Swanson Kudzu is a dietary supplement with a powdered root of kudzu (Pueraria lobata) – an Asian plant which has been used for ages in Chinese and Indian medicine. The formulation may be used to reduce migraine and effects of excessive alcohol consumption. It aids also in the treatment of alcohol and nicotin addiction. In addition, it may stimulate detoxification processes and support cognitive functions. 

Kudzu (Pueraria lobata) is a plant which grow up to 12 m and resembles vines. It is native to East and South-East Asia and some Pacific islands. It has been used for ages in natural Chinese and Indian medicine because the whole plant (root, seeds and leaves) contains substances with therapeutic properties. Kudzu is a plant rich in such flavonoids as: daidzin, daidzein, puerarin, genistein, tectorigenin, glycitin, tectoridin and spinasterol.

Kudzu is helpful in reducing the consumption of alcohol. By inhibiting the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase, it prevents the breakdown of alcohol into acetaldehyde and thus inhibits the formation of acetic acid. As a result, it limits the production of salsolinol which stimulates opioid receptors. The blockade of these receptors reduces the feeling of pleasure after drinking alcohol. 

Furthermore, flavonoids from kudzu contribute to an increase in levels of such neurotransmitters as serotonin and dopamine which affect GABA receptors. An increase in the amount of active neurotransmitters stimulates the reward system, thereby suppressing the urge to drink alcohol. Studies show clearly a positive impact of kudzu root on reducing alcohol consumption. Limiting alcohol intake may be the first step to further treatment.

This mechanism of action does not only help beat your alcohol addiction but also may aid in withdrawing from nicotine and drugs. Kudzu is useful especially at the beginning of therapy when it reduces the urge to take stimulants or their intake. 

If we drink too much alcohol, kudzu will help reduce unpleasant effects of consumption the next day because it contains flavonoids which promote the removal of acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is a metabolite of ethyl alcohol which is formed in the liver. Its high concentrations in the body cause, among others, headache, intense thirst, photophobia, increased sensitivity to noise and drowsiness. This condition is popularly called hangover.

Cognitive support Kudzu increases the availability of dopamine and serotonin – two extremely important neurotransmitters in the learning process and memory. Studies have demostrated a positive impact of kudzu on levels of focus, memory and mood, Furthermore, this plan protects neurons against oxidative stress. It seems to block enzymes responsible for apoptosis and has therefore neuroprotective properties. 

Cardiovascular support Isoflavones from kudzu help prevent the clumping of blood platelets and formation of blood clots. What is more, kudzu extract contributes to dilating blood vessels, thereby increasing oxygen and blood supply to the heart and brain. It may also help lower blood pressure effectively.

In addition, studies show that kudzu administration may decrease levels of LDL cholesterol in the arteries and increase levels “ of “good” HDL cholesterol, which may be important for preventing cardiovascular diseases.

Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties A high content of flavonoids provides solid support for the whole body against inflammation and oxidative stress. Kudzu has been shown to lower levels of prostaglandin E2 and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) which are involved in inflammation. Furthermore, in studies on animals it stimulates the activity of superoxide dismutase, responsible for the synthesis of glutathione – a potent natural antioxidant.

To sum up, Swanson Kudzu is a natural dietary supplement which helps effectively cure addictions and promotes detoxification processes of the body. Furthermore, it has a beneficial effect on mood and cognitive functions and may relieve symptoms of hangover.
