Kudzu Extract Supplement Designed To Fight Alcohol Effects

Our Kudzu supplement contains a kudzu root extract standardized to 40% isoflavones in vegetarian capsules. This supplement has significant health benefits including anti-alcohol support, now available to buy at Supersmart.

Kudzu Root Benefits

The root and flowers of kudzu have been used in traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years. They have several benefits, including the ability to help with migraines, hypertension, pain, ankylosis of the neck and shoulders, hangovers, and lowering alcohol consumption.

During a trip to China, David Lee, a chemist, observed that many people drank tea containing kudzu. Its Chinese name can be loosely translated as dispeller of 'drunkenness'. This tea is often used in northern China to sober up after drinking alcohol and to ease hangover symptoms. Some of the components in kudzu root - flavonoids such as puerarin, daidzin, and daidzein - also help reduce the damage caused by excessive alcohol consumption.

What do studies say about kudzu root extract?

In 1991, Dr Lee collaborated with researchers at the Chinese University of Shin-Yanget to test the effects of kudzu tea.

  • On laboratory rats, which had been given alcohol, it was observed that the motor coordination of the animals improved and they appeared to be less intoxicated.
  • Another study showed that kudzu lowered alcohol consumption in rats selectively bred to crave alcohol.
  • Further experiments suggest that the animals did not appear to develop a dependence on kudzu.
  • Another study conducted on heavy drinkers showed that kudzu reduced the amount of alcohol that they absorbed.
  • These results have recently been confirmed, suggesting that kudzu extract could represent a natural, beneficial adjuvant treatment for reducing alcohol consumption.

Kudzu Root Side Effects

Before consuming Kudzu extract, making yourself aware of any potential side effects is critical to making an informed choice regarding whether a Kudzu root 500 mg supplement is the right choice for you.

On the whole, Kudzu root extract is perfectly safe to take. The Kudzu supplement contains natural ingredients that have been well-studied over many decades. The majority of people can enjoy Kudzu root benefits without being worried about side effects.

Any documented Kudzu root side effects have been pinpointed as mild and not dangerous to long-term health. In spite of that, it remains important to take action to ensure that taking Kudzu extract will not lead to any unpleasant symptoms.

The first port of call is to schedule a consultation with your doctor. Your medical professional will be able to review your medical history and provide advice on whether Kudzu capsules are safe to take. Like with any supplement, prescription medication can cause problems due to adverse interactions. These negative interactions may diminish the effects of your medication or lead to unexpected side effects.

If your doctor has approved a Kudzu detox, the second step is to ensure you follow the instructions for the recommended daily dosage. Attempting to exceed the recommended dosage for a Kudzu root supplement can increase the risk of side effects without amplifying the documented benefits.

You also want to ensure you avoid taking a Kudzu supplement with alcohol or other substances that could interfere with its beneficial effects.

If you do experience any unexpected side effects, stop taking Kudzu extract and consult a doctor immediately for more information.

Directions for use

How to Take Kudzu Root Capsules

As an ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine, Kudzu root extract benefits have been well-documented. They are available in several forms, but there have been comparatively few human studies into recommended dosages.

What is clear is that taking 50 to 100 milligrams of Kudzu extract per day will come with an extremely low risk of any negative side effects. For reducing alcohol intake, Kudzu root alcohol supplementation stands at roughly the same level.

Taking these capsules orally is easy. Simply follow the recommended dosage and swallow the capsule. The extract will be released within the digestive system before being absorbed into the bloodstream.

Take two of these capsules three times per day between meals. Unlike some supplements, Kudzu health benefits are best experienced on an empty stomach to reduce the risk of the effects being dampened. Avoid exceeding this dosage to mitigate the risk of any negative side effects.

As always, if you buy Kudzu extract and experience any negative side effects, stop taking it immediately and get in touch with a medical professional. You may have inadvertently exceeded the recommended daily dosage, or you could have experienced a negative drug interaction.
