Home >> Science of Kava

Kava has been traditionally used in Pacific Islander and Western Herbal medicine for centuries for the therapeutic benefits it possesses.

Fiji Kava, through 13 years of plant technology and scientific research, have identified specific varieties of kava (from the 200 varieties throughout the South Pacific) that possess a certain % level of kavalactones and chemo-type profiles found to be desirable for calming and soothing nerves, increasing mind relaxation, enhancing muscle relaxation and inducing sleep.

Our kava products are produced by high-quality GMP. Research exists showing that Noble kava can be effective in reducing anxiety and stress:

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.
