Now Foods Kava Kava Extract is a dietary supplement with a high-quality extract of kava-kava root (Piper methysticum), standardised at a 30% content of active substances - kavalactones. The product is additionally enriched with an extract of Siberian ginseng root (Eleutherococcus senticosus).

Kava-kava (Piper methysticum) - a species of a traditional medicinal plant, commonly known as kava or kava-kava; for thousands of years, it has been used for medicinal and relaxing purposes in the countries of the South Pacific in the form of herbal tea, prepared from a fresh rhizome or, more often, from the root. It is the root that contains the greatest amount of active substances with a mild psychoactive, spasmolytic and anti-anxiety effect, i.e. kavalactones (mainly methysticin, yangonin, kavain, marindinin and their dihydro derivatives). In spite of that, it does not belong to addictive drugs.

How does Kava work?
The plant's mechanism is complicated and not entirely explained. Currently, it is certain that Kava works through GABA-A receptors in nerve endings, stimulates the secretion of FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and inhibits the activity of monoamine oxidase in the brain, i.e. the enzyme which breaks down many neurotransmitters with an amino structure.

Many clinical studies have confirmed its anxiolytic, anti-anxiety, anticonvulsant, sedative, spasmolytic and central-muscle-relaxant properties, putting the plant on an equal footing with such drugs as Opipramol and Buspirone - the comparison was made during tests on a German drug Maoni which contained the standardised kava extract. What is more, scientists are testing the plant’s effect on alleviating menopause symptoms in women.

Kava-kava properties and application
As reported by numerous users, kava-kava can cause mild euphoria, improve the mood and stimulate eloquence. It puts the users in a carefree mood, maintaining the lightness and sharpness of mind and the ability to focus attention, which makes it a much better solution than drinking alcohol. Additionally, contrary to alcohol, it does not cause aggression, anger and unwise behaviour, which makes it a potential help in fighting addictions. Kava is recommended in the conditions of fear, anxiety, excessive emotional tension and neurotic symptoms.

Kava in alleviating menopause symptoms
As early as in 1990, scientists tested the effect of the Kava Kava extract on conditions of anxiety and some vegetative symptoms among women (about 52 years old) who were undergoing menopause. The treatment lasted 12 weeks, the dosage was 60 mg of kavalactones a day. With the help of specialist indexes (KI - Kupperman index; ASI - Anxiety Sensitivity Index), a positive effect was observed as soon as after 4 weeks since the beginning of the supplementation. Following studies also confirmed its anxiety-reducing properties. Moreover, kava-kava showed synergy when connected the with hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which includes the use of oestrogens and progestogens.

Safe use of kava-kava
Commission "E" members (a German advisory board, representatives of academic and practical medicine and pharmacy at the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices - BfArM) have issued a statement in which they stated that they were convinced by the scientific data concerning kava-kava's efficiency, and the ratio of benefits to risks and its therapeutic application in patients were assessed positively.

Eleutherococcus senticosus - also called the Siberian ginseng; used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 4,000 years for the purpose of increasing vitality; belongs to the so-called adaptogenic plants which increase the resistance to stress factors. Moreover, it has a beneficial effect on the processes of concentration and learning.

To sum up, NOW FOODS Kava Kava is a dietary supplement which facilitates alleviating the symptoms of anxiety, neurosis and stress. It is a healthy and natural alternative for alcohol and sedative drugs. Recommended in alleviating menopause symptoms, drug rehabilitation and the conditions of excessive emotional, nervous and muscle tension. Therapeutic application should be carried out under the permanent guidance of a specialist.
