Kudzu is native to East Asia. This long climbing vine is also known as the “mile-a-minute vine” and “foot-a-night vine” because of its ability to grow out of control in a very short time. Kudzu is one of the most important medicinal herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine. It contains a high concentration of isoflavones. The three major ones are puerarin, daidzin, and daidzein, which have been the focus of scientific attention for their likely contributions to the effects of the raw roots on drinking.
Kudzu may be beneficial for alcoholism and alcohol hangovers, including headaches, upset stomach, dizziness, and vomiting. Kudzu may also be beneficial for high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, chest pain, sinus infections, colds, hay fever, flu, swine flu, allergic skin rash, itchiness, psoriasis, menopause symptoms, muscle pain, measles, dysentery, gastritis, fever, diarrhea, thirst, neck stiffness, and to promote sweating. It may also be beneficial for poliomyelitis, encephalitis, migraine, deafness, diabetes, and traumatic injuries.
