About Kava Kava

Kava Kava is an herbal remedy that's made from the roots of Piper methysticum -- a type of plant found in the islands of the Pacific Ocean. Its name literally means “intoxicating pepper.” People who live on Pacific islands like Fiji and Tonga have used it for hundreds of years in social gatherings and traditional medicine. They dry out the roots or crush them into a powder. Then they add water and drink the mixture.

How’s It Used?

Kava Kava (“Kava” for short) contains substances called Kavapyrones. They act much like alcohol on your brain, making you feel calm, relaxed, and happy. The plant is also thought to relieve pain, prevent seizures, and relax muscles.

Kava Kava has been used to treat a number of conditions, including:
  • Anxiety -- including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • Stress
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) -- the physical and emotional symptoms that come before a woman's period 
I personally have used the Now Foods brand Kava Kava as a sleep aid and found it to deliver the best results when compared to other brands. I also did not experience any of the side effects that I did with other brands. Personally, I only use Kava Kava as a “last resort” sleep aid due to the long-term side effects from daily use, but with that said, the long-term side effects are about the same as your over-the-counter PM sleep aid. The main difference is that Kava Kava is 100% natural and has been proven to not be habit forming... and unlike many other substances, you do not build up a tolerance to the effects of Kava Kava. In fact, the exact opposite has been shown, that the effects of Kava Kava can be felt more with each use.
