Kava Kava

COMES IN PRE-PACKED 1OZ TIN; NOT AVAILABLE FOR BULK DISCOUNTS

Kava, also called kava kava, is a plant related to black pepper that is native to the islands of the western Pacific. Native peoples in the region have used the root of the plant to make a traditional ceremonial beverage known as the "drink of peace."

Origin: The process of preparing this beverage involves "clearing" the raw material in a ritual called milolua, a practice that began in Vanuatu more than 3,000 years ago and gradually spread to Polynesia, Fiji and, eventually, to the west.

Flavor Profile: Bitter, tingly

Caffeine: 0mg8oz cup

Health Benefits: Kava has been used in alternative medicine as a possibly effective aid in treating anxiety. Other uses not proven with research have included insomnia, depression, attention deficit disorder, preventing sedative withdrawal symptoms, and other conditions.

CAUTION: Do not use if you suffer from liver disease; please consult with your health professional before use.
