What is Kava?


What is Kava?

Kava, also called kava-kava, comes from the root of the Piper methysticum plant, a plant native to the South Pacific. People chew, ground, or pulverize the root to make drinks and teas that can relax the mind while maintaining carity. The root has been used as a medicine for thousands of years as a relief from anxiety, stress, insomnia, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), epilepsy, psychosis, depression, migraines,headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), cold, respiratory tract infections, tuberculosis, muscle pain, and cancer prevention. Some people use kava for urinary tract infections (UTIs), pain, swelling of the uterus, venereal disease, menstrual discomfort, and to arouse sexual desire. Moreover, Kava is applied to the skin for skin diseases including leprosy, to promote wound healing, and as a painkiller. Kava works as mouthwash for canker sores and toothaches, too.

Kavalactones are the active chemical ingredients of the kava root. Research shows that they can affect brain chemistry in ways similar to prescription antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications.

Kava was named by the explorer Captain Cook, who chose a name that meant "intoxicating pepper." While Captain Cook may have named kava, he didn’t discover it.

What Does It Do?

Studies show that kava can be effective at elevating mood related to anxiety and depression.
One major benefit of using kava to treat anxiety is that it doesn’t appear to have much of an effect on your reaction time.
