Kava has been used medicinally for hundreds if not thousands of years in Polynesia, Micronesia, and Hawaii, as well as a recreational beverage for relaxation and tension relief. It has proven, over thousands of years, that it has far more benefits than side effects, but it’s important to educate yourself


Some studies into the effects of kava on the brain demonstrate that potentially, kava can benefit people who suffer from social anxiety and stress by calming them in a way similar to benzodiazepine medications such as Valium or Ativan, although we would never compare a natural dietary supplement’s effects to any prescription medication.While kavalactones (the class of active compounds in kava) reportedly affect the same pathways in the brain as Valium, kavalactones do not seem to impair your ability to think and reason clearly, nor do they make you drowsy if a small amount is taken. In clinical studies, about 70 to 210 mg of kava seem to be effective against social and general anxiety, while between 60-150 mg can help people overcome persistent insomnia. However, since one of the side effects of kava can be slight impairment of coordination and drowsiness at higher doses, we do recommend that you refrain from driving after taking kava in any form.  One of the best ways to ensure an accurate dose of Kava when looking for these varied effects, is to take Kavalactone 30% capsules. Each capsule is 150mg of Kavalactone, making it easy to choose the benefit of helping with sleep, or anxiety.


Another of the medicinal benefits of kava is as an analgesic, or painkiller, for which kava has also been traditionally used in the South Pacific. Indigenous islanders use kava to treat arthritis pain and to reduce overall chronic pain; to treat dysmenorrhea (menstrual discomfort); to relieve tension and pain in muscles; and even to treat asthma and urinary tract infections. I have personally convinced my mom, who suffers from sometimes intense arthritis pain, to take Kava. I got her Kavalactone 30% Capsules, and some tincture. She loved it, and although it was difficult to get her past the hype about the side of effects of kava in relation to the liver, she nows sees how beneficial this natural supplement can be to help raise the quality of her life.
