Kudzu, a remarkable plant belonging to the pea family Fabaceae, offers numerous benefits for the skin. Packed with a powerful antioxidant that surpasses the potency of glutathione by 10 times, it effectively combats free radicals, preserving the skin’s youthful appearance. Kudzu’s anti-glycation activity helps prevent premature aging, while its ability to increase collagen synthesis promotes skin firmness and elasticity. By reducing melanin synthesis, it aids in achieving a brighter and more even skin tone. Additionally, kudzu counteracts the tanning and aging effects of the sun, providing a shield of protection. Through its rejuvenating properties, kudzu works from the inside out, revitalizing the skin and promoting a radiant and healthy complexion.

The extracts from Kudzu prevent early aging of skin & hair. They act as powerful ANTI-OXIDANTS to neutralize oxidative stress generated in skin & hair due to various factors.

Kudzu is ANTI- INFLAMMATORY and has the ability to decrease pro-inflammatory mediator release, which cause inflammatory processes leading to skin & hair damage.

Premature Hair Greying & Skin Aging are both a complex interplay of internal as well as external factors. Free radical theory explains how melanocytes in hair bulbs & skin cells are prone to oxidative damage. In theory, hair greying & skin aging could be prevented if reactive oxygen species are adequately removed by effective antioxidants. The antioxidant activity of kudzu is due to bio-actives, such as puerarin and daidzein.

Kudzu also has a time-tested safety record when used as food or traditional medicine. Chinese healers have used kudzu orally to treat high blood pressure, chest pain and to minimize alcohol cravings.
