How Kudzu Could Change Women’s Health Forever
Here in North Carolina we have a particularly pernicious vine that grows all over the place.
It’s called Kudzu.
Us North Carolinians don’t like it much since it can grow fast and take over large swaths of a yard or a forest. RXlist says this in a write up on it: “Kudzu was introduced in North America in 1876 in the southeastern U.S. to prevent soil erosion. But kudzu spread quickly and overtook farms and buildings, leading some to call kudzu “the vine that ate the South”.
But the more we learn about this vine the more we like it. Well, at least those of us who work in the healthcare profession.
You see, for all its downsides kudzu has been shown to have significant health benefits. Or at least, there’s evidence to show that in some areas of health kudzu is something of a ‘prodigy’.
People take extracts of it for all kinds of reasons, but the reason we want to focus on it is that we’re a clinic that works tirelessly to help support hormone health. And as luck would have it kudzu may be one of the better natural solutions for helping women get their estrogen levels under control.
Dr. Wiggy and Dr. Lantelme combined kudzu with DIM, iodine, and selenium in a simple once-a-day formula called Estrogen Control that you can get here to help women get their estrogen levels under control.
Kudzu Helps Balance Estrogen Levels In This Way
One of the interesting things about our bodies and plants is how there are numerous receptors in our body that associate with plants.
The interaction between kudzu and the human body is no exception to this marvel.
The way kudzu interacts with your body is as a phytoestrogen. Phytoestrogens are plant-based compounds that essentially function as estrogen in your body. Because they’re not real estrogen they have roughly 1/100th of the effects of your body’s own estrogen.
But that doesn’t mean that it can’t influence your hormone levels. When you consume a phytoestrogen, your body will respond to it as if you were getting a biological form of human estrogen introduced into your blood supply. It just won’t be as strong.
However, since your body absorbs a phytoestrogen (like that of kudzu) it will bind to estrogen receptors. And this is where its role as an estrogen-influencing compound comes into play. When phytoestrogens bind to those receptors it means that your body’s own estrogen can’t attach to the receptors which prevents real estrogen from exerting its full effect on your body.
Another reason it works so well is it contains multiple isoflavones, including puerarin, formononetin, genistin, genistein, daidzin and daidzein, that help to modify estrogen receptor metabolization.
Specifically, it can help estrogen form on the move through the beneficial C2-hydroxylation metabolic pathway, which is what you want if you want your estrogen levels balanced.
A study published in the Journal Agricultural Food Chemicals noted Kudzu has some of the most powerful phytoestrogen effects observed, which makes it ideal for handling estrogen dominance.
So what does all this mean?
If you want to maintain normal, healthy estrogen levels, kudzu could help.
Especially since it’s combined with DIM, iodine, and selenium.
Patients who take it let us know 1 thing, IT WORKS!
