Cool your mood with some Kava Kava
If you’re struggling with anxiety but you need to be sharp and on your game, Kava kava just might be the solution you’ve been searching for.
There are some pretty impressive studies on Kava Kava, here are just a few:
- In individuals with anxiety, taking kava extract improved vigilance, memory and reaction time in addition to reducing anxiety with a similar efficacy to oxazepam (1).
- Kava kava has been shown to be effective in reducing anxiety, lifting the mood, and does not dampen alertness or interact with mild alcohol consumption, and unlike benzodiazepine drugs (2).
- Another amazing benefit to kava kava, is that, unlike benzodiazepine medications, kava carries little to no risk of tolerance or addiction. (2)
- Several studies have demonstrated that the active ingredients in kava kava, called: kava lactones, are able to produce sedation and EEG changes similar to sedative drugs. It appears that the limbic structures of the brain, especially the amygdalar complex and reticular formation, are the main areas affected by kavain and more extensively by kava extract. Acting on these centers induces sleep without causing a sleep hangover (3)(4).
