Kudzu and Sobriety

The ancient herb kudz may help alcoholics get sober, UPI reported
April 17.

A kudzu-based Chinese herbal medicine reduces the urge to drink and
mitigates the negative effects of alcohol, according to researchers at
the university of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Rats fed kudzu drank
less and were less intoxicated; researchers said kudzu reduces craving by
40 percent.

People in China have long held that kudzu eases the pain of
hangovers.

The findings were published in the journal of Alcoholism Clinical and
Experimental Research.
