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 alcohol consumption 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!
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 roots, which contain several natural compounds including isoflavones and saponins.
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 preclinical studies.
