What is kava?

Kava originates as a drink from the Pacific Islands and is made from the roots of the Kava shrub. It has a mildly sedative effect and can help reduce inflammation and anxiety.

Piper methysticum: Kava is made by crushing the sun-dried root of the kava plant into a fine powder and mixing it with water. Commonly served in a coconut shell, with the phrase “Bula!” which translates in Fijian to “Hello/Welcome.”

Kava contains 6 kavalactones (active chemical compounds). These lactones initiate GABA receptors which can result in:

  • Improved mood
  • Sleep quality
  • Reduced anxiety and inflammation
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Reduced stress
