Used in the South Pacific for over 3,000 years in traditional kava ceremonies, kava has historically been known for its relaxation and therapeutic benefits. Nowadays, the benefits of medicinal kava is widely recognised in western markets as a safer, natural alternative to prescriptive medicines such as Valium and Xanax.
Fiji Kava, through its plant technology and scientific research laboratories, has identified specific varieties of kava (from the 200 varieties throughout the South Pacific) that possess a certain % level of kavalactones and chemo-type profiles that are desirable for targeting stress, anxiety, insomnia and muscle relaxation.
Our GMP-standard products are backed by independent research:
The first double-blind, placebo controlled, cross-over clinical trial took place in 2008 2009 in Australia, with the results demonstrating that kava (250mg of kavalactones) significantly reduced anxiety over a 3-week period in 60 adults (Sarris et al., 2009).
A follow-up 6-week study in 75 participants diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder further demonstrated the efficacy of kava (120mg-240mg of kavalactones) in significantly reducing anxiety compared to placebo (Sarris et al., 2013a).
Notably, in both studies there were no significant effects of kava on liver function or any adverse liver effects (Sarris et al., 2013b).
Together this data indicates that not only is a water-soluble root extract of a noble cultivar of kava a fast-acting effective anxiolytic, but it also produces less unfavourable side effects compared to conventional pharmacotherapies, and is (in these small samples) safe on the liver.
