Put on the fire over low heat and mix until the water becomes transparent (there must be no lumps)

Kuzu slows down chronic kidney failure fibrosis – hepatic fibrosis

Fibrosis is omnipresent among patients with chronic renal failure, regardless of the initial disease. It is characterized by the accumulation of pathological proteins of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in the interstitial space between the nephrons.

Fibrosis is a predictor of the decline of renal function, puerarin (PR) extracted from the root of the kuzu plant, has been widely used in traditional Chinese herbal medicine for the treatment of various diseases.

Kudzu has anti-fibrotic effects on liver and kidney fibrosis

Puerarin (PR) has effectively improved the metabolic function of the liver, resulting in a reduction in serum enzyme activity of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), total bilirubin (T-bilirubin), extracellular matrix content (ECM) and increased levels of albumin, total protein (T protein).

Oxidative stress plays a critical role in the initiation and progression of chronic renal disease; it may induce activation of some proapoptotic proteins. Studies suggest that puerarin (PR) improves renal fibrosis by inhibiting apoptosis of oxidative stress-induced epithelial cells.

Standardised extracts are also acquired from the root, reaching concentrations of up to 40%, thus making Pueraria one of the major and most valuable alternatives to soya for the supply of isoflavones.
