Info: 60 Vegetarian Capsules (250 mg per capsule)

Kava Kava is made from the roots of Piper methysticum, a shrub that grows in the western Pacific. It was traditionally crushed and boiled with water to consume, to help with anxiety, sleep, and sometimes to enhance cognition. The kavalactones are the main active constituent with relaxation effects in the Kava root, and depending on the symptoms you’re seeking to relieve, it can serve as a sleep aid, at higher doses; or be used for anxiety, at lower doses.
