Kavalactones, the active ingredients, have been shown to have beneficial effects on cognitive function in animal studies. However, there is very little research on the effects of it on humans. In this blog post, we will discuss what it is, what the research says about its effects on cognition, and whether it is beneficial or not. Keep reading!
How can I use kava?
Kava can be enjoyed in a number of ways, including drinking it as a tea, using it in a smoothie, or blending it into your favorite recipe. It can also be taken in capsule form or as an extract. Kava is usually consumed prior to bedtime in order to promote relaxation and help with sleep.
What Is Kava?
The plant is a small, shrubby tree that is found in the Pacific Islands. The roots of the plant are ground and used to make a drink that is consumed for its psychoactive effects. It is also a drink made from the roots of the plant, which is native to the islands of the South Pacific. It has been used for centuries as a ceremonial beverage, and more recently as a natural remedy for anxiety and stress. It is thought to work by promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety without causing drowsiness.
It is a natural anxiolytic derived from the root of Piper methysticum. It has been used for thousands of years in the South Pacific. The plant has been shown in a number of studies to be more effective than a placebo in treating anxiety, with few negative effects.
It does not appear to have short-term tolerance problems greater than placebo, around 25% of placebo and kava users will need to increase their dose after four weeks. At low therapeutic dosages, the plant does not appear to have a negative impact on cognitive function and may even improve certain aspects of attention. It has been found in some studies to lower anxiety and improve mood, which are thought to contribute to enhanced female sexual function.
There have been reports of kava-induced liver damage, which has caused the EU, UK, and Canada to place limits on kava usage. However, a direct link between liver toxicity and kava consumption appears to be very uncommon. In most situations, there were additional probable contributing factors such as the use of other drugs, heavy drinking, and physical conditions. When using it, caution should be taken. Make sure the treatment is from a company with a good track record and has been produced from the root of the plant. If you have any liver issues, drink alcohol often, or use other medicines, don’t consume it. There has not yet been a long-term kava usage study.
