A safe and natural support to reduce alcohol cravings, a natural remedy for estrogen dominance, and one of the best natural remedies for cluster headaches, Radiant Wonder's Kudzu Root Alkaline Boost is a Full Spectrum Extract and the best in the market.
Many manufacturers add raw Kudzu Root or Calcium to the product they are selling as ''Kudzu Root Full Spectrum Extract.'' They include the Full Spectrum Extract, but it is often not even the main ingredient. We sell only the finest quality Kudzu and our Kudzu Root Extract is only the full spectrum extract. (What is a Full Spectrum Extract?)
We encourage you to try our Kudzu Root Alkaline Boost and after a month write a review. We invite you to add your voice to the voices below and let us know what you think, whether positive or negative. This safe gentle product does so much that it can sound too good to be true. Kudzu Root Alkaline Boost is one of our top selling products. It really does work.
Kudzu Root is a legume and has been used in Asia for over 2,000 years. Today we find that this simple root (with roots over 20 feet deep into the earth!) is of great benefit for us. Research demonstrates that Kudzu Root helps to regulate glucose metabolism to reduce obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It also has a balancing effect on hormonal imbalances such as elevated estrodiol and low progesterone. And it seems to have a very stabilizing effect on the immune system.
The ancient Asians did not have access to modern scientific equipment to categorize and anaylze the active chemical components of an herb. So they had to rely on extensive clinical trial (for hundreds of years) and records passed down generation to generation. If an herb was of value and there were not side effects it continued to be used in the Materia Medica. Kudzu is an herb which is so safe and so effective that it will always be a part of Chinese Medicine.
Research with Kudzu Root (also known as Ge Gen, or Pueraria Root) has been building for some years now. It is helpful for Estrodiol-Progesterone imbalances. There is research with Metabolic Syndrome. Exciting new research has come forth showing the help it seems to bring to help balance glucose levels for both alchoholics and diabetics.
As an interesting side note, Kudzu is used here in the USA by the design engineers for major highways with embankments. The Kudzu root stretches often 20 feet into the ground, very strong and almost impossible to root out once planted. This is the perfect ground plant for the sides of a highway to protect the embankment from errosion.
Ancient herbalists also noticed the power of the Kudzu Root and attributed its traditional use for strengthening the immune system to its strong, impenetrable root system.
The Kudzu Root when dried becomes a beautiful white powder. It looks as white as plaster. A popular recipe in Japan to expell a cold is to make Kudzu Root Tea. A small scoop of the powder is dissolved in a small amount of cold water (as you would gelatin). Then it is put into water which is boiling gently. The cook stirs constantly. The white liquid will become clear and then gelatinous. A pinch of soysauce, umeboshi plum, or maybe sea salt will be added. This thick jelly-like drink is very powerful for knocking off a cold. Why? Most likely because it works so quickly to balance the pH levels in the body.
Our Kudzu Root Extract can be taken as capsules and it will have the same immune strengthening effect.
Kudzu and Metabolic Syndrome
Roughly 47 million people have metabolic syndrome, which is characterized by obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and issues with insulin, putting them at increased risk for cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes.
A prominent feature of metabolic syndrome is impaired glucose regulation. In metabolic syndrome, insulin/glucose impairment, hypertension, obesity and hypercholesterolemia synergize to accelerate the development of cardiovascular disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
Kudzu root is rich in isoflavone glucosides, the most abundant of which are puerarin (daidzein 8-C-glucoside), daidzein and daidzin (daidzein 7-Oglucoside). Essentially, puerarin acts as a traffic cop, regulating glucose by directing toward muscles and away from fat cells and blood vessels.
Kudzu demonstrates ability to curb cravings for sugar and alcohol
It has become known as the anti-alcohol herb. Safe, Kudzu Root shows dramatic potential for helping alcohol drinkers and diabetics.What is in this simple plant that makes it so effective in study after study for naturally lowering cravings for alcohol and sugar? Science still hasn't determined the exact mechanism so the research continues, but the facts are gathering to support the conclusion that Kudzu Root (Ge Gen in Chinese Herbalism, or Pueriariae Root) is effective in lowering alcohol consumption in humans.
The research on Kudzu Root Extract continues to expand. There have been studies done at Harvard, University of Illinois, University of North Carolina, and each has spawned new research on challenges as diverse as helping the body resist cancer, keeping blood sugar levels in balance, and naturally curbing cravings for sugar or alcohol. (Kudzu Root has been used for a long time in the orient to avoid addictions, so the body does not develop cravings).
One study found people who took Kudzu regularly, experienced a significant decrease of the desire to drink alcohol. And when they did drink, they drank less.1 Another study showed that alcohol-addicted rats had fewer withdrawal symptoms when taken away from the alcohol.2
Here is a summary of many studies (called a meta study) that indicate that Kudzu Root is effective for reducing alcohol consumption.3
We would suggest that these findings be taken with the understanding that most likely the conclusion of the University of South Carolina's study should be kept in mind. In this study, Kudzu was given to a group of alcoholic rats, who were then introduced to an open bar. The rats drank less. In the study's conclusion, the authors suggested that, while the findings were significant, Kudzu might not be as consistently helpful for humans. Why not? Maybe because there can be more than a physical addiction for human beings. For some it may not only be a physical addiction, but also a mental/emotional addiction.
Maybe this is why there was one study on chronic alcoholics at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Prescott, Arizona did not show significant success for Kudzu.4
Kudzu has multiple benefits for the immune system and the keeping the body's pH in balance.
Serious imbalances often start when the biochemical environment of your body becomes too acidic. When the immune system weakens, disease (from colds to more serious) can flourish. Kudzu Root Extract is a powerful re-balancer, bringing the body back to a more alkaline state. This helps you fight off colds, resolve digestive complaints, rebalance blood sugar, rebalance the effects of alcohol. All of this is done quickly and efficiently, with the obvious tremendous rewards of a life more in balance--you feel stronger, more in control, with a clear mind and light heart. All this comes from a mild herb that has no negative side effects.
Kudzu's Balancing Effects on Estrodiol and Progesterone
Kudzu contains puerarin, which among its many qualities is a phytoestrogen. A ''phytoestrogen'' is a ''plant'' estrogen. The plant estrogen binds to the estrogen receptors in the body. Because the plant estrogen brings a lower dose of estrogen to the receptors, it can prevent the body from overproducing estradiol. Estradiol and Progesterone are an energetic pair (yin (estrodiol) yang (progesterone)). When estradiol is lowered progesterone will naturally be raised. Instead of bringing in an outside source of progesterone (progesterone cream, suppositories, etc.) this protocol gives the body a chance find its own estrodiol-progesterone balance. Thus also giving it a chance to find that balance and eventually keep it without outside help. Read more: http://www.livestrong.com/article/115299-chinese-herbs-progresterone/#ixzz1ya3mEZZG

Kudzu's demonstrated positive effects for balancing hormones and curbing sugar cravings were most likely the reason Dr. Oz made Kudzu Root the centerpiece of his special diet to reduce weight in special places. (note: some are making an issue of Dr. Oz recommending 100 milligrams and that is exactly what you should be taking. That is not true. He is not making an absolute recommendation, only a suggestion. Kudzu Root is so safe and so effective you can easily take more. We would suggest 3 capsules twice a day. We have studied herbs in more depth than Dr. Oz has. He is an expert on the metabolic syndromes of the body; we are experts in Chinese herbs. So we offer our suggestion to add to his wisdom. http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/dr-ozs-4-step-butt-blasting-plan
