Kava Powder

Kava is a beverage commonly known for its restorative properties and is growing in popularity across the country. It is best used for relieving tension and easing feelings of sleeplessness. Let us delve deeper into these highlights to provide a clearer insight into Kava, how to use it, safety precautions, and KAVAmade products.

What is Kava?

Kava is a type of extract made from the Piper methysticum plant. This plant is a tall shrub in the pepper family that grows in the Pacific islands and is a popular beverage used traditionally by islanders for relaxation. It is also known as Kawa Kawa, Awa, Ava and Maluk.

Kava root was traditionally used to make mild to moderate relaxing beverages. Kava is commonly utilized for relaxation, tension, and restless sleepers.

How to use Kava

Beyond its ceremonial and recreational use, Kava is commonly used as a tension-easing plant drink. It contains kavapyrone substances acting on your brain, making you feel calm, relaxed, and happy.

Kava is also known for:

  • General Tension – excessive stress and tension about everyday problems. Using KAVAmade products can help manage mood.
  • Sleeplessness – Are you restless at night? KAVAmade products are here for you. The products help improve sleep quality and decrease the time needed to fall asleep.

Kava Amounts

Kava is present in different products, including; tea, beverages, capsules, extract powder, and soft gel caps. Kava extracts have primarily been utilized at an oral intake of 150-400 mg for up to 2 years.

Capsule formulations are offered in doses of between 50-100 mg. Experts recommend that Kava uptake be limited to 250 mg, and consumers should not exceed three months.

Our Kavamade sticks are pre-measured, so there is no need to worry about calculating wrong. Each pack contains 283 mg of pure Kava extract. Just pour a stick into 500 ml of your preferred drink, and get ready to relax!

Is Kava Safe?

Kava’s safety is debatable since physicians are yet to prove how much of the Kava dosage is safe. However, experts advise that the lower your intake, the safer you are. Excessive intake of Kava has side effects which include; fatigue, headaches, dizziness, upset stomach, and skin problems. Therefore, the intake of Kava should not exceed three months, as experts advise.
