"When should I drink kudzu soup?"
"Any tips for getting rid of a cold fast?"

Pueraria decoction has a long history and has been taken for a long time, so it is said to be very safe. In addition, there are no side effects such as drowsiness, so there is no risk of interfering with work or housework, which is a great advantage.
However, this is only if you have a correct understanding of the effects and characteristics of Kakkonto.
No matter how famous the drug is, it cannot be said to be effective if it is used improperly.
This time,
  • Effects and side effects of Pueraria decoction
  • The right time to drink Kakkonto
  • "A little ingenuity" when taking Kakkonto

I will mainly explain.

After reading this article, when you feel "cold", what should you do?

Please read to the end before you fail in choosing a cold medicine.

Effects and side effects of Pueraria decoction 【Instructions for use】

First, I will explain the basic effect of kudzu soup.

Also, I explain side effects and usage.

Medications have side effects as well as effects. If you take it without considering the balance of benefits and harms, side effects may reduce your quality of life.

It's the same if you don't follow the usage, take this opportunity to find out quickly!

In , we'll look at each one in detail.

The influence of Kakkonto

Pueraria decoction is sold by various manufacturers, and the description of the effect is also different, so you may be confused.

This is because the effects of Pueraria decoction are not limited to cold symptoms.

The purpose of this time is to serve as a reference when choosing a cold medicine, so I will focus on "cold" and introduce the efficacy of Gegen Decoction.

The effect of Kakkonto is as follows.

  • Chill
  • Fever
  • Cold nose
  • headache
  • Shoulder stiffness
  • Myalgia

Note that all of this is for people who don't sweat naturally and are relatively healthy.

Your physique is not suitable for taking traditional Chinese medicine.

Of course, if this is not the case, it does not mean that it cannot be done. Remember, the degree of effect depends on your physique.

Side effects of Kakkonto

Pueraria decoction does not cause drowsiness, so some people think it has no side effects, but this is a misunderstanding.

Pueraria decoction also has side effects.

If you do not know the side effects of Kakkonto, you can take action when side effects occur without knowing the cause.

The side effects of Pueraria decoction are as follows.

  • Rash
  • Red
  • itch
  • Insomnia
  • Excessive sweating
  • Tachycardia
  • Palpitations
  • Excited
  • Loss of appetite
  • Upset stomach
  • disgusting
  • vomiting
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Pseudohyperaldosteronism: decreased urine output, swelling of face and extremities,
  • Myopathy: Tightness and numbness in extremities
  • Liver insufficiency: Tiredness, yellowing of the skin, whites of the eyes

Three things should be paid special attention to: pseudohyperaldosteronism, myopathy, and liver dysfunction.

These are serious side effects, so stop taking them and consult your doctor if you experience any symptoms.

How to use and dosage of kudzu soup

With medicines, the things I keep in mind are usage and dosage. While knowing the effects and side effects, medicines will be effective if taken correctly.

In particular, Kakkonto is sold by various manufacturers, and it needs to be careful because the usage and dosage are different. Always check the package leaflet and the dosage and method of administration stated on the package before taking it.

For example, the usage and amount of "Tsumura Kudzu Extract Granule A" and "Tsumura Kudzu Extract Granule S Kracie" are different even when using the same Kudzu soup.

Let's compare for reference.

The usage and dosage of Tsumura Kampo Extract Granule A is package insertion:

year one dose Daily dose
Adult (15 and above) 1 package (2.5g) twice
7 years old and under 15 years old 2/3 package
4 years old and under 7 years old 1/2 package
2 years old and under 4 years old 1/3 package
under 2 years old do not shoot

The usage and dosage of Katsune-to Extract Granules S Kracie is According to package directions:

year one dose Daily dose
adult (15 and up) 1 package 3 times
Under 15 years old and over 7 years old 2/3 package
Under 7 years old and over 4 years old 1/2 package
under 4 years old and over 2 years old 1/3 package
under 2 years old 1/4 package

In contrast, the number of times and ages that can be taken are different. As you can see, Kakkonto varies in dosage and administration, so be sure to check the dosage and administration before taking it.

No matter which Kakkonto you choose, you'll still be taking it between meals.

In addition, Kakkonto is suitable for "start pulling".

If you miss the "starting feeling", you may get "I'm taking Kakkonto, while watching the dosage and administration, but I don't think anything is working...".

It's an exaggerated way of saying it, but it's important to start the day with a drink.

Specifically, you start to get sick when you feel like something is wrong with your nose or throat.

Don't miss your body's SOS.

Reasons to drink Kakkonto "start pulling" [let's warm your body]

Many people know Kakkonto as a Chinese herbal medicine that is taken at the beginning of the day. However, it is not uncommon for people not to know the cause.

Here, I will explain why Kakkonto is effective for "sense of beginning".

It will be a little long, but don't worry, we will explain it so that even elementary school children can understand it.

The reason to start taking kudzu soup every day is the relationship between body temperature and immunity.

Body temperature is related to immunity. It is said that when body temperature drops, immunity will also drop.

Because when body temperature drops, blood flow worsens.

When blood flow is poor, the white blood cells that kill viruses and bacteria in the blood cannot move smoothly.

In other words, even if a virus gets into your body and starts doing bad things, you can't get rid of it.

It's like a police car trying to get its siren on and get stuck in traffic. With this, the police cannot do their jobs, so the day when peace returns to the city will be far away.

When police cars are stuck in traffic, the virus varies, so the risk is getting bigger and bigger...

This is where kudzu soup comes in!

Pueraria root soup has the function of warming the body.

Warming the body also improves blood flow, making it easier for white blood cells to reach the scene before the virus spreads.

If you drink Kakkonto, it looks like this

Finally, I would like to introduce some suggestions for taking Kakkonto.

Pueraria decoction is effective for "starting" colds by warming the body, but kudzu soup is not the only way to warm the body.

Let's warm up by pressing the following points.

  • Drink Kakkonto with warm water
  • Wear heavy clothes
  • Eat warm food
  • Keeping your body cool while you sleep

Keeping the above points in mind, try to avoid cooling your body down (drinking cold water, etc.).

Let's get rid of the coldness of "beginning" with kudzu soup!

I explained the points of attention and some suggestions for the effect of Kakkonto.

Especially important is the time to drink Kakkonto.

It's important to take it at the beginning of the day, but if you're busy with work or household chores, it can be hard to stop at the pharmacy. On top of that, it's hard to get out when you're not feeling well. This may prolong symptoms.

Why don't you consider using this opportunity to make kudzu soup a regular medicine? The pouch type is easy to carry, so you can drink it easily even when you are wondering if you have a cold while traveling, so it is encouraging.

However, the quality of diet, exercise and sleep that form the foundation of your life still matters. Don't let your guard down just because you have Kakkonto!
