Anti-Alcohol and Liver Support.
You may have heard about kudzu lately. It's gotten a lot of mainstream attention due to recent a Harvard University study on the plant's ability to help decrease consumption of alcohol in human subjects. But that study‚ published in Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research‚ only serves to demonstrate what Planetary Herbals and Chinese herbalism have long known‚ that kudzu is the premier herb for managing alcohol intake!
Planetary Herbals Kudzu Recovery™ features the roots and flowers of kudzu (Pueraria lobata)‚ which have long been used in Chinese herbalism to help lessen the desire for alcohol. Researchers have identified two constituents in kudzu responsible for this activity‚ daidzein and daidzin‚ which in animal research have been found to cause a similar effect. These are combined with coptis‚ a primary cleansing and liver-supporting herb from Chinese herbalism‚ and other key botanicals historically used to reduce cravings.
Full Spectrum™ Kudzu provides the roots‚ flowers‚ and a high potency standardized extract to deliver a Full Spectrum™ of kudzu's constituents and benefits. Additionally‚ Kudzu Recovery™ contains a centuries old Chinese formula offering all the benefits of kudzu plus key botanicals to support liver cleansing‚ balanced blood sugar levels and enhanced energy.
History & Use:
Kudzu is a fast growing evergreen vine native to parts of Asia‚ and an invasive species in much of the southeastern United States‚ where it was initially introduced to help fight soil erosion. First written about in 206 B.C.‚ this unique botanical was popularized by macrobiotics proponents as a food thickener‚ and continues to be included in China's official pharmacopoeia. Although the entire plant is edible‚ kudzu's health supporting benefits come primarily from its flowers and roots‚ which contain several natural compounds including isoflavonoids and saponins.
While the roots and flowers of the common kudzu have been used historically in Chinese herbalism for anti-alcohol support‚ it has also used to support winter health and relax tightness and spasms of the neck and shoulders and is a key component of Neck and Shoulder Support™ by Planetary Herbals.
Validated Through Research:
Though it's been used in Chinese herbalism to reduce abuse of alcohol for more than a millennium it is only within the last decade that its actions in this respect have been scientifically examined. The latest research on effects were reported. Similar reductions in alcohol consumption have been observed in numerous pre-clinical studies.
Based on a 350-year old Chinese herbal formula for "drunkenness"‚ Kudzu Recovery provides a blend of both the root and flowers of kudzu in conjunction with key botanicals like coptis‚ codonopsis‚ and ginger‚ which support liver health‚ the nervous system‚ and detoxification processes. This gives the benefits of kudzu while supporting other systems necessary for the healthful management of alcohol intake.
