Feature summary

Kava (Piper methysticum) has been used for centuries by South Pacific islanders, where it has a long history of medicinal and ceremonial use. Traditionally, mashed kava roots are consumed as a drink at religious, cultural, and social gatherings to promote relaxation. People drinking kava often report more restful sleep afterwards, and studies confirm the benefits of kava for the relief of occasional anxiety, insomnia, and restlessness.

Stress-Relax Kava Kava is standardized to contain 30% kavalactones, the key active constituents in kava. Kavalactones support the production of the neurotransmitters involved in regulating mood and relaxation, including serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline. Numerous studies have shown that kava can help calm nervousness, relax tense muscles, and minimize the negative effects of stress, as well as having analgesic (pain-relieving) qualities.

Quality is of paramount importance when choosing a kava supplement. This non-GMO formula features Kavapure®, made from a variety of kava grown in the South Pacific. The sourcing and extraction methods used maximize the quality and consistency of the active ingredients, ensuring the highest possible potency. The safety and efficacy of Kavapure have been confirmed through clinical studies.

Stress-Relax Kava Kava is ideal for anyone who wants to enhance relaxation, improve sleep quality, and reduce occasional anxiety, even at times of stress.

How it works

Kava calms feelings of nervousness and supports sleep quality through the actions of kavalactones, compounds found in the kava root. Kavalactones alter the levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline, and GABA (gamma-amino-butyric acid), thereby demonstrating anxiolytic, sedative, analgesic, mild anticonvulsant, and muscle relaxant (spasmolytic) effects.

Kavalactones have also been found to enhance mental focus and clarity by decreasing restlessness and stress while performing mentally challenging tasks, and by activating certain areas of the brain associated with attention, memory, and concentration. Since they do this without inducing drowsiness, kava is suitable for daytime use to improve concentration.

Kava helps relieve pain and support a healthy inflammatory response by reducing the production of pro-inflammatory substances in the body. It does this by inhibiting the activity of enzymes such as cyclooxygenase (COX)-1 and COX-2, while also decreasing levels of other substances known to play a role in triggering undesirable changes in the DNA of cells. Kavalactones also help decrease the physiological effects of stress, such as increases in blood pressure and blood viscosity, in part by affecting levels of noradrenaline and thromboxane-A2.
