What Makes Viti Kava Powder Premium Quality?

First we only buy noble varieties of kava. Tu dei kava varieties result in undesirable side effects such as headaches and nausea for a couple of days.

Secondly, our kava is only made from the lateral roots (waka) and basal roots (lewena). Pure waka powder which is what we sell at Viti Kava has a stronger effect compared to lewena. Under no circumstances should one consume kava powder which contains stems (kasa) or leaves. Pacific Islander natives have only consumed kava made from roots for centuries without any major side effects.

Thirdly, our kava is fresh and cleaned well. At Viti Kava we import new batches every 4 months and our kava processor cleans and packs to FDA standards.

Lastly the kava needs to be matured to at least 3 years. Kavalactone in kava roots is optimal when the plant is at 3 years of age and continually increases at a slower rate.

FAQ on Noble Kava Powder

Kava root comes from the kava plant; a plant that is in the pepper family. It originates from the South Pacific Islands. Kava goes by many names, yaqona, kawa-kawa, sakau, awa etc. Kava root is harvested, dried, and ground into a powder that is used to make a kava root tea.Kava is all-natural and has been a popular drink throughout Polynesia and Melanesia for centuries. It is gaining popularity in Australia as an all-natural way to ease stress and wind down at the end of the day. In the South Pacific, drinking kava is an integral part of traditional religious and cultural ceremonies and important village social occasions. Historically kava was also prepared and drank for medicinal purposes.
The Latin name for the kava plant is Piper Methysticum which translates as intoxicating pepper. The active ingredients in kava, known as kavalactones, interact with the limbic system of the brain. This includes the amygdala, the part of the limbic system that regulates emotions. As a result, Kava is well known to have a relaxing effect on the mind and body. Some of the benefits of kava shown from research studies are a reduction in anxiety, better and deeper sleep and be an effective substitute for alcohol.
Traditionally, you prepare a drink of kava like you might brew a tea. Add the kava root powder to a straining bag, for example, a muslin cloth. It doesn’t matter what kind of straining bag you use. Sometimes even women’s pantyhose are used as straining bags. Then steep the bag in warm water to begin a kava tea brew. The difference between kava root tea and regular tea is the kneading required to extract the good stuff from the root; the bag is kneaded in the water. This releases the active ingredients and turns the water a muddy brown color. Kava doesn’t look, or even taste good – but it feels good! Continue the kneading process until the tea is brewed. The surface of the water will be slightly shining. And all that is left in the straining bag are the coarse fibers of the root. These are either discarded or set aside for a subsequent rinsing and kneading, (a second wash), to create a weaker second brew.
When you drink good quality, potent kava the first thing you feel is your lips and mouth going slightly numb. This is normal. One of the active ingredients in kava has analgesic effects. The numbing is a sign you are drinking a good kava. When you drink kava you are likely to feel calm and content, a greater sense of wellbeing, happier, and perhaps even euphoric. Any feelings of fear, worry, or stress will diminish. Any troublesome thoughts racing through your mind will slow down. Your muscles will start to relax, your body will start to feel heavy and eventually, you may start to feel sleepy. How kava makes you feel will also depend greatly on the variety, quality and type of kava you drink. Higher quality, fresher kava is more potent. The effects of drinking kava tea are also determined by the variety of kava and its mix of kavalactones or active ingredients. The mix of kavalactones is identified by a chemotype that is given to each kava variety.

You’ll generally start to feel it kick in 5-15 minutes after drinking a shell of kava root tea. The first sensation you’ll feel is a numbing of the lips, tongue, and mouth. You can then expect to start feeling mental and physical relaxation soon after that. It is recommended that you drink kava on an empty stomach to ensure you feel its effects. If you drink kava on a full stomach, the effects may not kick-in. There are other reasons the effects of kava may not kick-in when you first start to drink it. Kava works with your body to produce its effects and sometimes that means your body will take time to adjust to receiving the active ingredients in the kava before it responds. In this instance, you may not feel the effects of kava until you’ve been drinking kava for a few days or even weeks consecutively. This is known as Reverse Tolerance.

How long the effects of kava root tea last depends on the variety of kava. A good heady kava variety should uplift your mood and make you feel happier within 30 minutes. The euphoric and uplifting effects of a good quality kava may last for anywhere between 1-3 hours while the stress relieving and relaxing effects may linger even longer. Heavier varieties of kava have more prolonged effects. After a few hours, you may start to feel sleepy as your muscles relax and your body starts to feel heavy. How long the effects of kava last will also depend on how many kava drinks you have. You can have more than one serving size in a kava drinking session.

Kava, if consumed correctly, is very safe. The World Health Organization’s Codex Alimentarius concluded that kava has had at least a 1500-year history of relatively safe use and that kava as a traditional beverage is safe for human consumption. Kava consumption is self-limiting. If you drink too much kava you will start to feel nauseous – it’s kava’s way of telling you, you’ve had enough for the night. Excessive daily consumption of kava over a long period of time can lead to minor dry or itchy skin known as Kava Dermopathy. This is a completely reversible instance and the simple solution is to take a break from drinking kava for a while.One European Study that concluded that kava was linked to liver damage led people to wonder whether kava tea is safe was later refuted for its bad science. Unfortunately, the prevalence of misinformation stemming from that study dominates online and regularly turns up in badly researched articles.Learn more. There have been a very, very small number of instances of kava being linked to liver damage. As with any herbal or pharmaceutical substance, there is always the possibility of an adverse reaction and the risk of a person being allergic to the product. But this is extremely rare. However, anyone with pre-existing liver problems is advised not to drink kava.
