What is Kava Kava Extract? Kava kava, also simply called kava, is a plant native to the South Pacific that has been used for generations. Today, many still use it for stress-relief and relaxation.
In spite of the benefits of kava kava extract, there have been some concerns when it comes to side effects. Kava, also known as Piper methysticum, is a bush that grows in the tropics of the South Pacific. The native people in the South Pacific islands would grind up its root to create a paste that they would add to drinks, which would then be consumed during social events or for medicinal purposes.
The active ingredient in the plant's root are kavalactones, which are a class of lactone compounds. Studies show that kavalactones are helpful in reducing stress, providing pain relief, protecting neurons from damage and may also reduce the risk of certain cancers.
How kava works to reduce pain and reduce stress is not totally clear. It may be due to its effect on the brain's neurotransmitters.
Benefits of Kava Extract

Reduces Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health disorders in the world. Although there are a number of medications capable of treating anxiety, these medications often come with unpleasant side effects and may also cause addiction.
With more people turning to natural remedies for common health problems, attention has recently focused on how kava can benefit those with anxiety disorders. Studies have indicated that it can help to reduce anxiety.

Pain Relief

Due to the natural pain relief benefits of dihydrokavain and dihydromethysticin, kava can also be a good alternative to traditional pain relief medications. One method of using the plant for pain relief is to add kava powder supplements to drinks or to boil the root of the plant into a tea.

Additional Kava Benefits

When you don't get enough sleep you may be at risk for certain health problems including high blood pressure, obesity, cancer, depression and diabetes. Although there are both over the counter and prescription sleep medications that will help with sleep problems, they can be habit-forming. In addition, some people can have bad reactions to sleep medications.
Kava is one of the best alternatives to sleep medications due to its anti-stress properties. In one study, a group of people took either kava or a placebo. Those who took the kava reported falling asleep faster.
There has been additional research suggesting that one of its benefits is to improve insomnia related to anxiety disorders. More research is necessary to determine if kava can aid with insomnia in those who are not suffering from anxiety. It was determined that, unlike sleep medications, it had no effect on a patient's driving ability.

Kava kava is a natural mild anti-anxiety aid, but taken long-term or in high doses has some potentially serious side effects. Check with your pharmacist for purity/safety, and your provider as to whether it's safe for you and how much. NEVER take more than the label suggests.
