(Kava is not a drug, it is comparable to Herbal Tea)
Kava is native to the islands of the South Pacific and is a member of the pepper family. Kava has been used as a
ceremonial beveragein the South Pacific for centuries.
Historically, kava was used to help people fall asleep and fight fatigue, as well as to treat asthma and urinary tract infections.
It also had a topical use as a numbing agent. More recent folk or traditional uses
include anxiety, insomnia, and menopausal symptoms. Kava is also known as Piper Mesthysticum.
Tom Harrison, in his book "Savage Civilization" (1937) said that "You cannot hate with kava in you", and whether that is true or not,
Pacific Islanders have for centuries used Kava to calm nerves, and help with relaxation. It can be highly sedative and has been
known to numb certain body parts of the body. Typically safe in controlled amounts and it makes a
fine evening drink with no documented or substantiated side effects. It is considered safe by the German E Commission.

I love this product and am a loyal customer. Customer service is great. If there is ever a problem, they will take care of it and make it right. The instant Kava powder is delicious and helpful in getting to sleep at night.

Good quality and amount at a great price. Tastes better than any kava I had. Great non-addictive alternative to medication for anxiety, insomnia, and relaxation. I have also recieved a coupon code after every order for 20% off. Cant beat the price.

I am new to Kava Kava, so I can't compare to other brands and companies. But what I can tell you is if you are curious about it, and don't want to spend a tremendous amount on something you don't even know if you'll like, this is a great starting point. The "sample" sizes are a great way to introduce yourself. I started with a sample of Instant Kava, enjoyed it, and followed up with an order of 8oz of Instant and a sample of Waka. I emailed to ask about preparation, they replied very quickly and were quite informative. Shipping has been extremely quick and they are always giving coupons with orders. Fantastic! My next order will probably be a bulk mount of Waka and a sample of the 30%. Love it!

I first bought 112 grams of this product, I used it the first time and found it to be very effective, with no nausea. The Second time was even BETTER! It just seems to get better with every use, and it was awesome to start. I use this to relax, instead of alcohol. It is a very nice way to relax, and it doesn't make me stupid like alcohol does. I would Recommend ONLY this company! I have purchased other kava products from other companies in the past and they either make me sick, or they don't work at all. This company has excellent product and I will not hesitiate to buy from them again! I called the company today, and was VERY impressed. The people KNOW what they are talking about, and were very helpful. He explained the products, and how they differ from one to another. He recommended a few things to me that i would have NEVER found online in the sea of bullshit that floods in when you type KAVA in the search! YOU were very helpful, and I will talk to you again soon! Thank you Herbal-Island!
