Kava Extract (30% kavalactones)
Kava (Piper methysticum: Latin “pepper” + Latinized Greek “intoxicating”) is a crop of the western Pacific.
The roots of the plant are traditionally used to produce a drink with sedative, anesthetic, and euphoriant properties. Kava is consumed throughout the Pacific Ocean cultures of Polynesia, including Hawaii, Vanuatu, Melanesia and some parts of Micronesia for its sedating effects. Its active ingredients are called kavalactones.
