With one of the highest concentrations available, our kava extract powder has been vigorously HPLC-tested to confirm its 30% purity. This kava extract powder is beyond the potency that LiftMode has offered in the past, and is a close rival to other products in our kava family lineup.
Kava root has historically been used as a ceremonial herb in the Pacific Islands, but has gained mainstream popularity for its calming, stress-reducing, and sociability-enhancing properties. Our kava extract powder is a liver-friendly form extracted from Noble Vanuatu Kava root.
As a stable, free flowing powder, LiftMode kava extract powder is a potent addition to calming or mood brightening stacks, and its deep, peppery taste can be avoided entirely with the use of an oblate disc. Alternatively, seasoned Kava purists may prefer to simply stir it into a traditional cold water suspension, a method of delivery most similar to the ceremonial serving of kava in the pacific islands. Source your own coconut shell cups, and relaxation is at your fingertips.
Kava Root Extract Benefits and Uses
Kava root extract is used for a variety of benefits. Many use kava for its strong relaxing effects, which may also enhance sleep quality and improve mood and sociability. The extract of kava root contains kavalactones, which are responsible for its mild MAOI and norepinephrine reuptake inhibiting properties. Though the mechanism of action is still somewhat unclear, these bioactivities continue to be studied.
The potent calming properties of kava root are what make it the perfect choice for an evening routine or a laid-back social event.
Kava root is known by a number of alternative names, including:
- Piper methysticum
- Kava Pepper
- Ava Pepper
- Kava Kava
- Intoxicating Pepper
In the US, supplementing with Kava Kava is considered to be relatively safe when taken at the recommended serving size, for short periods of time. However, there are some considerations for liver safety with regards to long-term use – especially when taken at larger serving sizes.
