The Benefits Of Kava Root Tea

Kava is known to make you feel calm, relaxed and happy. It is has also been used to relieve pain, seizures, and relax muscles. Some people prefer to drink Kava Tea as an alternative to alcohol for social relaxation.

Kava is a tropical evergreen shrub with heart shaped leaves and woody stems. Its most active ingredients are called kavalactones. There are said to be 18 different kavalactones, with a large majority of active ingredients coming from six kavalactones.

Traditionally prepared Kava Tea tastes very earthy and it looks like muddy water. People who have consumed it all their lives don’t like the taste, but they enjoy the way it makes them feel. The smell is said to be somewhat strong and unpleasant and may be best consumed blended with other herbs.
