Description

Traditionally, pueraria has been utilized by traditional Chinese medicine practitioners to treat hangovers, allergies, indigestion, diabetes and angina, as well as neck and shoulder pain, thirst, and fever. A more recent study showed that both daidzin and daidzein may be useful in reducing the urge for alcohol and treating alcoholism. This comprehensive book contains a concise description of the age-old knowledge, as well as authoritative scientific information that parallels the rapid increase in our scientific understanding of Pueraria. It has been designed with a broad and diverse readership in mind, including students, educators and prevention and treatment practitioners as well as research scientists from a broad range of disciplines.
