    Molecular Structure


    Although kudzu has been widely recognized as a ground cover and fodder crop in the Western world, the plant has a lengthy history of medicinal use in Asian cultures. As far back as the 6th century BC, Chinese herbalists have used the plant for muscular pain and for the treatment of measles. Kudzu is cited in herbals from Japan, China, and Fiji. The Chinese also have used extracts of the plant for muscular aches and stiffness and to treat alcoholism. Animal studies regarding alcoholism show some promise, although research reveals no clinical data regarding the use of kudzu for alcoholism. Kudzu also has been used for cardiovascular disease. Preliminary studies on animals and humans indicate some potential. More studies are needed.
