Kava Kava is a dietary supplement formulated to support the stress response, support emotional balance, promote a healthy sleep cycle, and promote nervous system health. Kava Kava is available in veggie capsules from Natura-Genics®.
Kava Kava has a long history of use in traditional ceremonies and alternative medicine. Kava kava is a tall shrub native to the Pacific islands. The most active constituents of kava kava are called kavalactones. Eighteen different kinds have been identified, and some more than others may be responsible for the sedative effects kava kava is believed to have.
Benefits of Kava Kava
• Supports Stress Response and Nervous System Health
Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. In short bursts, stress can be positive, such as when it helps you avoid danger, but when stress lasts for a long time, it may harm your health. Stress can sometimes be a trigger for anxiety, which is a feeling of fear, worry, or unease. Several studies have found that kava kava significantly assists in reducing the severity of perceived anxiety and does not appear to have any withdrawal or dependency side effects in comparison to common drugs used to treat anxiety.
• Supports Emotional Balance
Anxiety is considered a secondary emotion. This means it is experienced in place of another emotion which may be difficult to feel or express. Due to its calming effects, kava kava may also support emotional well-being. Studies have found a connection between stress and happiness.
• Promotes A Healthy Sleep Cycle
Lack of sleep has many negative impacts on overall well-being and may even be linked to several medical issues. Kava kava’s effects on anxiety may promote healthier sleep in those affected by stress-induced insomnia. The kavalactones in kava kava appear to activate the enzyme p38 mitogen, which helps regulate the body’s response to stress, helping people relax and get better rest.
