Kava comes from the Pacific Islands, where people have used it for centuries. Kava is known to be a potent anxiety reliever, and a non-alcoholic way to wind down at the end of the day, especially if you’re working late or you have trouble falling asleep. The secret lies in kavalactones, the psychoactive parts of the kava plant. The kavalactones (approx. 8%) in a few drops of kava tincture, can put you into a rare state of relaxed focus. This is why we recommend taking it before public speaking, or before going into a situation that may cause you to be anxious. Kava also has muscle relaxer properties, which makes it an excellent choice when experiencing pain and / or cramping. And, because Kava has such a powerful way of stopping us from overthinking, it is a perfect choice for those who can't shut off their mind and get to sleep.
