~ 090909 Kudzu Root Fights Metabolic Syndrome

A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry reports that root extracts from the vine kudzu help lower cholersterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and insulin levels.

Long used in China and Japan as a health food supplement, kudzu shows promise as a dietary supplement for metabloic syndrome which increases risk for heart attack, stroke and other disease. Individuals with obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and problems with their body's ability to absorb insulin may benefit from kudzu extracts.

Reasearch conducted at the University of Alabama indicates that the fast-growing vine once used to fight soil erosion "may provide a dietary supplement that significantly decreases the risk and severity of stroke and cardiovascualr disease in at-risk individuals."
