Why We Use Kava Root

Piper methysticum

Kava possesses parasympathetic effects, meaning it decreases adrenaline which can help calm the brain so you can mentally relax and de-stress. It also helps your muscles to relax by directing blood into the musculoskeletal system and moving it internally to the digestive system and other areas of the body.

A Brief History

Native to the Pacific Islands, Kava is believed to have originated on Vanuatu and is endemic to the Oceania region, including Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia. The root is used to create a drink with sedative, anesthetic and euphoriant effects and has long-been consumed in Polynesian cultures for ceremonial practice. Scholars have made a distinction between "noble" and "non-noble" Kava, of which noble cultivars are traditionally consumed due to their more favorable composition and pleasant effects.
