Herbs-for-alcohol-abuseHerbs for alcohol abuse?
Are there any herbs which help reduce the craving for alcohol?
Kudzu is supposed to, 2-5 grams decoction (tea) on an empty stomach. Most heath food stores carry both pill form and tea.
here's what vitamin research product's 96 catalog says about it:
"Kudzu Extract" - 40% flavonglycosides
The active components of kudzu are isoflavones like daidzein. In the
orient, kudzu has been used as a traditional treatment for alcoholism.
Recently, published research confirmed these traditional uses -- it was
shown in animal models of alcoholism, kudzu could reduce spontaneous
alcohol consumption and reduce peak alcohol concentrations.
