New Roots Herbal’s Kava is standardized to contain 30% kavalactones, the compound responsible for its relaxing effects.
Roots of the kava plant (Piper methysticum), native to the South Pacific, have a long history of therapeutic use for anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, and stress-related muscle tension.
Kavalactones within kava have been proven to enhance levels of neurotransmitters that include dopamine and serotonin, the compounds responsible for positive mood and feelings of pleasure. With therapeutic effects similar to those of the benzodiazepine group of drugs (e.g. valium), yet without side effects or the risk of addiction, New Roots Herbal’s Kava could prove to be an ally for your ongoing mental health.
