Kudzu May Actually Have A Purpose – Curbing Binge Drinking


A report in the Journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, found that the herb, kudzu, which grows abundantly in Southeastern states, may be effective as a means of reducing alcohol consumption.

Subjects in the study who regularly consumed 3 to 4 drinks per day were given either kudzu or a placebo for seven days. When they were subsequently given the opportunity to drink as much beer as they wanted, the subjects drank an average of 1.8 beers as compared to 3.5 beers for the controls.

The subjects both increased the time it took to consume their beer and decreased the amount taken with each sip. So…just think… this roadside weed may have a real use!
