BENEFITS OF KAVA
Ease Stress & Anxiety
Kava contains compounds known as kavalactones. In the brain, they
operate on non-opiate pathways to offer a natural and non-narcotic
action against anxiety.
Kava contains many plant compounds that are known anti-inflammatories. Specifically, an extract of a compound from kava called kavain is being studied for its beneficial effects on inflammation.
Kava helps to promote deep sleep without having any impact on the restful REM sleep you need. It is even said to help regulate the sleep-wake cycle.
SENSE OF WELL-BEING
Kavalactones bind with the brain’s GABA receptors, blocking the reuptake of dopamine and seratonin, causing an elevation of these neurotransmitters.
