Kava Kava – Nature’s Anti-Anxiety Aid

Posted March 8, 2013 by Paulina

Kava Kava (Piper methysticum) was originally first grown and used in the South Pacific ceremonially for enhancing a sense of unity, especially as it pertained to the meeting of high-ranking community leaders.

Nowadays, Kava is probably best known as a natural anti-anxiety aid. In recent studies, Kava was shown to be as effective as Xanax, a prescription anxiety medication (anxiolytic).

Kava is a gentle sedative/relaxant that does not dull the senses but tends to enhance sensory perception, focus the mind, and elevate the mood. Kava generally improves an openness to socialization, which can be helpful for those who are feeling flat and depressed.

Kava can also be of great benefit for those with fibromyalgia, as it is analgesic and relaxing to the musculoskeletal system. It also helps to induce a deeper, more restful sleep (use 30 minutes before bedtime for this action).
