What is Kava?

Kava or kava-kava (Piper methysticum: Latin "pepper"  Latinized Greek "intoxicating") is a crop of the western Pacific.    Kava- is a root found on South Pacific islands. Natives have used kava as medicine and in ceremonies for centuries. Kava's relaxing effect may relieve anxiety, restlessness, sleeplessness, and stress-related symptoms such as muscle tension or spasm. Kava may also relieve pain. Kava is great for focus without any impairment-alternative to alcohol with all of the social aspects. When taken for anxiety or stress, kava does not interfere with mental sharpness. When taken for sleep problems, kava promotes deep sleep without affecting restful sleep.
