Microgenics One A day Kava 4000 60 Capsules
Extracts of Kava (Piper methysticum) have been used in the Pacific islands for centuries. Tribes have used Kava as both a ceremonial and social drink, with different purposes and rituals surrounding its use, including which members were allowed to drink it. Since the 20th century Kava has been increasingly used by the general population.

Kava has always been considered to have a calming effect, and users are described as becoming mellow and reflective, rather than stimulated or combative.1 Its active ingredients are kavalactones, which account for 3–20% of the root of the plant.2

Studies suggest that kavalactones may induce relaxation by affecting the blood levels of certain neurotransmitters, including GABA, noradrenaline and dopamin.2,3,13 This can bring about relaxation.

Kava calms the nerves
It is estimated that 1 in 7 Australians suffer from anxiety, with women being slightly more prone to feelings of anxiety than men (18% vs 10%).15
Anxiety can be a beneficial ‘early warning system’ in a range of experiences. However, problems arise when the anxiety is ongoing. This type of continued worry interferes with the enjoyment of life and disrupts work, relationships and self-perceptions.16 Kava is a herb that can help bring relieve in those situations.

A 25-week long randomized, placebo-controlled trial found that Kava had a calming effect and was effective in soothing the nerves.5 Several other clinical studies have also confirmed that kava extract is a safe and effective to bring about relaxation.6,7,8,9,13

Kava promotes body relaxation
Sleep problem as a result of not being able to relax affect 33-45% of all Australians and occur across all age groups.10 Research has found that Kava can help the body to relax and thus improve the sleep, especially if sleep problems are related to worry.12
