The root and flowers of kudzu have been used in traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years. They have several benefits, including the ability to help with migraines, hypertension, pain, ankylosis of the neck and shoulders, hangovers and lowering alcohol consumption.
During a trip to China, David Lee, a chemist, observed that many people drank a tea containing kudzu. It's Chinese name can be loosely translated as dispeller of 'drunkenness'. This tea is often used in northern China to sober up after drinking alcohol and to ease hangover symptoms. Some of the components in kudzu root - flavonoids such as puerarin, daidzin, and daidzein - also help to reduce the damage caused by excessive alcohol consumption.
In 1991, Dr Lee collaborated with researchers at the Chinese University of Shin-Yanget to test the effects of a kudzu tea.
