In Germany, Kava Kava Root is used in non-prescription form to reduce anxiety and has gained popularity in the U.S. for its relaxing effects. Recently, it has gained even more popularity with the natives of Hawaii, Australia and New Guinea where it is used medicinally, as well as for recreation. It is effective as a pain reliever, and some believe comparable to aspirin, acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Recent clinical studies show that it is an safe non-addictive anti-anxiety herbal medicine. While some of these types of prescriptions tend to promote mental impairment and lethargy, Kava has shown to improve concentration, memory and reaction time for people suffering from anxiety. It has been clinically demonstrated as a means of achieving a state of relaxation without the adverse side effects. Kava has a direct effect on the central nervous system and it also has an effect on muscle tension, similar to muscle relaxants and tranquilizers. It is mildly narcotic and can produce a euphoric effect characterized by elevated mood, fluent and lively speech and an increase in sense of sound. The relaxed state and the sharpening of the senses give Kava Kava its aphrodisiac effect. It is also used in the treatment of genitourinary tract including vaginitis, gonorrhea and menstrual cramps. Kava is a diuretic and and anti-inflammatory that has shown to be useful for gout, arthritis, rheumatism, bronchial congestion, cystitis and prostatis. It is also an effective local anesthetic and pain reliever when applied externally as a liniment.

Kava Kava is a mild, but effective, sedative that induces physical and mental relaxation and helps to reduce anxiety without dulling the mind. As a matter of fact, although it is used mostly for its sedative properties, it does not seem to impair the user's mental clarity and has been known to improve memory and sensory perception. It is frequently used for depression and anxiety disorders, particularly agoraphobia and social phobias. Several of Kava's chemical ingredients interact with the brain's benzodiazepine receptors, which are the same sites activated by synthetic tranquilizers; but unlike addictive prescription drugs that frequently worsen depression, Kava Kava improves the mood, and is not considered to be addictive. 

This popular Polynesian herb is famous for calming the nerves, easing tense muscles and enhancing mental acuity, memory and sensory perception.

Herbalists have traditionally used this as an herbal remedy for insomnia and nervousness. 

Kava's reputation is growing for a number of reasons. It has been said that Kava produces a hallucinogenic effect, or that it is similar to other illegal drugs. This is not the case. It should be taken only for its intended use, for soothing the nerves. Kava Kava is also considered a tonic stimulant. The Polynesians used it as a stimulant in small doses to create a mild state of euphoria. The herb is still thought to produce the same effects and is believed to invigorate a diminished sex drive.

  1. strong! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Nov 2015

    Taste like absolute s*** but it works great. It burns when you put it under your tongue so I recommend mixing into juice or a drink. You can tell this is not watered down either it is really STRONG!


  2. worked like magic. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Nov 2015

    I frequently get up around 3-4 AM and cannot go back to sleep because my mind is racing. It usually takes me a good hour or two to get back to sleep, but by then it's time to get up. Tried a pump of this last night under the tongue and it worked like magic. Fell back asleep right away. I must say it tastes pretty nasty, but it was worth it. It's like taking a shot of some herbal 100 proof alcohol in the middle of the night. The alarm woke me up this morning and I feel rested. I will be ordering more soon!

  4. Effective and authentic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2015

    I find the Kava Kava effective. I take it both during the day and before bed. When I take, I put a dropper full under my tongue and let it lounge there for several minutes to absorb. I find the alcohol gives a bit of a sting, but that softens. I don't mind the taste at all, in fact, it is familiar to me and so I know the product is authentic. I lived on Oahu for a while and had the good fortune to have access to hand-made kava drink. As with that, this tincture will give a bit of numbing to the lips and tongue.


  5. This has helped so much 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2015

    I don't like taking prescription drugs for anxiety, been using this for a month and switched to only using this to treat my anxiety and panic attacks. The taste takes awhile to get used to, if ever, however, 5 seconds of gross face expressions is acceptable for the benefits.
