How to Stop Drinking Alcohol? If you’re interested in reducing the amount of alcohol you crave, this article is for you. People drink alcohol for many different reasons. They may even drink it thinking they’re getting some sort of benefit—but alcohol has zero health benefits. There is a natural remedy that has virtually no side effects that can help reduce or prevent alcohol consumption.

The best natural remedy to help reduce alcohol consumption is called kudzu. You can consume this in a salad or take it as an extract. A placebo-controlled double-blind study done on mice showed that one dose (2 g) of kudzu significantly decreased the desire for alcohol within 2.5 hours.
Kudzu has very special phytonutrients that are involved in the breakdown of ethanol. It’s very similar to certain medications used to help people curb their appetite for alcohol.
You can consume kudzu a couple of hours before an event where you might drink alcohol, and it can help reduce the desire for alcohol or the toxic effect of alcohol.
Kudzu also works on certain neurotransmitters in the brain directly involved in addiction. One study even suggests kudzu may help reduce cravings for cocaine.
