Kudzu (or kuzu) root is considered one of 50 fundamental herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine where it has been used for thousands of years for its beneficial properties. The starchy root even has a long history as an edible vegetable in its native Asia. A member of the pea family, kudzu is a climbing, perennial vine. Our kudzu powder is milled from organic Pueraria lobata. Kudzu root powder can be encapsulated but is typically prepared as a tea.
The pestiferous, creeping kudzu plant infesting the southeastern United States is an edible vegetable of Asian origin with a root that has been used for its beneficial properties for over 2000 years. Traditional Chinese Medicine often uses the root to dispel excess heat in the body. It is sweet and acrid in taste, and neutral in properties. It can unclog meridians and covers meridians related to the spleen, stomach, lung, and bladder. Kudzu is often used to more quickly dispel the effects of alcohol ingestion. Kudzu root has a high concentration of isoflavones, which have been investigated by science for their health benefits. Naturopathic physicians report an astonishing range of applications for kudzu.
