Good product that needs label update
Posted by dav605 on Jun 30, 2012
I began taking this product because I read about studies that indicate its benefit for lowering cholesterol due to its high isoflavone content. The label says "Anti-alcohol support" and people who see the bottle will assume that I am struggling with alcoholism.
I wish I could tell you more

Sadly my husband reacted to what it supposed to be one of the safest herbs! This would have benefited him with blood sugar levels, blood pressure, gastrointestinal problems as well as deterring his alcohol cravings. After three days he noticed his neck was a bit tender and stiff and after a week it was so bad that he could hardly move his neck, it was as if the glands were swollen. He had to stop taking it so this review is inconclusive. He has seasonal allergies and penicillin allergy so we don't know if this could have affected his reaction. Once he stopped taking it his neck returned to normal.
good potency, bad effects...

it seems kudzu has a stimulant effect i was not aware of when i ordered. this was bad for me, as i have anxiety and panic issues that caused me to drink more than i should to begin with. i could feel it working within 30 min. of my first dose, so it was definitely doing something immediately. this may work well for someone who isn't sensitive to stimulants. ALSO, webmd says kudzu may have estrogenic effects, and may interfere with hormonal birth control such as pills. i have stopped taking it, but that doesn't mean it might not help someone else.
Definitely Curbs Cravings

My husband and I started taking this to curb our desire to drink, the stress of moving has seen too many bottles of wine! While I still feel like drinking, it has definitely curbed my desire to snack and seems to have suppressed my appetite. Hoping that taking it a bit longer will give the same effect for alcohol.

Has drastically cut down on random cravings, though not enough to overcome the stress-response of the cravings.
Kudzu twice daily providing good results

I certainly had my doubts that a herb would keep me from having the craving for a drink of alcohol but to my surprise it's working as advertised. No doubt that I will be making another online order that was delivered discretely within a few days.

Bought this for my son, who is working on his addiction for alcohol. Tells me It's working, he loves it and I ordered more for him. Very happy to find something that will take the edge off the craving and help recovery as an out patient!
For alcohol craving

This really reduced my desire for alcohol

Significantly if not nearly eliminated all cravings for alcohol for this nearly 10 year alcohol habit. Also serves as an appetite suppressant! Recommend....
Doesn't make a difference for me

Maybe I'm just not taking it right, I don't know.....
