Active compounds: Isoflavones (daidzin, daidzein and puerarin), triterpenoid saponins, chalcones and coumarins.
Storage tips: Store in a tightly-sealed container in a cool, dark place.
Safety: Kudzu root is safe for most people. However, this herb may reduce or increase the effects of certain medications, including birth control pills, diabetes drugs, blood pressure medications and anticoagulants (blood-thinners). Due to the estrogenic effects if isoflavones, kudzu should be avoided if there is a history of a hormone-driven condition, such as breast cancer.
