G. glabra), G. uralensis, and G. inflata, were studied for their differential estrogenic efficacy. The data showed higher estrogenic potency for G. inflata in an alkaline phosphatase induction assay in Ishikawa cells (ERα) and an estrogen responsive element (ERE)-luciferase assay in MDA-MB-231/β41 breast cancer cells (ERβ). Bioassay-guided fractionation of G. inflata led to the isolation of 8-prenylapigenin (3). Surprisingly, a commercial batch of 3 was devoid of estrogenic activity. Quality control by MS and qNMR revealed an incorrect compound, 4'- O-methylbroussochalcone B (10), illustrating the importance of both structural and purity verification prior to any biological investigations. Authentic and pure 3 displayed 14-fold preferential ERβ agonist activity. Quantitative analyses revealed that 3 was 33 times more concentrated in G. inflata compared to the other medicinal licorice extracts.
These data suggest that standardization of G. inflata to 3 might enhance the safety and efficacy of G. inflata supplements used for postmenopausal women's health.
