More on Kava

Kava, known "nature's Xanax", comes from the piper methysticum plant (meaning enchanting pepper) is a Polynesian shrub from which the root is strained into a ritual tea used by native tribes for nearly 3000 years to achieve a “higher level of consciousness.”  Used to promote psychological and physiological relaxation there are over 105 strains.

- Kava is primarily used to elevate mood, and relax muscles.
- Kava calms the nerves and/or eases stress.
- Kava can also help dull pain that is associated with headaches and cramps.

- In the Pacific islands, like Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga and Hawaii, kava drinking is an integral part of religious and ceremonial occasions.  
- On each island, there are distinct, deep-rooted, strong, cultural traditions associated with drinking kava.
- Kava is rapidly gaining popularity in the United States.  
- Upon drinking you will immediately notice an earthy taste and tingling of the lips and mouth, followed by a relaxing buzz within 20-30 minutes.
- It is said that Kava has a reverse tolerance, so the more you drink the stronger the buzz.

Studies on Kava

According to an article in Forbes, Kava could also be seen as a healthier alternative to alcohol and caffeine for its ability to produce euphoria and relaxation without affecting mental clarity. Its due to the Kava lactones boosting and increaseing dopamine levels in the brain, giving Kava drinkers a mild euphoric feeling. They also go on to say that studies show that Kava has potential to treat generalized anxiety and insomnia. There is also speculation that it helps with weight loss.

The Benefits

The key benefit from drinking Kava is its ability to calm muscles and relax the mind while still maintaining or keeping your mental clarity. The reason for this is because Kava has sedating, analgesic and anesthetic properties. These properties are found to help in easing anxiety and nervous tension, and in improving sleeping problems. They also allow Kava to act as a natural alternative to treating Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
