I've been a regular kava officianado since living in Hawai'i in the 1990s. Throughout the Pacific, kava kava is used ceremonially and casually and has a strong ability to relax and take the edge of. I've been taking these from Gaia Herbs, and maybe because of my tolerance for kava, the effect on me is mild, but for newcomers I hope it will help to relieve anxiety and stress. This is Vanuatu kava in this product. Worth a try, and individual results may vary.
Probably the best kava extract out-there, kind'a pricy but worth it. for general relaxation the normal dose is enough. to really feel the kava effect you may need more . but in the end the effects are nicely calming but not sedating, with bright mood lift.
Love this brand. i have tried the adrenal support and it was a life-changing and this kava helps me relax and take the edge off my stress. Lavender, valerian and kava was as effective as xanax.
yoga and meditation are great help.
The FDA Warning is about the Kava "Leaf" NOT the "Root." The Kava Kava Leaf contains a chemical which is bad for your liver, but the Root dose not contain that chemical. As long as Gaia Herbs is not putting any Leaf material in the caps then they should be perfectly safe but then again do your own researches and don't use it for more than 3 months.
also, i read that the tea is more effective but this capsule are not dry herbs and they actually are liquid so its as effective.
