The best-known benefits of kava relate to its calming effects. The other benefits of kava relate to relief from stress, anxiety, restlessness and insomnia. Kava is also used to treat conditions including epilepsy, migraine, psychosis, depression respiratory tract infections and ADHD among others.

What is Kava?

Kava is an evergreen shrub that is found in the South Pacific islands. The other name for kava is piper methysticum. The stress relieving benefits of Kava was discovered long ago. The stem and roots of Kava have been used for thousands of years in Fiji, Tonga and Hawaii in the form of a beverage.

The beverage is traditionally prepared by first grinding the Kava stem and roots and then placing them into a sack that is porous. This sack is then immersed in water and the juice is squeezed out onto a wooden bowl.

The main active ingredient is actually a group of compounds known as kavalactones. About 3 to 25% of the weight of Kava roots is from kavalactones. These compounds are the ones that offer the many health benefits of Kava.

The Top Benefits of Kava

Anti-anxiety: In 1997, the first study was conducted to understand the impact of kava root extract in people who were suffering from anxiety. A placebo was used in the control group in this study. The researchers found that compared to the placebo, kava root extract was effective in reducing the anxiety levels in the study group. Kava root extract also did not have unwanted side effects that most anti-depressant medications have. Among the best-known benefits of kava relates to treating anxiety as it does not cause dependency, unlike other psychotic agents.

Promotes sleep:  Kava is an effective sleep-inducing agent. Besides, it does not disturb the restful REM cycles. The sedative effects are one of the best benefits of Kava. The root extracts of Kava help increase neurotransmitter binding to receptors and boost production of relaxing chemicals such as dopamine and noradrenaline.

Improved brain function:  Taking 300 mg of kava root extract has been found to improve performance, accuracy, attention span and memory. Kava pyrones are found to be active in the parts of the brain that process emotions including amygdala and hippocampus.

Prevents oxidative stress: Kavalactones are known to boost the levels of antioxidant enzymes that fight oxidative stress. These antioxidants help prevent further brain damage in conditions including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

One of the top benefits of kava relates to its anti-cancer properties. Kava root extracts have also been used to treat menopausal symptoms, urinary tract infections, venereal diseases and others.
