Pueraria what? All About Pueraria Lobata

Have You Heard of Pueraria lobata?

Pueraria lobata, commonly known as Kudzu, is an invasive climbing vine native to East Asia. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries due to its various health benefits.                                                                                       

The root of the pueraria plant contains compounds called isoflavones, which are known for their antioxidant properties.

Did You Know It's A Hangover Helper?

Had a wild night out? Pueraria might just come to your rescue. This plant has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate hangover symptoms.

Its natural compounds can help reduce nausea, headaches, and that general feeling of regret — and that's why it's been added into many liver supporting supplements in the market, just like our very own BYHEALTH Liver Detox.

 Always read the label and follow the directions for use. 

 Additionally, Pueraria has been found to have a protective effect on the liver. Studies have shown that it can help prevent alcohol-induced liver damage by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the liver.

Other Benefits of Pueraria

While Pueraria is often associated with hangover relief, its benefits extend beyond just that. Pueraria has also been used to treat a variety of conditions, including menopausal symptoms, cardiovascular diseases, and skin aging — making it an all-rounder remedy.

Remember, it's always best to consult with your healthcare provider before adding Pueraria-related supplement to your routine.
