Details & Ingredients

PRODUCT FEATURES


Kava is prepared from the rhizome and root of noble varieties of Piper methysticum plants 4-6 years old. Our Kava is grown and harvested in the islands of the South Pacific.
The herb is extracted in small batches with Certified Organic cane alcohol for potency and to maintain the balance of phytochemicals as they exist in the plant. We assure herb identity via macroscopic and organoleptic analysis, then confirm it through methods such as HPTLC fingerprinting specific to each herb. Our liquid extracts are easily dispensed, taken in liquid form and added to water or other liquid.
Suggested Use
Shake Well Before Using
Add 0.7 ml (approximately 1/8 teaspoon) to 2 oz. of water or juice, 2 to 5 times per day. Best taken between meals.
